(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:
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.
