well i just bought a WF prepaid card with my BOA card, went through as a purchase but NO POINTS! The system knows its a cash equivalent and gave NO POINTS! OMG never thought BOA would be this smart. Cancelling my order now....locking my cash up for a month for nothing

I was able to load 2000 and will have the chance to load one last load of 2500 on 30th.

I think this has been mentioned before. (pretty sure it was BOA).
At least you didn't get a CA fee for that little experiment.

This is fully covered up-thread, BOA will post it as purchase, but you will not get points/miles. Citi will CA this transaction. We are close to 5/1, you may as well move on to another deal.

Cheers,

Got my shutdown email today:
"We have closed your Wells Fargo Prepaid Card account. We have closed this account due to what we have determined to be inappropriate spending/purchasing activity intended to perpetrate fraudulent activity."

I do resent their "fraudulent activity" statement. I never attempted to defraud anyone and only used the card within the rules that they themselves set up
(which is mostly emptying it through WM Money orders.)

Unfortunately I was a relative latecomer to the WF party. I only got 9000 miles so I'm jealous of those who were milking it for many months. But better late than never, I guess. Unfortunately I hadn't made any additions yet in April since I was waiting until after my CC statement date so I'd have more time before I had to pay it back.

I thought they'd finally shut me down, when may cash-over transaction was declined at Wally World. Nope. I just forgot about the $500 per day ATM/cashback limit. I'd already hit the ATM today. Whew. One more scheduled load and I'll wring all my money out of WF. What a great run this has been.

Awe... All good things come to an end. Got my shutdown email. I must've hit the atm one too many times. I agree the fraudulent activity claim is a little overboard. Oh well was able to meet some difficult spend requirements thanks to this card. Until the next big thing... Its been a good run.

Wow. Used it for two weeks and just got shutdown. All well. The party was ending May 1st anyway so I was going pretty hard at getting my money out by then.

I wonder why are they shutting down? does not make sense because the end is so close.....

damn it looks like i got shutdown after withdrawing $1500 this month. Annoying because I was about to make minimum spend on Club Carlson CC with it. I had a bunch of purchases too, only reloaded at wal-mart once.

Shut down here too. It sure looks like the writing is on the wall for all of us at this point.

BOA is not smart, just evil. For magic card tricks try Chase.

Just drained my last load down to $2.04. At this point, I'm kind of hoping they shut me down. Might save me some trouble. ;0)
