i think groupon is based in chicago. THink groupon gift cards would work?

Even if you're right about where they're based, there's no chance Amex will consider them a small business...

I faxed hatbox.  He was very helpful.  Now just need to wait for him to process it and see that I get confirmation.  I also did the  fantes.com for Phl.

Any ideas for what to get at Fantes.com that is cheap? Do they have free shipping?

I ordered the$10 gift certificate.  Even though it says they charge shipping they really don't.  This way you can take all your gc's and buy something big.

How did you get free shipping? I placed the order and it went through charging $6 shipping...... (I'm canceling that order but I want to place 6 more orders with free shipping...)

See here http://www.fantes.com/gift-certificates.html#options
where it says
 Option 1 - By Mail:  No Charge
In the Comments box of the order form, write "Mail Certificate" if you want us to send the Gift Certificate via the U.S. Postal Service, regular mail (no insurance), at no charge. We will mail it upon receipt of your order.
Note: This option will automatically be chosen for you if you don't specify otherwise. The shipping charge noted in your order confirmation will be deleted when we process your order.
I haven't received mine yet but I am hoping it processes correctly.

BTW in the confirmation email they sent me they wrote that it could take a few days to process so don't waste time.

Just an FYI about Fantes:

1) It is confirmed that they do not charge shipping for the gift cards. (The charges are removed at the time of billing.)
2) They physically mail the certificates.
3) When you want to purchase something on their site later on you will need to physically mail back the certificate (and indicate in the comments box online when you check out that you intend to do so). Talking about archaic!!
4) They kind of freaked out when I submitted 40 gift certificate orders online and called me to let me know they do not feel comfortable with this. (They thought this is some scam or something...) They did not process any of the orders...
5) I'm pretty sure their store is listed at AMEX's website: http://shopsmallnow.com/. Use zip 19147.

Good luck!

I bought a few cards here: http://www.shop.hipsterhome.com/product.sc?productId=1339&categoryId=80

Spoke to the owner and he seems nice... Let's see if the credits come through.

By the way, was reading elsewhere (SD, I think) that it seems that cards registered for the deal via the AMEX website have not been getting those automatic congrats emails while those registered through FB and Twitter are getting those confirmation emails...

For the Hat Box, please confirm if you will be able to use it at any of these locations?
