Topic Wiki

Ill spell it out for the feeble.
You dont call up and ask if they take Visa gift cards for  a money order.
You dont call up and ask if they take Mastercard gc for a MO
You dont flippin call!


You go into a store and ask for an MO and she says ok its, XXX.XX say no p, take out your debit card and swipe. If the rep says no debits then apologize and leave. If she says lemme see that is that a gc say NO ITS A DEBIT. if she asks wheres your name you say (among many other options to think of) the permanent one is on the way and im using the temp one until i receive it. If you need to swipe more than once, its ok to have multiple debits (for those who are lacking in common sense). But be nonchalant dont be in your face about it to the rep. Reps want to feel they're in charge, its natural for a minimum paid employees...




I think this should give the basics on how to get a MO if you find a place.... this is not rocket science. But it seems like it is to some.... Where to cash out GCs for MO:

Where                                       Which gift card                                   Fee                                     max MO amount                                   

Service desk @ Wal-Mart                  MVD,  Visa from Meta bank,                                  70 cents                                           $1000
                                                  chase (phased out)                                                                                      $1000   
                                                     
Rite Aid                                                                                                 $0.89                                          $500
       
"HaNesher HaGadol"                            One Vanilla                                 .52                                          $500 max     
meijer-69 cents up to $1000-most stores
NOTES:
MVD charges 50 cents per transaction so ask for MO of card amount- (fee+ 50 cents) eg @WM ask for 498.80 on MO (or cover $1.20 some other way)

Obviously CV is playing dumb.Obviously Scott @ MV is also a terrible person, right?! ::)

Dan has been surprisingly forthcoming about MOs in recent weeks (at Walmart etc.), don't be more righteous than the king himself!
Now if only he'd divulge those other places where he gets cheap MOs...  ;)

Thanks to Reb Mendel, I've been ok for a while now (besides for when their machine is broken, which for some odd reason, is like every other day).
Lol. 

Dan has no risk by divulging anything.  He lives in cleveland.  This will only get killed on a store by store basis,  and therfore Cleveland has nothing to worry about. 

I personally have nothing to worry about bec all the stores in my area are already killed. 

In general,  certain things aren't supposed to be spoken out. 

If people are to dump to figure it out themselves -  they're probably also too dumb to use it properly. 

This game requires trial and error. 
If you aren't willing to do at least that,  then you're ruining it for yourself + everyone else.  (spoonfeeding is very damaging -  those that need it/wait for it -  they aren't cut out for this)

Enjoy!

True, to some extent.
Though spoon-feeding (MV style) will forever be debated, I don't think think the ones that were inquiring in this thread are n00bs, and hence there's no "spoon-feeding" involved.
E.g somehow PG's GM is still chai v'kayom, and in fact Dan links to it on the MS (and it's been spoon fed time and again by posters in that thread).

Unless you live in NYC, it's not quite possible for it to have been killed in all the stores in your area; as there's always Walmart.

First of all,  TBH I don't know who MV is.  Are you refering to mile value? I don't follow him.

2nd of all,  PGGM is waaaay different than this stuff.  It's an automatic process.  Either you do it right,  and it works,  or you screw up,  and it doesn't work.
(although,  I am still surprised that its still working,  bec noobs would screw up and call amex and ask why the credit didn't post even though the purchase was refunded)

3rd of all,  I live in "northern-central Jersey" .  I'm sure you know where that is.  ;)

And what do you mean by "the ones inquiring in this thread"?

I had a pleasant surprise today getting multiple MOs on One Vanilla cards for 52 cents each at the Nesher HaGadol. (I updated the Wiki.)

I saw reports on another thread here on DDF.  As late as July someone bought a MO at the USPS.

If I was mistaken, or if that is no longer the case, I apologize for the misinformation.  Please edit the wiki.

Pardon my ignorance,  What's Nesher Hagadol and where is it located?

i see - thanx. It's a visa one vanilla?

one more ques: Do you pre-register the one vanilla online first with a pin
or take the cards straight to customer service desk and make the last 4 digits (or a single random) PIN?
