So I was suppose to have an easy day of Visa GC churning at Office Max with this deal but the coupon wasn’t working nationwide because they didn’t have the right giftcards in stock. Well I’m thinking, the ad doesn’t specify a type of visa, they all look the same to me! So here is my success/fail:
OM#1 – Manager overrode the system and gave me the credit so only paid $500 for $500 in giftcards. So broke even and made 2,500 in Ultimate Reward points using my Chase Ink
OM#2 – Staff charged me for the full total including fees but issued me a refund of $30. So total cost 499.75 and another 2,500 UR points.
OM#3 – They had giftcards in stock but wouldn’t give me an override or refund of $30. Manager gave me his card and said to call to check when they get the correct giftcards in.
OM#4 – They pulled all the Visas off the rack and told me to come back another day.
Ok OM…why would you have a promotion and not make sure you have the appropriate cards in stock! I have a churning contest I’m trying to win 😉 So I gave up my search for the day and moved on to other items.
I did $1,000 in Paypal cards, $1,000 in Visas and unloaded via bb, and $2,000 in MO with Suntrust.
Man trying to churn this much everyday is going to be exhausting…I’m already loosing momentum and it’s only day 2! On a positive note, I’m working on getting a 3rd Bluebird so this will help alot!
