Topic Wiki

Ill spell it out for the feeble.
You dont call up and ask if they take Visa gift cards for  a money order.
You dont call up and ask if they take Mastercard gc for a MO
You dont flippin call!


You go into a store and ask for an MO and she says ok its, XXX.XX say no p, take out your debit card and swipe. If the rep says no debits then apologize and leave. If she says lemme see that is that a gc say NO ITS A DEBIT. if she asks wheres your name you say (among many other options to think of) the permanent one is on the way and im using the temp one until i receive it. If you need to swipe more than once, its ok to have multiple debits (for those who are lacking in common sense). But be nonchalant dont be in your face about it to the rep. Reps want to feel they're in charge, its natural for a minimum paid employees...




I think this should give the basics on how to get a MO if you find a place.... this is not rocket science. But it seems like it is to some.... Where to cash out GCs for MO:

Where                                       Which gift card                                   Fee                                     max MO amount                                   

Service desk @ Wal-Mart                  MVD,  Visa from Meta bank,                                  70 cents                                           $1000
                                                  chase (phased out)                                                                                      $1000   
                                                     
Rite Aid                                                                                                 $0.89                                          $500
       
"HaNesher HaGadol"                            One Vanilla                                 .52                                          $500 max     
meijer-69 cents up to $1000-most stores
NOTES:
MVD charges 50 cents per transaction so ask for MO of card amount- (fee+ 50 cents) eg @WM ask for 498.80 on MO (or cover $1.20 some other way)

Are there any places in Lakewood that accept gc for MO (small scale to meet minimum spend) now that the PO is no longer an option?

There are places around Lakewood and there are options nationwide. Keep your eyes open and look around and you may find them. Please do not pm.

I would not hold on to them for so long. Cards can be randomly hacked and the value gone by the time you get around to using them. Pay bills, tuition, etc. but do not leave them lying around in your drawer.

It died about 18 months ago. Before that it worked.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Even after that it worked at certain POs.

Assume you're screwed? Now you know there's a way, just not what that way is.

Not everyone has sooper seekrit methods, so they feel special when they have one. No need to go so hard on him.

The first post was fine. But then he clearly didn't get the oohs and aahs he was expecting or the pms he so clearly wanted so he posted again. That's what I'm calling him out on.
