Oh. All confused. Is it each card three times $10? Or $10 a card up to three cards per person?

My local kosher grocer just gives me their machine at the checkout counter to make my way through my cards. I’ll have to allot triple the time to run through them this year, but at least the store credit will last me three times as long :D

Best of my knowledge its every local store that has no more then 2 branches. Amex has a map on their site. But they told me that most approved stores are NOT listed there. You can always call Amex to confirm a specific store.

Don't think there's any way to know with 100% certainy, but I think conventional wisdom is that they say that every year, but don't really stick to those terms.
I believe there was an issue with the gift exchange last year because they processed all of their charges the next day (instead of before midnight), and so none of the SBS credits were automatically applied.

I can't seem to find the fine print from last year's SBS, but based on the 2014 terms and conditions (https://icm.aexp-static.com/Internet/NGMS/US_en/Images/American_Express_2014_SBS_Card_Member_Offer_Terms.pdf), I don't see any indication that they are are excluding "key-in" transactions from the promotion. Keep in mind that a "key-in" transaction does not necessarily indicate to Amex that the purchase was not made in-person at the store, and merchants will often key-in a credit card number simply because the swipe didn't work properly.

I'd recommend going to a place that is prepared for it. Like Seasons in KGH on a saturday night is pretty empty except for the SBS-ers, and I walk right up and they just say 'how many you got' and get to work.

 I feel like there are many out there that don't realize that there are plenty of hours after Shabbos where they could do the transactions and potentially rack in some good money.

It's a shame.  I really wanted to swipe at Jwines. So far, no convincing them.

One point to please note, many times if you try running the exact same charge amount through twice the second will fail.  You may need to do a charge for 10, 10.01 and 10.02.
That's what I thought.

Can you use the same card 3 times at a single store or is that something that gets blocked?

So you go to the local grocery store and have a $120 of groceries. You tell the cashier that you want to pay $10 at a time on your card and do this 12 times with 4 different cards. Wow, I'm not sure I can pull that off.
Last year I went to a judaica place in lakewood and they were happy to swipe 11 cards for me 10 each

Best way to avoid it is $10, $10.01, $10.02 they will definitely decline some cards because of duplicate transactions.

I'd recommend going to a place that is prepared for it. Like Seasons in KGH on a saturday night is pretty empty except for the SBS-ers, and I walk right up and they just say 'how many you got' and get to work.
Confirm that they are opening first. I was there tonight and asked about it and he said they may not. Too much trouble opening for a few hours with full staff. Contact owners and ask (beg) if they are opening.

Hello,

To answer your question as far as if they will receive the credit by being key entered, due to the terms and conditions, no they will not receive the credit being manually entered. The card will physically need to be swiped through the terminal at a physical location.  If you have any further questions please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-235-8916, Monday-Friday from 9am-6pm EST.

Have a fantastic day!

Does it have anything to do with this? (Emphasis mine)

Quote
5. If American Express does not receive information that identifies a transaction as having occurred in-store at a
qualifying small business location on Nov 29, 2014, the transaction will not qualify for the statement credit. For example,
your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you will not
receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the
merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader
to process it.

Question for DDF:

If someone was willing to QuickPay or PayPal money to you (instead of store credit) would you swipe by their business? He would obviously take a small percentage. If this seems like it might interest you, then what percentage would you think seems fair to charge?

And is this something he can get in trouble with?

I would think they're just saying no key-ins to discourage "this" sort of practice, but it will likely work fine as in previous years. The reality is that key-ins are not necessarily an indication that the cardholder is not present in the store.

Yes, but they could keep track of how many CCs they enter manually. If they are manually entering 500X more than they usually do then they could be flagged...

Is this part of Dans talk at the Kinus? Maybe he should e-mail all those who signed up for his workshop to bring their amex's and he'll explain it by his workshop at the Kinus.

Potentially yes. You can get an authorized user alert & may be required a. To have income to cover the debt b. Prove you are not responsible c. You may be asked to be removed as an authorized user. Whoever is doing your mortgage can read off the Fannie or Freddie findings & let you know what is required.

Most people swiping in a grocery would either be paying up their bill or getting credit on their account for future shopping. The owner won't be making money off this, that money is owed to him. It's more like a service to his customers.

But a store like Glatt Mart, where there are many other options, will be gaining. I live in Riverdale, and the prices in all the local stores are very high. I only buy sale items. If, however, they were to open SBS and let me get 2-3K of gift cards, I would spend that in their store when otherwise I would only spend a few hundred in a year.

