My friendly SM CSR let me know this on my most recent visit. I still keep to my normal order of 19 x $500 ($9,575.05) because I do not want to provide my SSN and DOB to just have it floating around...

If I were in your shoes, I would just make a $150 payment toward my electric bill or cable bill with the card. That is what I did with a bunch of promotional $25 cards I got. Much less headache...

I have heard that sort of analysis before, but ultimately don't agree with it. The premium seat has a value and you either pay for it in cash, points, a combination of the two, or you might have...

Debit as Credit - For MileaguePlusGo

Because I regularly buy MOs at Wally, I do notice that they process the debits as credits.

Also, for another avenue I pursued, I learned that even pin-based transactions at Wally are processed...

I agree. Because I keep my volume at a level that I feel comfortable with, I have never been concerned about raising red flags with my bank and risking a shutdown. For me, my wally only allows 2 MOs...

Really can't see how this quarter makes sense. I usually try to buy VGCs for most quarters. However, can't justify $6.88 fee for a $200 VGC on walmart.com. Can't buy the VGCs in the store because...

Same experience here. I once had a cashier tell me I had to go to the Money Center to load - she used a very dismissing tone. I generally don't get in arguments, because if the cashier is going to...

I am going to agree here. That is absurd that they are calling your bank and putting a hold. It is a huge recipe for this exact disaster. What on earth is the point?

Misinformation is not funny. Sarcasm does not come across in forum posts and really is just the currency of obnoxious people.

What is the fee for Plastiq?

So, what is the % fee for Plastiq? I know the website says between 1% and 2.5%. I assume that varies depending on who you are paying. Anyone here know how much the fee is for paying Navient?
