Get Your Vanilla Visa Gift Card Balance

If you already have one of these giftcards you can access your card balance and account spending history online at their official website at Once you access your account you will be able to see your balance and easily keep track of what the value amount of what you have bought and how much dollar value is remaining on the card. If you are still not able to get to your card history account, you can call customer service at 800-571-1376.

Use the card just like a normal credit or debit card. The only difference is that you will only be able to spend up to the amount that was prepaid or loaded onto the giftcard. If you would like to purchase something valued at more than your current balance, just use the amount that is remaining and cover the rest of the purchase amount with another form of payment such as another credit card, check or cash.

To use your card, just make your merchandise or product selection and then upon checkout just present your card and sign the receipt. It can be used to purchase products and services anywhere that Visa debit cards are accepted. The card will be activated the first time you use it to make a purchase. These cards are not returnable nor reloadable. Full details and frequent questions can be found at their official website.

See the website at to activate, register or get your giftcard balance amount.

      What is not known is that you can't use the Vanilla Visa on Ebay or on paypal which is frustrating. i would NEVER have purchased it if I had known that but will be sure to tell everyone I know. I don't want them facing the same problems that I did.

      AVOID vanilla visa cards; they expire shortly after purchase and they must be used almost immediately to enjoy the full balance.