I went to a store in queens and they said that they wont be open on SBS but they can take a list of my cards and they can run them remotely. Does anyone know how that works, does that read like an in store swipe or does it read as an online purchase? Or maybe it depends on the system they are using? Any store owners out there want to chime in on this?
I always email a list of cards and they do it remotely. It's no problem.

Not at that price. So he pays 17.5 cents on his amazon reader per $10 processed and wants $2 for that

For the last 2 years, I've swiped by stores where (a) it would take almost a year until I can actually utilize my credit (b) it would be for things I wouldn't have bought anyways, (c) and the prices were pretty high to begin with.
For ME, this deal sounds sweet.
Some people swipe at a local store where they would be purchasing from anyways, but I don't have that luxury. And I am sure there are others like me who don't too. Just trying to get a feel for what people think. I don't think he'd do it for less than $2 per transaction.

Tzfasman Jewelers in Crown Heights added to wiki...
Didn't ask about accepting lists  when I spoke to him on phone, cos haven't yet done all the reading up about how safe it is to rely on being reimbursed for entering card numbers annually. Did it last year and was fine, but of there is any real risk of not receiving money back for not swiping, I'd rather spend a half hr going there in person.

Will probably be the most lucrative half hr in my career. Even better than a good trip to CVS in the good old days.

Hi, not trying to go off topic, but want to clarify and inquire about the above.
I understand that "kinus" is an annual conference of Chabad shluchim and a concurrent lay-leader conference.
It appears that this year's kinus is happening the week preceding SBS, 11/19-11/24, in Brooklyn.
Is Dan giving a workshop at the kinus? Is it one of his "Dan's Deal's Workshops", or will it be different? More of an overview for beginners?
Does one need to be registered for the kinus to attend this DDW?
If easier, happy for someone to PM me with the info.  Thanks.

That's correct, but you might have misunderstood the question. I understood that the part of sam28's post that you bolded was inquiring whether the three $10 transactions have to be in different stores or if they could even all be in the same store. Someone already answered yes, that the three swipes could be in the same store.

That's correct, but you might have misunderstood the question. I understood that the part of sam28's post that you bolded was inquiring whether the three $10 transactions have to be in different stores or if they could even all be in the same store. Someone already answered yes, that the three swipes could be in the same store.
I read it like that too. I just wanted to make sure he knew the other fact as well (just in case he didn't.)

any grocery stores in lkwd?
Two years ago I emailed foodex a list and it was fine.
Last year I also emailed them a list but right before chatzos I realized that they "forgot". So unreliable.

Kosher west and probably all others will be glad to swipe them for you and you'll have store credit.

Just activate the cards it's no big deal. I did it even without a social.
I called from the phone number they have on file, On some cards the automated system asked for credit card number then said "we see your calling from the number on file" then asked for social, I just hung up and the card was active (confirmed this with a rep)
Other cards they just transfered me to a rep and they activated.
If you call as the primary account holder then you can activate the cards in one call.

It should be fine. They officially say that you can ad an AU and "then" send in SS. They don't say how soon "then" is. I have a few AU's without SS# for over a year, still works.

If you get FR'd you will not be able to get your account working without giving all the SSNs. Even the Users that you do give an SSN for will not be reactivated until you provide the info for all AU's. Closing those AU's will not help.

When repeat charges get declined at self-checkout at the grocery or gas station it's a system limitation, not an AMEX limitation.

MBC ran thousands of cards 3 times each for $5 and I don't recall any mass issue of rejections.

Does a small business have to register with amex for it to be included? I think I remember no,just making sure as I'm trying to arrange some things

It seems that you have to have a merchant account with American Express:

I'm not sure what that entails. Does this disqualify merchants that just use Amazon Local Register/Square/Paypal Here?

Assuming that was not a rhetorical question, I'll try to answer.
Be careful when batch processing 3x transactions of the same amount at the same retailer one after the next. Especially since you'll be doing key ins. Could raise fraud alerts.
Might be worth doing $5 $5.xx....

That's the point to stress with them... I usually go to seasons but I'll also run out to AKF or another place sometimes and I'm sure others are like me - this is a chance for them to lock up a ton of money that may have gone elsewhere.

AKF has no reason to do it, they have such a high percentage of the market that they dont really gain much by doing it.  On the other hand, for Seasons it definitely pays.

