| | Reloadable Visa Card
I have found what might work out as a good reloadable Visa Card. I got it at the local CVS pharmacy. They are everywhere in my town. They sell a Green Dot reloadable pre-paid Visa card - with a minimum investment of $20.00. Here is the deal. You have to give them your real name, address & SS# to activate the card - but they allow you to have a second card for friends or family. So I put the name I came up with for one of my PAYPAL accounts needing a CC. Now, they have my correct mailing address - actually my P.O. Box -to mail the actual cards to, but still unusable for eBay or PAYPAL. However, there is a way to update -or change your billing address - so my plan is to wait to get my cards, then go onto the site and change my billing address to the one I have with my PAYPAL account. Since I have to re-load it at one of their retail locations - what is there to "bill" to me? Anyway, it isn't immediate - but I just think that it might work and I really want a reloadable card to pay fees with. If this works - I will get more. So far, I only have $20.00 invested in it and I can use this for whatever I want. They give you your CC # immediately so you can use it for online purchases right away. Has anyone tried this? I am not crazy about them having my real name and SS# but I don't think that they will share this with PP or eBay since it will be used with the name that I gave for the second card. I will keep you informed if this works - but any thoughts?
