The process can take about a week. You will then re-enter the verification process each time you add a new payment method to your account. Note that you should likely avoid using an Amex because Amex stopped awarding points for in-person Simon Mall purchases, so it is doubtful that Amex would award award points for Simon online purchases. See: Simon Visa Gift Card online bulk ordering. Everything you need to know .Max value : $1,000 Max order size : $25,000 per day whether in a single or multiple orders (inclusive of fees) Per card fee : $3.95 Order processing fee : $10 per order Shipping fee : Varies.

Staples.com Card notes: If you pay with a Chase Ink Cash (or the Ink Plus, which is no longer available to new applicants), the {matheq}8.95 fee is more than made up for by the 5X Ultimate Rewards points earned (5 X 308.95 = 1545 points per {endmatheq} 300 card). In fact, if you wanted to, you could cash in 895 of those points to reduce your net fees to zero and still earn 650 points per $300 card (i.e. ~2.2X). Note that the card activation PIN is mailed separately a few days behind your gift card order.Max value : $300 Max order size : $2,000 (inclusive of fees) Per card fee : $8.95 Can include your name on gift card?

Yes Portal rebate available? No PIN enabled? Yes Cash advance fee? No Issued by : TBBK Card Services, Inc., MetaBank, N.A. or Sutton Bank Credit card category bonus : None
Office Depot Card notes: Although in-store gift card purchases of Visa gift cards at Office Depot can earn you 5x on Ink Plus and Ink Cash cards, thats sadly not the case online. Thats because Office Depots online gift card offering is powered by GiftCardMall and payments are therefore processed by them rather than Office Depot. GiftCardMall reduced the maximum denomination for Visa gift cards to $250 in July 2020 on their own site, but $500 cards are still available on Office Depots site. The cards come with a $5.95 activation fee, but you can get free trackable shipping.Max value : $500 Max order size : $5,095.50 (inclusive of fees) Per card fee : $5.95 Can include your name on gift card?

No Portal rebate available? No PIN enabled? Yes (last 4 digits) Cash advance fee? No Issued by : Metabank Credit card category bonus : Groceries
Kroger Card notes: While the activation fee of $5.95 is very high given the cards low denomination, earning 4x fuel points when Kroger runs that promotion can potentially save you more than that fee when buying gas. Unlike gift card purchases from Giant Eagle, online gift card purchases from Kroger dont code as groceries. Thats because, similar to Office Depot, their online gift card offering is run by GiftCardMall.Max value : $100 Max order size : $1,064.50 (inclusive of fees) Per card fee : $5.95 Can include your name on gift card? No Portal rebate available? No PIN enabled? Yes Cash advance fee? No Issued by : U.S. Bank Credit card category bonus : None
Sams Club Card notes: The $6.48 activation fee and the fact that its a Vanilla card means buying Visa gift cards from Sams Club isnt too enticing. However, there are often Amex Offers for Sams Club which can make buying them more worthwhile (and profitable) if you wouldnt use the Amex Offer for organic Sams Club purchases.Max value : $200 Max order size : Seemingly no limits, but unlikely that Sams Club will fulfill a $10,324 order for 50 of these cards. Per card fee : $6.48 Can include your name on gift card? No Portal rebate available? No PIN enabled? Yes Cash advance fee? No Issued by : Varies Credit card category bonus : None
BJs Wholesale Club Card notes: The image of the $200 Vanilla Visa on the BJs website shows an activation fee of $6.95, but they actually only charge $5.45. Thats still a high fee, but might be worth it if youre looking to max out wholesale club spending when its a 5% category on cards like the Chase Freedom and Discover It.Max value : $200 Max order size : Seemingly no limits, but unlikely that BJs will fulfill a $10,272.50 order for 50 of these cards. Per card fee : $5.45 Can include your name on gift card? No Portal rebate available? Possibly. Gift card purchases from BJs sometimes track online even though theyre excluded. PIN enabled? Yes Cash advance fee? No Issued by : Varies Credit card category bonus : Wholesale clubs
Amazon (our affiliate link) Card notes: The highest denomination is $200 and those come with a $6.95 activation fee which is high as an overall percentage. It might make sense though if you have an Amazon credit card from Chase or Amazon which earns 5% on Amazon purchases.Max value : $200 Max order size : None listed. Per card fee : $6.95 Can include your name on gift card? No Portal rebate available? No PIN enabled? Yes Cash advance fee? No Issued by : MetaBank Credit card category bonus : Amazon
Incomm Incentives Card notes: Incomm Incentives appears to be set up to sell gift cards in bulk to businesses, so they might have some kind approval process to be accepted. They offer $500 cards for a $3.25 fee, so it might be worth considering if you have an eligible business. Note that these are Vanilla Visa gift cards, so these cant be used for debit transactions over $50 at Walmart.Max value : $500 Max order size : Seemingly none. This option is set up to buy in bulk (VanillaGift.com directs you to Incomm Incentives if trying to buy {matheq}10,000+ in Visa gift cards). Per card fee : {endmatheq} 3.25 Can include your name on gift card? Yes Portal rebate available? No PIN enabled? Yes Cash advance fee? No Issued by : Varies (Vanilla). Credit card category bonus : Unsure.
Target Card notes: A $6 fee means youre paying 3% when buying a $200 prepaid card. Target offers a 5% discount when buying gift cards with a RedCard, so that might be worth it if you actually get the 5% discount (I dont know if you do).Max value : $200 Max order size : $2,060 (inclusive of fees). Per card fee : $6.00 Can include your name on gift card? No Portal rebate available? No PIN enabled? Yes Cash advance fee? No Issued by : TBBK Card Services, Inc. or MetaBank Credit card category bonus : Unsure.
USPS Card notes: The highest denomination is $500 and comes with a $5.95 activation fee. The great thing is that they offer free trackable shipping, so the activation fee is the only cost added on. Stephen had problems trying to check out when logged in, so you might need to use the Checkout As Guest option.Max value : $500 Max order size : $5,000 (before fees) Per card fee : $5.95 with free trackable shipping. Can include your name on gift card? No Portal rebate available? No. Although its on a sub-domain of GiftCards.com, it doesnt seem to track after clicking through from a shopping portal. PIN enabled? Yes. After activating online you can choose a PIN. Cash advance fee? No Issued by : MetaBank Credit card category bonus : None that Im aware of

