Warning for funding DCU with a Credit Card

I funded my DCU Savings and Checking account with my First National Bank Credit Card for $15 and was charged $15 Cash Advance Fee by FNBO.  I learned my lesson and used our checking account to fund my partners account.

Wow, that stinks D: I know when I funded mine I asked both DCU and Chase if using my credit card would result in a cash advance fee, or if it would be coded as a purchase. They both answered as a purchase.

 

A years difference could've changed it, or FNBO may be smart and recognize the transaction as such.

Re: Warning for funding DCU with a Credit Card

I tried to call FNBO and she acted like I was STUPID... Cut my losses on that one and my account is already closed with them anyway, was just hoping I might sweet talk a 1 time courtesy waive but I'm not sweet talking anyone that is talking to me stupid.
