I bought 2 X 75$ vanilla gift cards, the receip shows that I was charged for the activation of both. I gave them 3 days later and they BOTH NEVER WORKED.
Even when I enter the number on Visa's website it says it's invalid. I had to contact their customer service, they were little short of rude and idiotic, asking me if I was sure the card were really paid for in the first place...
I had to fax them the 2 cards and then wait to have replacements more than a week later, only to find out that they both have the same issue AGAIN, so I would have to start again... That's unacceptable !
Meanwhile I've been buying prepaid mastercards with no issue for years...
This was the last time I ever bought anything from Visa !
