Quick Tip: Don’t buy GiftCardMall Visa cards (except as a gift)


I received an email today from SimplyBestCoupons advertising 2% cash back on Visa gift card purchases.  That sounds pretty good, right?  Even now that GiftCardMall has begun limiting Visa card values to $250 each, a case could be made that they’re worth buying if you get 2% cash back. Unfortunately, as reported by Doctor of Credit, Visa gift cards from GiftCardMall are no longer PIN enabled.  This means that they can’t be used to load Bluebird or Serve.  In fact, they can’t be used for any PIN based transactions.  I’d recommend staying away from these unless you actually want to buy them as a gift for someone to be used in place of regular credit card spend.
