No-fee Visa Gift Cards at Macerich Malls this week

A reader tweeted us yesterday to give us a tip that he heard Macerich Malls would have no purchase fees on Mall Visa Gift Cards today through August 19th, 2017. I found this promotion listed on the home page of a Macerich Mall.

The Deal

  • No purchase fees on Visa Gift Cards at Macerich Malls today through August 19th, 2017
  • Participating malls can be found on pages 8-9 in this PDF (thanks to Aaron in the comments at Doctor of Credit)

Key Terms

  • Maximum load of $500 per card
  • Limit of 5 Visa Gift Cards in a single transaction per customer per day during the promotion
  • Not available online
  • Gift cards issued by Sunrise Bank

Bottom line

This is a great find if you live near one of these malls as it provides an opportunity for up to $2500 in fee-free spend per day through Saturday. Most Macerich Malls will require ID and record your information if you are buying any substantial quantity. However, it’s an easy way to pick up some miles or cash back. I’m not aware of any cards that offer a bonus on spend at Macerich Malls, so it would be wise to choose a card that earns a high return on everyday spend.

So far this year I’ve been able to liquidate meta’s at Walmart, Bancorp at the post office and us bank mc’s at the post office.

What are liquidation options for Sunrise Bank debit gc’s?


Ughh, closest mall to Dallas is several hours away in Lubbock. They sold their stake in a mall close to me a few years ago.


Loadable to bluebird?

Computer system down Aug 14 at 7:00 pm in Rosemont,I’ll. Unable to purchase cards.


Man, the people at Flatirons Crossing in CO were AMAZINGLY helpful. They knew everything about this promo, about why we buy gift cards, and welcomed me back to buy $2500/day through Saturday and up to $10k (with fees) on any given day…as well as hooking me up with an alert for the next promo. I’ve never seen such an MS friendly staff ever. Pleasant surprise 🙂


Are they sold in every store in the malls?


would it make sense to use Starwood amex for this get to 20k transfer and get 5k bonus ? Same question for Plastiq for mortgage

Just Curious

Anyone visit multiple locations on the same day?
