I've been buying a couple of cards in the past few weeks when it's been 25%-26 percent to save on back to school shopping in a few months...happened to check today and the cards are 28% off. Hope this helps someone!

The discount is definitely good. Make sure to order ahead of time because receiving the plastic gift card from the mail takes some time.

I ordered with them and they did not send me a Plastic Gift card. Instead I got a eGiftcard (paper) by snail mail. It can still be used at the store but I am disappointed as I tend to lose printouts very easily. And at JCPenney, we cannot buy Gift cards with Gift cards.

I have bought from cardpool before. Read reviews before you make a purchase with them - they are very slow and lack of responses.

When they feel like contacting you, they call your number, and ask you to verify address over the phone, before they will ship it out.

Google cardpool scam, and there are ALOT of complains.

i bought 8000 dollars worth of home depot cards (for house renovation) with them before, they do not reply emails, and their phone number is a automatic machine. No cards, no calls.

I then found the direct cell number of the owner, and he said someone will get back to me, and which they did on the same day. But that was already 2 weeks after I paid 8000 bucks.

I've purchased 2-3 thousand in gift cards from them and they have always been prompt. I have ordered e-gift cards from them as well and they even called to make sure my card wasnt stolen and being used by someone else. They may be difficult to reach, but Ive had nothing but good luck with them.

I purchased around $5000 in various gift cards from them and no problem at all.

Giftcardrescue.com has been 27% since at least April. Very reliable, comes as a plastic card and comes quickly.

KPLovesDeals 06-08-2012 12:45 PM

I have used Giftcardrescue.com in past with no issues and very pleased with their service

BBB rating or not, They have scammed alot of people out of GC's/Money. Most of it was Receiving issues stating it never arrived, Seems to be only one complaint from purchasing the GC's, (seems they haven't figured out how to scam the buyer as well yet, Just the seller)

They use the exact same site template that PlasticJungle.com previously used. Plastic Jungle now uses the same style as ABCgiftcards.com only using the plastic jungle colors. ABC hasn't changed.

I've successfully ordered from Plastic Jungle a few times, but I'm never comfortable when one seems like a scam and the rest seem to share design data if not more. It's all a bit weird.

I have ordered several gift cards from cardpool.com and have never had an issue. I usually have the card in my hand within a few days of placing the order.
