giftcards.com master thread (2018 onwards)

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

Giftcards.com (and giftcardmall) now limit Visa loads to $250. No more $500 cards, Change happened sometime in 2020.

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

With masters you need to change payment type to debit before they enter the amount and hit enter in the register.
Swipe and hit "Cancel" or "Change Payment" button to select "Debit" on the screen and have them enter amount and then enter the pin.
Thanks for the info. So the complicated steps are applied to Mastercard issued by both US Bank & Metabank?

as of today Yazing shows 0%...just a few days ago they had a note that 0% will start AFTER 4/30. Yet it's only 4/27 and they already have 0%. I hear from some people who ordered yesterday, that they are tracking 0% as well. back to Simon mall, I guess

My order for MC cards for 2k was cancelled within 30 minutes. Never happened before. My first order after a gap of year.

Another Yazing email was sent out-

Subject- Commissions on Visa Giftcards Back till 4/30

We were able to resolve the mistake with Giftcards and Giftcardmall dropping to 0% on Visa Giftcards early. They have pushed through commissions on all the 0% orders that came through yesterday and those will be confirmed and sent out with tomorrow’s transaction notifications. Additionally the commission terms have been re-activated until the end of the month, so you have 3 more days to earn commissions on Visa gift cards.

I saw Adam posted this on a blog so hopefully CBs will still be paid for orders on or before 4/30.

Wish TCB would do the same. Still shows as pending $0 for my GCM orders.

So who is doing MCGC? Never bought through Yazing but they appear to have 1.5% cashback on MCGC, are they legit? Mamibear have you ordered through them?

so, if buying $2k the cb would be $30, while the cost after all the fees plus s&h is about $35, correct?

I believe so, but I was hoping someone who has ordered MCGC can confirm.

yes, yazing is legit and Adam responds to issues quickly. I reached the limit middle of April so have not ordered there lately.

I ordered MCGC yesterday and today they tracked at 1.25% so I sent a message to Adam at Yazing because the site says 1.5%.
My VGC order from the 26th tracked at 1.50% after first tracking at zero.

Update about MCGC:
Yazing got back to me and said - No, I just doubled checked their commission rates. Mastercards are at 1.25% until the end of the month, and then it when the Visa amount drops to 0% the MC rate will bump up to 1.5%
