Here's an idea I have been working on: If you purchase the Dell gift certificate, then place an order and pay for part of your order with your Visa card, then return the order, you will get credited the full purchase amount on your Visa.

this sounds like an interesting idea. Has anyone ever tried this before and can verify that it works?

Fish like prizes more than cash i suspect. a lot of fish don't care about the $$, but (for whatever reason) get their eyes on a prize and play till they get it.

That's a good question: what is the point? I don't see how Stars is benefiting from the prizes, except maybe from people saving FPPs more, which seems like small potatoes to them, and fairly easily kept by putting the cash redeem at 50 or 100k points.

I suspect there's a legal issue somewhere.

My guess is by giving merchandise stars can buy at wholesale and sell at retail. Effectively your 15% rakeback might only cost stars 10%

Illegal as in against the law? Why would this be against the law?

no it's not. simply returning an item is well within the rules, it's up to them how they decide to credit you. What if someone did this unknowingly and got credited back on their visa? Would you support prosecuting them for fraud? Obviously you wouldn't.

Why don't you just explain how it is legally fraud?

Not fraud in my State, and I work in the field. Don't know if it will work or not though.
