"Everyone wins but Wal-Mart."

WM doesn't make money on selling MOs. WM doesn't plan on making money selling MOs. The reason they sell MOs is to get people into the store, and once you are in the...

Yes, if you're using the Amex offer, Amex needs to see separate orders of $50 or higher to credit the $10 for the offer. The offer says that exactly, and that you can use the offer 4 times.

It's not free anymore. At least not at my location. I tried multiple browsers and multiple IPs. Nothing doing. Meh! I'm running out of Hilton gift cards and need to replenish for some trips later...

Never had any questions. Usually about $15k/mo for Jan - Jun, then a little less during the second half of the year unless there are good (free) MS deals like 15 or 20 off 400 at OD/OM.

And...

I've always left "sender" blank (on the types of MO that even have "sender"). Just write your name ("To the order of:") and sign it and that's it.

If the MO was not made out to yourself, how would you deposit it into your account? I suppose if it was endorsed to you on the back. But do banks generally accept endorsed checks?

Depends which Citi card. Double rewards gives you a point when you buy and a point when you pay. Obviously if you return something, you won't "pay" for it ever, so you will never get that second...

I don't know where you heard this, but it is NOT true. When you buy something in a 5% category and then return it, the 5% gets reversed. Same for 3 UR point purchases.

Oh, I know they autodrain, which is really nice. But the point was that the guy KNEW in advance that he wanted a $93.46 Amazon GC, and then swiped 50+ tiny-value FB cards to pay for it. At Lowes, you...

Nope. My cashier was super-nice. She was operating two registers at the same time ... One for me, all she had to do was to hit "CONTINUE" after each card was swiped, and enter a new order for each...

Yeah, that's often a problem. When you have $500 on VGC, it's just a debit card, you swipe, enter PIN, and purchase your Amazon GC easily, it appears to be a regular debit card transaction. But when...

Nothing special about them, just that I consider Amazon GC credit to be the closest thing to cash (when compared to GC of other merchants). Normally I would also consider gasoline GC to be equivalent...

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours at Lowe's converting stacks and stacks of FBs to Amazon GC. Some of them were as old as 2016! I was lazy about cashing in all those $25s and certainly wasn't going...

I think, like most other things in life, common sense provides a good guideline. For example, if you get a new Platinum Amex that has a 10k spend for bonus, and then you proceed to have your first...

BBB sells GC, *BUT* they don't restock very often and their cashiers aren't well-trained about how to do them AND they have maximum 200s. I bought a few 200s there back in Nov/Dec when there was a...

My favorite MO place has a broken MO machine for a few days now. The stack of 200s is growing too rapidly for my comfort. :confused:
