ive been keeping up with the thread havent seen it answer but dont think its possible

Yeah, I know what you mean. I've developed this, shall we say, "Multiple Personality Disorder" recently!

In the last 24 hours I've looked at 10+ CVS, 3 OD and 3 Walgreens in San Diego and no sign of Vanilla cards. Anyone knows some place where they still have them and sell with credit cards? I don't need bonus points, just to clear up some spending requirements

You do know someone would have to be able to spend over $50k in OD to make that $2500 break even, never mind profitable, right? I'll bid $2.50

Half the CVS's I've been to have had Vanilla Reload cards, and 100% of the stores with VRs have accepted credit cards.

Oh, I've been to two CVS locations.

Too many FTers here - like I said upthread, I saw one person clean out an entire stack of VR at an OD earlier in the week.

I think it's just a matter of time before it rolls out. I've been checking out CVS daily since Monday and finally had some luck tonight at the local CVS - meeting my minimum spends as well. All the ones I went to earlier in the week (4 separate locations) had already cleared out space on the rack for them.

If you don't live near a Walmart, the prepaid cards aren't any good for Bluebird -- unless the prepaid card can be registered as a debit and accepted by Bluebird as debit.

I think I may have used the wrong zip code (I wasn't looking at my bill, I was looking at another document) when I setup the billpay to my Wells Fargo mortgage. The system still took the zip code though so I'm curious as to what's going to happen to my money. Should I call Bluebird or Wells Fargo? Perhaps both?
