Some stores used to work but not any more. Looks like there is some kind of system upgrade.

But I guess it is serviced by Incomm so maybe that is why it works.
That is exactly why they work. The BHN Meta GC no longer work for MOs at Walmart or grocery stores.

Is there a delay or something on the Incomm Vanilla Gift cards sold at Vons/Safeway being usable online? I just bought one 45 mins ago and I'm trying to pay my insurance with it, and it's being rejected as "Debit Card is invalid." The card shows a full balance so it's not a question of funds, and there's no option to register the card with an address on the Vanilla Gift website like there is with other gift cards.

Edit: It finally worked 1 hr after purchase. Very odd.

I buy VGC from Safeway n liquidate within 10 minutes in store for MO…..no lag time for activation. You may have to register InComm card for use online? Most GC require registration to use online

Whew! It worked. I've been trying for the last hour unsuccessfully, but at exactly 1 hour past the original purchase time...it worked. Hmm...

FWIW, I bought 3 just now and the one with a 2030 expiration date went though 5 mins after purchase, the other two with 2029 dates not working at anything (but shows as valid). I wonder whats going on

Are you trying to use the non working one online? Could be a delay for online use…for whatever crazy reason. My Safeway cards are good to drain immediately in store for MO after purchase. Lobo411 had delay of 1 hour when using online.

FYI….Unless you are getting extra points or perks for GC grocery purchases with your cc, you can save $1 by buying same cards at CVS…..$6.95 vs $5.95 fee at CVS.

same here, 2 SSs with 2029 expy date can't liquidate after 15 min purch earlier today; called the # to get an alert that it'll be 40 min or so to use 🤔

so, ya'll think those with 2030 expy date still work as usual for now?

1 hr delay like GDVGCs @ WM; as these Incomm cards can't get registered or secured, I'll likely go back to kroger

I bought two at CVS and drained them within an hour in SW on 4/9. I usually never check the card expy date before buying but I will when buy again on 4/18 at CVS.

Interesting DPs about different expy dates on cards having different activation times.

No I only do in-store. Worked just fine on my way home a few hours later.

First time I've come across it, but if it's YMMV based on store, I stopped by a Safeway that I haven't visited in ages and have no basis for comparison.

For me, the 2030 card worked immediately, the 2029s took some time before working.

But my safeway still has it for $5.95.
