VISA Buxx (2015)

I think a few moons ago with BB it might have been easier to slide a few Buxx cards past some analysts as "Debit cards" but lately, it's been much harder. Of course, if you've been lucky and was approved before - don't EVER change out your "Debit card" because it's unlikely they'll let it slide again!

Getting weirdness with the load limits on my USB cards. Seems like there's a new, lower limit in place in the last week or two, but I can't pin it down.

True. I noticed limits may be shared by my other cards with the same platform as USbuxx. In my case, what used to be $5K per CC load has been reduced much lower threshold (like $2K?). When I kept getting the error message after making sure it was not related to 30 day rolling, I switched to another CC and it went through. Problem now is there's a limit in editing/switching cards so I may ran out of cards to use...lol

I'm also having trouble loading. Can't put anything at all on mine, and ran into the card limit also! So, have 1 card I can use, and can't load anything. Sigh. If they have new limits, etc., it would be nice if they told people.

Same here...

glynot Jan 5, 15 9:03 pm

ouch, that means we can really only use 2 VB cards given the restrictions around changing payment methods

Haven't tried loading since late December and currently out of the country... Is what I'm hearing there is a new 'per cc' load limit of 2k per month? So basically 4k monthly load limit?

If so I'll take something over completely gone for sure!

Are we absolutely sure you guys didn't just run into some sort of daily limit for the CC?

The wiki does say
Max load per day: $2,000 per CC
Max load per rolling 30 days: $2,000 per card, but $5k per CC (if you have multiple teen cards.)

Try it tomorrow. It's 2k per day per CC

Last time I tried with that same CC I did 4 full loads 2 days ago, and get authorization errors now.

You gotta be more descriptive on your loading pattern. What do you mean by 4 full loads? A full load is $517.50 so doing it 4x would be over $2K/day. Despite this...are you sure its not related with the CC being flagging as potential fraud. You are hitting it pretty hard in multiple transactions of the same amount within the last 2 days.

Loads
 
I havent had any issues. I have 4 cards in my account and I do 2k of loads on each card each month (throughout the month). I dont pay much attention to the funding, whenever I get an error, I just change the source. I rotate between 4 funding sources (2 paypal Bus debit cards (process as credit) and 2 credit cards. I did my latest load yesterday, I always wait for 31 days from my 4th prevous load to do the next. Quite easy, I just mark my calendar to do it accross all four cards. I am curious to know how many cards I can get. I do wish the website was faster.

I had loading issues in the past - specifically with CSP. I was diligent in not going over load limits and know this wasn't the issue. Kept getting the same error messages that were described above (the error messages that weren't related to going over load limits). Search through the thread for the approximate dates as to when this occurred. Tried different cards (I think 2 or 3 different cards) and ensured billing address was fine (which it was) with no progress. About 2 weeks ago (still having the same issues), my account status went from ACTIVE to PFRAUD and has been that way since then. I had 2 total US Bank VB cards, under one parent account. My wife was the parent and the two accounts were one under her name and one under my name.

Take all of my information within context of your own situation but thought it'd be helpful with those dealing with error issues not related to loading limits.

So are you going to call USB about the PFRAUD account status?
