With AP going away after October, what are people planning to do for the additional 500 of online spend? Are there any other equally easy avenues to fill out the $1500 spend?

P2P payments ends Oct 13 so can't use AP in November.

Does paying medical bills, health insurance or car insurance online count for discover?

Add the Discover to one of my other AP accounts and spend the $500 there. What are they going to do, shut my account down? Won't really matter by the time that happens.

Would linking the same bank account under another AP account work? What I'm afraid of is the payment is able to get sent but then the receiving account gets frozen/banned before the funds get withdrawn.

Just send $1000 and make sure its withdrawn and then try the $500. Its not like its gonna matter at that point if they ban your account.

A quick $1500 in VGC via GiftCardMall for $75 CB - $22 fees = $53 profit is good enough for me.

I read somewhere in the GCM thread that one of the card prefixes that was blocked when they started to block AGC was Discover. I can't remember if it was a Discover GC though.

It was only cards that started with 600649 which is some kind of store gift card that people figured out worked elsewhere.

Serve and Discover 5%

Will loading serve with the discover card count towards the 5% bonus for the fourth quarter for online purchases?
