I picked up the Vannila Card and for 25 dollars from rite aid.
I popped the numbers in and it worked fine for me.
The only problem I have now is I had to use the 20 dollar option, and with only 5 left on the card... theres no five dollar option.
For everyone that bought a vanilla visa, check your receipts and make sure the card was activated!
Back in my younger years, I worked at a Rite aid for about 2 years. Sometimes they don't send out the batch activations untill the end of the day, in which case it will still take time for them to activate.
NOTE! the above is only if your out in the sticks somewhere. If your intercity, they should get sent right over the network no prob.
Hopefully that might help someone!
Good luck yall!
one more thing for the vanilla card...
I used my address, but for the name I used what was printed on the card... "A GIFT FOR YOU"
Also for the "green dot" crew.
Green dot cards cost a surcharge of 9.95 every time you put money on, and in most states, a monthy fee for keeping it active.
You also have to call them to activate it and give them your name address and SS#. So if your a fan of security... might not be a good way to go.
