you can load it onto a AFT (Amex for Target) and cash out at an ATM-verified.
Based on this, i would think that you can can transfer it from one red card to another, but i have never tested that.

This is interesting. I'll try in the next few days and report back. Thanks.

IME, unregistered card cannot be unloaded at ATM.
So when they mentioned the word ATM up thread  that didn't answer this question?

Yes, IME, as well, can't use ATM with an unregistered temp card.  (A registered temp card works fine to unload, though.)

I don't think this question has been answered in the wiki or upthread:

Is there any way, other than Target spending (purchases) to unload a temporary RedBird prepaid card?

In my unbridled enthusiasm, I purchased an extra temp card and loaded it with $500 but now don't think I have a real person's identity to convert it to a permanent card.

my  miles posted about 4 days after my not test drive.
Manager at the dealer was very nice about it. Didn't even ask if I really wanted to test drive it.
Said that Cadillac benefits just by getting into me into the showroom. Because you never know, some day down the line.... yeah right.

Booked the following for a summer trip for me an wife:

In economy, with United miles, flying on LH.
Each transatlantic leg was 30,000 miles, so 120,000 miles total, plus $139pp taxes/fees.

This is my first "big" use of points/miles.  Wondering if I should have waited to try to get better value. I spent some time exploring Aer Lingus and others, but no availability.

I wouldn't mind hearing how the experts think I did.

It's the following weekend. btw, registration is still quite open for the kinus:)
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.

Next week's offers not likely to help many DDFers.

Lost in was a genuine thank you, not saying anything wrong with the deal for those who can use it, just thanks for not posting a link for those who the deal does not apply to that may press the link accidentally (or not) anyway
Ok, I apologize. I jumped to conclusion.  Thank you.

People click the link without realizing what they're clicking.
Ah, okay, so I guess I did the right thing not posting the link.
Sorry I misunderstood. I shouldn't have been on the defensive.

Well, I wasn't going to get into it, but as long as we're on the subject:
My understanding is that what a woman wears in the presence of her husband alone is not restricted by principles of tznius.
Of course, VS sells lots of stuff that's trashy and if worn in public would violate all sorts of tznius, but for a husband and wife in their bedroom, I don't see the problem.

Thank you for not posting a link.
Sorry, was trying to rush to get it posted before it expired. 
Unless that was sarcasm, in which case, really it's not necessary. I was just trying to help.

I got a credit of $20. Actually took some time, several chats, phone and waiting on hold.  Not sure it was worth it, but I guess it's free money.

SHIPANY gets you free shipping
ITEM25 gets you 25% off

Expires at 11PM.
Works on clearance items, at least the ones I bought.


Have an physch assesement to determine the present value of the long term damages, and request that amt + 8% for taxes.
so maybe $1.08?

I bought one of the wheelchairs.  Amazon sent me an email saying they cancelled the order.  What can I ask Amazon to provide to compensate me for my tremendous disappointment? What is reasonable? $100 credit?

Just signed up.
Got an email that was ambiguous as to whether I should call to schedule or wait for them to contact me to schedule.
So, I called program headquarters, and they checked and ascertained that my local dealership was no longer scheduling for date night. They would put me on a "priority list" for next year when they run this promotion again (I feel so special  ::)).

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Frankfurt Master Thread

Wife and I will have 6-hour layover in FRA in August.
Flying LH but in Economy ( :-[), so I guess we can't access the LH FCT (or FCL).
1. We have Lounge Club passes. Is the LuxxLounge (Terminal 1) decent (one poster said it was not).
2. Should we venture out of the airport and, if so, ...
  a. Do the 3-hour Porsche rental or
  b. Get the driver to take us for a tour or
  c. Take the public transportation into and out of the City?
3. Are there any reliable kosher options in Frankfurt at this point? (I have read the news about Rabbi Klein).

Thanks in advance.

do you need any id or anything to activate it in store?
will they give me any problems
In Massachusetts, they asked for my driver's license, the bar-code of which they scanned, and my personal information popped up on the screen of the keypad entry box.  (and I'm sure it's now in their database waiting for another data breach....)
