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)

Just make sure you have a bag big enough to catch all the beans being spilled.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Does anyone know which Walmart in Lakewood or close to Lakewood allows 4 swipes of MasterCard GCs for an $800 money order? The Walmart I usually go to for this - their money order machine is temporarily out of business.

Any luck on this? Looking for a WM in the NJ or NY area - can really do anywhere in Jersey though.

And location.In my area it used to be easier, no limits , now some stores started doing one per swipe while others still do up to 4 swipes per money order .But still easy to buy several thousand a day.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

If you have nothing nice to say then just say nothing. Might as well give him one of your "good luck" posts instead of "lol".

All Walmarts take GC's for mo. You just need to find the right one and build a rapport with the store/cashier. What works for one person doesn't always work for another.

Not correct. They take debits cards. If you can pass off the GC as debit then you are good to go.

Not to mention the fact that he didn't at all answer the guy's question... He clearly knows that they work at Walmart, he's looking for one that is actually ok with them.
