CVS stores in Cleveland were coded today to no longer take credit cards for Vanilla Reload and other reloadable cards:
The cashier was very nice and even tried cards like Vanilla Reload and Vanilla MVD for me, but they were all were denied for credit card purchase.
OneVanilla and other Visa cards were able to be purchased by credit card. Those have a $4.95 fee for $500 and can be loaded to Bluebird at Walmart, used for money orders, etc.
In some regions of the country the rollout will happen tomorrow or on the 4th, so buy them while you can! If your store will rollout the changes on the 4th you can still purchase $5,000 now, $5,000 after 8pm tonight, and another $5,000 after 8pm tomorrow night. Those are per person limits. Only purchases of $1,000 are limited based on your driver’s license, purchases of $999.99 or less are unlimited.
