I learned my lesson on that one! No longer do I let her GCs get processed first (she went shopping once after hers processed and I waited on mine). I now call in advance or unbeknownst to her I purposelly get my GCs first now so she has to wait until the very end of our stay at CS desk to sign for the cards.

At first I thought I was making progress when my wife started volunteering to load my RB at Target. It's more like 1 step forward 2 steps back

OK, that's pretty funny.

In my case, I'm just lucky there's not an AmEx Prepaid DSWcard.

So far no phone call at my local SM within loop. But DH and I stay just under $5k each per trip. And by now she doesn't even look at the info on my form, just initials at bottom.

...and I would NEVER shop while we're there to buy VGC's. There's a reason I have my own cards in my name. What he doesn't know, I don't have to explain.

They waste no time in filling out the forms. I went in once to test the waters. $500 and nothing was collected. The next time I did $1k and had to fill out the form. Two weeks later, today, I did $2k and they already had the form pre-filled for me. I could get used to this despite having such a bad experience last year. Just sucks that they don't take AGCs.
