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.

Sadness, my special predesigned mastercard that gave a desirable payout percentage stopped as of an order from last night. Yazing updated with decreased payout. That was good for a 6 weeks. On the hunt again I guess.

Does anyone have experience with a private mailbox (ups store) and deliveries from gcc? I'm trying to send deliveries to mine but the order submission page says the address is not recognized.

Me too. Guess its at least a good time to scale back given the holidays always make it difficult for me to do this.

With the last round (which ended a couple days ago,) the V version was paying the increased rate too, fyi.

I always use Ste instead of Box. So when the address is:

1234 Street Name Unit 9 Box 105
I do
1234 Street Name Ste 9-105

It works for me.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried that and every way I can think of, and after order submission it continues to say that the address is unrecognized.
My UPS store’s address has no suite number, so in theory it should be easier. I’ve tried placing the box number on the address 1 line in several formats, as well as the second line in several formats. I’m wondering if gcc blacklisted this address or something. Simon online works, and I’m going to change my billing address for gcm to try with them (requires large orders to go to billing address.) Otherwise, I guess I’ll have rented a mailbox that won’t get much use for the 6 mos I purchased.
Theres really no way to try an address before renting either. It just goes through or errors out.

Glad Im not the only one. I never could get GCs com to ship to my box even using a verified address. Like you said, no problem with Simon or GCM.
