I was just in my local Walmart and stopped by the in store 1st Convenience Bank. The rate is still the artificial program rate of 1170. However the clerk asked me how many I had, I gave her a low number and her eyes got very large. She smiled and said you are going to be very happy. I asked why. She told me they had been told that the rate is going to change and to be ready for people showing up to cash in.
She asked if I wanted to open an account or if she could have her manager call me.
(of course for security reasons I did not yet open an account or give her manager my contact info - I have a throw-away phone for that but did not have the number with me. I think I will go back later and give her that number just to see how long it takes the manager to call and what he has to say.
Peace -- Have an awesome Sat!!!
