Gift Card Mall $25 back on $500 load?
Gift Card Mall is currently advertising a seemingly too good to be true promo for their 5 Back Visa Gift Card. Through December 10th, they say that you’ll get “5% of the total load value of your Five Back Visa Gift Card now” then get up to 5% back later:
The “5 Back Later” part is a standard feature of the card, which is pretty good by itself. See: Five Back Visa Gift Card. A new way to earn 5X and save money? The “5 Back Now” is the part that seems too good to be true.
I went through the steps of buying a $500 Visa gift card online, but never saw any more details about the promotion. They certainly didn’t discount the gift card by 5%. I think that “5 Back Now” means that if you initially load $500 onto a card, it will arrive with 5% more value: $525. I didn’t try it though. Gift Card Mall always cancels all of my online orders, so I can’t test it out. Readers: Please comment below if you try this to let us know if you really get $25 free (less fees).
But it is true! This wasn’t working originally, but now, when I put two $500 gift cards into my cart, I see the 5% discount immediately!
Don’t forget to start your shopping at a cash back portal too! Giving Assistant is currently offering 1.25% cash back for GiftCardMall Visa gift cards.

Fee Free Cards at Simon Mall
As reported by Doctor of Credit, Simon Mall is waiving fees on 5 Back Visa Simon gift cards with value loads of $300 or more between December 5th and December 11th. It is unclear if this deal is available at all Simon Malls or just select malls. Please see the Doctor of Credit post for more details. It appears that these gift cards may be slightly different from the 5 Back Visa gift cards I’ve written about previously. For example, the eligible stores for receiving 5% back may vary. Please read the fine print if you plan to use the cards in that way.
