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.

Portal & Third Party GC.com Purchases

Some online retail stores send all GC orders though Giftcard.com. My understanding is that we do not any portal rebate from either the original store, or from GC.com. Just like to confirm it.

Without portal, it is not very attractive.

Did we ever get a definitive answer to this? I made a few purchases through different shopping portals this month and am not sure if they will get clawed back. I also want to do a few more and not sure it's worth trying.

Im aware you can make purchases with Apple Pay on the website, but can the cards you buy be added to Apple Pay? Specifically do the virtual Visa gift cards work this way?

So there's a 10% sale going on virtual VGC but my orders keep getting canceled. Wonder what's triggering it.

Not sure if this has been discussed earlier on this thread. Does the visa $250 card no longer work in Safeway?

While trying to place an order for VGC's over the past couple days I keep getting this error message as soon as I click the "Submit Order" button: "We're sorry, but we are unable to complete your request at this time. Please try again."

I've tried multiple different payment methods but it makes no difference. Have I been flagged/blocked from placing orders?

I have received the same error message several times in the past few days. Looks like it is a web site issue not specific to just you. I went under the Contact Us tab and filled it out. I hope to hear back from giftcards.com soon.

I'm wondering this too. And it is per portal account, or GCDC account?

Hey Guys, what is the course of action if you order eVISA's from GCC and they do not email them out after 24 hours ? I see a "contact us" but no phone number to call into.

Was the order cancelled ? If yes then the pending charge will drop , if you are not seeing any order cancellation and then call.

Thank you I wen to the site and chatted online with a rep and just had them re routed to another email address, have no idea what happened to my main one, I of course checked spam and I certainly didn't implement any email filters.

It seems no one is buying anything from GCC?

I tried to place order(s) at GCC. But all order got cancelled right away. They did not even go through card charges. Every time, GCC sent email,

We had to cancel your order #xxxxx because it didn’t pass our screening process. Online security is important—like really important—so we take every measure we can to protect the people shopping with us.

We suggest you check out your billing and shipping info—there might be an oopsie in there that needs fixing!

Please note, no funds will be collected from the payment method used for this order*.

I had no problem placing orders before. I have a couple accounts. I also tried to use guest account. Also changed credit card.

I searched online. Some people have the same problem. They had to create a new account. I created a new account before and order went through. Just wonder if there is anything else than new account.
