no difference between liquidating $500 $200 $100 or even $50 when msing. I've already redeemed this offer two times and plan on making three more trips. I'll be able to liquidate all the cards in one visit to Walmart.

I'd agree, if you buy the $100 x2 why not buy a $500 x2 and get five times as many points...

$500 are not part of the promo. Avoiding fees and chase Q2 chase freedom is why I'm buying.

Most people would tend to agree that denoms smaller than $500 are a hassle to liquidate but it works for you then more power to you. I'm still better off buying $500s at the regular price than doing this promo since I cash out with Schwab. Less trips to the store, dont have to use different accounts and business as usual at my WM.

Purchase 2x$50 and 2x$100 together, both discounts in a single transaction.
No fuel rewards though.

​​​​​​​Anyone who has been paying attention would know that not all WM's are so accommodating.

agreed find what works best for you and keep it moving. People tend to complain and not make the best out of his or her situation.

Bought 2x $100 VGCs at vons in camarillo today, beware! Upon opening the card package, one VGC had the last 4 digits completely scraped off. Luckily I got through to BHN quickly before the card was drained and was able to get a replacement card mailed out ASAP.

I am assuming you use AMEX PRG to buy a VGC and as a result you earn Membership Rewards points but how do you cash out the VGC using Schwab plat account?

He also holds the Schwab Amex Platinum, which allows a cardholder to redeem MRs for 1.25c/MR to a brokerage account.

Ok. I thought he was talking about cashing out VGC,.not cashing out MR.. I am always interested in learning more ways of liquidating VGC as it seems to be getting tougher over time.
