Even better...

If you have a Bank of America credit card AND your OfficeMax/Depot has Visa GC in stock, you can actually get $38 off $300...

Are any of your three cards Alaska Visa cards? Was the $3 cash back when you use any deal listed as one of your offers?

No Alaska, I do have $3 on Nordstroms and Gelsons deals.

They're killing everything for everybody.

I went to my reliable Staples, and it was wiped out of both Visas and Mastercards. There is no deal there!

Quick question since I'm new to this side of things: How do I load a PIN onto one of these cards?

Vanilla you select the pin at first swipe.

VGC PIN is last 4 of card or you can set a pin dialing the number on the back of the card.

I've been using simply cash, so I hope there is no issues. Haven't been denied yet, but I've only run a couple thousand $ through it so far. And, of course, the cash back doesn't post for two months...

There isn't a problem. Just what you value from the MS. UR is better in this case because of its flexibility.

Ok, went through an OM today and did two rounds of $400 (why $400 instead of $300? Well, I get 2% cash back and the activation fee difference between the $100 card and the $200 card was $1 so it was a net gain/savings of $2 to do so). Went to another OM and they were out of VGCs (well, not out...but they only had two $100 cards left). Worth noting is that the second OM was across the street from a Target while the other wasn't, which I suspect explains the difference.

To be clear, this is a Visa-only offer, right?

You would have been better off buying 3 $200 cards in one transaction. Same $40 discount, one less $6.95 fee. The offer is 2 per customer (transaction) and it does work, I've done it several times, when I can find the $200 cards, that is.

Ugh wasted 2 hours driving to 7 OM/ODs. Nothing but $50 and $25 left. Ran 7k through so fast so can't complain. Going on a road trip so maybe I will get lucky.
