Everyone should be able to figure the details out on their own if they actually put in 30 seconds of effort when they are out at grocery stores, gas stations, drug stores, etc.
Yeah, like that's going to work. I can assure you that the bloggers will now be competing on "the next best thing to reload cards" for BB.

Can't wait to see pictures of Emily in front of empty Vanilla racks at every OD within 20 miles.

If everyone took my lead this deal would still be working. Learn from your mistakes.

Thought I'd share. In case you didn't know, it's all our fault. And it's all going to be okay, this is no big deal:

I'm sure this thread helped to publicize the deal, but show me where people in this thread posted pictures of the card with bright arrows on what to buy. Show me where on the Google results page this thread shows up. This thread was a small reason why it died.

It may still be OK, but OK is a LOOOOONG way from being amazing, which is what this 2 week deal was.

Just got back from my local OD - no reload cards and no temporary AmEx PrePaid cards on the rack. Very depressing, but at least your video cheered me up. Just hilarious.

Do you have any idea how long this has been working? Let me answer that for you, no.
