Topic Wiki

Since Vanilla Reloads are no longer able to be purchased with a CC at CVS or any other location, this thread is for historical purposes only.

If I would write where VR is available, by tomorrow it will never be available again. So instead, we will nominate this thread as the place where everyone can complain that there's no VR, and everyone will be happy.

And it was good.


Regarding OneVanilla (OV) and other Vanilla branded GCs:

1. These are not Vanilla Reloads. You are in the wrong thread to learn about them.

2. As long as you are here, they no longer work at WM to load to BB at the cashier or ATM, nor will they work there for MOs. Your best bets are to use Evolve (there is a thread for that), Amazon Payments (there is a thread for that, too), or use them for regular spending in stores or online. At some grocery stores customer service desks, you can use OV to buy a MO.

It doesnt matter what amounts you are putting through the cards. If you add over 1k and cycle it, they will come after you so you may as well do the limit of $9999. a few times before they flag your MVD account

what happens when they flag your account? i got stopped today, and they are determining whether to let me do 1 last CA or turn the card into a gift card making me spend the $$ down. If that happens, can I just buy a money order?

I just found a CVS in Brooklyn last week with loads of vanilla reloads. they limit the payment to only from 1 CC.
does anyone know how Barclay's classify this transaction? do they treat it as a regular purchase or as a cash advance?

Regular purchase.  I've bought tons on my Lufthansa card.
