Ok, enough spilled milk convo's. I'm redirecting focus like a bulls eye to alternative plan(s).

If the VR deal dies, I will go back to what I was doing before and just buy the Amex Temp loadable cards. I just hate having to register them for online usage. That's how I was doing this whole game before the reloads. $1.00 more in the fee, but worth it for the UR points.

Depends if your store is still carrying those or not. My store had those removed as well, but apparently some stores are out of the reloads but still carrying the temp cards.

So there is no limit on how many of those you can register?

How are you still able to type? You would have started when I posted around 9:30AM EST and haven't had much of a break since .

Two questions:

1. Can you still buy at Walgreens/CVS?

2. Will I get x6 points on the Hilton AMEX with Pharmacy spend?

This tread and the bloggers is what did it. Some will just never learn.

Think of who is to blame and which evil bloggers posted their pictures right in Office Depot holding the cards. They stole the money right from your pocket. They ruined a lot of peoples lives and their increased awareness of the deal is what killed it.

I'm all in

Am at od checkout right now. I threw caution to the wind and am trying to buy another $5000.

Manager is on the phone verifying my charge but not sure who he called. He.said they'd had a lot of problems last 3 weeks.

I have the feeling they're not going to let me purchase.

Od manager let it through after his call, then the when the csr rang it up, register said "call for authorization". Ha ha, this is funny. Now I'm definitely on chase radar.
