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)

nope! I put in the wrong password so it declines and I'm like, oh sorry, let me call my bank and come right back. I don't know what is going on!

Walmart system today was hardwired to decline( decline for insufficient fund - error code 51) my regular $800 MO split by 4 x $200 Staples visa. A single $200 MO did work. I don't think it was a mistake from the employees she has been doing it for me for a long time.

Anybody have info on the change? and suggestions for liquidating another 4K?

I walked by a western union midtown office 8 months ago.  They allow purchasing MOs with a debit card but they charge min $20 fee if I remember correctly.  I personally have not tried it.  If you are stuck with 1K cards, you might give it a try.

Data point for Ohio: I had no trouble cashing out MB VGC for MO at Walmart and Kroger up through last week. This week, the $99 limit suddenly seems to be in effect. Not great timing, as I loaded up during the last no-fee Staples offer. My understanding is that the coding is by state (e.g., Ohio worked until now, WV hasn't worked for years).

1) Any other data points from Ohio that confirm or contradict this?
2) Any data points from KY, TN, PN, VA, SC, or NC (or other states? would be useful to know if MO purchases for $200/card are still possible anywhere)?

A lot of times POS's are updated by region and it's always a YMMV depending on the store. We're in OH and our WM MC won't let us use debit cards for loading or anything. Our Staples limits us to one fee free VGC. I've moved on past GCs/MO's and most prepaids.

I'm hearing some data points that its a blackhawk network move. This makes sense, since Kroger and WM stopped working at the same time. No problem w/ Serve so far. What I wouldn't give for a map of blackhawk regions....
