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.

Non-updated color systems still good? Older, monochrome systems still good?
My WM still uses black & white screen pad & I had this issue. (after update)

Well, the cash out is always an issue. I appreciate that everyone has a different take, but, spend down? Get out of the game? Hard to hear it but if you can't spend down what you float, it's bound to catch up to you at some point.

I'd try a different Walmart. Worst case: drive to that target.

Something seems to have changed today... I had issues reloading my Serve card with OV's (see my post in the Serve thread).

I think newuo is really MM in an alter ego pulling our chains.

He will soon recap the whole drama in a new song. Maybe we should be helping him with a title for the new tune. !!??!!

7. Enter $500
8. Authorized
I pressed cancel, but maybe it wasn't fast enough. Do you press the physical cancel button or the cancel button on the screen? And how fast were you pressing it after the swipe?

Another post also mentioned that the cashier cannot press anything on their end until we enter the PIN. Was that what you experienced?

Glad it worked but I hope you heard. There were a lot of people here telling you to slow down, pause, or rethink what you are doing. If one glitch causes this much worry for you it's not a "hobby" or "extra addition" with a goal in mind.

Unsuccessful BB load at WM Kiosk

Just got back from my local WM where I was able to successfully load my BB with OV earlier this week using the Kiosk. Today however, after going through the entire transaction at the Kiosk, I received an error message at the end with a receipt that says 'Debit not approved. Call Authorizer'.

I then tried my luck with a human at the Money Center and he said the OV card was going through as credit and not debit.

Frustrated, I left and came home to check this thread....hope this a short term glitch and not something permanent.

This is like watching a bad horror movie. Entertaining but you know how it ends.
