Can't Use Last 99 Cents on Visa GCs?

Trying to use use the last 51 cents on a Vanilla Visa GC, as part of a split transaction, the clerk says she can't ring up a transaction for less than $1.00.

Is this true for all GCs, Visa GCs, or......?

most cell phone and cable providers want to match up at least the Zip Code, so you have to register the card with the Cardinals

I just tried Verizon. They won't allow me to pay less than $1. Presumably Amazon has a minimum too?
