Milk settlement e-check question.
Posted by: testcase
Date: February 23, 2022 01:11AM
I, and others here, got a settlement e-check for the Milk debacle recently. I got a “virtual” Debit Master Card for $18.90. I’m having a devil of a time trying to use said “e-funds”. I’ve tried using it at Amazon as partial payment and at Walmart. No joy. Have any recipients here had better luck?

I was able to use a debit Master Card that I got from United Health Care for doing an online health assessment in Google Pay to send the money to an existing bank account. I couldn't use it in stores for some reason but putting the exact amount into a Google Pay transaction took care of it.

You said it was a no-go for Amazon, but I have had luck buying an Amazon gift card with those debit cards. I just buy one for the exact amount on the debit card and apply it to my Amazon account

Back in January I got my virtual card for $18.90 and I was able to use it at Amazon. I should clarify that. I added it to my payment methods under Payments, then used it to reload my Amazon balance. I don't think I could have used it directly.

Using it to buy yourself a gift card at Amazon for the exact amount is the best, unless you have purchases you can make that are smaller. I just got one for $240, so I used it at stores and got cash back every time, until it had $2.10 on it, and then I bought a gift card with that amount.

The first payment could be taken as an Amazon gift card directly, wish they had done the same for the second. Jumping through hoops to use it is a pain.

I tried adding to my Amazon account with Discover Card as a back up. Amazon would NOT process that order. In Walmart, I tried to buy their Gift Card but was told I HAD to have a physical card (which had been an option from the Milk Settlement BUT, I'd have to lose ~ $7 to have a physical card mailed to me. I'll try the Amazon route again. THANKS for the helpful advice! boink smiley

Yeah, you can’t use it as a payment method, but have to buy a gift card for yourself.

agree smiley Yep. That's the way Amazon deals with those. It's simple, though not so easy.
