Quick Thoughts

The Just For U program comes out with these deals on Mastercard and Visa gift cards every so often. The last Mastercard deal ended less than a month ago, so it’s good to see it make a reappearance so relatively soon after the last one.

The digital coupon offering $15 off two $100 Mastercard gift cards is the better of the two deals here. $100 Mastercard gift cards cost $5.95 at Safeway et al, so you’ll make a profit of $3.10 before any liquidation fees you might have.

The $50 card offer is marginally profitable before liquidation fees. Those cards carry a $4.95 activation fee, so your profit is a grand total of $0.10. While a dime’s profit isn’t going to have you rushing to the grocery store, if you do your grocery shopping there anyway then it might be worth grabbing a couple of those once you take into account the points you’ll earn when paying with a card that earns more at grocery stores.

thx Stephen, nowadays i prefer mc to visa

Just add them to your Amazon giftcard balance. I buy stuff with Amazon every day so this is easy. Also, paying utility bills, insurance, etc.


now retract my previous comment; liquidation for <$100 @ WM is now not even possible


Stephen, having a bit of trouble with the MetaBank MC GCs. Trying to pay taxes, tuition and they are recognized as credit cards, not debit. They work, meaning they have their value etc., but when trying to liquidate on sites where it matters credit vs debit it’s a bust. I registered the cards and it did not change it. Any ideas?


Hey Stephen. Aren’t this issue by meta bank? Should I be concern of cashing them out easily?


Responding to this I was able to liquidate $600 of this cards last time (using 2 phone numbers) no problem and today again pick up $600 more no problem liquidating


how are you liquidating these cards considering they are small denomination?


Oh just into MO,


how much was ur MO amt for each? or, how many times did the cashier let u swipe?


1 MO for $500 (7 swipes) and one for $100 (1 swipe) total spend $1.98


wow, 7 swipes for 1 MO; very friendly cashier, a keeper; did cashier ask to see cards?

for me, once i say split even with only 2, most wanted to see cards, ID & watched like a hawk; even 1 immediately asked to see card after a swipe

Yes, they are Metabank cards.


Not seeing them in SoCal, although I’ve been hitting this deal every time it’s been offered.
