Max of 10 GC can be used on one purchase online.
You can always try to have them combined to one in the store but YMMV.

In store, the max is 15 per purchase (hard coded).

Any one had trade with Nikkapeta?  I am still waiting for the payments from Dec 2016 sales. Should I dispute with Best Buy since I still have my gift card handy? Any advise would be appreciated.

You had a sale go sour w another member of DDF and you want to know if you should dispute your charge with Bestbuy? What did Bestbuy do wrong that you are looking to dispute?

Yes, I sent him the GCs before he paid me.  I had two trades with him.  The first one went well  and I emailed him a few codes for the second trades.  A few days later i received an email from Venmo about the my newly opened Venmo account has been frozen,  and asked me to contact the sender for the unsuccessful transaction.  My cash balance from the first trade was 0 on Venmo account.  My first payment was zero out and never receive my second payment.   Venmo terminated the service, after reviewing your inquiries and account, we have found that your actions and activity have been in violation of this agreement.

Yes, unfortunately Venmo is not a safe platform for accepting payments for goods. I would advise anyone looking to conduct a sale via Venmo to only do so with someone you are familiar with and can trust.

This story is unfortunately not an isolated incident w regards to Venmo. See this article.

If I didn't know better I would think this is a practical joke. You're about to get yourself into a lot of debt right there, liquidating BB GC's through buying groups is not so easy, especially if you're just starting out.

you are right, but if the buying group is offering 1000 dollars for bringing them 325 different phones that average out at 45 dollars per phone and you are able to buy best buy gc at 88 percent and you have best buy rewards not to mention his thousand dollars that's around 6 thousand 10 percent return very tempting even though its risky.

Why do you think you'll be able to actually get that many phones? Also, there's no way you'll get BB GC's for 88%. If you want a risky way to lose a lot of money I can refer you to a forex company, they'll gladly take your money without you having to leave your house.

I don't think this is belongs here,
But,
If it would be so easy to spend 45k on phones,
They wouldn't pay you