A couple years ago, I looked at the map and half the store in my local mall were on it,
Including baby stores that sold stroller, check the map.

This was for the Aventura mall area. Most of the stores there, happily swiped my cards two or three times (Back when it was $25 a swipe).

I also don't recall pr in the past.

What city will you be in..
A couple years ago, I looked at the map and half the store in my local mall were on it,
Including baby stores that sold stroller, check the map.

This was for the Aventura mall area. Most of the stores there, happily swiped my cards two or three times (Back when it was $25 a swipe).

The problem is stores closing early Sat night.

Yes- they think it's only 4 or 5 of us with stacks of cards. But the more or us who tell them about how much they would spend and how they would normally go elsewhere if not for SBS then maybe they'll reconsider. I told them more people are aware of it this year compared to past years because of the seminars and more people learning about this stuff.

That's s different concern one issue is if you have several charges for the same amount you'll get a fraud alert on your account and will have to clear it to use your card again. The other issue is that sometimes if you have multiple charges at the same store on the same day they get lumped together, there have been reports of this happening when people use the Everyday card at self checkout lanes

Last year I bought like 500 worth. Especially smart in area with limited to no other kosher options that will be open. I told him last year they only had like 50 and they ran out, and he said they are prepping and will have plenty of gift cards.

It only counts as spend until the credit posts.  So if you hit the threshold before the credit posts, then it helps.  but if the credit posts and you still havent hit the threshold it wont count as spend.

IME That only applies for actual returns. Promotional credit, platinum airline credit, platinum global entry credit, extended warranty/return/loss protection all do NOT count against the spend.  If you spend 3K and do 1K of purchase protection you still get the 3K spend bonus.

I have no experience with purchase protection so I cant comment.  But I do have experience with platinum airline credit and it has only counted toward the threshold as long as the threshold was reached prior to the bonus being granted.

When you did the plat spend did you also return something? Perhaps you did pggm? It's that return credit which would offset spend. If not then you should call or message them because that makes no sense. A statement credit or bonus or goodwill shouldn't offset your spend.

last year "I asked" for denominations of 20's and I got them.
I don't like doing too much higher since once you start redeeming a card in a store, you need to finish it there (with future store credit).

It just has one input box, so it's simply copy alt tab paste enter then go back then alt tab and copy again. It def is easier with a script, but should only take like 1-15 sec per card.

If you set up your CC as backup, you only need to add money to the subaccounts. For the main account it will load from the CC. That has a $2500 limit separate from the regular CC loading limit.

nope. it's through the amex sbs website

I'm pretty sure I saw there will be a way to register via Twitter (like other promotions, I don't remember offhand though what the # will be) so if you are all set up via tweetdeck it'll be very quick to register many cards.

If you're not tech savvy enough for scripting, you can drag and drop from Word or Excel instead of copy and paste.

I think that's the error you get if you double click the I Agree, Submit button (i.e., you try to register the same card twice). Before trying again, check to see if you got an e-mail confirming the enrollment.

yes. Serve only the first 6 digits are the same. The rest of my amex cards all AUs have same number as primary except for the last 2 digits though that might depend on how many AUs you have. Dont know abt bb but i would guess its like serve.

Anyway to autofill some of the form?
The only way to make it go slightly quicker that I found was to copy the email address and paste it, which only works for the first box.

Did anyone use a random name generator (http://random-name-generator.info/) for additional cards? I'm thinking of doing that and just using my last name for each one :)

I still have more possible AUs, can I just keep adding until I reach 99 without expecting any issues?
What is the easiest way to add users? On the phone took a while and in a chat window on their website was even more difficult!

If it's already registered, you're good to go. The email may have been lost or delayed, or could have been filtered into your spam folder. Alternatively, you could have mistyped your email address, in which case you will not receive an email confirming when you make an eligible purchase.

Hello. First time doing the SBS regimen and I've been doing some research, but I'd appreciate some clarification so my first time could be successful.
1. I've heard of many maxing out their free AU potentials on all AMEX products to the point where 10 for each primary account was said to be safe amount per account. In some cases, many have used their same name on AU cards stating that they'd like to separate transactions per card. Is this safe? Haha
2. If I were to get so many, will some or all have different 15 digit numbers or all the same as primary or both?
3. Would I have to register every single card individually or once a primary card is registered all are? Is there an easy way to register in bulk?
4. I have friends and family who own small businesses. Can I have them sign up as participants? If so, how? It'd be easy to get them to swipe multiples.
5. Anything else I should consider or know that's important to make this work out?

