A few weeks ago I reported that GiftCards.com had disappeared from portals (see: “What happened to GiftCards.com?”). Now, they’re back.

And, Yazing is offering 2% cash back (this worked for me with one test purchase, but a reader reported that the portal stopped tracking after his first two purchases):
And, as reported by EndPoint, Dollar Dig is offering 1.2% (this is another portal I haven’t yet tried):
Visa gift cards from GiftCards.com
There has been a lot of confusion about gift cards from GiftCards.com. One issue is that the name of the merchant is very similar to another: GiftCardMall.com. Another issue is that the Visa gift cards from GiftCards.com are issued by Bancorp which is the same company that issues Vanilla brand Visa gift cards (which are known to have problems at Walmart in denominations of $50 or more). Here are a few clarifications:
- Visa gift cards from GiftCards.com have PINs. The PIN is shown when you register your gift card online. You can, optionally, set your own PIN at that point as well. Visa gift cards from GiftCardMall, though, are sometimes fulfilled by Incentive Card Labs and come without PINs.
- Visa gift cards from GiftCards.com have been known to work fine as debit cards at Walmart (to load Bluebird, for example). However, there have been a few recent reader reports in which readers were unable to use the cards. It is unclear whether this was a temporary issue, an issue with the readers’ Bluebird or Serve cards, or a real issue with the Visa gift cards themselves (any additional reader data points would be welcome).
