Family member had to wait 3 weeks until they sent her the money. You may need to call to request it.

Very hard to understand what you're saying, but whatever it is,  it doesn't sound right.

He's just saying that you can't buy currency GC's e.g. Visa/Mastercard with a store GC.

Hbuying st saying that a you can't buy currency GC's e.g. Visa/Mastercard with a store GC.
Okay.  And depending on the store,  that statement is incorrect.

It seemed like he was saying that he tried to hit a spending threshold by buying gc's,  and it wasn't a valid spending method.

@yp,  so thr threshold was hit and you got the signup  bonus?

If you are referring to Staples, it's not hard coded in the register, so try another cashier/store.
Also if you don't buy so many at a time and slip it in with other products, you'll have a better chance.

I found it pretty easy to open a separate pp account for each  bank account. What I'd like to know is has anyone successfully created multiple pp accounts that are linked to the same single bank account (think: joint bank account)?

If you activate with customer service you don't need to attach a bank account.

At a certain point they will ask for identification for each account

I don't think you need to attach an account no matter how you open it, but don't you need it to be able to send (even if funded from another source like the cash cards)? CMIIW..

Why isn't this talked about more?
Happened to come across this post and I was like, "What?? No one talks about this on DDF!"

Is it dead? Can you still pay with CC at CVS for these?
