Received a Staples Visa for paper rebate today and it requires activation prior to use by calling a phone #. (prompt type stuff to activate) 1855 2561612

this may be in response to all the recent fraud issues with cards being drained.

Two of mine were fine on the automatic system, but the third one had to speak with cs person, and answer about 26 questions

They had to put the tracking number on the uneven part of the card, were the card amount is punched thru, nice planning

I pine for the good old days of rebates being paid by check.

Or better yet, by automatic Pay Pal deposit

Cards are still money. I used 9 cards recently at the clinic to pay for med bill, then used the receipt to draw money from HSA account sent to my bank, easy way to cash out the cards.

I also a few weeks ago, used 4-5 at our car insurance office to pay ahead, and when that runs out, they will go back to auto-debit

Our Power Co, will not take in person cards, and have a $3 online card payment fee, so they are out for me, but I know others who pay their light bill.

I do like the idea they are not pre-authorized now, the phone process worked fine on 6 of the 7 cards I received, the one had to be with cs person and took 5 minutes.

The tracking number is also printed on the paper.