Avoiding Fraud

Amid the seemingly never - ending holiday craziness, gift cards can make for easy presents. But you better watch out: Cybercriminals have their eyes on them, too. The New York Police Department recently issued a warning after a major retailer said it discovered gift cards that had been tampered with at store in that city. If consumers had bought tampered cards, they would have lost money loaded onto them. The National Retail Federation estimates that more than half of Americans will buy gift cards this holiday season. According to TO Trade Group's 2019 survey of holiday shoppers, average consumer plans TO buy three or four gift cards this year and put an average of $47 on each of them. That amounts TO about $27. 5 billion in holiday Gift Card sales, NRF say. And that's enticing target for thieves, online and otherwise. These guys are professionals, says Richard Henderson, head of global threat intelligence for cybersecurity company Lastline. And, he add, they don't need every doctored Gift Card TO be activated in order to be successful. Even if they only get someone 1 or 2 percent of the time, they re still going TO make a lot of money, Henderson say.

Comparing Prepaid Card Offers

Here is why: While some other prepaid cards allow you to set aside money in a separate savings account, it be hard to find a card thatll rewards you more for doing so than the Mango prepay Mastercard. Its savings account offers an annual percentage yield, or APY, of up to 6% on balances as high as $2 500. Youll get 0. 10% APY on balances higher than that. To qualify for 6% APY, you need to make at least $1 500 in signature purchases each month and have a balance of at least $25 in your savings account at the end of the month. Signature purchases are transactions in which you use your PIN to authorize sale. You can also get a $10 referral bonus for every friend you refer to who enroll, activates their Account and receives recurring direct deposit. There is a $5 monthly fee, which the card issuer waives if you receive at least $800 in direct deposits each month. There is also a $3 fee for domestic ATM withdrawals, in addition to any fee an ATM operator might charge. Learn more about Mango Prepaid Mastercard in our editorial review.


The Best Prepaid Debit Cards of 2020

A prepaid debit card is a means of payment. As with traditional debit card, you can use prepaid card to make purchases online and in - person wherever card is accept. Prepay cards are typically issued on the same payment networks as regular debit and credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. The difference between prepaid debit cards and regular debit cards is that the former isnt tied to a checking account with a bank or credit union. Also, you can only use funds that youve loaded onto card. While some prepaid cards offer overdraft protection, that is not as universal as with traditional bank accounts. Prepaid debit cards are sometimes compared to secure credit cards, but the two are very different. With prepaid debit card, you simply use money you load onto your card. By contrast, secure credit card require that you make upfront deposit, which becomes your credit line. You can use that credit line, pay it off, and continue to use it over and over again. You never actually use deposit money, and you can get deposit back when you close account or potentially even sooner. Also, secure credit card can help you build credit, which wont happen with a debit card. Many prepaid debit cards allow you to create sub - accounts, so you can provide cards to other members of your family, all of which are tied to the same main account. However, many prepaid cards charge a variety of fees, including monthly fees, transaction fees, reload fees, ATM fees, and others. For that reason, it is important to shop around and compare several cards before you choose one.

How prepaid debit cards work

Prepaid cards work like debit cards. But you do not need a bank account to get a prepaid card. Here is how prepaid card works: you get a card from a store or company. Sometimes, you buy card in certain amount. You might pay $50. 00 for card. That means you can use that card to spend $50. 00. Sometimes, you buy a card and then add money to it. You can use card to buy things in stores. You can also get cash from an ATM. Your card stops working when you spend all the money you add. You can add more money. Unlike most debit cards, many prepaid cards charge very high fees.

Yet, when it comes to prepaid, debit and credit cards, it is important to note that these cards are not the same thing. While they all show network logos like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover, these three types of cards are actually quite different. With that say, these cards do have one thing in common: if youre not using cash, youre likely to use one of them to make your purchases.

Debit Card

Credit cards are different from both prepaid and debit cards due to the fact that when you use a credit card you are borrowing money while hopefully building a solid credit history. Better yet, many credit cards offer rewards in the form of points or cash back that can be redeemed for statement credits, travel, or merchandise. Some people like to use credit cards to purchase groceries, gas, and other everyday needs in order to rack up reward points. As long as you are not overspending and can pay your bill off in full each month, there is nothing wrong with using this strategy. However, if you struggle with controlling your spending, you may want to steer clear of using credit cards for your daily purchases.
