Did you get hit with a cash advance? I just loaded my Meta Travel card online with my Discover IT and immediately got an email alert from Discover that a cash advance was posted to my card.

There have been reports about Serve/your credit provider hitting users that do CC loads with a Cash Advance label/fee.... looks like you're one of the unlucky ones. =(

Serve is not a cash advance on my recent Discover loads.

Yeah it does qualify. I checked my statement ending Oct 24th. I already have a few hundred in Costco gc's and I don't want to lose out on the fidelity amex 2% so I've used Costco gc's as filler on their separate spend xx/month get xx bonus.

I'm also wanting to know if giftcards.com is another method for buying gc's because I still have the full 1.5k on another card to go. I read giftcardmall is another method but I'm worried about cash advance fees with discover.

I'm looking to load them to serve so it has to be the pin debit cards and my understanding is amex gc's won't work.

Too bad Target in-store doesn't work (I'm assuming, haven't tried).

I purchased a discounted store giftcard from giftcards.com and it counted. Not sure if the VGC/MCGCs are charged the same way, though.

Has anyone purchased a Simon Mall VGC online and had it qualify for 5%?
