Looks like BB is FDIC insured now, and annual limit is 100K a year although the 5K/mo VR limit still applies.
This is perfect! I just did my taxes yesterday and have a few thousand in taxes and estimated taxes coming up. I will not pay the fee for using a credit card and don't have a miles-earning debit card, and I didn't like the idea of having BB send my payment separate from the tax return itself. BB checks are exactly what I need. I just ordered 100 - hope they're here before April 15! Now I need to hunt for more VR...my local source is out right now. At least earning miles will make paying those taxes (slightly) more bearable.
