Can someone explain this?
"Perform at least 8 signature-based card transactions"

Does this mean I have to use the debit card in a physical location? Can't go online and make 8 $1 transaction?

THIS is the real deal maker or breaker for me. I usually do required transactions for these requirements as small purchases online.

I assume they mean credit purchases that require signature. Not sure if online credit purchase counts.

One of the comments says amazon gift card reloads count toward the 8 required charges.
