I have purchased these cards for my employees and have more issues with Vanilla cards than ALL other cards combined! They are rejected for use more often for a myriad of reasons (which are all BS).
Insufficient funds is the biggest complaint; that is of course impossible as the cards were JUST PURCHASED! They also decline use citing "international terrorism" issues. What?!?! Of course, after you make the lousy purchase and want a refund, it will take up to 3-4 weeks AND you get screwed out of your activation fee (typically $6.95)!
Go with ANY OTHER BRAND - AVOID Vanilla like the plague!!! If I help one person avoid this horrible company, I feel I have done some justice.
