Where to buy Vanilla Reload Cards

UPDATE 11/26/2012: On the weekend of November 10th 2012, Office Depot stopped selling Vanilla Reload cards.  As a result, most of the information below is now out of date.  See Office Depot discontinues Vanilla Reload cards and The reload game is on.

In recent posts, I’ve shown ways to earn 5X everywhere by buying Vanilla Reload Cards at Office Depot with an Ink Bold card and then loading the money to either an American Express Prepaid card or a reloadable debit card such as the ill fated NetSpend card.’  See ‘€œOne card to rule them all,’€ ‘€œNetSpend challenges the throne,’€ and ‘€œWe’€™re sorry, there is a problem with your account‘€ for details.

VanillaReload

For this trick to work, though, it’€™s necessary to find an Office Depot that sells Vanilla Reload cards, has them in stock, and allows you to buy them with a credit card.’  The table below shows what I’ve learned so far from readers regarding each of those points.’  The date shown is not the date of purchase, but rather the date in which the result was reported to me.’  In some cases you’€™ll see multiple entries for the same city because I’ve entered in data from multiple people, dates, or locations (within the city).

Reader input

If you have experience good or bad with buying Vanilla Reload cards, please report it in the comments below, including the location of the store, and I’€™ll do my best to keep this table up to date.’  I’€™m also particularly interested in finding stores other than Office Depot that sell these (or other reload cards) and allow you to use credit cards for the purchase.

UPDATE Nov 8 2012

Ever since Bluebird launched, stores have begun to sell out of inventory more quickly than before.  As a result, it doesn’t make much sense for me to keep updating this table – it’s out of date by the time I do so!  Instead, please continue to report your findings in the comments below, and use your browser’s search feature to find information about stores in your area.

Also note that since this was written, new stores have been found to carry Vanilla Reload cards.  Most notably, some CVS and Walgreens stores carry them and, of those, some allow credit cards.  Also see VanillaReload.com and hover your mouse over “Reload Locations” to get ideas of other places to look.

1) will citi AA card code them as purchases
2) Vanilla visa cards cannot be added to amex prepaid permanent card ?
3) if no to the above question is there a visa equivalent of amex prepaid permanent card ?

Chris:
Call this number to talk to someone @ Chase and get a status on your Ink card. If you are approved they can overnight it to you and you can receive it as soon as the next day (this recently happened to me). If you have a trip or reason to use the card soon, they will expedite it for free.

There are 2 simple ways to reload your card:

This is from the Vanilla Reload FAQs. Maybe it’s referring to new cards but it sounds like old cards might be included. It’s the “add” funds terminology that’s tripping me up.

Buy a Vanilla Reload Network Card:

Swipe your Prepaid Card at Retail:

1Bring your prepaid card to one of the Vanilla Reload participating retail locations.
2Present your card to the retail clerk and let them know you want to add funds to (reload) your card (* typically a $3.95 fee applies)
3The clerk will take your cash, ring up the sale, and swipe your prepaid card
4Your card is loaded instantly and ready for use!

FrequentMiler
Guest

Rick C: The second option means that you can bring your prepaid card (Amex, Netspend, Mio, etc) to certain locations and simply have them reload the card directly without a Vanilla reload card in the mix. I’ve never tried that, but I should…

OD South side of Chicago – still a bunch left, picked up a couple, assistant manager at register states “Chase Ink again, whats the deal withe these cards, is there a promo going on? Too many people buy these with this chase card”

Enjoy it while it lasts!

Bought a Vanilla reload card at the Office Depot on 3rd St. in San Francisco. Using a credit card to pay for it required manager intervention, but no hassles beyond that.

This is helping me meet some large spend requirements I have over the next few months. The ATM withdrawal capability is hugely helpful here.

I tried to buy a Vanilla Prepaid Reload card at Dollar General. There was no scratch off box on the back only a barcode. When they scanned the barcode they were told to swipe my card. I was trying to reload my prepaid American Express card. When they swiped by prepaid American Express they received an error message that said “Invalid Merchant”. I was unable to load my American Express Prepaid card although the Amex symbol was featured on the front of the Vanilla Reload pack.

RIP – Bought the last 5 at my local OD, South side Chicago, cashier recognized me and said that “you and another guy always come to buy them”.

I asked him about when they will re-stock, checked the system, and stated that most likely will discontinue.

Told me that OD have a problem with stolen cards and “cloned” cards, explained about home made cards, steal your numbers but put a name with matching ID…..anyways, I hope that they come back.

UPDATE:

I got my IB and other 2=UME & SP shut down 2 days ago.

I couldn’t log in and thats when I knew something went wrong. Called and spoke to reps but they had no exact explaination as to why I am banned. The 4rth Manager I spoke to yesterday asked me whats and whys about my IB usage at OD in the last 3 months. But he told me no one has authority to restore banned accounts. It f***kin sucks! I did use my cards for other purchases too and paid off full balance due weeks before due date.

I will try opening new chase CC next year and see if it works.
If you want relationship with with this company, Stay away from OD trips.

