    Just got a letter from Amex as I'm sure plenty of people did indicating that these two products will be discontinued, so I should plan to reload my Serve / Bluebird with cash at participating locations.

    It appears MoneyPak (which is useful where sold with credit) will be going away as of February 1st and Vanilla Reload PIN will be going away as of April 1st.

    Hi Satman,
    Walmart will load SMGC on the serve card. What is SMGC?

    Buying MOs at Kroger with GCs is really hit or miss. Some stores absolutely refuse to let me use Visa debit cards and other others allow multiple swipes using those same Visa debit cards.
    All allow "real debit cards" such as Suntrust but the $500 Visas a real crapshoot.

    Walmart also accepts the Kroger GC to load Bluebirds or buy MOs. These are not the Vanilla brand, so Walmart accepts them.

    There was another visa checkout promo from another card company I can't remember lately as well. I just signed up using a different email, etc. since it's only valid for first time users.

    WM will now only load the SERVE with SMGC at The Money Center, no more quick trips to the various registers...

    Use to hit 3 or 4 on the same trip..

    Anyone else having a slow week...

    Game is still on, just takes a bit more time,

    I haven't loaded a VR in over 3 months now. I had a friendly fuel stop that had VRs on the rack, and sold them with a CC, (always bought fuel there too) I am positive that I was the only one that even gave VRs a look. Fuel with a Costco AMEX card, VRs with what ever I needed most, hotel, airline, etc. I just measured all my VRs that I have in a box, measured end to end, is just over 16 inches. They do make good frost scrapers for the truck windows too. :rolleyes:
