  1. Payments towards insurance and other reoccurring bills. Anything that can be paid online. Thanks. I'd rather recycle these for cash equivalents and use my credit cards to pay for bills. I would too, but sometimes the convenience is worth the few dollars/points I would get back. After I check that the 5CB has posted, I can cut/paste the card number to pay the bill. True. I average about 40 of these a month and it starts to pile up, but I think I get a general idea how to burn these efficiently. If it is easy for you to split tender, use 6 $25s first and then a 500. That will leave you with a balance of $150 on the card. Do that 3 times and you will have 3 $150 cards. Then use 2 25s and those 150s for a purchase. More work, but not too bad.

  4. WM, grocery stores, and USPS are typical locations. Start small to learn and see what works.
  5. You can purchase up to 10k/day, but that must include the fees, so really only 19 $500 cards. They will let you split payment however you like.
  6. FYI - My Simon Mall customer service person said that CVS is pulling out of the 5CB on 1/20. I don't know if that means transactions on the 20th will count, or only ones through the 19th.
  7. Southwest acquiesced a bit and extended the deadline to transfer points till 3/31. After that new date, transfered points will no longer count towards the CP.
  8. Doubled check that this still works. So many might already know, but I just found out today. As of Jan 1, 2017, Southwest will no longer give the Companion Pass for transferred hotel points. Therefore, the 270k Marriott deal is a bust. I'll view this as a mixed blessing. I was working to get all these points together to get this deal, but now that there's no companion pass, it's not nearly as attractive, so I'm going to pass. This leaves my points available for getting first class tickets instead of flying Southwest, so maybe I'll move up in the world of travel a little bit. If you are interested in flying on Alaska or Virgin America, you can transfer some points Marriott points to Starwood at 3:1 and then to Virgin and get a 5k bonus on each 20k. That is going away on the 6th. Max of 60k plus bonus though. Those could then transfer at 1:1.3 to Alaska.
  9. You could also buy some VGC with her new card, convert them to MOs and pay down your cards. That way you don't get hit with any balance transfer fees. Basically M$ but for a different purpose
  10. Did they change that then? I joined some PA Parks organization several years ago for my "in" That is still available it says u have to be a permanent PA resident. https://www.psecu.com/apply/ Or have the same mailing address as an existing member - or visa versa
  11. They prefer semi-automatics Too bad Gen 4 isn't Kalifornia compliantI'll take a Gen 2 23 over a Gen 4 21 all day. Especially when that image is from a concealed carry article. Might as well be concealed carrying a 6.8SPC pistol .40 has nasty recoil. 9mm or 45 are much more usable in the absence of 10mm. I'm not a Glock person. The recoil on my Sig 239 .40 isn't bad at all. Still not as much fun to fire as my 1911, however.

  13. If you buy the PayPal My Cash card at CVS using a CC, it ends up in your PayPal account. If you buy one of the cards, use it right away so it gets linked to your account. After the first purchase, buy that exact card again since it will already be linked to your PayPal account. You can only load $500/day or $4000/calendar month. This should probably be under the advanced forum since it is about M$
  14. The PIN is the last 4 digits of the card number. You can use those at WM, but you won't get the additional 5% back unless you use them at one of the select merchants (such as CVS) I think people at FT were using them to buy VGCs at CVS and the 5% back was YMMV. Sometimes you have to open a case with Simon to get the 5% to post to your card. Cue up the ones that don't post so you can open up ONE case for all of them at once and save you a bit of the frustrations.
