EDIT: THE MODERATOR AT SAVEROCITY HAS ASKED ME NOT TO EMAIL YOU, AND SINCE THAT’S WHERE I GOT THE TRICK, I WILL OF COURSE COMPLY. PLEASE SIGN UP AT THE SAVEROCITY FORUMS TO ACCESS IT, AS I AM NOT GOING TO INDEPENDENTLY REVEAL IT. I APOLOGIZE FOR THE MIX-UP.
We all know how awesome and terrifically user-friendly USAA is as a bank, so I feel as though a review would be superfluous for most people. However, I just discovered a new way to manufacture spend using USAA. However, I learned it not independently, but through a forum.
For those of you into manufactured spending, credit card churning, or just personal finance hacks, I cannot recommend enough the Saverocity Forums. (In full disclosure, I have another website there, called Military Finance). Just shoot Matt an email, and you’ll get signed up.
Probably the most robust subforum with the forums is the manufactured spend one. Just today I was browsing, and found an ingenious way to manufacture spend, using Paypal and USAA.
In the name of good stewardship, I’m not going to post the trick publically here, because I did not independently discover it, and don’t want to ruin it. To get you the info, I recommend one of two things: either sign up for the forums and discover it there, or post a comment below, and I’ll email everyone that responds within 72 hours.
Two requirements: you must be a USAA member, and you must be a Paypal member.
