Reload your Amazon Gift Card Balance with Amazon Cash (+ $10 Promo Credit)

(Hat Tip to Doctor of Credit’s post: Free $10 Amazon Credit with $20 Amazon Cash Reload)

Good morning everyone!  A few days ago, Amazon introduced a new way to reload your Amazon gift card balance, called Amazon Cash.  Instead of buying an Amazon gift card in store, scratching off the code, and entering the code into your Amazon account, you can now create a specific barcode that will load money directly to your Amazon account.  Just show the barcode at the register of qualifying stores, pay for your purchase, and your gift card balance will be instantly updated.

If you act before July 31, 2017, you can get a $10 promo credit (that must be used before August 31, 2017) if you use your Amazon Cash barcode to load $20 or more.  One of the qualifying stores that accepts Amazon Cash is CVS, so I went to my local CVS and tried it out.  Here are the promo terms:

New PayPal My Cash Cards and Online Loading Process (Light Blue PPMCC 0215v1)

Update and Warning: the purpose of this post was to show what the new PPMCCs looked like and show how the PPMCC loading website has changed.  I did not mention the danger of using PPMCCs as a way to MS and I wanted to make it very clear that PPMCCs are very dangerous, if you value your PayPal account.  If you withdraw funds from your PayPal account or transfer funds to another PayPal account, you will receive a warning email from PayPal.  If you continue, they may freeze your account and hold the funds in your account for up to 6 months.  For most people, it is better to stay far, far away from PPMCCs.  You have been warned.

Good evening everyone, I stopped by my local CVS and noticed a new gift card on the gift card rack.  The traditional white PayPal My Cash Card (PPMCC) has changed and is now mostly light blue.  The loading process is almost identical to before, but has a better user interface now.  Just like the Vanilla Reload Cards back in the day (RIP old friend), these cards have a date stamp (0215v1) which means February 2015, version 1.  I was able to purchase this card with my credit card at CVS without any problems.  The card says reusable on the front, so I wonder how that would work.

Random News: Amazon AMEX Offer, 6,000 Bonus Hilton HHonors Points, Apple Pay at Walgreens, and Accidental Chime Card Hack

Good evening everyone, I know this offer was mentioned 10+ hours ago, but I wanted to make sure to share it: Amazon AMEX Offer provides a $15 statement credit after making a $15+ purchase on Amazon.  #freemoney.  Unfortunately, none of my AMEX cards have this offer, I guess AMEX doesn’t love me after all.  Shawn @ Miles to Memories received this offer on 6 out of 7 of his AMEX cards. #luckyguy

Thanks Whitney for the image.

In other credit card news, I received a targeted offer for my Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Credit Card.  I can earn 2,000 bonus points for each stay until February 28, 2015, up to 6,000 points.  This offer is nothing special, but if you have this credit card, you should have received a similar (maybe better?) offer in your inbox.  Hilton Points are worth about 1/2 a cent, so this offer is a big yawn in my book.  Good deal if you had upcoming Hilton stays already planned though.

New Chime Card Cash Back Offers: Panera, CVS, Wendy’s, Costco, TGI Fridays, and Others

Good morning everyone.  I checked my Chime Card app this morning and noticed a bunch of new cash back offers.  If you still don’t have a Chime Card, you are missing out on free cash back offers.  Learn more about the Chime Card here.

Remember, these offers are first come, first serve save.  With Chime Offers, both credit and debit card transactions count at these merchants, as long as you spend the minimum amount to claim the offer. I have never tried buy items online with my Chime Card, but I suppose it *might* work.  If you want to be safe, I would buy items in-store, including gift cards.  Panera, CVS, and Costco offers will probably go fast, so start shopping!
