I did one as a test buy, then I went back and grabbed a bunch more.

Money Laundering

Some smuchk thought I was money laudering, so he took a copy of my ID when I bought 5000 worth of cards. Should I be concerned?

All the high-value Visa/MC are gone from my stores, but I'm cleaning up on $200 AGC for Redbird loads. Still working as of noon today in Socal.

Can these be used to buy money orders from grocery stores and/or be loaded to Redbird? Any particular ones better than others for those purposes?

Yes, the vanillas can be used to buy MOs or load to RBs but AGCs are strictly for RB loading.

I am not able to buy anything more than $200 with Credit card. Is anyone able to buy high value Vanilla GC's with CC?

Just purchased a few thousand. They checked ID and called in an authorization, but it didn't take more than a few minutes for the whole trip.

Still working as of 3pm EST.

Keep in mind that vanillas can only be loaded $49.99 per transaction at wal-mart (for BB and MOs).

Live @ OD as of 4PM. Unfortunately, my store only had $100s but they're clear of those as well now

I bought 200 x 5 Gold packaging 200$ Vanilla Visa at my local Officemax. Drove over to walmart and tried to use one of them at the Kate. Declined. Used a random 4 digit pin. Tried again. Declined. With the loud message of "invalid card" didnt want to attract any more attention (next to money center) so left.

Tried using it at the local mcdonalds drive through as credit. declined. website shows full 200$ on the card and two mcdonalds credit charges...message says "970200 Denied : Delayed Redemption".

Anyone want to PM me or explain how to load Kate with this card. btw, I did attempt only $49.99.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

right; it is not advisable to buy $49.99 MOs at WM anyway. I was referring to other stores where vanilla debit are accepted for MOs with no issues. AGCs can be loaded to RBs but can't be used for buying MOs anywhere.

You didn't wait long enough from purchase to attempted load. You should give it at least a couple hours. I usually wait till overnight. They're not like the $500 Sunnies you can buy at WM.

They're not activated yet. Give it 60-90 minutes. Sometimes longer but that's typically the wait time if they're not activated immediately.

I purchased $200 to test on Saturday. I then bought $1,800. I did receive a FA on the 2nd purchase. I cleared it and the transaction went through fine I then came back later in the day to purchase $2,000 more. I purchased $2,000 today on a separate card. I haven't tried more than that.
