Stores that sell $500 GCs(up to 2019)
 
Locally, the grocery store that has quite the monopoly, does not stock the Vanilla $20-$500 GCs.

I want to max out the BOA Cash Back bonus category for grocery store spending. Struck out w/VRs (they have those available) using CC payment. So, I thought, "ok, let me try GCs". All I need is three!

I am going on travel soon to a Kroger city. Curious if anybody knows if they have the $500 GCs. They have a great variety of GCs for sale normally. I could stop close to the airport unless my ride is in a hurry.

Thanks for responses. :)

Kroger is good for variable visas @ 5.95. Also their money orders are better bc their pos will automatically drain a debit card and leave a remaining balance. You don't have to ask the cashier to key anything. Swipe pin enter. New balance, swipe pin enter done. Plus they have more teeth than the walmart clan. Generally nicer too

First, the "more teeth" comment cracked me up. Nicely done.

Second, what's a MO run at Kroger and how high will they let you go on the amount? I need to pay a $2,000 deposit on my kids' school tuition and was thinking about trying to do it with a MO from Kroger in Atlanta.

No big deal for 2k. 3k will probably get you a form

Same as Walmart. $1k/69cents. I've pushed 3k about 3 times a week. I've pushed 5 with my favorite cashier. I asked her the limit, her response was 'as many as you want'. Tread lightly

More than 1k requires additional info though right? Or have I been misinformed?

Never given them any info. I buy at several stores.

So, looks like I should be ok with Kroger, thanks! :)

I was about to ask about Food Lion but probably won't need it....

Just out of curiosity, which Bank of America card are you using? The ones I am most familiar with give a better bonus at gas stations and I didn't see any on the website that were better at grocery stores.

Can I do $2K in a single money order or do I have to do two separate ones for $1K each?

my walmart forces me to break it into 2 transactions and the charge (70cents) is applied to each transaction.

I didn't see any $500 Visas at my Kroger in IL, but they have 8 million of the mastercards of this type: http://romsdeals.com/wp-content/uplo...0321295569.jpg
They had some Visas of smaller amounts on the rack. If you've never been to a Kroger family store look around - mine has at least 3 separate gift card racks in addition to some random cards at the checkouts.
