Home improvement loadable card

Hi all,

I saw this loadable home improvement card at cvs and office depot that you can put up to $500 on with no fees and can be used at home depot and sears. I can figure out one backdoor with sears to get other gift cards anyone have any other backdoors on this? Thanks for the help you an pm me if you want.

They are loadable with a credit card (buy at OD with Chase Ink Plus and get 5x points). I used one today to buy Shell gas cards at Lowes.

I rather not piss off Chase Ink, and just buy Lands End gift card on UR website still get 5 points per dollar and still usable at Sears and yes you can buy lands end gift card at ur site for points. it's one of the few exclusions.

the best use I have found for this is buying gcs at lowes that are not available at an office supply store. That and using it as it was intended for at lumber yards and supply houses (I am a renovation contractor)

It was just a test to see if I could buy a card at Lowes with a card purchased at OD. Moreover, I have noticed that gas cards are often out of stock at my OD.

Just a note, Lowes will not let you purchase any gift cards using a Lowes gift card.
