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)

What state are you in? Was that the Gift Card mall visa or MC?
I'm in Lakewood and it was a regular visa GC.

So which Walmart did you go to, Brick or Howell? How did they process it? In Brick they tried with me, but couldn’t do it. Even called a manager.

I have used my MVD at Wal-Mart to buy a MO and they charge 70 cents for it. I am wondering if there are any cheaper places out there?
Doesn't MVD = cash at bank, why buy MO? I'm confused...

I guess I should try both and let you know which is easier...
Are these single MVD's with $3k loaded on it or 6 seperate MVD's?

I was thinking, before you said it, that this thread should be rolled into bb and the wiki can go somewhere else...

I corrected the Wiki.  I don't understand why USPS was put there to begin with. 
I myself have also tried several months ago, it does not work.  Why do people keep on asking?!

And, who put RA as charging $1? I highly doubt these fees vary by location...

Saver2k, I guess you can feel free to delete the Wiki, now that folks have it down ;)

Because it has and AFAIK does still work in some rural locations with the old system. I need to stick to my guns.
I will leave this thread for the experts and go back to to the 1-10k thread where I am welcomed.  :'(
