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.

Yeah, I had already - wasn't terribly informative regarding my query. I think the /r/churning chase shutdown thread perhaps has more info.

I've been reading more shutdown stories involving Chase CCs from app discussion groups and some are posted as comments in blogs. The common denominator lately is purchase from GCdotcom, GCM and Simon online. I think many of those whose cards have been shutdown don't discuss it in public sites like FT to protect their other cards that have not been shutdown. It is really up to the individual to take the risks inspite of warning from others. When MSing, everything seems fine until the moment they find their accounts closed.

This is news to me. The common denominator used to be applying too fast or at lol/24 for new Chase cards. Also some reports of ramping up spending but nothing specific to GCC/GCM.

How long does it take for Yazing to show the purchase on their dashboard? TCB had it within an hour or two.
