1) Can the 200$ Vanilla Visa still be unloaded in 49.99$ increments in Kate? I havent used Vanlilla visa in a long time so just want to be sure.
Yes they can. I loaded $900 worth that way at my KATE last night.

What happens when you try to load the full $200 in one go?

I know others did even more. $18 profit plus 910 UR per VGC. For me that's the deal/mistake pricing that I'll always remember.
I did. I really have only stepped up my MS in the last 6 months or so. Before that, I used it strictly to meet minimum spend. I did have the Ink then though so I hate I missed it. I've missed out on quite a bit I'm sure.

When you guys go into a new OD, are you just bringing them all the GCs to the register? Or do you go up to the register with one, just to test, buy it. Then come back to the register with many more? Not sure how I'll do this smoothly once I get off work today.

for my very first transaction last Friday, I handed cashier just one gold vanilla which he scanned and it had no fee. I gave the other 4 from my other hand. He called the manager for override and I got my DL in case he asks for it. It was so smooth I went to the next OSS to let DH try it.

You're the best judge on how store personnel reacts and proceed accordingly. If you encounter resistance, just comply with their rules and come back later or have your DH/SO/friend/family member buy some more.

I unloaded 10 x $200 at Kate yesterday via $49.99 per swipe. Boy does it take awhile ...compared to how long it normally takes me to unload much more than that.
