Close a bb,  and open another redcard
Or just get another redcard!  I could find another SS# out there.   :P  So, I guess you're implying that they do liquidate in RC.  I'll be back in town on the 3rd, so I'll do it then.  Thanks.

Has anybody been able to load the Staples Rebate Visa Cards on Redbird or Bluebird?  I have yet to try, and I maxed out my RBs for this month, while I don't think it would work on BB since you need a pin code.  I have over $650 in rebate cards that I need to unload.  What's everyone's strategy to liquidate these?  With the regular Staples GCs, I just buy the penny reams of paper and max out the rebates for 8 households.  I then sell each ream for $3.50 to local businesses.  Rinse and repeat.

I'm wondering why nobody in CA and AZ capitalized on this.  Though most of the participating restaurants are non-kosher, you could always donate the food or sell the credits/gift cards/certs to others depending on the stores.  I've taken out clients for lunch and dinner for the tax writeoffs as well.  Since it started on 12/19/14 (which it goes on every third week of the month, so about 35 effective promo days), I've amassed almost $12k in food/gift cards/certs.  I don't have to spend money on eating out for years haha.  And, I've sold many gcs as well.

did you check the andaz for availability, supposedly it's just as good
Find another location where you can you won't need to pay so much.
So I take it that it's not worth it?

No,  don't go to the store. Only work with the driver,  unless you want the deal killed
Probably not, but your driver should know.

What deal? Am I missing something?

How would the cashier know whether you did debit or credit? When it asks for a pin, just hit cancel and swipe as credit and don't say anything.
She told me that it was on the screen that I need to show ID. I believe that it was because I did debit first and because the machine wasn't taking it after many tries, I asked to do credit instead. May have put her guard up then. Oh well, I have 3+ Targets close by.

Go to another target and run as credit
I will. Just wanted to know though if US Banks are out now and to just stick to Metabanks just in case. Thanks.

How far you drove for this?
what do you mean? I'm in CA. There's no competition here. Fair game. And there's at least 4 Walmart's, Targets, Staples, etc within a 5 mile radius.

PHNY does not have standard rooms left for points nor P&C, so best they could do was $400 and 30k HGP for a Park Suite or $600 and 30k HGP for west side Suite (supposedly better) or Junior Suite for $875 and 6k. I chose the first. We will be in NYC 5/6-5/7 evening for less than 2 full days and staying at PHNY for one night only; before our JFK-MXP flight. Should I just look elsewhere or is it worth keeping? Thoughts on alts? I'm a Plat btw.

Anybody having issues with US bank GCs being denied.  I keep getting "invalid pin code."  I also changed the pin numbers already, but still no go.  I tried to do it as a credit card, but the rep wouldn't allow unless it matched my ID.  With my cousin's name on the RB and no name on the GC, I had no choice but to say thank you and leave. haha  Anybody else having issues?

Regarding IB, what does one do for points after maxing out the $50k spend at oss?  Is there any other efficient use for it?  Should I play with another card?  lol

This is a multi-question with quotes from wiki:

"You can make up the SS#, DOB, and phone number, but you can only activate 1 Redcard per SS# per day). At this point, you can load up to $500 on the card."
*** When making up SS#, DOB, and p#, does this apply only for when you purchase the temp card, or can this also apply to the permanent one when registering?  How many RB can one SS# have as it says "1 RB per SS# per day?"  Just making sure I'm reading this right.  Also, I purchased (from a fellow DDFer) 2 temp cards w/ $1 loaded on each.  Does this mean that I could load each one online/in-store up to $499 before registering for a permanent card?  Keep in mind that I only received pictures of the temp cards and not the physical version.  May be hard for me to get them loaded by having them key in the temp card info. haha

"2) After you register the card at home- You can load another $1000, which does count towards your monthly $5000 limit."
***Does this statement mean that you could load online the $1000?

Thanks all!  Late in the game.   :P
