giftcards.com master thread (2018 onwards)

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.

Yazing usually tracks within a day until 4/16. My 4/17 purchase didn't track so far.

Anyone order from GC.com yesterday and not get an email from TCB? They are usually super fast with the notification but its been 24 hours and nothing. On a side note, GCM now is lightning quick...less than 2 hours LOL

I've been having this issue for weeks now. Sometimes tracking email shows up in a hour, sometimes it takes a few days. However TCB always comes through in the end, even though it may take a few days.

SimplyBest hasn't tracked my 2 4/17 purchases either. Did Yazing eventually track?

I just noticed that after 4/17 none of my Yazing transactions have tracked. Did anyone hear anything from adam?

No, Yazing didn't track my 4/16 purchase so far. Fortunately, my 4/19 purchase already tracked by Yazing. Clearly there's been a problem at Yazing or GCcom.

Under statements and activity tab on your desktop browser in your Amex account. Right side shows “beta preview”

i think it’s a GCcom problem. My SBC purchases on GCcom didn’t track on 4/17.
