Credit Cards / Re: Discover Cash Back Checking Account

Discover recently sent me this fine print:
(ii) Debit card purchases that are not eligible for 1% Checking Cashback Bonus rewards include:
(b) The purchase of money orders or other cash-equivalents*

Do supermarkets that sell MOs take Discover Debit? If so, does Discover actually get enough information about the transaction to know it is not eligible?

Here's a link to view what it is, but the deal is in store only.

Promo code is in the Fry's Deals of the Day email sent out today. I am not posting mine because I think it may be unique.

Was just billed AF on my chase ink plus. I rarely use this card. Any reason for me to hold on to it?
You'll have the ability to redeem your UR points by transferring them directly to hotel or airline loyalty programs. You can earn 5 points per dollar at office supply stores.

They work as self-checkout
It worked for me at self checkout, but I used each one for a separate transaction. It was a little disconcerting when it was first scanned and subtracted $0, but then at the next step the full discount came off.

In my area the offer is buy $100 in gift cards get a $15 coupon off your next order

Reminder: coupons expire today. Any data points if the coupons work at self checkout? It says on them that they don't. The coupons all have the same barcode. Can more than one coupon be applied to a single purchase?

IME when you plug it in and try to connect to the internet you should get an installation screen where you could do it yourself, no need to call.
I had to manually go to but once I figured that out, I was up and running in less than 5 minutes. I can't believe I spent $150 in modem fees so far when I had this modem all along.
It's a good thing I did this now. I just noticed they doubled my modem fee this month.

I switched out my modem, but haven't yet sent back the Optimum one. ever since then (2-3 months), they haven't been charging me the $5 modem fee.

are they gonna slap me soon with an equipment fee for the price of their modem?
I have been paying the modem fee for years even though I have a DOCSIS 3.0 modem of my own sitting unused. I never connected it because their website only listed a few specific compatible models. I just saw your posts now. Can this still be done? Did you return the borrowed one or get charged a fee?

Definitely worth it , 50% on your money. ..

Worst case you call Amex and show proof of order placed before the deadline
Do they get an authorization right away when you submit the order? If so, you can also print / screen shot the pending transaction.

I see now Lowe's and Exxon, didn't have them before.
Me too.

If only it were that simple... ::)
Have cashiers declined to sell you cards or have the cards you wanted been out of stock or are 100 cards too many for you to use?
