[Expired] $500 easy spend: $3 off Visa Gift cards + 1% back

Sorry, this deal is no longer available.  Do you want to be alerted about new deals as they’re published?  Click here to subscribe to Frequent Miler's Quick Deals.

Through October 26th (or perhaps sooner — never know when something like this may end early) GiftCardMall is offering $3 off on Visa Gift Cards with coupon code SWEET17. That should stack with 1% portal cash back, meaning that a $500 gift card will cost about $498 — good for a $2 profit and free rewards from your credit card. This may not necessarily be “easy” spend as Gift Card Mall cancels many orders — but it’s easy if you can get an order through.

The Deal

  • $3 off on Visa Gift Cards from GiftCardMall
  • Should stack with 1% back
  • Link to GiftCardMall (though you’ll want to go through a shopping portal to get there)

Key Terms

  • Discount is good through 10/26/17
  • Only valid on physical (mail delivery) Visa Gift Cards

Quick Thoughts

This is an easy way to get in some spend if you can get an order through at Gift Card Mall. As noted above, you should be aware that they are prone to cancelling orders, so there is no guarantee that you’ll get an order through. However, if you can, it would be nice to get a $500 gift card at negative cost. Most (all?) of the Visa Gift Cards at GiftCardMall should be PIN-enabled. Check the terms of the portal you choose as some exclude the purchase of Visa Gift Cards, but there are several options at 1%.

Is there anything known or predictable about why and when Gift Card Mall cancels orders? I recently got a gift card order cancelled by Cardpool. It was the first time they ever cancelled and I’ve bought there a lot. They told me something vague about ‘digital footprint’ and high risk that didn’t make much sense.

Usually the use of promo codes kills any portal payout

dont use the promo, it will kill the cash back. also why would $3 off make the card $498. Seems like a really sloppy post

Nick, I haven’t read up on GCM in a while. Wasn’t it only the silver visa cards that worked with a pin. Can you now order any visas? Thanks.

There was a short time when certain GCM visas did not have PINs. But that has changed, now all GCM visas have PINs.

i can’t remember…does GCM allow you to put a name on a GC? Makes it easier for Serve loads.

FYI TCB tracked on $1k order (ie -$6) on non discounted price of GCs.

What are some non money order, non serve load methods to cheaply convert card to cash?
