i'm wondering the same thing... I need to spend $1000 for my gold card...


Do not do it. It is not worth it.  I got fr'd for doing it and then it was just one big hassle. (Btw I talking about doing it with amex)

Only stay away using Amex, as many have been fr'ed (R"L) as a result. I've used chase cards all the time without any issues.

How much do you typically buy on the Chase card each time, and per month?

I specifically noted that it shouldn't be done to meet AMEX spending thresholds.  I've done with many other cards ( ge money, discover, etc) dozens of times and bh never had a problem.

Thanx mshor for noting this.

I didn't mainly do it for the miles. The situation was as follows. I had a relatively high debt to credit utilization(close to 50%). A lot of it was on my Chase freedom card. Being that the United Mileage Plus card didn't have an official credit line, rather a credit access line(which doesn't post as "revolving credit" on the credit report), I used it to purchase coins and pay completely off the freedom card and other cards.

I did it almost every 10 days for a few months. Doing a balance transfer would have hurt my credit(hey, I got miles as well).

Your bank didn't get sick of it and stop accepting them?

I used the same teller almost every time. She got used to it.

I see there is a delay in shipping the coins

2 questions

1)are the 10 days from order or from shippment

2)could I get them to charge it right away or will I have to wait for when they ship

Go to http://www.fulltiltpoker.com sign up, and deposit there with your credit card (visa/mastercard only).

I'd try first with a smaller amount, such as $50-$100, then you should be able to request a cashout to your bank account (wire transfer).

If this goes smoothly, then you just increase the amounts.

[try not to get bonus money, and if you do, never request a cashout for it]

I've done plenty of times with other casinos online, but 99.99% (of the honest ones) don't accept Us-players any longer, but this one does.

I did it usually with some 3500 euro (2 deposits), and than cashout (in 3 times), and about 10 days later the money is on my account.
has anyone done this recently? are there any complications or fees?

it says this on their website
The immediate bank deposit of $1 coins ordered through this program does not result in their introduction into circulation and, therefore, does not comply with the intended purpose of the program.
does it mean anything?

You can lose quite a bit if the exchange rate fluctuates (during those 10 days) to your disadvantage.

Don't believe everything you read.

When someone clicks on 'I agree',  they've just agreed not to immediately redeposit the coins. If the mint, or other branch of the gov. decides to go after someone, this will be another 'transgression' they can hold against them.
