Giftcards.com isn’t often talked about, but they do sell Visa gift cards online. Normally their program isn’t too attractive since the cards cost $4.95 each and carry a $1.99 shipping fee. To put it simply, they are too expensive compared to other options.
Thankfully there is a promotion that changes the math. Through July 8, GiftCards.com is offering free shipping with the code INDEPENDENCE. This brings the cost of a $500 card down to $504.95. That price is of course decent, but not the cheapest option around.
There are a few limitations and things you should know about this sale:
- The maximum purchase is $1,500 since higher amounts require a method of shipping that the code doesn’t cover.
- These cards are issued by Bancorp (same bank as Vanilla) and thus don’t work well at Walmart to load Bluebird/Serve. They do work fine at Target for REDbird.
- These can be purchased with normal Visa, Mastercard and American Express credit cards, but Amex gift cards will not work.
Who Is This Good For
This is another option for those who like to be REWARDED for sitting at home and ordering gift cards in their PJs. There are cards that can be purchased for $3.95 at malls and credit unions, but those options aren’t available to everyone. I suspect some people will like the simplicity of purchasing these cards.
With the near death of GiftCardMall (that option still lives through a backdoor link) I know some of you have been looking for alternative ways to easily meet minimum spend requirements. This isn’t the perfect way, but this new discount code brings it within the realm of making sense.