Thanks.

I do get the Twitter notification thanking me for enrollment, but no email. All my previous cards would get the twitter notification AND the email. It's not in the SPAM folder either. Am I guaranteed to get the statement credit for these purchases?

That must be a setting in Safari, because it didn't work for me when I tried Safari. Anyway LastPass works much faster than that. But it was still faster in past years when I was able to just hit "back" in the browser and change the last 2-3 digits for each subsequent AU.

This is my experience with serve AU
I have multiple AU from multiple siblings. I had to create a new serve account for each subaccount. The serve account username is the one you used when signining up the authorized user. I called serve, they emailed me a link and then they activiated the card.
I tried signing up my serve card for SBS prior to the above and I would get the following message, "Due to some technical problem page can not be displayed."
However, after activiating the AU serve cards, I was able to successfully register them for SBS.

To register all my cards I used firefox with Autofill forms 1.0.2 add on. I put in my information into the add on and then on the SBS page I hit alt+j

"Great Kosher Restaurants Magazine is selling already discounted restaurant certificates from all over the country for SBS. We're on the map and we're going to post a secure link where you will be able to "pre-order" certificates and we'll process them offline on Saturday night. So not only will you save $30 a card but you'll be making money from our certificates. You can go to www.GreatKosherDeals.com to see the list of what we have so far. And no extra fees. So stay tuned. Thanks."

FYI, for those who have ordered  AU's that haven't arrived yet, you can still register the cards for SBS. Log into your account, select the primary account and go to Profile > Card Management. There should be a link there that says Replacement Card Status. There you'll see the last 5 digits of any AU's you've ordered. The first 10 digits are the same as the primary card on the account. Now that you have the full cc number of the AU, you can just register it for SBS as usual.

Eden Wok in New Rochelle last year only would let me buy 4 gift cards. Guy said the same this year, although he did try to make it out that it is Amex limiting it. I called him out and he said they won't do more than a few GC sales.
Although to be fair, I only go there for the buffet night and do sushi take out and easily pack $40 worth of sushiinto the take out container for the $20 they charge.

In English, if you swipe at any store that meets the T&C (not government, no more than 10? branches, etc.) and accepts AMEX (can't comment on square etc.) then you will get the credit.

If you look at the details of the transaction, it says "Doing business as: Square" - Which indicates it wouldn't work.
Im not so sure. How do we find out this answer.
D93, this is a reason why I haven't responded to your PMs. I wanted to be sure before answering you.

I guess the best thing to do is have my family and friends with SBs call amex to confirm with CSR and jot down a reference number, name and ID of CSR for buyers to complain if no credit is received assuming that said SBs are confirmed participants.

I'm not sure that he's allowed to do that. CMIIAW, but I think that violates the Amex t&c, and he can lose all rights to process amex cards (if not more?) if they find out. (unless he makes that his policy  for other banks, in which case it might be OK).

For $50 she will give you your own card reader, and will be connected to her account (you need internet connection - phone is fine). You can swipe away at home.

Yes if you got a few guys together and want to swipe a couple hundred cards or more its worth it for them and probably for you with a hassle as well

Interesting. I just called Amex and ordered five cards they said its pending. Anybody know what that means? They say that they will get back to me with 7 to 10 business days that's too long what should I do?

Was thinking along the same lines... This is her business; If she wants the money, she should decide if it's worth her investment - But to ask the customer to pay to be her customer sounds ludicrous...

There are more then enough places to take my business to, The Gift Card Registry is the simplest for me... but I ain't gonna pay for it!

 - besides for the fact that other places are accepting lists, so that I don't even have to wait on line, drive anywhere, or worry about it...

