5X Earnings at GiftCard Mart
GiftCard Mart sent out an email today that their merchant category code has been reclassified and you can now expect 5x the earnings on certain card purchases. They claim to have tested purchases with several different cards and have received both 5X Ultimate Rewards Points as well as 3X the earnings on Thank You Points.
As you all know, last week we were absolutely crushed when we got news that PayPal Digital Gifts and Card Cash were no longer coded to receive 5x Ultimate Rewards points. This is a great option if your card happens to be in stock on GiftCard Mart. Unfortunately, they have a small database of available cards with many being out of stock. Hopefully, this new development will drive some business their way and they will increase their stock. This is definitely a valid option going forward and will help soften the blow of last week’s news. Click here for more ideas on how to deal with gift card purchases going forward.
Here are your expected earnings on each of these cards when shopping at GiftCard Mart:
- Chase Ink Cash/Classic (Visa or Mastercard Versions): Earn 5% Cashback
- Chase Ink Bold/Plus (Visa or Mastercard Versions): Earn 5x Ultimate Rewards
- Chase Ink Preferred (Visa): Earn 3x Ultimate Rewards
- Citi AT&T Access More (Mastercard) : Earn 3x Thank You Points
This helps a little and I’m looking forward to making some purchases on GiftCard Mart. I would love to see comments from anyone who has made a purchase with them in the last month and if they did in fact code as 5x.
