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.

Relatively, but https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/manu...ved-my-fu.html

Also, depending on your mix of cards getting shut down by Chase may be more painful than other issuers. I did a little on my CIU card last month then realized it wasn't worth the risk as my business expected spend is relatively low. I still do a little on my personal Chase hotel card but even that I'll throttle and resist the temptation to go all in because I get a lot of value from my other Chase cards.

Given CIP only gives 1% I assume you are working on a SUB, and for that volume you are probably OK but if you have normal spending you can do instead is it really worth an 80,000 UR gamble?

I read at least a couple of posts here stating that there's no longer $15k limit. I'm getting a credit card error placing an order which would put me over $15k. The CC is fine, i checked. Not sure if it's related to 15k limit or not. Also, perhaps still too early in the morning and I'm not thinking yet, but I can't make sense out of this Wiki line: "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." So is the limit 30K or 15k? Per account.

Unless you get curtailed somehow, my understanding is that the limit is $60k/month/account. That's what mine is. I wouldn't try to get around that by opening multiple accounts.

Are you saying you were able to put orders within 30 days totaling up to $60K? from one single GCM account?

Not exactly $60k, I did $40k.

FWIW here's another reference https://www.pointchaser.com/giftcards-com-vs-giftcardmall/

Ok thanks! I'll play with trying different cards or waiting a little, maybe it was just a glitch.

I looked back in your previous posts and I noticed that you mentioned you got an error when trying to place an order over $15k, that could be because there's a $10k per day limit.

In my experience, the current GCM limit is $10K for an order and you have to skip a day between orders of that size--so an average at most of $5K per day. I have seen no other posts saying you can do $25K a day in a single account. The $60K per month limit is for portal cashback payouts, which only recently has been enforced.

The approval process takes 5 successful transactions $9-10K purchases with Simon Mall. People are approved up to $25k daily purchases. I'll send you a pm.

Sorry for not being super specific, thank you ogg for having my back! Yes I'd never go over $60k/ month because it wouldn't be worth not getting the payout.

Just to be clear, although you can buy Simon cards at simon.giftcardmall.com, that site has a separate login from accounts at www.giftcardmall.com--and purchases of Simon Visa cards do NOT earn portal cashback. Last time I used the online Simon retail site was a year or so ago, and the limit then was $5K per day. The limit at Simon malls is $10K per day which can be raised to $25K per day

Back a year ago when you last used the Simon retail site most portals did pay cashback. Now, most of the portals do not.
