Got shutdown at Walgreens today. Sounds like gas station and CVS are my next spots to hit up.

I went to CVS to pick up some VRs. They say they are only allowing $1000 in VRs/day on credit cards.

Wish I had a CVS nearby. Making 10 trips there would be worth it to churn 10K through BlueBird every month.

You need to know restrictions about Bluebird deposit. You cannot deposit more than $1000 worth Vanilla Reloads on any day. If you try to do that Amex will not allow to do it. VR representative cannot help it.

Also in any calendar month, you cannot load more than $5000 using Vanillar Reload. You can buy $1000 per day for 10 days but cannot load more than $5000. or have to wait till 1st day of next month. The $10,000 per month is the limit using checking account.

You can buy worth $10,000 in last 10 days of the month or first 10 days of your credit card new cycle. Load $5,000 on the last day of the month evening and balance $5000 on next day morning. of first day of new month.That is OK.

Also you cannot load more than $100,000 in a year..

There's a Federal Law that says you can only buy $500/day worth of gift cards per store.

Chase Freedom 10+10 Visa Signature ($9k Limit - 8/2012)
Chase Sapphire Preferred ($10k Limit - 2/2013)

A better option to monthly loading restriction is to have separate card for spouse rather than dependent card.

If you add spouse as dependent first and then cancel it to apply for separate card, then spouse cannot use same email address used as dependent or that phone number. It has to be different.

Yes i was talking about having two cards. Husband and wife. Thats 10k a month. And if its a federal law for $500 in gift cards per store, then a lot of stores/people are breaking it.
