Do NOT buy these cards for yourself or anyone else.

I have the same issue as the previous person (http://www.ripoffreport.com/credit-card-processing-ach-companies/vanilla-visa-giftcar/vanilla-visa-giftcard-incomm-f7ca1.htm).  In my case, I was given $200 Vanilla Visa Gift Cards for Xmas.  Everywhere I have tried using these cards, they are rejected with no explanation.  I can't use them for Amazon.com, Gas, Groceries...  I have read online that the only places these might work is at fast food restaurants.   But I don't really want $200 worth of burgers and fries.  But if it comes down to letting these people keep my money indefinitely or hitting the drive-thru, I guess that's what I'll have to do.

I was contacted and we were able to get this resolved. I had 'register' a zip code to the card. Once I did that we got the cards clearing everywhere.

Quick Question...

AUTHOR: Edgeman - (U.S.A.)

Did you register the card with the Vanilla Visa website? I sometimes use them for internet purchases when I don't want to use an actual credit card number and they never work until I register them. It's pretty quick though and you don't even need to give your home address.

I have found they work on Amazon, Steam, etc...
