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)

Seems clear to me that he is saying there is an avenue that is as accessible to the average person as the PO was and is capable of supporting some volume. Did you expect him to say something like:
Go into location x
Look for the sign by checkout that says Amex bill payment here.
Swipe up to 30k debit
Rinse and repeat
Watch method die in 48 hours?

I donít know if he put in lots of legwork, to find this avenue or acquired the data point in exchange for something he shared with someone else, but it sounds like he is giving a small amount of direction to others and banking on the fact that someone who finds it by putting in lots of effort will not compromise it by disseminating it widely. Makes sense to me.

And my point was that he didn't add anything. There is always an out.
That's the way it been for forever.
Your never screwed.
Him hinting that he has a way didn't add anything of significance to help the fellow who is looking to liquidate his GC's.
respectfully disagree im more motivated to try to investigate  as i see others found a better way then any other way i can think of

called up metabank 1800 number and they submitted the refund request  to transfer gc funds into a check without a fee . However i grouped a bunch of different  gc numbers into one request you think the back office would approve it ?

It seems like you're mixing things up.  The UPS method is not the USPS method.
For obvious reasons I can't say more.

No! That will kill it! It is only safe if it's shared בדיעבד, but לכתחילה it will kill it!

Sounds like you were never really supsessful at it.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
