When I went to Walgreens earlier this week, I was surprised to see some new (?) Vanilla Reloads appearing. This is what they look like:
Now I was eager to test them out!
I took the card to the cashier, but the card wasn’t a physical thing that you can buy – it simply served as a collection of instructions.
The cashier wanted my PayPal Prepaid MasterCard (for the value load) and swiped this one first. Secondly, he required my driver’s license.
After that, I swiped my credit card and was hopeful that the load would go through. The cashier had no problem with me using a credit card for the transaction.
However, the POS system only accepted my credit card for the $3.95 fee (per value load), not for the amount I wanted to load 🙁
So while it seemed like a great option, it does not work at Walgreens since the POS system won’t allow CC loads. But it may do at other points of sale?
Have you tried before?
