Re: rebate debit card - use it as credit card payment?
[ Edited ]

Thank you! I appreciate everyone's replies.

 

I guess I'll apply this then as payment to one of the utility bills when I'm ready to pay one of them over the phone.

 

Luckily this rebate card comes with instructions that say that at checkout that though

"this is not a credit card, ... always choose credit when purchasing goods (even though you're using a prepaid card)"

 

I guess I don't know enough about these prepaid debit cards because that sounds counterintuitive to me. I would've tried to pick the "debit" option.

 

And I'll check into laboi_22's suggestion with USAA.
