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.

Anyone have any updates on their $0 transactions? I'm still waiting to hear from TCB and Yazing.

Anyone get an answer on the $0 transactions or get one to track properly after getting $0 transactions? I've been holding off until February in case its due to limits.

I just noticed that my GC.com purchases via iConsumer/TCB haven't tracked for the last few months . I submitted the relevant tickets but of course haven't heard back.

All of them? Or after a certain day? Also, did it track at $0 or not at all (big difference here). I think mine started coming back as $0 transactions around Jan 11.

Is anyone ordering Mastercard GCs to get 1.25% cashback? If so are they working to buy MOs at Walmart? Thanks

Yep, all of them. I know what you mean but unfortunately it wasn't $0, it didn't track at all. I have an inquiry open with TCB and iConsumer but these don't expect an answer anytime soon...

Chase told me tonight that my purchases at Giftcards.com don't count toward the minimum spend on a new Hyatt card. I searched the forums and can't find anything to back this up. I received the regular points but not the new member bonus associated with the minimum spend. T&C's don't call out gift cards specifically.

pretty sure Chases t&c allows them to do whatever they want whenever they want whenever they feel like it.

Do we need to manually request the 1.25% TCB cashback or does it happen automatically?

Have to request it, a bit of a PITA.
