is $20.00 x 5pts = 1000 pts = $1? I prefer the 5000 pts wys $25 years ago. Isn't that a huge downgrade hoping customers will not notice?

or is my math off?

3/$2 Crest Pro Health toothpaste (6 oz) isn't terrible if you are brand specific,
or more free/cheap Colgate if you could ever need more Colgate.
Sure, I prefer free Pro Health but it's recently become my favorite toothpaste so I might pick up a few.

What's the fee on the Vanilla cards? I thought it was high enough that the deal would be losing money.

it varies from 4.95 to 5.95 depending on design. I buy the OneVanillas and pay it with credit to get rewards and then pay bills with it. It's not for everyone since it involves a huge amount of purchase to make it worth people's time and effort.

Can you not use that same credit card to pay those same bills and get rewards from the credit card that way? It cuts out the "middle man".

The general theme of this is: You buy the vanilla cards with a credit card that offers you cash back or whatever perks. Then you use those vanilla cards to load a permanent prepaid card such as Amex Serve which has a bill pay function, and pay your bills with that. Or you can just use the Serve like a normal card to spend the money. The value of the perks exceeds the fees, and that is the slickdeal.

I'm purposely omitting many details, because I don't do this and I am not an expert. Search for Manufactured Spending if you are interested. In my opinion, this is a very elaborate exercise which involves a lot of work and a lot of money floating around .... but, a lot of people are doing it.

Yes, instead of giving you the usual handsome 200 points (20?) for your $20 purchase, they are giving you a princely 1000 points ($1.00).

It sounds pretty lame when you write out the actual money amounts. You will note they don't do that in the ad. Big Grin

I researched it quite a bit last month and still don't understand what the draw is. Seems to me that you can use the same credit card to pay your bills and get rewards from your credit card. My Capital One Visa gives me 2 points for every dollar spent at grocery stores, etc., 3 (4 maybe?) for every dollar spent on gas, etc., etc. I later turn those points into gift cards.

Dontknow

I did spend some time in research of the same and did not find it worth the time and effort in doing this, unless you are able to pay the same credit card bill that you used to purchase the gift cards.
Recently fellow slickdealers in the Apps thread were talking about the Redbird card which sounds interesting but I am yet to invest soe time in research.

It also depends on what bills u need to pay. Some companies allow u to pay with credit card but others charge extra fees (utilities, mortgage). This avoids those extra fees.

I think you use this Vanilla Visa card to buy another pre-paid card that allows you to either cash it out via an ATM or go into any store that does cash back on a debit card purchase and buy a pack of gum and get the max amount of cash back. You then do this as many times as necessary to convert the $$ on the card to cash. At least that is what I remember from researching "manufactured spending" several years ago....

i.e you basically buy a pre-paid credit card with a credit card that gives you points/miles/etc and then exchange the pre-paid card for cash which you then use to pay your credit card bill.
