The Fine Print

  • Valid on 5% back cards only

Our Verdict

Generally when they run these offers it’s not available at all their locations so YMMV.

The Five Back Visa gift cards earn 5% back at select retailers. They should function as ordinary Visa gift cards and can be used anywhere Visa is accepted. Keep in mind that other options such as Dining  might not function as ordinary Visa gift cards, and might only be usable at select locations. For example, the Dining card might only work at restaurants. I think it’s just the standard five back cards that Simon are selling as part of this promotion.

Generally no category bonuses on these purchases, so mostly useful for meeting minimum spend requirements or just racking up some base spend (best cards for every day purchases can be found here).

How do online Simon Mall 5% Back Gift Cards code? It looks like it goes through Gift Card Mall? I assume it won’t code as a department store for visa. Anyone with any data points?

It takes at least 48 hours for the 5% cash backs to post on the card. In some cases, I have had to call them to get them to deposit the 5% by opening a case.

I purchased a few of the Simon Mall gift cards today in only one transaction. I looked on my credit card and I see two entries on my CC. (1) The full charge of the GCs including fees (2) another entry from Simon Mall for $1.00. Does anyone know what this charge is and how to get rid of it as this is a good clue for the CC companies that this is a MS spending.

Anyone else have trouble using the last 4 digits as PIN? I tried two different cards and both were declined with the last 4 digits. I then called the 800 number and set up my own PIN and then it worked no problem.

Any data points on how long the 5% rebate takes to post once the card has been used at CVS? Thanks!

I was at CVS last night (Saturday night) and their DL scanning system was down, so they couldn’t sell VGC. Anyone else experience same?

Hey do you know how long does it take for the 5% credit to post on the card ? Does the card need to be used as a credit transaction for credit to post ?

It might be too late for DP, but I have successfully purchased them at Camarillo Premium Outlet in CA.

I’ve been going to the CVS everyday since the no fee promo started.

Today I got a message about alternate payment. I tried debit split payment and debit was denied because it needed the full amount or it needed to be the last transaction.

I checked the balance on the card and it was good. I should’ve tried my 2 otther FBs…

Is it game over at CVS for Simon FBs?

I sure hope not until at least the no fee promo!

I unloaded 1hr after and it worked. 1st time I saw the alternate payment, so I was a bit worried.
