Someone had started a thread that they started carrying Visa Gift Cards at Advance Auto Parts. It didn't last very long and wasn't as clever as the others.

I too fell for selling my unwanted Southwest giftcards to these crooks (albeit long before this thread was started). Needless to say, I've been waiting over a month for my checks that they "sent"....

I think the clamp-downs have a lot more to do with the exposure everything receives today. Just taking a guess but there are probably 5 times as many travel bloggers as there were 5 years ago. The...

Ever heard of using a little discretion? Just because the CFO of Walmart didn't decide at that very instant to stop accepting debit for MOs doesn't mean you haven't done any damage. Arbitrage...

I'm going to get the popcorn and watch as you're told that blogging is a fine honest living, and had nothing to do with the shutdowns.
