[Expired] Giftcards.com: $3 off Visa Gift Cards (HELLOWINTER18)

Deal has expired, view more Giftcards.com deals by clicking here.

The Offer

  • Giftcards.com is offering $3 off Visa gift cards when you use promo code HELLOWINTER18.

The Fine Print

  • Valid 12/21/18 – 12/24/18
  • While supplies last
  • This promotion can not be combined with any other discounts or offers and excludes GiftCards.com for Business cards
  • Limit 5 cards per code

Our Verdict

$500 denomination has fees of $6.95, will be just $3.95 after this coupon discount. Using a coupon may invalidate the portal cash back, so there is a trade-off there. Keep in mind, you are typically limited to earning portal rewards on $60k in giftcards.com purchases per month.

whose fault is that 🙂 ?
there’s way too many nice CCs outside of amex.

Amex cards earn MR from gc.com… Just don’t MSR there.

But don’t do this promo either, since portals are better…

Would these earn 5x on chase ink?

Why would they? Is GC.com a bonus category for your Ink? It isn’t for mine or anyone else’s….

On my last statement, I saw that I earned 3x on my Ink Preferred for giftcards.com. I’m not sure which category it was under- shipping/advertisements or utilities- but I’d be interested in knowing since if it’s utilities I’d do even better on the Ink Plus for 5x… but I suspect it is coding as shipping or advertising and 3x is the best there is. But that’s still pretty good.

This promo, on the other hand, is not, since it invalidates the portal cashback. Are there any DPs out there if getting the portal cashback even when using a promo code?

is this the place that lets you add your name to your cards or is that GCM? VISA or MC or both?

i ordered before @ GC, it let you add your name like GCM, make sure do not add the special greeting card, cost 1.50 extra each, choose normal standard free greeting card if you like, i tested one time with a $3 discount code and no portal payout later, so it cost me more at GC than GCM regardless discount code or not, so i always order through GCM, hope GCM issues special 3% off later?? like last year

These orders were ineligible a couple months with the last coupon code to earn cb from portals. At least yz and tcb.
