I did Staples GC's for the first time in many years, maybe ever, last month. First the $200 with $5 off activation, then $200 with free activation. The rack was chock full of the $200's.

IME it is routine for Cap1 to check in with you when you do a lot of MSing. There's no way around it.

When I had my first Cap1 account, I think it took about 5 months for them to shut me down.

I haven't traveled since early March, but I'm thinking of taking a trip - the "main cabin" fare I saw for PHL-LAS was around $220 round-trip. That would have been about the old BE fare, while MC was...

SM personnel are pretty well trained in this. By and large they won't care if you are together or apart, and if you have same last name and/or address, they will pick up on it. Whatever they would...

I remember the very first time I flew. I was 14 and was going away to summer school. My mother insisted that I had to wear a coat and tie because "flying is something that people do dressed up."

This all reminds me of the best coup I ever pulled off. It was around 1990 - no ID's to fly, no checking on anything, and huge discounts for Saturday night stayover.

I lived in DCA and had a...

Pre-covid I was flying regularly between PHL and LAS. I would often fly PHL-LAX-LAS rather than nonstop for the extra miles (especially in the EQM = Miles rather than $ days) and because there was...

I don't want to get into too much detail, but I had some workarounds that let me do quite a lot of payments. In early March it seemed like that had blown up, and a week later WM stopped doing money...

Well don't dat suk. After three months on ice due to WM closure, we get this.

I guess the good news is that Simon appears to be selling the same limits online as they were selling in person.

If you are banned, you can only do one MO at a time. Fortunately my WM doesn't impose a one-transaction limit on me. No one knows why it happens, but it's for real.

Not at AA, but I've gotten it from other institutions, like my health plan and at least one or two financial institutions. Unless they made some suspicious request, it could be totally legit.

I was disappointed to be sure about the shipping charge, but I simply bought a package of 19, which has the flat $10.95 shipping, so at least that brings it down to 58 cents per card, or 11 basis...
