NW Buxx

•Initial purchase fee: $5 (waived with promo code: 02050053 - ( the promo code appears to be working consistently)
•$2 load fee
•Max load per rolling 7 days: $500
•Max load per rolling 30 days: $1,000
•Max ATM per week: ($200 - but only if specifically enabled online, including PIN setup). No fee for some Allpoint ATMs (no way to know in advance if the Allpoint ATM will ding you $1; check your account carefully and call if necessary to reverse the $1 charge…IME 2/3 Allpoint ATMs do charge the fee).
•Max spend per rolling 7 days: $800
•Max # of CC on file is 2.
•Max balance per card: $1000
•Max of 2 loads per CC per 7 day rolling period.

If you card fails to load, check to see if there are at least 7 calendar days between loads, make sure the load won't bring your card above the maximum balance, or try the other CC.

Funding with Citi cards codes as a purchase for NW Buxx.

If you have 1 favorite ms card, you can make an au, assuming that type gives a different number for each au, and use x2. Sorry if I'm being captain obvious.

I am not talking about doing $2K max across all Buxx cards.
I load 4k on two ccs in one day, and another 4k on the same cards about 3 days later.

Just did 4k across two ccs today, and will do another on the 25th or so. Been doing it that way for months with no issue.

2k is definitely do able, whether you can go above 2k in 7 days though...i'll update when i do my next set

This is for US Bank Buxx? Because I've never been able to load more than $500+fees in one day on a teen card with USB.

That must be related to the charge initially posting as a cash advance on your CC and your CA limit is low or something. I can load $2k to a USB Buxx in less than 2 minutes.

Unfortunately, many, many cards use the same number for AU cards. Most Amexes don't (Fido does) but most non-biz V/MC do.

It's UNREAL how slow that site is. And it even times out every now and then.

Haha you're right, that might have been a little generous to USB.

Barclays doesn't for any of their cards. I've got 4 AUs on both my Arrival+ and Aviator Red all with different numbers.

Damn son, must have some serious CC limits with Barclays, they keep them pretty small for me.

That's what I use, and shifted all the credit from usair card to bulk up the A+

If you're willing to take a hard inquiry and have good annual income, Barclays will pretty much give you whatever CL you ask for IME. I was initially given 15.5k with Arrival+. Asked for $30k and it was granted it instantly. I was given 9.5k with US Airways (now Aviator Red) and asked for 20k and was granted it instantly. As I said, each CL increase request resulted in a hard inquiry but it was worth it for my MS strategy.

Why not just open a new card and shift?
