Giftcards.com: Multiple Promo Codes to Save 5% on Virtual Visa Gift Cards

20

Update 11/28: There’s now a total of seven promo codes giving a 5% discount on these virtual Visa gift cards. All seem to be working on Cyber Monday.

Update 11/25: There are now three codes that are giving 5% off on Virtual Visa Cards at  GCC. Each one of them is supposed to be valid for a unique time period, but it looks like all of them are currently working as of 11/25.

Giftcards.com recently ran a profitable deal on Mastercard gift cards. They’re now back with a deal that seems to be inadvertently profitable on Visa gift cards, so buy ASAP if you’re interested as they could fix the deal at any time.

Quick Thoughts

Giftcards.com appears to have set up this promotion with the same level of competency that the Wyndham Rewards shopping portal is able to multiply any given number by three.

The great thing is that this competency (or lack of it) is working in our favor. The terms state that you’ll save 5% on virtual Visa gift cards loaded with up to $100, with $5 being the maximum discount. That’s not currently happening though.

Instead, they’re giving 5% off on all virtual Visa gift cards no matter the amount loaded to the card. That means that if you load the maximum amount – $250 – you’ll be charged $243.45. The way that math works is that the 5% discount isn’t applied against the purchase fee, so you get 5% off $250 ($237.50) with the $5.95 added on after for the total of $243.45. Still, that’s a $6.55 profit for every gift card you buy which doesn’t take into account any shopping portal earnings and credit card rewards.

On the shopping portal front, there’s no guarantee that you’ll earn cashback/miles/points due to the use of the BFVIP promo code. It’s obviously worth clicking through from a shopping portal though in case your purchase(s) tracks. You can find the current portal rates here; don’t forget to check Capital One Shopping both online and in their app as there are sometimes targeted increased rates for Giftcards.com purchases.

The terms of this promotion clearly suggest that saving 5% on any value of virtual Visa gift cards isn’t what they intended. If you’re interested in this deal, it’d therefore be best to buy these cards ASAP as it could get fixed at any time.

Not about the discount (which seems to be maximum of $75), what is the limit for buying the Visa Virtual Card per day, per month, per year from GiftCards.com?

confirming that the code is still working and i stacked with capital one shopping portal.

TravelPhD

Still working (5% off) and tracking on AA shopping portal (3x). A great way to play the Loyalty Points game!

Shay

add code FRIYAY – this works too!

A B

On the AA portal now.

Jonathan

BFVIP is still working on 11/25.

[…] Code BFVIP on Giftcards.com: Appears to stack through the Capital One Portal at 3% back. Purchased $750 of cards for $730.35. Deal appears unintentional so move fast. […]

Worked for me too, and the code was on the Capital One Shopping app which was offering 4% so I expect it to stack.

luckystan777

Still working. just ordered.5% of entire order

Justmeha

Of you load $249 instead of $250 the fee will be a dollar less

Brian C

I’m not seeing a reduced fee when entering $249

Chaser123

Odd – I got $75 off on 7 * $250.
Still profitable but I was expecting $87.50 discount

S D

In for $2k, helping me toward SW CP before the end of the year. Now to find several more thousands!

Any secrets to not getting auto cancelled?

Frustrated

This auto cancel is a nightmare…

I’d guess that if one used the coupon code for the 5 percent that one might lose the 3X points on AA eShopping or Capital One Shopping (or any other platform). So, there’s a choice to be made.

I have noticed AA portal has been MORE detailed around the loyalty points and the CODES that are available. I was in 2 months of back and forth on the ENDOFSUMMER code. Same as Stephen, I had screen captures SHOWING that the code was valid but it still took 2 months to be credited. I would be hesitant to use a code that is not on the AA portal as I work toward Executive Platinum… my 2 cents.

My order tracked with AA. Whether I get the miles or not remains to be seen — however I did receive miles for the Veterans Day promo.
