Using BB&T Visa Gift Cards on Amazon

I received a BB&T Visa Gift card earlier this year and decided I would put it to good use on Amazon. I put my items in the card, added the card like a regular form of payment and checked out. Ten minutes later, I received an email that my payment had been declined and I needed to fix that. Half an hour and lots of googling later, I was no closer to ordering.
I remembered in one forum, however, someone mentioned registering their card. I assumed they were talking about activating the card by calling the number and setting a pin (which I had done). Apparently he wasn’t, and the rest of this post will be a quick how-to guide on using your BB&T Visa Gift Card on Amazon (so you don’t waste over an hour of your life!). Read On

A Harris Teeter Trip

I had my first grocery shopping trip alone with Abigail today. David and I had gone with her before when she was around 2 weeks old but she didn’t like being in the car seat and cried a bit. Since then I have just done my grocery shopping while David was with Abigail at home. But today was the first day Abigail and I went together and it was a success! Toward the end she started getting fussy and didn’t want to be in the car seat any longer; so I took her out while the cashier rang me up. But I knew that once I put her back down she would cry her little eyes out. So while my daughter wailed a very sweet employee helped me out to my car and loaded the groceries for me while I got Abigail situated in the car. One of the reasons I love Harris Teeter (a grocery store I love to coupon at) is because of the super friendly and nice workers. Yay for grocery shopping with Abigail!
