Ontario Mills. Brea Mall still has them for sure (as well as Outlets of Orange and I think Cabazon).

thx Orange has usually been a pleasure to deal with, Ontario was good then became a hassle but I still went there when staying in that area. Yep Brea mall or Orange Outlets it will have to be

fwiw, Carlsbad will run a dummy charge so after they load the cards and you swipe your CC it better be with a CC that wont Decline it since it will see it as 2 charges, had to drive down to SD

Yes, Orange is really great. They put me on their list w/out me even asking and I'd only purchased there 3-4 times. Brea seems to be good also. Ontario was frequently out - but they are closest to me at 20 minutes so it was convenient. I'll drive the extra 25 minutes for Brea or Orange though. Not the worst thing in the world. Carlsbad is over an hour away - I'd have to be hard up to go there, so no worries.

Ding, ding, ding! You are correct!

As of Sunday afternoon (15 March), Pentagon City had only 35 cards left.
Clerk said she heard they'll be out until at least mid-April.

Terrible news. I can reach Ontario Mills in 20-25 minutes. With the traffic in Southern California, I'm just not sure it's worth it for me to drive elsewhere.

Anyway, for the time being, MS is taking the backseat. I'll probably be taking a break because of the Coronavirus. It's not worth risking my health for a few reward points.

Me too, I told the mall clerk that I may not see her within next 3 to 5 weeks, so no 1k card now is fine.

My go-to and extremely MS-friendly WM is not in what I'd call a low-income area, but it is the closest WM to a city which, if you look at its Wikipedia page, is noted for having the highest poverty rate of any city in the country. And from what I can tell, it is the favored WM of residents of that area.

Guess its a YMMV issue. I was suppose to fly out of state on Sun and CXed it and didnt want to be left holding onto a large amount of SMGCs. So I decided to do my local route. Got to say I cant ever remember being able to get in & out so fast Midway thru the route I hit 2 locations where they had a sign posted "No MOs o/o/o". Which meant I would either have to drive alot out of my way or hit 2 locations in bad neighbors, got the "please show me the card you will be using" thats after having already made 9 successful stops, didnt bother with the 2nd location and accepted either drive way out of way or leave it for another day, I drove out of way after finishing off the rest of the route, not wanting to chance any restrictions being put in place that might hinder me from unloading them all

Now its vacation time for me at least until Corona passes, will limit myself to 500s at the supermkt when I earn gas pts

Does anyone know if the Simon mall in Brea, CA is open today? Was going to see if I can make 1 last run before the shutdown.

why didnt you simply go to simon.com look up Brea and get the tel # and call them, which is exactly what Ive been doing ever since the posts where folks said they went and they were soldout of the 1Ks, and youd be killing 2 birds with 1 stone, 1- are they open and until what time & 2- do they have any 1Ks left, they can be open and soldout of their last cards say 15 mins ago , and a person that may respond they are open till 7pm wont know that they are soldout of the cards

That wasn't the point but thanks anyways. I was simply asking because due to the Orange County ordinance to shut down non-essential services effective 3/18 if anyone knew if Brea Mall was going to be open.

Again had you called you would have gotten your answer, they pick up = they're there, no one picks up Id call again and no one picks up = no one is there
