GiftCardMall Reverts Back
Update: As of 5pm Pacific, the site has reverted once again to the newer version with a $250 limit. You can find out more details of the new site and the fees associate with it here.
This morning I wrote about the new GiftCardMall website. In addition to adding hundreds of new designs and overhauling their fee and shipping structures, the company instituted a new $250 limit on the purchase of Visa gift cards.
As hundreds of readers saw this morning, the website looked different and was overhauled. Well guess what. It has reverted back. As of 3PM PT on 6/10/2015, the website now acts like it did prior to today. All of those new designs are gone and what is left is what we saw previously.
My guess is that GiftCardMall is going to be rolling out their new website with all of those fancy designs and changes soon and maybe this morning was a test. I have no contact with the company, so cannot confirm if the $250 limit will come back or if this morning’s change was otherwise a test.
I also noticed this morning that both the Simon Gift Cards and Macerich Gift Cards sites through GiftCardMall were down. They both have made a reappearance as well, so who knows what is going on. All I can say is that for now we can just pretend that this morning didn’t happen.
What I Wouldn’t Do
If you were already planning on purchasing gift cards from GiftCardMall, you may want to go ahead with your purchase. (Top Cashback has the highest portal rates at .5% – Personal referral link) With that said, as described the other day, GiftCardMall has been cancelling many people’s orders and for larger purchases they will require you to fill out a form with more information.
For now we have a reprieve from whatever happened earlier. Considering the site that we saw this morning looked to be enhanced from the old site, I am guessing it is a new version that will be implemented soon. At least for today, you can still buy up to $500 Visa gift cards which will make many people happy.
