    I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck using the PayPal Money Pack to complete the min spend? Can be loaded with up to $500 and the service fee is $3.95. I found a bunch of them at my local CVS, no Vanilla Reloads :(. Thanks!!!

    Yep, I loaded $2500 last month. I know that if you load and withdraw they will shut you down so I actually sent the money to my girlfriend who I live with and titled the message with the transaction as "Rent and Utilities." She then withdrew it and sent it back to my PNC bank account from her PNC bank account (after taking out $500 for rent :p). Worked just fine so I am planning on doing something similar every month now.

    I use my PayPal 2-3 times a month with selling things on Ebay as well which probably helps from red flags being raised.

    The only rule is not to withdraw the funds back to your checking account.

    Their business debit card offers CB for signature purchases, mitigating the cost of the cards.

    Of all the manufactured spending "partners" to get involved with I'd put PayPal towards the bottom of my list. As a last resort, maybe, but they are too quick to close accounts and the appeal process is decidedly challenging. Not worth the risk to "go big" on them IMO.

    I bought some at OM, no fee, and then got hit with a 4.95 activation fee, and 5 to buy, 5 to activate, local gas station had them up to 899.99, ended up with a pin and a MO.

    Makes the Serve Card look better, at CVS,
    Do not have a Serve Card,

    Might after FTY @ Seattle...
