    I concur. I just mention it so people know all the risks. I’ve also run lots of money through SB fully aware of shutdown for no reason risks, so I drain my SB once I accumulate $25 worth. (The only reason I let it sit is if I’m waiting to cash out for a beginning of the month gift card.)

    Finally bought enough gift cards to pay for my trip. $3000 dollars worth of gift cards and saved 340 dollars to spend at meijer for groceries.

    Exactly! My SB account was shut down, and I didn't do anything different than what people on this thread are doing everyday.

    And that's why I figure I might as well keep going because pretty much anything can get you banned--so might as well make some money before the opportunity ends.

    I don't have a Meijer's nearby, but there are 2 about 65 miles away. I'll need to buy about $3,000 worth of gift cards by the end of the year. Can you give me a primer on how you were able to get the $340 to spend on groceries? I have a very fuel efficient car so my local grocery that had fuel perks is not really worth a lot for me anymore.

    So ... at your suggestion I cashed out of my first $25 at SB (one of the virtual Visas to use at ShopDisney). I'm mulling over cashing out on another $50 or taking a chance and waiting until next month for the discounted $25 gift card.

    Question about Ebates (since there's no official thread): I made a reservation through Ebates for a rental car at Hertz. We originally had a larger car reserved because my parents were going to go with us. About a week prior we downgraded the size and thus decreased the price dramatically. This purchase/rental never showed up so I was going to put in a claim. But my question is, will they even accept it since the reservation was changed? Anyone know?

    It's worth a try. My motto in life is: if you don't ask, they can't say "yes."

    Sooooooo last night I realized that I have enough Shopkicks points for $15 in Walmart GCs, and DH has enough for $20. I had completely forgotten I made him download Shopkick back in Feb? when they ran a promo like 15 kicks per dollar plus Chase had the 10x points on some of their cards!

    No, and I asked twice, very nicely. They also refused to tell me what I did wrong.

    Nice! Didn't know meijer had them! I'm assuming you ordered them online?

    I'm so sorry! This is exactly why I always cash out every $25 as well, and try to play it as safe as I can with SB's. I'm sure you were doing the same as we all are here.

    Well I’m shocked...I *DID* get credit for the Disney gift card! So this is one way to earn rewards on gift card purchases.:goodvibes

    As an update on this, my amount has updated to the correct value and my reward is pending. And today my first order switched to available!
