20% off gift cards from American Airlines, Lowes, Southwest, Staples, and many more!

UPDATE 11:30 PM 11/29/2013: BF20 code is working again (it has stopped working this morning).  Apparently, they’ll be releasing new codes each morning. At the top of their page it now says:

An abundance of smiles, our Black Friday code, “BF20” made a lot of people smile. We will be releasing a few codes each morning at 8AM PST so that more people can smile.

UPDATE 9PM EST 11/28/2013: BF20 code is now live

There are many great deals coming out this weekend for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc.  One of my favorites is this offer from TwoSmiles by HP.  Buy a printable gift card and get 20% off with the code BF20.

TwoSmiles_BlackFriday_2013

TwoSmiles has a large list of gift cards to choose from, but the discount code will not work for Amazon or Groupon gift cards.  Note that each time this site offers gift card discounts, they sell out quickly.  Unfortunately, I don’t know whether the code will become live late Thursday night or Friday morning. 

Here are the gift cards available as of Wednesday evening:

2013-11-27 20.04.45

2013-11-27 20.05.17

2013-11-27 20.05.30

Caution:  Not everything is all smiles with TwoSmiles.  Please read this caution from a reader:

In late October, I purchased $300 worth of Sears gift cards (using various discount codes).  One of the orders canceled, but $250 of charges went through on my credit cards.

I only received four “here is your card” emails.  Each card was a unique Halloween design, but two of them included the same gift card number.

I never received “here is your card” emails for the final two, and I received an email receipts for only one of them.

The “print card” links in all receipt emails lead to an “out of stock” error message.

There is no phone number to contact TwoSmiles.  I’ve filled out a request on their technical support form online and hope they’ll help me resolve this; if not I will be filing a dispute with the credit cards.

 

Good luck getting in on this deal if you’re willing to brave it!  And, have a very happy Thanksgiving!

The site is down right now. Not uncommon that they have issues during a sale.

Thx FlybyNight…doesn’t instill confidence, but I guess when it’s a good deal, sometimes you have to take the risks (and pain) of having to deal w/ their cruddy IT infrastructure.

Site is currently “down for maintenance.” Maybe they are girding their loins for the onslaught.

Will the purchase count as a cash advance? Specifically, I would like to use my spg business Amex to meet minimum spend.

To follow up on the caution above, I did receive fairly quick (within 24 hrs) response from TwoSmiles via email. They were able to fix one of the $50 purchases; the $25 is still being resolved. (Thanks to this post, I will remember follow up with them and see how it stands.)

Disappointed to see a $100 limit on Marriott cards. Was thinking about making a big purchase to support an upcoming vacation, but I don’t want to make that many multiple purchases. Oh well.

Anyone else getting a message that the code has expired?

Paul

Since code only works starting tomorrow, not surprising you get eror message today?

Please post when it goes live. Thank you!

The Marriott gift card here is a TravelCard, which has limits worth reading like it can’t earn any points. Keep it in mind.

The website is really slow now. I’ve purchased $350 in various gift cards, and now the site is rejecting purchases, even using different credit cards and email addresses. Guessing their server is overloaded?

Hi,

I used this code around 4PM Pacific for a Southwest $100 gift card and it worked fine.

Thanks!

looks like BF20 is dead.

Seeing that Staples was part of the deal, is it possible to use Staples gift cards on Staples.com to buy Visa gift cards?

Got two SWA cards. Put both numbers in to the SWA website and verified they are active and working cards. Thanks a ton.

11:35pm CST, the website shows this message

“Our BlackFriday Coupon “BF20″ has been used for the moment – thanks for the overwhelming amount of smiles.”

Still as of 6:42am CST…
Our Black Friday coupon, BF20 has been used for the moment – thanks for the overwhelming amount of smiles.

I still tried to use it and it just errors out. Deal is dead 🙁

I get the same messages you guys get. No luck. What is going on?

Anita

Maury,

I think many hit the code early and hard and they sold out before they were supposed to go live.

Bf20 is not working at 1218 EST. disappointing waste of time.

Where did u find the code? Or where do u look to see if they’ve updated it as BF20 looks done.

Has twosmiles explained why they limit the number of uses of the code? It’s not like they are shipping physical cards to purchasers. Seems like a lot of effort which ends in frustration.

hmm… every time I try to purchase 4×100 lands end it keeps saying transaction error.

Argh! Missed it by 3 seconds. My code was working, started to create another card, and when I finished–bam! “Our Black Friday sale is over.”

Not sure if this means “over, over,” or “over till tomorrow at 8.”
