PSA: Drain the MC GCs immediately after purchasing.  You've been warned.

Why drain the MC immediately? It is issued by US bank.

The MC scam is like the prepaid phone refill scam....
Buy the cards with stolen credit cards, put them on eBay, a month or 2 down the road the refill card gets cancelled once they realize a stolen card was used

I stopped buying the MC gc more than a year ago.  Harder to cash out and easier for funds to be stolen.
I'd rather forego the $20MM on my 5% credit card than risk $200 loss of one MC gc.

What calendar do you use?

FYI:  If you don't have to take your shoes off to count the months, it is LESS than a year old.

Maybe because we stopped buying them about a year ago?

Tie up money in Staples gc?  No thanks.  I'd rather use my 5% cc for Staples purchases and with dearth of FAR stuff it can take a while to use up Staples gc.   
The beauty of the Visa gc is that you can go directly from Staples to WM and buy $799.30 money order with $800 in Visa prepaids.
The money order is deposited into checking account before the charge for the visa prepaids has hit credit card account.

rated:
Thank you nomoneyinmywallet and other fw members for the heads up

rated:
Agreed with all of the warnings on MC GC's. They are more difficult to cash out as they tend to scan as CC rather than DEBIT @ WM payment pads, where WM accepts DEBIT for MO purchases (but not CC), so you need to act quickly to try and change payment method to DEBIT. 

MC GC's are also apparently issued sequentially, where hackers/scammers know that, enabling them to more easily steal the GC funds if you don't use them up quickly

That said, there's still a 2 more days of buying $300 VISA GC's though @ Staples (3 if you count today), where those are considered much safer:


*EDIT* The FW messaging system went nuts. It decided to insert a ton of "Blue Apron " links in this post, even though I never mentioned that site/product.

*EDIT2* Fixed link to the other thread, which had a trailing blank space in it (resulting in an invalid/broken link).

  Yes, that is the policy, but the register will accept it if you find a willing cashier.

  Could I pay the $800 with 4 transactions of $200 GC? Thanks  

rated:
Visa GC are easy to use at WMT for a MO, but MC GC are harder. If you really don't mind the higher fee at the post office, register your MC GC online IMMEDIATELY and set a PIN, then go to the PO and buy a MO. Their new system will take the MC GC very easily once a PIN is set. I do not know about the older PO systems.

And WMT and the PO will take 4 x $200 GC if you tell the cashier to process each @ $200.

YMMV on using a GC to buy a GC at SPLS. I've done it many times and have also been shot down many times.

Some people sign up to post self promoting deals on Amaz & eBay etc
But first they have to get their post count up. To do that they post randomly in various threads.
Some of then do that in groups or with multiple usernames so that they can green their posts to fool us.
Two posts above your's are the example.

How do you set a PIN?
I tried setting PINs for both VISA and MC but the site always throws me an error?
Can someone post a link to the sites where you register them to set a PIN.
TIA

May I know the fees for the visa GC..?

The $100 visa GC has a fee(?) of 5.95 while the $200 Visa GC has a fee(?) of $6.95 I think.

  Did you use it as credit or debit, some readers default to one or the other and you have to change it on the screen
As in fricken WalMart

rated:
Speaking of WalMart and fred meyer (kroger)
If your card had the option to use as credit or dedit, at wm and fred Meyer if under $50 changing it to CREDIT it still went as no pin debit negating the card bonus if any.
Mastercard told me to just buy a stores gift card which will go as credit and get the bonus.
WM has now seemed the changed all that and if I say credit it goes as such

rated:
there wasn't any choice at post office. slide card, agent enters amount I specified. Rejecto.
i may try one more time where agent isn"t required to enter amount.
I was trying to get a 798.40 mo with 4 $200 VGC.

  I have not been to a post office to buy postage in years but as I recall you have to tell them if credit or debit.

They may not allow money orders to be bought with any kind of card

Surprised nobody pointed out the above (discovered it on my own a few minutes ago). Today (Mar 18, 2017) is the last day of the current VISA GC offer.
