Accounts getting flagged for using too many gift cards?

I read about this somewhere on BT and it slightly concerns me. I just cashed out my reward points for 4 X $100 Sephora gift cards ($400 total). Hope that's not considered excessive! :smileyhappy:

 

BTW, use a credit union. It pays off!

I just wish Sephora would give permission for a mod to post to clear up the rumors.  I know they can't comment on an individual account, but they COULD say 'the following items are the types of things that get accounts flagged: X, Y, Z.  The following things will not get an account flagged: A, B, C.'  It would clear up a lot of confusion.

I heard that some people were buying discounted gift cards off eBay or something similar? Not sure, but it sounded like the gift cads might not have been acquired honestly.

Yes, buying in store credit (white) gift cards off ebay is asking for trouble. There are other gc sites where you can buy regular sephora gift cards, usually at 5 or 6% off face value, these are sold by sephora as bulk purchases at a discount, therefore legit.
