  1. What’s the basic principle of manufactured spending?
    NEVER BORROW MONEY UNLESS YOU MAKE A PROFIT ON THE TRANSACTION!

  2. I don’t MS either. Tried it and hated it. Lots of hidden costs including miles on the car, time spent driving around, and most importantly standing in line at Walmart. I felt like I was standing in line at the welfare office. What a shitbox.

    1. For me, it was more the time required. I had a Bluebird way back and went to WM once or twice with Vanilla reloads when they still had the Money Center kiosk. Even though the CVS was right near my house and the Walmart was near work, this was way too much effort for a few thousand miles.

  3. I stopped after my third time standing in line at WM when a dude brought in a leaking propane tank to exchange. The store had to be evacuated. Then there was a wave of shutdowns and nothing but bad news at WM, I have no regrets.