If I can swipe from my home without waiting in lines or anything, I may pay for it.
In fact of anyone wants to take my cards and swipe them for me, I may pay you as well. ;)

So, a little birdie told me that I finally got some love from DD, thanks guys.  Can't believe it's been 2 year since the last time we discussed all this.  Yeah, 2 years ago was nuts!  Took me 24 hours to punch in about 600 card numbers.  It was great business, but it probably took a few days off my life with all the stuff I had to go through that night and then making sure everyone got their money from AMEX. I promised myself I would never do that again, and sadly I didn't get the opportunity last year b/c AMEX changed the requirements of their promotion.  But we're back this year, on the SBS map and yes, I have probably invested close to $1000 on this system which allows you, from the comfort of your home, to enter each card just 1 time and as many cards as you want and the system will evenly distribute the $10 increments over the full purchase.  In the end, it's easier for you and me.  And of course, you're already buying discount restaurant certificates, so you're practically making money.  For those that are interested, here is the link to "pre-order" certificates or future credit - www.GreatKosherDeals.com/sbs

And also, here is the list of certificates we have in an easy to see pdf form - www.gkrm.net/deals

And btw, we are donating a portion of our SBS proceeds to the victim's families of yesterday's terror attack. I just wouldn't feel right to do this promotion without giving something back.

I spoke to them you basically have to pick it up from their processing guy and it costs him a few to set it up on every device. If they do it for free everyone will take one and decide then if their doing it. So now he's charging a little bit and if you're serious about it and doing a lot of cards it'll be a drop in the bucket.

True. But I just realized that if it's a "Gift Card Registry" then it's the customers that will all be getting back their own gift cards... so, it's like a "self-serve swiper" but they'll make $100 an hour per machine if they charge $50 per register for 30 min.

Re: www.GreatKosherDeals.com/sbs it's working for me and and most people, but it is down for others. Unfortunately, we picked last night to move hosts and it's taking time to propagate the whole Internet. At least, that's what my developer says. But many people have been ordering so it's definitely working for most. I may have jumped the gun on launching it a tad early but I've been waiting for this for a while. Anyway, be patient, and there is still a week to order. Regarding the questions. You can pre-order certificates right now or buy future credit or a combination. If you use 2 cards, you essentially have $60 to spend on the site. You can use it anyway you want. If you buy credit, you need to use that credit within 6 of our site.

There are more then enough places to take my business to, The Gift Card Registry is the simplest for me... but I ain't gonna pay for it!

 - besides for the fact that other places are accepting lists, so that I don't even have to wait on line, drive anywhere, or worry about it...

AHA CHUTZPAH!!!!!

 They are generating ALOT of business for themselves and now want to charge to be a customer??

On the other hand, if she is merely offering it and not demanding it, then it makes sense. Feel free to stand in line with everyone else.

If you use 2 cards, you essentially have $60 to spend on the site. You can use it anyway you want. If you buy credit, you need to use that credit within 6 of our site.

Can you clarify that line?

I dont see it that way
they have to pay to rent another terminal if you want one not to wait in line then pay. i may be worth it.

ever went to an amusement park where you pay to cut the line.

think about how many transaction you plan on doing and then imagine waiting for 5 people in front of you to do the same.

I spoke to them you basically have to pick it up from their processing guy and it costs him a few to set it up on every device. If they do it for free everyone will take one and decide then if their doing it. So now he's charging a little bit and if you're serious about it and doing a lot of cards it'll be a drop in the bucket.

Alternatively they could say they give it out free if you have at least, say, 20 cards.

True. But I just realized that if it's a "Gift Card Registry" then it's the customers that will all be getting back their own gift cards... so, it's like a "self-serve swiper" but they'll make $100 an hour per machine if they charge $50 per register for 30 min.
you get it before shabbos and its yours for the night.
ITS OPTIONAL

And to answer your question, she's merely offering this.
She's trying to be accommodating. She already renting 20 or more iPads and card readers. Plus workers. Also making appointments and taking walkins.. She reached her limit and tons of people are still calling, so she offered this service for those that are interested.

AmEx knows it, but you won't be able to get them to tell it to you. Merchants that charged your card previously may have it if they violate the rules by keeping it, but they will not admit that to you by providing you with the info. You may have it if you wrote it down. I suggest either of the following:

I don't think she makes that much from the cards, prob less than 10% based on what I've heard (take off CC processing fees as well). She is already providing over 20 terminals, Each terminal cost $ and shes paying workers to man them.  This is a service. For somebody with a lot of cards that's making several thousand dollars it may well be worthwhile. If its not worth $50 for you to swipe in  the comfort of your home, your welcome to go to the store. She also told me her processor told her not to take lists. Why whine about a convenient  offer.

