Hiya -

After reading all the posts and info on Vanilla Reloads -> bluebird, I started the process...
Got Bluebrid
found CVS which let me buy 5k in reloads

but then I emailed Chase to confirm that purchases at CVS qualify for the 5x points using my Ink Plus
i told them that I bought a whole bunch of holiday gifts for my office and waned to confirm etc.

they wrote back this,
"I am writing in response to your inquiry about the rewards
for a transaction with CVS Pharmacy on your Chase Ink Plus
business credit card account.

We sincerely regret to inform you that the merchant CVS
Pharmacy is a drugstore and is listed as a drugstore with
Visa due to which, the transaction will earn only 1 point
per dollar spent for your transactions with this merchant.
We are very sorry for all the inconvenience you may have
to experience due to this.

Please be informed that Visa and MasterCard systems assign
a category code to each merchant, based on the kinds of
products and services they sell. Sometimes the system
places merchants in a generalized category, like
"superstores" instead of "grocery stores" or "gas
stations."

Since the merchant in question was not assigned an
appropriate category, your purchases do not qualify for
the bonus reward."

Is there anything I can do?
Am I just out of luck?

Thanks for everything

What were you hoping it would be assigned at?

You have them confused with staples, office max, and office depot
You may not hold me responsible or liable for any actions taken that was recommended from my account or username.

Perhaps you were confusing it with buying prepaid visa or Mc gift cards at staples and using those to get the vr? That would work albeit with the added fee.

It's not the Nooob in me that was asking, it's the part if me that read dans posts which said that aside from reaching the spending threshold, purchasing VR via CVS can also procure the 5x rate... Guess I read wrong

Some cards earn 5x at CVS. Chase IP is not one of them.

If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
