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

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

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.
