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.

I understood that after 4/30, both GCM and GCC will no longer give CBs? I thought the email sent by Adam said the negotiated CBs were only up to Apr 30 unless there's another update that MCGCs will continue to earn CBs on GCC?

I believe it’s just VGCs not giving cash back after April 30.

Any idea what % Yazing is paying on MCGC. The website says “ up to 2%”

Planning on buying a bunch of MCGCs before a trip south. Will they liquidate like VGCs at grocery chains like Kroger and places like Publix or will I need to do the change payment like at WM?

well, looks like Giftcards.com does not let you purchase $2500 at a time. They give you this message:
  • We're sorry, you have exceeded our daily purchase amount by $1000.00. Please lower the total denomination to $1000.00 so we can process this order.
Not that it terribly matters, what with the last day being 4/30. But still. Sneaky to suddenly lower the limit.

    This is an error that I've been getting for a while now. Gcm can't count up to 5000.

    Anybody have any insights as to why cashback (forwarded commission) would be provided for MGC but not VGC?

    Mainly wondering as to whether we should expect VGC to return, or MGC to disappear too in the future.

    Do orders track through USPS Informed Delivery like GCM?

    If you pay for the trackable shipping (required for larger orders) it will like any other USPS package.

    Just curious about this as well. I don't see anything at SW indicating they've stopped paying commissions.
