What portal is currently offering the highest payout for GCM?
Check cashbackmonitor and cashbackholic for current payouts. Be sure to review the T&C for GCM at each portal as some offer lower payouts for Visa GCs.

Amex gift cards cannot be used to buy Visa gift cards

VGC issued by metabank. Cards come activated.

-------------------------

Monthly Limit is 30K per GCM account for a revolving 30 days. Once you hit 15K, GCM will display a message on the screen letting you know you hit the limit.

Start out slow 1k and then another 1k - they will call to verify the card, and shipping address. Next order they will not call. Orders under 2k have free shipping.

If you get this error:

This transaction was not completed. The transaction was not submitted correctly, or has been declined by your card issuer. You can try again with a different card or review your payment information for any necessary corrections.

- A Few people report it is blocked for the day, try again the next day. MOST ppl report being permanently blocked. Or you entered a wrong 3-digit security number.
GCM recommends using the Chrome or Firefox browsers. Be sure you are not using an ad blocker and not disabling any cookie settings (3rd party, tracking, etc.) from the default or you may get this error.

Direct support Numbers is 877.426.2551


Warning: Orders can be lost or stolen. Call to have the cards reissued or canceled. Orders usually arrive in 5-10 days.

Check your cc for pending or posted payments and call about your order if you are concerned it is taking a long time for delivery. Sometimes GCM was taking up to 2 weeks for delivery.

I'm glad someone else experienced this issue. I got it yesterday and then again this morning...both times from Chrome.

I finally broke out my laptop and ordered from there (using Chrome) and it worked fine.

Is it possible that Chrome updated on my main desktop computer recently, but not on my laptop?

A power outage yesterday caused my computer to reboot and when I tried it this morning thru BF/chrome it worked just fine. Go figure.

MCGC

Just like to confirm that GCM only offers VGC, not MCGC.

I know GC offers MCGC, but the total cost is higher. Any other sites that offer MCGC with low costs? Simon Mall?

Within like half an hour after placing an order, GCM emails me saying that the order has been cancelled. HELP! I tried calling them but they don't know anything, they keep telling me to "make sure that everything on your card matches your GCM account". AND IT DOES. So wth?
what's the rejection msg? or the order went thru but later got cancelled?

It's the stand reply once you've been banned. Can try setting up another account, but typically takes a year or two to be unbanned. Happened to me twice in the last 7 years - no rhyme or reason and no amount of talking to BHN will get you unbanned. Seems their fraud algorithms just go haywire and out of the blue you get banned for no apparent reason.

I called them and they said it had something to do with my IP, but in the end they got my pending order to go through and I received the cards. Hopefully I will be able to order from now on, but I am going slow.

I've noticed that on the page where you enter the card amount and recipient, if the "Recipient Name" field defaults to lower case, I will get the HTTP 405 error on the next page. If the Recipient field defaults to upper case text (the normal behavior), the order will complete successfully
