Looking to gather all the options for Bluebird, after reading many outdated blog posts, long FT threads, etc. I typically don't bother with manufactured spending, except for trying to reach minimum spend. For this run, paying rent through Bluebird is going a long way towards helping me reach my goal. It seems there are a few things folks are trying these days: Still getting VRs at regional locations that take credit cards (very limited by location and chain) [online unload to BB] PayPower (if you can find it) with $0 fee [load to BB at WM] - could be dead and hard to find. Visa/Mastercard Debt Gift Cards with PIN ($6.95 or $5.95 fee from MetaBank seem to work the best) [load to BB at WM] - these seem to be the most widespread. $200 online Staples purchase and getting % back through an online portal (if you can find a portal that will do it.. TBD) AAA gift cards if you have a AAA membership (maybe only mid-atlantic?) My Vanilla Debit? T-Mobile Visa Prepaid Card (gravy train may be ending on this too) Simon Gift Cards at select Simon Malls ($3 fee for $500 load) I know there are more, but since I'm just trying to reach minimum spend on my Ink by paying rent through credit card purchases, I've been sticking to the Visa Debit Gift Cards from MetaBank. If I could find a way to do it with slightly less fees, I would!
