I need to manufacture some spend on my DL Amex, and I have some very large purchases coming up from vendors who take VISA/MC/Discover but not Amex. I've been trying to read the threads here and the hundreds of threads each with hundreds of posts on TOBB, but that just spins my eyeballs and confuses me more. So, if a local store will let me use my DL Amex to purchase their generic prepaid visa cards: 1. will Amex give me credit (towards the annual MQM bonus)? 2. will any place that accepts Visa debit cards accept these cards? 3. any gotchas I have to watch out for?
