You can receive 30 thank you letters per day with a maximum of seven gift cards. No more than that!

The cover of the catalogue shows how many gift cards you currently have.

There is a limit of 40 gift cards at a time. You cannot collect more gift cards once you have 40. To collect more, you need to spend them.