Office Depot Dublin and San Ramon, CA. Both had about 6 in stock. Was able to buy using Bold CC. When I bought second batch of cards in the second OD location, my CC was flagged and they had to call in – but got immediate approval.

What I didn’t realize is the OneVanilla Prepaid card isn’t reloadable so all the MyVanilla Prepaid Reload cards I bought wouldn’t work on the prepaid OneVanilla Prepaid card – what a confusing mess. Went to Safeway and bought $20 Paypal Reloadable and used the $500 MyVanilla reloads from Office Depot. OD didn’t seem to have any reloadable CC that could take advantage of the MyVanilla reload cards – very odd and confusing.

The Dublin Office Depot did have reloadable Amex, (San Ramon was out) which I will use for Costco purchases.

Evanston, IL…was in the area, decided to check the OD there. The AMEX display was full of Prepaid cards but Vanilla Reload was empty, ready to leave until I saw way in the bottom 8 cards, bought all of them with a non chase card. Cashier checked ID, stated new policy from loss control was to ring each one separate.. annoying, but got all of them through with a combination of cards. Not sure if they will restock, but this store is now out of vanilla reloads.

purchased some today with non-chase card at OD on W. Fullerton (chicago). They had several cards (excluding the 10 or so I found hidden in a different location). The cashier asked if I was using a chase card. When I said “no” she said okay because they now how to call in all chase purchases for approval (but you can still purchase with chase). Don’t worry if you are the person that “stored” the cards in a different location. I left them where I found them.

After striking out at 2 Walgreens, I had success at a 3rd. This purchase was not without drama. First the card reader at the register would not work. I was sent to a different register and swiped my Barclay Mastercard (wanted something non Amex). No go. My card was denied and I came home to a call from fraud protection. Next, I tried my freedom card. Success! I will go back in few days to try out some other cards. Even though I will only get 1x for these purchases, its still better than nothing for bill pay (mortgage, utilities etc).

Bob: At my local Dollar General, they have a different kind of Vanilla Reload card. These cards are scanned at the register and used right there to move money to a reloadable debit card (not Bluebird). It works with MyVanilla and Mio, for example. They don’t allow credit cards. Is your Dollar General different?

Bob

My Dollar General sold me the last of their Vanilla’s with a scratch off pin number on the card and somehow they accepted a credit card. Went back today and they now have only the reload display card and will not accept credit cards. Store manager said the system is being converted over to not accept CC. I stopped at a CVS and the manager assured me that they would accept a CC with two forms of i.d. But they are out of Vanilla reloads.

I have had three different experiences trying to purchase a VR at Walgreens. At one, I was able to purchase cards without any problem. At another, I was sternly told by the cashier that it can only be paid with cash. At the third, I was able to convince them to let me purchase it with a CC but my Hawaiian Airlines visa only rang up the 3.95 charge. They said “Sorry. See? Only cash”. I asked if I could try a different card but they wouldn’t do it.

While I was waiting I heard the “manager” on a call telling someone they were out of Vanilla Reload cards. I was looking at some on the rack as he was speaking. Wish the load limit was higher than $5000 per month per card. Property tax bills are in. Have Bluebird for me and my husband and enjoyed paying bills today. Had to remember to stop automatic bank payments when paying with Bluebird. Going to hate paying bills from bank accounts now.

I believe OD has discontinued. I went last week to verify that my OD carried them. There were plenty in stock. I received my BlueBird yesterday so I went today to actually purchase some VR’s and they aren’t there at all. That section had been replaced with Amex prepaid cards. It looked like they were phased out; went to another OD a few miles away and same story. They’re no there and there was no display showing where they would be stocked. Called the 3rd OD in town and was told that they didn’t have the VR, only pre-paids.

I went to my OD store and was told the cards were killed Nov. 10th. with a memo to remove them from the racks.

I spoke with an OD dude. I have no idea if any of this is true, but he suspected new OD investors who own 12% of the company didn’t like the VR cards. He also said people were buying stacks of them at a time. Noted that people were using them somehow to get cash in areas affected by NY area superstorm Sandy. (I find the last tidbit odd but who knows.)

The cards are gone, they even taken out of the POS system so you can’t load up with blanks at CVS and drive over expecting to use them, LOL. He said the VR cards came up as a ‘sale’ in the OD POS system rather than a ‘gift card’ so they may have been the cause of some accounting confusion.

All the other Vanilla products are there and he said the VR cards may return in the future.

So we shall see. For now I’m buying OneVanilla Visa cards there.

All the Walgreen’s in Grand Junction and Fruita, CO are no goes! They only take cash, not even debit! Office Depot is a no as well! They pulled all the cards a couple of weeks ago!

I went to the dollar general here and you can but vanilla reloads with a credit card (I’m not concerned as much with points as I am with meeting my spend) but the cashier and manager both could not figure out how to do the transaction. The register kept telling them to swipe the card, but there is nothing to swipe! They tried entering the bar code number manually, but it gave them a declined message. Any advice on what either they or I are doing wrong?
