Cashback portal Extrabux recently updated their policy on GiftCardMall purchases. Previously, Visa gift card purchases (minus the purchase fee) qualified for 1% cash back, which was much higher than the 0.5% offered by TopCashBack. However, this has changed and Visa gift cards purchased through GiftCardMall are no longer eligible for cash back. This is too bad, since that 1% really helped offset some of the fees and shipping costs involved in manufactured spending with Visa gift cards.
You can still get 0.5% through TopCashBack, or use my favorite method: Buy American Express gift cards through a shopping portal for 3% cash back, then use the Amex gift cards to buy Visa gift cards at a grocery store, and unload those via Bluebird or money orders.
