I was successfully able to load 5 GC to my BB at a Walmart ATM this past Monday.  Google for moneypass ATM locations at Walmart and do that from now on.

What's the benefit of doing The GC/Walmart method instead of The VR method?

Seems like all your questions were answered pretty quickly. Don't see any reason for you to complain.

No no, everyone is great! But why waste everyone's time... (if there was somehow a faster way to view FAQs and if experiences were  summed up somehow, I/others could avoid repeat Qs)

Correct. I was making 2 points for the n00b
1) He doesn't only save them,  he also uses them.
2) he used them for trips,  as opposed to hopping from lounge to lounge.

Right, but if there are so many unused points, is it just for the fun? (which yes, it is fun/addicting)

OK OK I'll read the trip posts. Sorry for going OT. The lifetime United Club got me.

Oh and the lounge-hopping was obv a joke. :)

Not that I remember, but it did cause me to catch when my trial of Amazon Student ended and they started charging. I had totally forgotten about it since for some reason it never worked, but when I saw the charge I called and canceled it and got a prorated refund.

Gotcha. I prefer to browse it quickly online and now im using Mint to help track my charges.

I find it much easier to check the statement against my receipts when I have a paper statement.

Okay. Side point - have you found ever that your statement was wrong and you were charged for something you didn't buy? Honestly curious.

Rumor has it Dan that you don't sell your miles (maybe that's even well-known and I'm just too noob to know), so what do you do with all the points?? lol Just go to a United lounge for breakfast and then fly to another lounge for dinner?

Yah, why dont you go ahead and read every single post and report back.

lfas was clearly being sarcastic, and I was joining in on the fun. I think that the forum-style of conversation is great in some ways, but terrible in others. (like finding info about a specific question if it's not listed in the wiki)

I guess you didn't read all 5765 posts on this thread first...

Try shifting some CL before closing. don't ask the reconsideration rep to do it ??? just call CUS first then call back recon that your willing to take their offer and close the card.

Why the ???

Wait a second, why is anyone getting paper statements? The world is leaving paper behind, the tree huggers are enthusiastic and DDF'rs are still getting paper statements???

They locked me out for uploading money to my BB account online from a gift card.  VR to BB is not a problem.

Oh. (phew) Yes, that stinks. Sorry you were the guinea pig, but thanks for sharing with everyone. Glad VR is still an option.

Yes, they do not allow you to load $ from a prepaid card online.  If you do they will catch on within a few days and close you down.  If you have already done so and they lock you out, play dumb and apologize and say you didn't know and the customer rep should restore your functionality.  In future only load GC onto BB at Walmart ATM.

I was able to load VR onto BB right after midnight today.

Sorry, just to clear the confusion. Are you saying that you were caught and shut down for uploading GCs online or VR online?

I called.  They locked the account because of the prepaid card.  Warning to everyone out there.  Do NOT upload funds from a prepaid card to BB online.  They WILL shut you down.  I played dumb and said I didn't know and apologized and they customer rep has removed the lock.

B/c you uploaded via prepaid?? All of a sudden that's an issue?

Side problem is that with new UI it seems that no one's been able to upload a VR to BB successfully yet.

Hopefully I will be able to resolve it without them shutting me down.
Good Luck!

Thanks very much for the info. The rep told me about the new 30-day cycle but I'm concerned that if I wait the full 30 days they'll have to re-pull my credit report. Gonna try HUCA'ing and SM first and if all else fails, will then call back in 30 days. Thanks again.

If it's within the 30 days of the recon, I don't think they'd be pulling a new report. They look back at the data from the credit report that was pulled from the original application.
