Payments Workshop – Making Payments Rewarding and Efficient

Introducing Payments Workshop, the place to discuss anything related to making payments with credit cards and gift cards.

We’ll explore how to maximize credit card categories, get airline credits, and best use prepaid cards.

 

We’ll examine the following topics:

  • Which merchants and retailers trigger bonus categories across the various credit card programs?
  • Which travel purchases work to trigger airline or travel credits?
  • Find here which vendors are partners with VisaSavingsEdge and MastercardEasySavings.
  • Which merchants allow overpayment/prepayment?
  • Major online retailers whoplace a $1 hold, who require you to register a prepaid card to your address, and who drain prepaid cards automatically.
  • Max number of gift cards or credit cards that can be used online or in-store.

Please read this post for a longer explanation of what we record in this table, how to use this table, examples, search tips, and glossary.

Not really a site most people will use, but TicketsNow.com allows split payment up to two credit/debit cards

Information Booth

Recently tried Pepsi vending machine… as predicted…groceries. Thought it was kinda cool that could pay with CC’s and get pts. for it. Could help meet monthly spending requirement wo/ having to go to any store. Hope this helps somebody… Love in Christ.
.

Toys R Us allows split payments with a CC. Done 10 at one time. They call it “partial pay” and you do everything on the terminal yourself. The cashier just sits back and waits. Nice having that control. Helpful for Amex sync offers.

I’ve done 20. Worked fine.

Walgreens:

1) Can’t use Walgreens GCs to buy Gift Cards

2) Can’t use Walgreens GCs to buy Milk (and a few other odd items which I can’t remember)

1. YMMV. It probably depends on the district because I’ve read on FT and other boards that many are able to buy third party GCs with WAG GCs PROVIDED they are the GCs off the rack, not merchandise credit GC. I’ve tried this also at different stores in various states and GCs I’ve bought from WAG were taken as payment for other GCs.

2. YMMV. from experience, the merchandise credit GC (the ones they issue for returned items) are the ones that have a lot of restrictions. For the regular GCs off the rack, they are accepted for milk and other dairy products and eggs, too.

Wait, so you can add a VGC to your PayPal account?

[…] Payments Workshop at Doctor of Credit. Yeah, that is the other blog recommended by Mile Nerd. We can’t afford that “Chuck” writer around here unless you abuse my links, thanks […]

I found that Safeway self checkout will autodrain 1 card. If I try another card that doesn’t cover the total, it errors out and I have to use a ‘real’ cc to finish rest. Have not tried at regular checkout.

American Eagle autodrain in store

Stop and Shop will autodrain AXGC. I’ve split payment at least four ways, not sure what the theoretical max is.

Stop and Shop self-checkout is my go to place for draining Visa and MC gift cards. I’ve probably done five or more. Just don’t pick a busy time or the people behind you will hate you.

[…] only offers $25 denominations at the cost of $20. Staples has a max of 5 gift cards that can be applied per purchase. I bought three software for $120 and used five $25 gift cards. Then bought another 3 with another […]

[…] to our payments workshop, you should be able to split payment over at least three cards. This is giving you basically a […]

Doesn’t apply to many, but I drain cards online via my E-Z Pass prepaid toll account, Just select 1 time cc payment and enter the exact amount. Prob works for other prepaid toll systems around the country.

e-zpassny.com

Can we get some data for the USPS? Lots of people are starting to buy money orders from them using prepaid debit.

Sure, give it a try and let us know and we’ll update it.

I was unable to purchase a MO at USPS with a vgc (macerich mall) this week. When I scanned the card I was prompted to enter the pin. I did so, but the system indicated payment source (or type, I don’t recall) not allowed.

I’ve done up to 4x VGCs at USPS (2x $998.40 MOs). Haven’t tried more but don’t plan to either.

Verizon: not sure whether this belongs here, but Verizon does not allow their own gift cards to be used to pay for the prepaid plans, despite the card being advertised as payment for “phones, accessories and services.” It’s in the little tiny print on the back of the card (which you see only after you purchase it) or on the website on the page where you can check the balance (after you purchase the card.) I was given a card as a refund for a phone and found this out the hard way when I tried to pay my bill online…confirmed by hour of useless “chat”. Went back to the store where I was given the card and amazingly, the staffperson ran the gift card through his handheld device and it took the payment that way. I have to go back to the store every month now to pay my bill so I can use up the gift card.
