  • Eligible Participants will earn 5% cash back on Eligible Purchases; the maximum cash back amount is $20.00 USD. Eligible Participants must earn at least $0.50 USD minimum in cash back to receive Reward.

Our Verdict

Offer needs to show up in app when applying, but should be showing for everybody. Not really that exciting of an offer to be honest, but we usually don’t see a sign up bonus on this card. Sometimes we see bonuses for existing users, so might be worth picking it up for those but they are fairly rare.

Cash boost seems like a better option for those that shop kroger. P2, though, for some reason, wasn’t offered that boost 🙁

Kroger has been long gone as a boost in cash app.

Weird question that I hope someone could shed light on. Went to meijer today and wanted to get rid of some small balance Visa gift cards. Non reloadable, sunrise bank. The first one I swiped had 1.98 left on it but it cleared the whole purchase of 47.53. Thought maybe I mislabeled it but checked when I got home and there is 1.98 on it, last transaction posted a week earlier. This is a registered card and I used mPerks so they know who I am. Is there anything I can do or just wait until it plays out?

Sorry if wrong place to ask.

My personal advice – tell the meijer customer care everything that happened.

What if Visa goes after him then? How did it even get approved if there wasn’t enough balance on the card? If it’s non reloadable, they can charge fees. Its supposed to be declined. Obviously something messed up. I’d wait to see how it plays out and see which one comes after you.

I concur; for $45.55 where you can be identified through mPerks (and a store you frequent), it’s best to let the store’s customer service know what happened.

Thanks. I’ll have to call in the morning, live about 30 miles away.

UPDATE: I emailed Meijer, but the Visa Gift balance now has a negative balance so it looks like they paid Meijer. Guess they’ll either send me a bill for it or write it off. Stupid that it happened that way, it should not have. Thanks for all the advice.

I once had a VGC that I used to reload a store-brand gift card on the store’s website. The VGC had like $13 so I’d reload $10 on the store gift card. The $10 would stay pending and fall off after a week or so. I continuously reloaded $10 and had the same result. Eventually, I tried reloading the exact $13ish amount and the charge finally posted. Small gravy train ended. Nothing ever came of it.
