Anyone have any experience with only changing the billing address on the CC account? or do you have to add a authorized user and change the billing address?

That's getting a little personal. Sounds like you exhausted your limit. Have fun playing Rubix Cube.

Question Using coins to buy money orders??

I have read a lot on about buying coins from the US mint and either bringing them to the bank or buying money orders.

The US Mint website says that the intent of the program is not to deposit them in your bank, but they are meant for circulating and when buying you have to agree to this.

I have read on websites that I can take them to a store and get money orders instead. I know Wal-Mart only charges $.60 for a $1,000 money order, so I ordered $2,000 worth and plan on getting 2 money orders to deposit in my bank and pay the card off.

Will you please share you experience with what kind of response you get?

I live in a very small town and am afraid that they will give me a hard time and think that the money isn't real or something and tell me they can't do it. Has that ever happened to any of you?

What about taking them to the post office to buy a money order?

Did anyone ever try and buy US Mint Gift Certificates (instead of coins) with the above mentioned card and if so, did you receive points ?

Sorry - instead PM'd and removed the text. Friends don't let friends deposit coins in banks - they tell them to flip 30 day CDs funded by credit cards.

What is this country coming to when American banks will take millions in dirty drug money from Mexican exchanges but refuse to loan honest American citizens the money to buy clean cash?

Surley banks are not going to pay the credit card transaction fee to accept a CD investment
