Default Simon.com website currently not working? Simon site down?

I tried to buy a simon giftcard using my mothers' credit card since my cards don't work. she lives in midwest and i live in puerto rico.

yesterday and today i get the message (after putting in password for visa verified):

The Simon Giftcard site is currently unavailable.
We're sorry. An error occurred while processing that request. Please
select the return button below and try again.

[return]

i try again - same message

ip issue or just simon not working on weekends?

Don't you hate when things seem to be offline, or people are upgrading just when you want to use their service? I tried checking some credit card statements and pay bills last night, but 3 out of the 5 sites I checked were updating... What a bitch...

Same here, I got the same exact message, so I called their number. The guy who answered (in India surprisingly ) told me he tried to do it himself while I waited on the phone and told me he was having the same issue, that I should check back tomorrow [tuesday 26th of june] I REALLY don't think its an IP issue. Was all the info you typed in correct???

This has been going on for at least a month. Since then, I just started going to my local Simon mall to get mine. The India call center was of no use nor did I get a response from Simon's customer service via email.

Default E-mail delivery option gone??

Hmm. Odd...the "e-mail delivery" option in the drop-down menu is not available anymore on Simon.com.

Also, I went to Walgreens to get a Visa pre-paid debit card. And at sign-up, eBay took it no-problem. 2 days lated my new (created to the 't' following instructions on the forum [except my card was from Walgreens]) account got suspended for: "Your eBay account has been suspended. eBay took this action after determining that your account was acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. "

What is happening!!!!????

Sometimes it happens. EBay is odd like that. Just try again, it wasn't your CC.

Default Response form eBay

"I have reviewed your account and determined that you were suspended
under the "Abusing eBay" section of the eBay User Agreement. This
section states that eBay may immediately warn, temporarily suspend,
indefinitely suspend, or terminate your membership if we believe that
your actions may cause financial loss or legal liability to you, our
users, or us. Although I cannot provide further details , you can review

the eBay User Agreement at the following Web page:

Your User Agreement

To be considered for reinstatement, you must submit all of the
following:"

and so on...they want a bank statement or util. bill and drivers license

I can't believe they don't even give you a reason...I am wondering, and not joking, maybe someone hijacked my acct??

Possible reasons for them to flag me:

1-hijacked account
2-they somehow found it it was a Visa gift card (Unlikely IMHO)
3-I signed up for a sellers account rigth away without buying anything and put a ___________ on sale (no logic here)
4-they figured I was masking my IP
5- bank account was bogus (though routing was REAL)

any thoughts?

Default same problem

I've had the same problem the last few days. I just got a virtual one from epassporte instead. I thought maybe the problem was that i didn't have a verified by visa credit card. My card worked with epassporte though.

Default Simon.com website currently not working? Simon site down?

I keep getting "The Simon Giftcard site is currently unavailable." when trying to purchase a giftcard. This has happened the last 2 days in a row. Anyone else having problems?

Simon is Very Good, if you are in a Planning stage, and have some time, they normally take anywhere from several hours to 1-2 days on a weekend to deliver that email with the link for the gift card to your receipient.]
--OTHERWISE, if you are in a Hurry, go to the local 7-11, Grocery Store, or local Pharmacy... check Aspkins Guide for the complete list.

I click order now and the page never fully loads.
