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)

Has anyone seen a change in their regular places taking OVs?

ETA  It turns out there was a system wide outage between 4-6pm yesterday.  That was a scare.
Huh? Which place was that?  ;D

Which places will take 5 swipes for one MO?  (ie, Is there a limit of 4 swipes?)
My PM is open.

PO, but I suppose that won't work for the kind of gc's you have.

Hi. My WM takes MetaBank for MO no problem. But I can't get my Vanilla to work. Is it hard coded not to work, or is there a way to press a button (?yellow) and bypass the signature screen?

Do PO take Vanilla?

Figured I would pass this on. I was at the post office this mailing doing a routing mailing and the clerk assisting me was handed a letter from a supervisor. I couldnt read the letter but the subject was Money order fraud.. Not sure what it was in regards to, but figure i would pass that on.

This may seem silly, but I have two $200 4358's that I'm having trouble liquidating - can I use them to buy a $400 VGC at CVS, which I should be able to liquidate at the post office? Yes, I know, I'll be hit with another gift card fee on top of the two I already paid, but it may be my best option.

Might as well buy a $500 VGC. Get another $100 MS at no additional cost.