So, a little birdie told me that I finally got some love from DD, thanks guys.  Can't believe it's been 2 year since the last time we discussed all this.  Yeah, 2 years ago was nuts!  Took me 24 hours to punch in about 600 card numbers.  It was great business, but it probably took a few days off my life with all the stuff I had to go through that night and then making sure everyone got their money from AMEX. I promised myself I would never do that again, and sadly I didn't get the opportunity last year b/c AMEX changed the requirements of their promotion.  But we're back this year, on the SBS map and yes, I have probably invested close to $1000 on this system which allows you, from the comfort of your home, to enter each card just 1 time and as many cards as you want and the system will evenly distribute the $10 increments over the full purchase.  In the end, it's easier for you and me.  And of course, you're already buying discount restaurant certificates, so you're practically making money.  For those that are interested, here is the link to "pre-order" certificates or future credit - www.GreatKosherDeals.com/sbs

Re: www.GreatKosherDeals.com/sbs it's working for me and and most people, but it is down for others. Unfortunately, we picked last night to move hosts and it's taking time to propagate the whole Internet. At least, that's what my developer says. But many people have been ordering so it's definitely working for most. I may have jumped the gun on launching it a tad early but I've been waiting for this for a while. Anyway, be patient, and there is still a week to order. Regarding the questions. You can pre-order certificates right now or buy future credit or a combination. If you use 2 cards, you essentially have $60 to spend on the site. You can use it anyway you want. If you buy credit, you need to use that credit within 6 of our site. To prepare what you want, the best is to look at our pdf certificate list at www.gkrm.net/deals
Just placed a order with 11 cards.

Very easy and simple to use website much better then standing in line.

Thank you.

Is the only way to add users to call or is there a way online?
You could do it from your account online. SS# needed
left side of home page there's an option to "Add others to your account" or "add cards for employees" or choose more options on the left side then choose one of the 2 i just mentioned.

I would think that amount of cards has been signed up for from the ddf community alone.

This was posted by Dan on the main site:

"Q: How can AMEX afford to do this?
A: Even if 500,000 cards participate and maximize the promo, it only costs $15 million.  That’s a tiny drop in the bucket for a company worth $100 billion and SBS creates tons of positive PR for the company.  Additionally there are other corporate sponsors of SBS."

+1, but if you're nervous:
FYI, for those who have ordered  AU's that haven't arrived yet, you can still register the cards for SBS. Log into your account, select the primary account and go to Profile > Card Management. There should be a link there that says Replacement Card Status. There you'll see the last 5 digits of any AU's you've ordered. The first 10 digits are the same as the primary card on the account. Now that you have the full cc number of the AU, you can just register it for SBS as usual.

Should I place my order now or can I just by credit and expect the inventory to be similar in 30-60 days to what it is now ?

Just so everyone should know, the Gift Registry Gift Cards from what I remember, expire after 1 year. They can be reinstated if you go down to them and pay a few dollars (I think $2 per card.) which gives you another year. (And another $2 each time it's expired and you then get another year)

Probably means minimum $10 to qualify for the credit. If someone wants to buy something for $50 they're allowed to. I just went through their whole site, Didnt see anything about only 1 swipe per store.

Gift Card Registry pays swipe fees. But they pay the stores less than the face value of the card, and the difference is their profit. Regardless, NPGS does not accept gift card registry. Personally, I'd rather put my SBS $ towards groceries that I'm anyway buying than on gift cards to other stores. I can always take the money I would have spent on groceries and spend it elsewhere, with  no gift card restrictions. Putting the money on my grocery bill is as close as I'm going to get to putting it directly back into my pocket.

Search for gift card registry in this thread. I don't live in lkwd, but that might be what your taking about

I just spoke to kosher taco in lakewood,they are offering a free side dish again this year & he said its per swipe not cc.
meaning one card nets $30 + 3 sides...seems a bit too good to be true,gonna huca tomorrow.
If so that would make it a better deal than getting 30% off kosher taco gc's at greatkosherdeals imho.

I just confirmed this with the owner, it is correct.

Will you sell out of the rest over SBS ?
Should I place my order now or can I just by credit and expect the inventory to be similar in 30-60 days to what it is now ?
No, we will not sell out but we will be low on some things. We've been doing this for 10 years and it's a cycle. We keep adding certificates from many places as we sell out from others but we usually have 100 or so discounted restaurant certificates at a time. I think we were nice enough to extend a credit for 6 months in order for people not to be forced into buying something now. But the reason we are asking people to redeem their credit within 6 months is because I don't want over the next year or two, people calling up and saying I'd like to use $10 credit this week and then $20 credit next month. It becomes a billing nightmare and we're not a bank where we want to hold people's credit. Besides, you don't have to use the certificate within 6 months, we just ask that you pick out your certificates within that period and then you can go whenever you want. And while there is no expiration date on it, we also ask that you don't wait a year or two to use it. It's not fair to the restaurant and if you can't go to a restaurant within 6 months to a year, then I'm surprised you're getting certificates.
Wow, this GKD page almost makes me wish I lived intown (almost, but not really).  This is a great way to maximize SBS, wish they offered more places out of town...

