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.

Orders from the last two days are still "submitted" and not "processing", my CC was charged $1 as a temp charge but the full $2K charge doesn't show as pending. Anyone else having this issue?

Submitted an order on 5/11, 4 @500. Full amount went pending on my card. Cleared on 5/14. Shipping notice came in via email this morning. Expect the cards on Friday or Saturday based on prior shipping times.

Yes, my order from the 15th only says submitted. Yazing already sent the tracking so it looks promising that the charge we be completed soon.

A lot more of us are ordering from them and a lot of us are now going to WM so I hope the end isn't near.

Just found that I have a second GCcom account, but haven't ever used it. Would it cause issues with portal cashback if I used two GCcom accounts to one portal account?

Still working fine with VGCs? SBC never stopped working on GCcom, it was just the VGCs: "No cash back on Visa Gift Cards" Have you received cashback already for May purchases of VGCs?

I'm assuming you mean credit for the purchases, cause it takes months to get actual cashback check. And yes I get credit for purchases within a day usually. Haven't bought any visa since last month, and they're still pending. Usually takes at least a month to go from pending to approved.

Forgot. This year, gcm seemed to take a lot longer to approve. Even when I used yazing. I just had a big purchase from mid february approved last week. Took 3 months.
