I lol'd too

I got a good chuckle out of this. I'd like to see the cashier's faces when this mid 30's dude is rocking his Young Money prepaid card.

Recent thoughts/opinions on the Club Grazie program?

Combing through the search function it appears that the Venetian/Palazzo cut comps for players in the 2011 time frame. I'm considering switching my play from the Total Rewards program (Diamond) to...

My experience with Cardpool....

This might be very very much a YMMV, but that the $1000 limit has applied to my purchases of gift cards from Cardpool, not to sales of gift cards to Cardpool. Again, this appears to run counter to...

I was offered $10 and received $5

Slightly different issue for me - I was offered a $10 card from Macy's, Starbucks, or Target. I chose the $10 Target card and was thrilled, um, scratch that, confused to receive a $5 card.

Assuming you mean the SF Bay area.....

I've been to 3 of the same convenience stores in Oakland looking for beans and have found empty racks at all 3. At one store I saw where they *should* be, but there were none there. At the other 2...

It happened to me as well.

I was probably around $8500-$9000 in spending towards the $10k and all of my 75k bonus points posted. I was going to hit the $10k easily, so in the end it didn't really matter. I didn't have any...

At Planet Hollywood in Vegas

You had to go to the Total Rewards desk and show ID as well as your TR card and they "swiped" it for you. There were no kiosks to use.

I don't think so, but could be wrong

Based on my experience, selling eCodes results in a lower price paid from Cardpool, and PJ requires the card to be mailed in, so no real ability to sell them eCodes.

This made me laugh

Thanks for the good chuckle. But "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" is a great song regardless.

Does TCB rebate for GC purchases?

I'm curious if TCB gives a rebate for gift cards purchased thru their link at various online retailers. I know sites like BC specifically exclude GC's, but I couldn't find any definitive info on TCB.

$11k in GC!?!

WOW! Great job. I'd love to know how much your total spend was to get the $11k. I'd also be curious to know what the biggest prize you received was.

I only got 10 prizes and my largest was for...

The plot thickens...

I just was able to process a credit card payment of $1200 (my monthly limit, supposedly). That's interesting that folks may have different limits.

My experience with Venmo

They currently limit me to charging $1200/month on a credit card when paying other folks (this is a total limit, NOT that I can pay $1200 per person). Anytime I try to go over that limit, they...

I don't think it's guaranteed, but it certainly doesn't hurt

My wife and I ate there a couple of years ago and we mentioned to our server that we wanted to go to Tao afterwards (we ended up not going, however). He sent over a lady who sat down with us and...

Great idea thehawk!

I wish I would've thought about putting some very clever on my card. "Grand Poobah", "Bucko Lucko", "Batman", "Agent 007", etc would certainly cause me to chuckle every time I pulled it out of my...

Also just received the $100 card after receiving the $150 card a long, long time ago. Still waiting on the $250 card. It appears that we'll end up getting our cards, just may take awhile.
