If only they had a competitive CC product. Then I could get interested in it.

No other transactions done on the day. Will try Stop and Shop tomorrow but just curious if anyone else was having issues?

Logged into my account and nothing out of the ordinary. Option to load still good. No pending transactions. Last transaction (other than the monthly maintenance fee) was an atm withdrawal 5 days ago.
You are allowed $1500 cashback in a rolling 7 day period - perhaps you had already hit your 7 day limit?

The other limit is a maximum $5,000 ATM withdrawal within a rolling 30-day period.

Just got the shutdown email yesterday after loading $2000 (refunded back to my card). My spend pattern has been almost no ATM withdraws (2 or 3 over three months), but a lot of unloading via Walmart on to BB and purchase+cash back from Walmart.

Also had small regular spends at our company cafeteria and Redbox.

If the GC+PIN thread is accurate, this card won't be missed outside of maybe slightly higher cpm.

Sounds like the WM purchases are triggering the shutdowns. I've only done one for $400 but mainly use this card for withdrawals of $200-$400 1-2x a week. So I'm paying more in fees as its $1 per withdrawal after my two free ones, so I guess they are making something.

I thought CB was coded as a regular purchase. Is this incorrect? I have never seen any difference in a purchase or one with CB on the transaction history.

No, in most cases, it counts against the $1500.
