[Expired] Giftcards.com: $3 Off Mastercard Giftcards With Promo Code SWEETEST/SWEETHEART (10/22-10/26)

Expired, click here for more giftcards.com deals.

Deal is now live, keep in mind it looks like no portals have these promo codes listed. Still worth a try, also remember airline portals are now an option as well (but again promo codes aren’t listed so probably won’t work).

The Offer

Direct link to offer (not yet live)

  • Giftcards.com is offering $3 off Mastercard giftcards when you use promo code SWEETEST (fine print says SWEETHEART so not sure the correct one).

The Fine Print

  • Promo code “SWEETHEART” is valid on 10/22/2018 – 10/26/2018 on Mastercard Gift Cards and Mastercard Virtual Accounts while supplies last from GiftCards.com only.
  • SWEETHEART promotion can not be combined with other promotions, is a one-time use promo code and supplies are limited.

Our Verdict

$500 denomination normally costs $6.95, would be $3.95 with this coupon. Now using a coupon usually invalidates the portal cash back, unless the portal specifically lists that promo code. I guess we will need to wait until the 22nd to find out if any portals have it listed or not. Keep in mind portals have limits as wellStaples has $5 off $200 Mastercard gift cards tomorrow, that might be a better option for people with cards that earn at a high rate on office supply stores.

I tried it. Only taking $3 off on an order of 4 cards. No good.

Can you use the code multiple times in multiple orders?

Not sure what that would accomplish, it’s a straight $7.45 shipping fee for 5 cards with tracking. Doing multiple orders would cost more in shipping, negating any spread.

It’s also not the 22nd yet?

What are the benefits of these cards besides getting your cc points?

What’s the benefit of money other than being able to buy stuff?

Some cards will give you 3x points for purchases on GC.com. So if you get $2500 in GCs and purchase through a 1% cashback portal, your net cost will be $17 for 7500 points. As long as you have a method for liquidating the $500 VGCs, this is a legit way for racking up some points. Of course, this is also a way to meet min spends on all bank cards except AMEX.

Which cards still give 3x here…?

ok, “reconscott,” I slogged back through greg’s lab and found your entry then:

Giftcards.com TopCashBack Buy 500 VGC using Chase Ink for 3X Chase UR Success 2017-08-23
Reported by ReconScott

Presume you meant the Chase Ink Business Preferred card? (explaining the 3%) Curious indeed. What was the qualifying category? Internet services? Travel? Still working? via tcb?

This would be quite a well kept chestnut if Ink treated giftcards.com as a bonus category. I’d be surprised this could be kept secret!

Hadn’t noticed this – good call. $499.62 net this way with MC through YZ, IF the portal works out.

Looks to me like this will be a bust. Not 22nd yet, but also seeing one $3 discount on the whole order with SWEETEST, NOT per card (in any quantities). Makes no sense to do multiple orders to get additional discounts due to $7.45 shipping fee (and potentially no portal pay out either).

Has anyone gotten cashback credit on this? I bought a card through the topcashback link yesterday using the SWEETEST code for $3 off, but I haven’t gotten any cashback credit yet. Without the 1% cashback, this offer is obviously “meh.”

I’ve got $0 instead of blanks fut amount and cashback on lemoney so I doubt it’ll work on any portals. You win some, you lose some

Thanks for the confirmation. Sad! Glad I only bought one card (I need to meet a minimum spend). I kind of thought it would work.
