Interesting... From their FAQ, they make specific mention of bulk-ordering these.

Cards also available at branches, but with a $3.50 fee. Marginally less than buying at VR for those playing that game.

9. What are the fees for the card? [COLOR=#024ba6]Back to the top[/COLOR]
The current fees include:

Gift Cards purchased at branches: $3.50
Gift Cards available at www.chase.com: No charge for the gift card. Standard shipping $4.95. Express delivery an additional $15.95

Bulk orders: $3.50 per card. A minimum of 20 cards and a maximum of 500 cards per order. Shipping $16.95 per order.

I think they're talking about bulk orders as genuine gifts. Say a company wants to give gift cards to employees or clients. I seriously doubt they're talking about manufacturing spending to meet minimum spending requirements for credit cards.

I agree that is their intent. The program is more interesting than I thought, however.

Despite that, as I said earlier in the thread, this one isn't for me.

Perfect setup for a Jersey joke... 😉

So , those of you who bought the cards, bought it to your own name?
I just bought one $500 to my wife's name. But to buy gift cards to my name is very suspicious.
Tomorrow I may talk to my friend to have him buy a few cards for me and I can buy some for him.

I also put my wife as the recipient as well when I ordered mine.

Do you think I can have my wife or my friends use this gift cards to by money orders that I can deposit in my bank account? Is buying money orders allowed with this giftcards?

did you only buy for your wife or you bought cards for you and for your wife.?
I am tempted to buy a few to my name but I don't want to be blacklisted.

I bought some on my credit card for my wife and then I bought some on my wife's card with me as the recipient.

As far as that goes, you would have to list them as the recipient because Chase actually prints the name on the card itself.

I bought one with my UA Club card. Statement just closed and I got my 1.5x points. Now using this to buy a handful to meet min purchase requirements of another Chase card. Will keep it light as I've got too much good going on with Chase.

I have a question. Hi I'm pretty much on my own doing the miles game here. My wife is afraid and doesn't want to team up with me on this. My question is, if I buy GF on her name, can she deposit that money on MY bluebird at Walmart or only I would be able to deposit using a GC with my name?

Did you buy the gift card to your own name?

Yes, I used my real name. When I bought it I was not sure if I would be cashing out with a MO or an advance - I figured that having my name would make the latter method easier.
