Just as a quick update for those who happen to have easy access to OneVanilla Visa Debit Gift Cards. I can confirm there are no problems getting rid of the them via Amazon Payments.
A few helpful tips to make your liquidating life simpler. Be sure once you have obtained them that you register your zip code on the OneVanilla card.
The next step. When you go to add the OneVanilla card to your Amazon Payments page they tend to do a $1 hold or test charge on the card. To avoid this just enter the card and the wrong expiration date as you see above. Then, go right back in and edit the card to the correct date and make the Amazon Payment and all should go well for the full amount you have on the VDGC.
Why even bother with OneVanilla cards you ask (vs preferably going direct with AX GCs you got from say TopCashBack earning 3% plus points on whatever card you like)? Well under most cases 7-11 stores will “code” as a gas station. So, if you happen to have a Discover IT card or a Chase Freedom card you can get 3x$500 of these for the current 5% bonus spend category and then over time (max $1000 per month) unload the One Vanillas this way! – René
EDIT: As a reader pointed out to me via email – be sure to REGISTER for the current month promo’s BEFORE you buy cards! 🙂
