    What is DL? (In the samsung watch gas station comment)

      Driver’s licence?

      • Joe says:

        it looks like /u/yugi used their driver’s license to fake putting a card in the slot. anything that the reader wouldn’t read would probably work (maybe even put a credit or debit card in backward?)

    So as the sust have settled. There are no new credit card specials recently or links with special sign up bonus languages. I have run out of credit cards to swipe to reach minimum spend.
    So today i went over my 73 credit card album thinking which cards to pick out for daily spend.
    After 30min of back and forth, I picked out the Spark 2% cash back and the SPG.
    All the rest are somewhat worthless and overrated cards for daily spend. 😜

    Is the Saks part supposed to link to another site? Because it links to your post about it twice.

    Never knew about buying My Cash cards at CVS with a credit card and loading funds to PayPal account.
    Oh well…….MS gravy train is getting slower and slower now.

      Don’t worry, you didn’t lose much, your ignorance of this feature probably kept you safe from a very likely Paypal shutdown. They were shutting down random accounts for MyCash loading and among my family members, two more accounts got shut down because of that.

    Found out last week that Vanilla Master debit card issued by Bancorp bank is no longer able to load on bluebird or serve account.

    DoC, is the FT post you mentioned in response to a cashier insisting it won’t work? It sounds like this was their strategy at a gas station pump – must have a mechanical switch that you have to trigger with a dummy card for the magnetic sensor to pick up the Samsung pay transmitter.
