You're stating your own assumptions as if they were fact. Neither of us know what the companies know or don't know, but I know that some front-line employees do not know what MS is even here in Madison. In fact, many of them only know we're doing it for miles. I think that the employees of the only grocery store that takes GCs for MOs here don't even know that.

And may God bless them! The other day I helped a new WM cashier find out from her supervisor that they indeed do reload Serve cards. I know, I'm just too kind

Bought my first SMGC today. Funny thing is she required to fill out paperwork since it was "over $500". We simultaneously agreed it was easier to load only $497 to the card so the total would be < $500 and we were all good. It's so convenient when a Walmart is directly across the street from a Simon mall ;-)

Paperwork for that low amount? The one by me requires me to fill out the form, but that's for $10k.

I've been asked to do paperwork for $500 at one place. The funny thing was when I tried to go a little lower, the employee followed me down, insisting I still needed paperwork. I asked "so what is the threshold?". She asked the manager and said the answer was "large amounts"...

A lot of times they just don't know. Often times, I encounter cashiers at Wally who have never done a BB load/Billpay and I have to walk them through the process.

I am thankful to see the right timing of Simon Mall Gift Card after CVS banned all credit card purchase on Vanilla Reload. I almost gave up the game on manufactured spending.

Enjoy it while it lasts. All good things must come to an end.

26 x $500? Isn't the max $10k for personal? If they have a business account, they should be getting the $1k cards. Are you sure it's not 26 x $1,000?

That could work since it's $13k.
