That's a risky piece of advice there. I wouldn't be buying $600 worth to 'test' if a limit is going to be enforced. Voiding VGC's is a pain to a cashier cause each card has to be activated one at a time and voiding and re-ringing if you get burned is a PITA.

Cards are not activated until paid for at my Office Max and Office Depots. I just monitor the screen as the cards are rung up. Historically this fall, the same promotion has had the same or similar wording. My suggestion is based on experience for the same promo in September and October 2016.

The same stores ran a $100.00 VCG promo Monday and Tuesday last. Ad said one only. At different stores, I got up to five per single transaction. Stores did not limit. I had my own reason for stopping at 2,3 or 5 cards per sale on a single receipt.

  True, but the limit 2 on the previous $300 visa promotion was enforced by the register, someone on doctorofcredit mentioned he bought 6 $200 cards in one transaction but only received $30 off not $60.

That guy got greedy. I did two batches of three x $200.00 on two different CC with no problem.
Repeat and rinse at two other locations the same week.

My local OD stores all have restrictions on the number of cards one can buy per day.  One store has a limit of 5 (all gift cards with $99+ are locked up and the manager has to get from lock room every single time) and the other two stores only allow 2 cards.

My Office Depot was out of the $200 VISA cards and was offering the $20-$200 variable as qualifying for the $15 rebate. This particular card also had a $5 back/credit on the face of the packaging automatically loaded to the card on fist use so be on the lookout for one to make it $20 back on $300. YMMV

I noticed the variable load Metabank Visas but was scared negate they had particular applications and I wondered if they are hard coded to only work for certain types of merchants. Anyone have any experience with this?

rated:
Smart. Yes the specialized purpose cards like dining ~Anywhere Visa, salon ~Anywhere Visa and groceries ~Anywhere Visa do have hard coded merchant codes and are almost impossible to cash out. I see more complaints than smiles in the blogs about that. Dining specialty cards are not always working in some dining places especially when the business takes about 20% out of the authorization for anticipated tip. Given you are only going for a few bucks plus the reward on your credit card, IMO avoid those cards

Another blog member reports   ~Dinning Everywhere did not work for MO at WM, but it did at Stop and Shop
