Chase Gift Cards:
GAME OVER

We’re sorry, but we no longer offer Chase Gift Cards.

We will continue to honor current Chase Gift Cards. If you have a Chase Gift Card, you may continue to use it until the funds are depleted or upon card expiration.
If your existing Chase Gift Card has been damaged, lost or stolen, you can redeem the balance or get a replacement Card by calling us at
1-866-466-0079, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Use that number if you have questions about your existing Chase Gift Card.



www.chasewebgiftpurchase.com/index.cfm - [No longer working]

https://www.chase.com/online/Checking/gift-card.htm/ [No longer working as of 9/20/13]

$500 max value per card

Can be used as debit
Call # on card to set pin

There are some limitations to using gift cards as opposed to debit cards, but these are functioning very well as debit cards. So please follow the number one rule of manufactured spend: DON"T CALL THE BANKS.

Chase Gift Cards [Ending: 9.22.2013]

Don't know if this has been posted before, but Chase is offering gift cards available for up to $500 and payable by credit card. There's a $4.95 fee for buying online, and a $3.50 fee per card if bought at a branch. At a branch, you can buy bulk order as well, up to 500 cards. If you have a premier checking account, you get the cards at no fee.

Seems like a good alternative to Vanilla and AmEx Prepaid. Is this another branch to The Mint?

Registering as a purchase or as a cash advance?

Interesting.

Now, which credit cards pay 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x points for purchases at banks?

Unless you discovered a way to cash out for free, then no. Not another Mint.

Handy, yes, but really no better or worse than buying anyplace else as you still end up with a handful of gift cards to deal with.

Eh...as long as you are getting a cash back with Amex, not sure why this would be helpful...especially if you end up paying the fee. Just go to OD and buy the same ones and get 5x.

From the T&C -

"You agree not to use the Card at any automatic teller machines (ATMs), at merchants or financial institutions to obtain cash back, to transfer funds by wire, or to initiate Internet gambling or any illegal transactions."

Actually these might be quite bueno. Think creatively....

The link above shows that this is a VISA debit card. So think about what other things you might be able to use a debit card for that might be beneficial.

FYI

6. Is the card a credit card?
No, but since there is no PIN with the card, select "credit" rather than the "debit" or "ATM" if you are prompted by a merchant's terminal.
