    Ok, too good to be completely true, then :). Still, this could be useful for those rebate debit cards, or even GC loads since I only go to a WM once a week.

    So, looks like the $1,000 per month is independent of the $5,000/mo limit on in-store loads? *edit, in-store reloads are listed as 'Cash'*

    Not sure, this is helpful arguably because it means heading to Walmart one day less per month.

    Still not sure what I am going to do this month if CVS doesn't have vanilla.

    You might want to keep an eye on the FT threads that talk about this. I remember seeing some people expressing concerns about Amex taking action if people use gift cards instead of "real" debit cards.

    Do you know the limits to how many cards you can add/month/at a time?

    Sorry, no idea. I have only one prepaid debit card that I am slowly using up. Not going to connect it to my BB account.

    I figured I would let the explorers over in the MS board figure out the limits of this ;)

    I tried to link a pre-paid debit Mastercard and my account was frozen immediately. Had to call Account Protection Services and they told me I can't link pre-paid debit cards. Went to Walmart kiosk and loaded there.

    I was thinking about this. Can you link American Express Debt cards online?

    I also linked a pre-paid card but my account was not frozen at all. However, I got an email from Bluebird saying I have linked a prepaid card which is not allowed. "Please call us to discuss this situation". I called and the CSR just told me which card I had to remove. All is good.
    The CSR said only true debit cards would work but who knows what "true debit" cards really mean. My guess is that cards with PINs that work with getting cash-back at POS machines should qualify.
