This is the thread for 2018. The previous discussion can be found here.

Check cash back portals to help cover the fees. Around the holidays there is usually free shipping. http://www.cashbackmonitor.com/cashb...giftcards.com/

Limit 5k/ every 48 hours (2 orders under 2.5k including the fees). However, system will reportedly "error out" if more than two orders are attempted within two days.

Cards must be activated before use. Orders usually arrive in 5-7 days.

Select the free letter on the left instead of paying for a card on the right of the screen to save money.

Warning: Orders can be lost or stolen. Call to have them reissued.

Anyone have luck getting tracking to work on tcb with a pre-designed card other than the one discussed? Feel free to PM me. An order with 4 of the "correct" cards and one "incorrect" failed to track last night, just over 19 hours ago. Not sure if it's me hitting a velocity limit or the cards in the order though. It's my 8th order in 8 days. Order number 7 took ~10 hours to track and all previous orders tracked in ~1 hour. Besides the cards ordered the method has been the same, and the order is showing as a click through on tcb.

I have ordered the "correct" one with a mix of 4 visa and 1 MC ,which got tracked properly. You might have hit the limit.

I swear, getting nervous and asking FT is the best method to resolve issues lol. Just showed up as tracked, at 1% though. This is for 5 pre-designed mcgc btw.

When I got nervous and asked about the 10 hour order I got my email shortly after posting here.

Two a Day?

I often do 2 orders a day, but space them by about 4 hours. Is this 4 hour delay a common practice? Is it even necessary?
Its been about an hour since my first order of the day. I’d like to get my second order in the works , but will be too busy later in the day.
I don’t want to screw up a long successful roll.

At least I can get back to my more manageable number of orders now. That didn't last long.

I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did... After payout I'm planning to ask about the 2 orders that didn't track vis TCB

I do my 2 orders a day back to back, minutes apart, with no issues.

Any obvious MS like GCcom is not recommended for min spend in case Amex audits your account. Don't want to risk getting bonus clawbacked
