Update: GiftCards.com has sent out an email today advising that promo code TREATS should work too.
GiftCards.com offered 10% off virtual Visa gift cards a few months ago for the 4th of July and they’re doing the same thing again for Halloween.
- Save 10% on virtual Visa gift cards bought from GiftCards.com when using promo codes TRICKORTREAT or TREATS
- Direct link to offer.
- Expires October 31, 2021.
- Limit 3 VISA Virtual Gift Accounts from GiftCards.com while supplies last
- Maximum value $75.
- Excludes GiftCards.com for Business orders.
The maximum load on virtual Visa gift cards from GiftCards.com is $250. With a limit of $75 in discounted cards, that means you can buy three $250 cards to get $75 off. Virtual Visa gift cards have a $5.95 purchase fee, so your net profit will be $57.15 while also racking up $692.85 of profitable spend – particularly helpful if you’re trying to meet the minimum spend requirement on a non-Amex card.
Note that the promo code is only valid on virtual Visa gift cards – not physical cards. It’s therefore worth having in mind a plan to actually redeem them, but with the holidays coming up it shouldn’t be too hard to find a way to redeem them for online shopping.
In even better news, the Alaska Airlines shopping portal is offering 4x on GiftCards.com purchases today, so that’ll earn you 2,700+ Mileage Plan miles (I forget if the purchase fee tracks too). Most shopping portals only offer 1x or 1% for Visa gift card purchases from GiftCards.com, although rates are higher today on a few other portals:
You can check out rates on Cashback Monitor, but be aware that the higher headline rates on a lot of portals are only available on purchases of Happy gift cards, not these virtual Visa gift cards.
When GiftCards.com ran this promo a few months ago, it seemed to sell out within a day or so, although they did subsequently relaunch the offer with a different promo code. I’ve no idea if the same thing will happen with this latest deal, but I wouldn’t wait until October 31 to place an order just in case it ends far earlier.