I understand where you are coming from. We don;t go out too often, so I think I will just hit up my local C&G for gift cards since those don't expire.

Bold or cash? I'm such a novice.
I have no experience with cash, but the bold is a charge card and serve has a pending status as cash advance or the like, so it needs a cash advance line. At the end it shows as regular purchase, but the bold has no cash advance line so it keeps getting rejected. The plus is a  standard credit card, so it works

I visited some shops around town tonight to discuss how I could use my cards and I was disappointed that one of the places on the SBS map I really hoped to target doesn't even accept AMEX.  There's another place that I know is cash only.  I'm losing faith in the map.

I'm not expecting trouble on Nov. 29 since I'm making a point of talking with managers beforehand, but I'm starting to think it might also be a good idea to take screenshots of the map showing the stores I'm hitting.  The last 4 SBSs have been problem-free, but this is the first time I'm going in with so many cards.

On the outside chance that something goes awry and credit isn't given for a purchase at a store shown on the map.  I realize that doesn't apply to my example of the store that doesn't even take AMEX - just saying that my confidence in the map as a planning tool, and thus the system behind SBS as a whole, has dropped a bit.  In practice, I doubt I'll do anything of the sort because I've never had trouble in the past.  SBS has been such a great promo for us, and thanks to Dan's tips, this year is looking to be exponentially better than anything in the past.  :)

Calling didn't get me any info. Only that I can only swipe once per business.  ::)
Why not call the store ?

On the FAQ page it states that only a swipe will be eligible, or a keyed entry of the card number at the store but not online purchases. However, I do not know too many stores around me who will patiently key in 5 cc numbers 3 times each for transactions of $10...

I want to know though if I can apply online, and still get the card overnighted, or is that exclusively via applying online?

But there's a way online to see the last 5 digits & once you have the primary card you could register all AU's, correct ?

I do not have any Amex cards. I still want to take advantage of SBS. Dan posted on the FAQ page that you can ask Amex when applying for the cards, for them to overnight it for you. I assume that's over the phone (correct me if I am wrong). I want to know though, if I can apply first online (still allowing for 3BM) and then call to ask for it to be overnighted, thus receiving the cards on-time for SBS?

Having the card numbers will not suffice simply because I cannot imagine any store clerk keying in cc numbers 15 times next motzei shabbos...

If you want the 3bm do it online. Call up to expedite them & add AU's on the phone also to be expedited. I think that should work.CMIIW

Does anyone have a list of stores in Los Angeles that takes lists. I've been searching through the forum and nothing seemed to come up.

I went into Shiloh's in LA on Motzei Shabbos of SBS with 6 cards and 2 Amex numbers on a paper. Is that what you are referring to by "takes lists"? Or are you asking about papers in advance?

You called recon because you were initially denied, or just to expedite?

taking lists means in advance, numbers on a paper is keyed in.

I meant what TimT said - Giving in the list before Shabbos and having them key it in on Saturday night.

Either way does anyone know which LA stores are doing that. There are none posted on the first page of this thread.

Best is to call a few stores that you would go to & ask if they're participating.

They were very open about it at the time -- I went in person; that was 2-3 years ago, maybe they'll go for it for SBS. Give them a call: http://shilosrestaurant.com

Yes. Just call them right away.

Some interesting things happened:

I Applied online for Starwood Preferred Guest and Amex Everyday Card (using 2BM), with 3 AU's for each (complete with DOB and SSN's).

I got approved instantly for the Starwood Preferred Guest. For the Amex Everyday Card it told me to call them. I called straight away, and the rep told me that because I applied for both cards at the same time, the first one went through, but then the second one was screened for security and they will notify me of a decision in 5 business days.

I then asked the rep if the Starwood Preferred Guest cards could be expedited, and I was told unequivocally no, as once an app is approved, it is frozen and they cannot edit it or add notes for shipping or whatever else.
