Does not work anymore, is dead..... what is the point to report 'not working'?

As of 08/25/2014, Bancorp cards (Vanilla Visa, OneVanilla, etc.) are rarely working first try for debit transactions at Walmart. There is no apparent geographical basis. Basically, it's a crapshoot.

Do not agitate a cashier or store and lose the ability to make these transactions in the future. Multiple failed swipes or transactions will likely increase scrutiny. You do not want that. It is best to stop using these cards.



Vanilla VISA defaulting to credit
As of 5/29/2014, at most Walmart locations, all Vanilla VISA cards issued by The Bancorp Bank are automatically recognized as credit. Most Mastercard have required a workaround for some time. The MoneyCenter Express (ATM, kiosk, Kate) is not affected by this change.

It was only a matter of time.

MS'ers were occupying too much time at customer service loading multiple BBs, and getting 10-30K in MOs in a shot using split tender over and over.

They hogged up WM CS and there was no way WM was going to sit idly by.

I was in WM the other day and one shmuck monopolized a single cashier for more than an HOUR (he was there when I came and was there when I left... in the same spot while the line was 20 people deep).

WM ain't gonna stand for it. The end.

No more MO Purchases using OV @ WM

Lady infront of me just needed to use cancel with ufb so that is relieving it isn't gc specific, rather all debit.

Very good point. Hard to believe someone would do that (well actually its not).

You are so right. It really is not hard to believe based on posts from many (including noobs) and they will end up ruining it for everybody. Why should WM out up with somebody doing that?

Data point - went to my local wm (color screens) and had a cashier well versed in selling me money orders. Hit cancel etc and made it all the way till she hit 'debit' on her side and the register then spit out a piece of paper and canceled the transaction. She tried it a few times - even suggested trying the 'old' method but getting the 'credit card not allowed' message.

Gave up after like 5 tries. Will try the other wm in my area with a mc (and the monochrome screens) to see if it's any better.

I just went to the grocery store down the street and the OV worked just fine there. But the max mo they do is $500 for 69 cents - my MS'ing just doubled in cost :/

It hurts because I seriously feel that sometimes people think Wal-Mart is the only place in the world that sells MO with debit.
In some places, like Chicago, it is the only place, unless you want to spend an hour plus driving to the suburbs. And even there you only have a sparse sprinkling of Meijers. We don't have the same breadth of grocery stores that you do, so for us, WM is the only realistic choice.

If you can suggest someplace else, please PM me.

thats right. But we cannot just be ok with that... and we cannot go around assuming that since that may be the case, we have to LET it happen sooner.

We are supposed to do whatever we can to PROLONG MS, not do whatever it takes to kill it.

Please take out the quoted message of what I wrote to lessen its being in here.

I give this whole shebang like a year.

I bet within 6 months we will see half of what we see now.

I mean... in the last couple weeks alone, the following has occurred:

AS is done --tomorrow (effectively today because anything done on a Sat will post Mon even as debit)

Rumors of CVS going Cash Only as of June (cannot confirm but some stores already have issues with OV and paypal cards... it is currently clerk dependent)

ST may not have DL cards any longer

WMT does its upgrades and kills off the use of anything Incomm by design unless you are lucky enough to be able to hit that elusive cancel button. Doesn't work in all stores.

and I forget whatelse
