There was similar offer for prepaid MC a few weeks ago. I was surprised to find they’d been removed from the stores in my state. We’ve never been able to purchase prepaid Amex but MC wasn’t a problem. Maybe the MC got pulled because of the theft issues.
I saw plenty of Visa’s so I’ll be getting those for 5% on Chase Ink.
Limit 1 per customer but no Rewards card needed since no Rewards earned for gc purchases so its up to the cashier to enforce the limit.
Something to keep in mind when using Lowe’s gift cards (at least based on my past experiences):
When making an online order, and the often unreliable Lowe’s store inventory shows your item in-stock (but it’s not), that order, or portion thereof, is canceled. You don’t get a cancellation email–instead you get a phone call. All of this applies regardless if you used a Lowe’s gift card or a credit card to pay for your order.
The rub is if paid by Lowe’s gift card, they do not credit that amount back to your gift card (as you might expect). To get your money back, you must phone Lowe’s customer service and ask them for it. Plan on 10 or more minutes for that step. Once they agree to that, plan on another 3 or 4 days for UPS to deliver an envelope to you that contains yet another plastic Lowe’s gift card for the canceled amount!
Toys R Us has a lot of gall selling their gift cards for 10% off when they know very soon they will be closing all their stores. I guess they have nothing to lose at this point by duping their customers. Companies that operate like that are better off out of business.
@jokerzwild I recall you missing a Southwest GC deal a few months back due to a hold on your account. Several new deals have been posted since then, so this is a heads up in case you missed any of them.
Where I’m guessing that $4.99 and $5 are considered the same thing…
Good point… especially dealing with MS. However, they say you have a choice of 25 titles and when you click the “Buy Now” button for the promo, only 25 titles show up. So, I think you’re safe as long as you spend $4.99 on each (I don’t see any that cost exactly $5.00).
