Have the Aeroplan CC, haven't loaded BUXX yet. This would be a great opportunity if true...

5.5K

I loaded another 500 today using the same CC. It is 5.5K in 25 days

I just loaded 10 X 500 load within 2 weeks using the same CC.

I will try to see if 11 load works next week.

So the limit is $5.5K/month or can you load more? I assume calendar month?

Does anybody know if US Buxx allow cashback?
I have tried to CB using various amounts $20,$40,$100, but always get payment not authorized at grocery stores. MO and normal purchases work fine on the same card. I do not have a US Bank ATM in my area and have not tried on any other ATM.
I searched for it and could not find a definite answer. Some people have claimed to get CB at grocery stores, however others say US Buxx doesn't work for CB.

Simple answer: it doesn't
Elaborate answer: This was the first thing I tried when I got the card. It was denied so I sent a msg to CS. They confirmed that CB is not a product feature.

My USB buxx card was declined at Kmart bill pay due to "incorrect PIN".
It used to work at Walmart fine. Does it work at Kmart?

VISA Buxx (2015)

Using usbank buxx I loaded a card this morning and got an error, tried again got the same error. So I thought maybe there was a problem with the cc being used, maybe over 30 day limit, so I used the other card on the account. Now the load worked but I see a pending card on both cards. Obviously I don't want to call unless both charges stick. If both pending charges post Would I be better to call us bank or dispute the cc charge?

Also anyone have any experience with this scenario?

It happened to me on Friday night. At first, i thought they froze my account. I then tried again several times and even called to change for a new pin but still it didn't work. I called on Saturday morning and was told there were some technical issues with the system and had nothing to do with the account itself. The agent couldn't say when the system would be fixed but i managed to use the pin to cash out on Saturday afternoon.

Its a pending charge. Most likely the pending charge on CC #1 will fall off and you don't have to worry about this at all. Right now you are freaking out about a pending charge which may or may not happen. CC companies cannot resolve disputes on a transaction until it has fully been posted. Allow at least another 2 or 3 business days and see which transactions post before proceeding. So the way I see it play out is that the pending charge on CC #1 will fall off and CC #2 will post with the transaction.
