Buy a Paypal prepaid mastercard load $150.00 on it pay $154.95 and get $50 Extra cash bucks
Buy another paypal prepaid master card load another $150 pay with the card u just recently purchased
thats a $90 money maker
Update: i just did this transaction again, i ran into an issue where screen was not letting me pay with the Master card so i told the cashier i will pay $140 with the paypal master card and rest cash and it went through and i just checked for some reason their is a hold for $4.95 on my paypal master prepaid card. So if you run into a similar problem advice the cashier you would like to pay $145 with the mastercard and rest with cash/other credit card transaction will go smoothly
Update 2: looks like a lot of people having trouble activating their cards to PayPal. Here goes another trick, PayPal start flagging ur account after u activate 3 cards so the trick is u use all the balance in the 3 u activated and than call or email to cancel those 3 cards after those cards are canceled than u will be able to add 3 more cards to the same PayPal account.
Another tip is don't give them ur SSN or Dob when u call just tell them u want to do 1 transaction or u don't feel the need of giving ur personal info mention word "limitation" the bell will ring in CS ear and u will be good to go, go to Kroger if u have nearby u can cash out the whole GC friend of mine did it.
Just tell them u r looking for cash back some will give u without any purchase and some will require u to purchase something
Update 3: I found out today that safeway gives out the most cashback $200 u can go to any safeway affiliated store for the cashback but it require you to make a purchase just purchase a candy or something and cash out the rest try avoid going early morning because they might not have that much cash on them and they might decline you night is best option afternoon will be okay as well.
Be nice to the cashier
