Edge prepaid card= 5% CashBack @ cvs!!!

Looking around found this:
http://www.edgeprepaid.com/Earn-Rewards
http://saverocity.com/pfdigest/prepa...ys-5-back-cvs/

Apparently there is a prepaid card that pays 5% CB at CVS (and other not bad rewards: Link ).
Has anyone used it? Can you share your experience? Requires hard pull?

UPDATE:
* It is a Discover prepaid card issued by The Bancorp Bank.
* Monthly fee is $2.95. "If you load at least $850 onto your card each month, the Monthly Maintenance Fee will be reimbursed." Other fees: Link
* Can be loaded for free via DD, Bank transfer or Western Union (WU fees apply).
* To take advantage of cash rewards: Shop at participating merchants using your Edge card. Select "credit" at the time of purchase and within 90 days you will receive a statement credit that can be used just like cash
* Cash Rewards are statement credit rewards automatically posted to your EmployeeEdge card within 90 days after using your EmployeeEdge card to make a purchase at a participating merchant.
* Main reward eligible merchants: CVS (5%), Marriott (5.6%), Lowes (4.5%), Old Navy/Banana Republic (6.7%)
* Full reward T&C here

Yes, if there's already talk of shutdowns elsewhere it seems like it won't pan out and thus avoid being circled and arrowed. Seems really useful for legitimate spend though.

Been there done that. Shutdown after my first VGC purchase at CVS that I tried to obscure by only loading $270 and purchasing a prescription at the same time

Waiting for the refund check still...

I was shutdown only after buying an AMC movie GC and a stick of gum.
These guys are too sensitive IMO.
Move along folks...nothing to see here.

This is not a big deal, InComm (Blackhawk) announced 5% on their special rewards cards back in Sept, though I haven't seen any vendors having implemented such programs yet.

Please see : http://intelispend.com/products/our-...-prepaid-card/

Discussed on FW too. As I noted there, I don't expect this to last long if CVS is getting the bill for the 5%. (There's language in the fine print about how long it takes to get your CB, which it claims is tied to the amount of time it takes for Edge to invoice the retailers you shopped from.)

Good luck getting rewards from The Bancorp Bank in 90 days.

I was shut down for this as well. It's useless imo.

Simple prejudice -- it's here on a public site. If it dies, why not because of FT?

Not that we'd know either way.
