Don't use Visa Gift Cards to pay

I had hoped to use the Visa Gift Card to purchase the ANYDVD. I checked and double checked. I got some kid on customerservice who was adamat that you could use the VISA Gift Card to purchase online overseas. So I went to CVS Pharmacy and bought their Vanilla Visa Gift Card. Thats all they had. Nothing on the outside of the package contradicted what I was told on the phone. I opened my package looked at the card and the info paper that came with it and read that to use card for internet purchases I must go online and register with name and addrfess. Fine. BUT THEN there it was, the infomation that said I CANNOT USE THE CARD FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES ONLINE. Naturally I am ticked off but why should I be. At my age I should know by now that these companies seldom know what the other hand is doing. :a
Don’t try protecting yourself by useing the VISA Gift card on international purchases.

Thanks for the heads up old.katz. That information will help us in the future.

I’m going to move this to the Bargain Basement, which is our forum for purchasing information.
