Here’s a terrific way to meet credit card minimum spending requirements for very little cost!

Via Reddit, you can once again get free shipping on PIN-enabled Visa gift cards from Giftcards.com.  Use promotion code “FREEUSPS915” at checkout.

Combined with Giftcards.com’s rewards program, this free shipping deal means you can buy gift cards and basically get the fee refunded!

No Need to Hike to the Office Supply Store, Supermarket, or Drugstore! You Can Get Free Shipping From Giftcards.com

And I’ve found new information showing you may be able to load these cards to AMEX Bluebird and Serve accounts.

What’s the Deal?

Link:   Giftcards.com

Link:   Giftcards.com Rewards Program

Link:   Meet Minimum Spending Requirements for Almost Free at Giftcards.com

When you use promotion code “FREEUSPS915” at checkout, you’ll get free shipping from Giftcards.com!

You can buy PIN-enabled Visa gift cards in denominations up to $500.  Each card has a ~$5 purchase fee.

But Giftcards.com has a rewards program.  You’ll earn 1 point per $1 you spend.  And those points are worth 1 cent each towards a future purchase.

You’ll Pay the ~$5 Fee Once on a $500 Gift Card – but the Points You’ll Earn Can Be Used Towards Future Purchases to Negate the Gift Card Fee

So on a $505 gift card purchase ($500 + ~$5 purchase fee), you’ll earn 505 points.  That’s worth $5.05 off your next purchase, essentially wiping out the gift card fee!

In the past, free shipping promotion codes have only worked for a limited time.  I’m not sure how long this will last!

What Can You Do With These Gift Cards?

I wrote previously that Visa gift cards sold by Giftcards.com would only work to load AMEX Target REDCard prepaid accounts, and NOT Serve or Bluebird.

That may not be the case!  Folks on Reddit recently reported success adding funds to Bluebird and Serve at Walmart with these cards.

Loading Visa Gift Cards to AMEX Prepaid Accounts Lets You Pay Bills You Can’t Normally Pay With a Credit Card

That said, I have NOT tried this myself.  It might be a good idea to make a small denomination gift card test purchase to see if it works in your local Walmart.

Once you load these cards to your AMEX prepaid account, you can use the funds to pay bills you can’t otherwise pay with a credit card, like rent, loans, and utilities.  You can also withdraw money to your bank account.

I explain how to do that here.

Bottom Line

You can get free shipping on Visa gift cards when you use promotion code “FREEUSPS915” at Giftcards.com.

And you’ll earn points through their rewards program which (after your 1st purchase) essentially negate the gift card fee on later transactions.

Plus, folks now report you can load these cards to AMEX Bluebird and Serve prepaid accounts (and not just Target REDcard as previously thought).  That’s great news for folks who want to easily meet minimum spending requirements!

Please let me know in the comments if you’ve successfully loaded these cards to Bluebird and Serve at Walmart!

Free shipping code BLACKFRIDAY works and you can get $500 cards again and rewards.

As of now the free shipping code doesn’t work. Also, the price per $500 VGC has been increased to $6.95. So, if you buy $2,465 worth of VGCs the cost comes out to $17.43 after rewards. So, this creates a dent in the profit margin. Still a good way to MS. Not free anymore like the post suggests. Maybe the post needs to be revised in light of recent changes?

Cards work to load serve no problem!!!

Akshay, see 2nd paragraph for free shipping code. I believe it is valid all of September.

Card worked for me for MO purchase at grocery store.

Any FREE shipping code is available?
