Update 6/3/22: Giftcards.com has added three additional codes to the plethora of Memorial Day codes that they had already released: 5OFFVISA, MMDVISA and DONUTDAY. There is also a 1.5% Citi offer that’s on some cards that stacks with the DONUTDAY code (in case fighting with the AA portal isn’t your thing). You can see the full list of cashback options here. Remember that, even if you did this deal in May, you can use a different code and get another $2000 in AA portal earnings again in June. (h/t GC Galore)
Update 5/29/22: This Giftcards.com eVisa gift card promotion is much better. It’s been extended through June 6 and the limits have been increased to $1,500 of purchases compared to the original limit of only $200 (so, the maximum discount is now $75, instead of $10). The extended expiration date is extremely because most shopping portals limit earnings from Giftcards.com to $2,000 per month. Now you can earn cashback/points/miles on up to $2,000 of purchases in May and then another $2,000 of purchases once it’s June. (h/t GC Galore)
GiftCards.com sent out an email advertising an early Memorial Day promotion for 5% off on Virtual Visa Gift Cards with promo codes MEMORIALDAYVISA, MEMORIALDAY, 5OFFVISA, MMDVISA, DONUTDAY & MMDVISA5. Unfortunately, unlike past sales, this time around the maximum discount is $75
$10. That means you’ll only be able to get a single $250 Virtual Visa Gift Card at a profit, though for those chasing American Airlines elite status, the chance to pick up ~738 miles / Loyalty Points and a ~$4 profit might be worth a few clicks if this tracks. I put that last sentence in bold because the MEMORIALDAY promo is not yet listed on the American Airlines portal. It might make sense to hold off on this promo.

GiftCards.com periodically runs these virtual Visa Gift Card promos, but in the past we’ve seen larger discounts with higher maximums. I often use these virtual visas to prepay insurance bills and lock in a small savings.
However, this time around, I’m going to hold off. First of all, I’m not terribly enticed by the $4 profit.
That said, I’d ordinarily take 738 negative-cost Loyalty Points (times two since I’d have my wife do the deal also). Unfortunately though, the promo code is not listed on the AA shopping portal, so there is a decent chance that it won’t track. The email from GiftCards.com indicates that this deal is being sent to email subscribers for early access, so I’m thinking there is a chance that this deal will hit the shopping portals later in the week. Sometimes there is an alternate code that shows up on the portals with the same discount. Since this one is scheduled to last until
May 30th June 6th and the $4 profit isn’t so hot as to draw people out of the woodwork, I’m going to wait and see if it shows up.
Given the low profit margin, I think most would pass on this one.
