  1. I was in BBB today, and the $200s had a $6.95 fee.

  2. Gift card mall cancelled my order on a purchase 7 gift cards.

  3. Can I use Beth Bath and Beyond Gift card to get the visa gift card ?

  4. @Paul – Thanks for sharing your findings!

    @lkdoan – Uh oh! Any idea why?

    @Sebastina – I don’t believe so.

  5. Ditto – GCM cancelled my order and has blocked my login.

  6. Same as Ikdoan. Got cancel like in 5 mins after I placed the order. Is that because I checked out as guest instead of a login member? Here is the email I got:

    Hello xx:

    Unfortunately, after reviewing your order, we felt it was best to cancel it and refund the purchase price in full.

    At CardLab, new and repeat orders are subject to risk and compliance reviews. The policies and procedures we use to review an account are proprietary and cannot be disclosed. The policies are in place to comply with federal regulations, and to protect cardholders and our company from potential fraudulent activity. Even though a review may result in the cancellation of an order, this does not necessarily indicate that you or order are fraudulent. The anonymous nature of an online transaction requires us to be cautious when choosing which orders to accept.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences this may have caused.

    Thank you for using GiftCardLab!

  7. We only bought 2 gift cards and got an email saying to call them asap. Had to answer a whole bunch of questions. My husband bought them in my name, shipped to our address. They wanted to know why he had them shipped to his own address.. Sheesh!! I wanted to buy more, but not sure I will bother now.

  8. How exactly do you include the UPC for the BBB rebate?
    “Send original UPC(s) from each product package. “

  9. The Visa GC’s at my BBB were issued by Sunrise Bank. Is there any issue loading those to Serve or BB?

  10. I got an email today saying that my order of 7 had been canceled and apparently I’m blacklisted from giftcardmall now. No explanation whatsoever was given. The CSR was a tool and of absolutely no help so I escalated the issue and hope to hear back from them why this happened.

  11. PUMPKINSPICE is defunct but Sugar&Spice works in exactly the same way through 11/25.

  12. GiftCards.com has a promo code for free shipping, BLACKFRIDAY is the code, and you can get $500 cards again.
