So MG actually cares how we pay? I was under the impression they only care that we stay under the transaction limits. At least some of the stores around me never mention using GC as part of the...

That's odd, under $3000 the system shouldn't ask them for that info. Around my neck of the woods, a lot of WM now limit to one transaction but it can be as much as I want...but obviously I can't pay...

You actually asked them if MS purposes are allowed? Netspend is one of the most notorious anti-MS of the prepaid cards. They banned me back in 2012 for doing a few bill pays to my Ink after loading...

Southwest Premier personal

That's for sure. Although if you try to push volume they get spooked quickly, so it's best to find a route with many stores in a row, but away from big MS centers.

The only dollar to mile ratio that matters is JAL, since most of us would agree that's only program worth dealing with, and that's worse than SPG (1.25).

They really have no clue what they're...

Btw, this statement is irrelevant. You clearly didn't read my logic. If you plan to compare apples to apples, you need to compare my $202 cashback to your 10k SPG miles earned from the SAME...

You're incorrect....if you buy 10k worth of GC at the mall, you will spend $79 + about $7 in MO fees at WM to clear them out. For that effort and expense you get EITHER $201.60 OR about 10k SPG...

It's really $200 for $10k points, since you could have done the same MS on a 2x card, or even better on 3x Discover promo. I've never seen hotel redemptions come even close to 1-1.5x unless you...

Yeah, too much trouble for laptops, TV or camera equipment. I can just get them from B&H and pay zero tax and have much faster free shipping. Amazon also doesn't participate in cashback portals in...

It's done very frequently with high dollar items like paintings. I've seen this method advertised in a Peter Lik gallery, they have operatives in low-tax states who re-ship it. There may be a...

The suspect probably panicked when asked out of nowhere, why so many GCs.
