Not recommended: Red Cross and many facilities in US will not accept products from pay-for-donate locations. This is due to the concern that a potential donor might not be totally honest in the history questions if seeking $$ and this could contaminate the blood supply. Volunteer donors have no motivation to not provide direct answers.
