It seems this is now posting as a cash advance with Discover, and not just showing up as one initially. Just got my statement and a transaction that posted on 3/3 was considered a cash advance, and I...

Last week when OM/OD had the Amex GC promo my experience was that it applied automatically at OD but they had to scan the coupon from the binder at OM. This week at OM they didn't have the coupon...

No, she had the exact same problem as the other guy had had. Got up to the point of entering the account number which the system said was invalid, even though it had worked before. I was successfully...

This has been my experience too. Tried to do BofA consumer loans last week and it didn't take the account number. Thought it might be cashier error so I tried again today with one of the "good"...

I've had multiple Walgreens cashiers tell me that they can't sell me more than one $500 GC due to federal law. No point arguing with them. Even if you point out that you can buy ten $500 GCs per day...

I have actually seen sites that say to call them to do a split tender transaction when it gets to the page where you enter CC info. TigerDirect does, for example, and they've got an Amex Sync deal...
