You could possibly stealthily sneak 1 or 2 cards in but if you want to do 5 then you probably need to give the CSR a heads up as to what you're doing.

I have also been told that Amex business cards are good still at Staples and OM. If that is in error, just post it.

And in regards to my post on timing of closure and redemption of rewards was the line where I stated that I was uncertain as to whether Chase gave you 30 days or not.
Others posted that Chase does give 30 days.

My ultimate goal is to try and provide the most accurate and up to date information available. I am not reluctant to qualify my information when uncertain of it.
AMEX SC+ CCs stopped earning 5X for me at OM about a year ago (still earn 5X at Staples). So unless something has changed, OM is a no-go.

You won't be able to convert 5 $200 cards to a single MO at WM. They are hard coded to accept a max of four swipes (cards) so max MO you could get would be $799.xx with four $200 cards (or $800 if you pay the MO fee with cash).

His question was whether he could use 5 $200 prepaid Staples cards to buy one $1K Simon card at Simon--and then use that $1K card for bp or mo at WM. I think that's on topic here.

At least for me,finding a WM that will allow more then 1 card to be swiped w/o asking to see the card/s is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Yes some still exist but I wouldnt suggest that a person starting out to rely on finding such a place

In my area, four out of six WMs let me do multiple swipes, no questions asked. And I have had similar luck when traveling in other states. (I donít go to big cities, typically.)

YMMV.

Id say 1 out of the closest 30 to me will allow split payments, but I didnt say it cant be done. Again it was geared to a newbe who might not know what the score in their area. I was trying to tell them to 1st find out whats what and then jump in. Would hate for a new person to buy say 9K and find out the few places by them card everything. Out of the 30 I mentioned above Id say 1/3 card, even for 1 MO. Major Met area

I like that you don't consider yourself a noob
