Default Stay away from Gift2go Prepaid Cards

I followed the recommendation in eBay Stealth to use gift2go cards and I used it to verify my paypal account. Well immediately after I verified my account paypal charged $1 on my card and limited my account for "unusual charges" on my credit card. Now they want me to verify my credit card, phone number, and theyre asking for my social security number. Now a perfectly good checking account along with $30 from purchasing that gift card has been wasted.

You've been in the forums for awhile.. and you just decided to create an account?

Gift2go prepaid cards hasn't prompted limitation like this in the past, most likely it was something else that did it. Try using Simon gift accounts, I've been using them for years and they never let me down.

Safeway used to offer allaccess cards which were good but a year or two ago they stopped selling them and now the only places that do are the rare one or two "cash loan" places and it's always really uncomfortable buying them in there.

Another thing to look out for is that gift2go themselves have been known to limit your gift card as well, after registering your name and address with them. It may not always happen but just like paypal accounts they do have the option and have used it plenty of times so why even risk it? I posted a previous warning about these cards a while back. Any giftcard company that does this quite shady.

I use Gift2Go cards with ALL my accounts and have been for a while.....
I have NEVER had a Paypal or eBay account limited or NARUed for using them.

It sounds like there is more to your story than a simple credit card.....?????

The only problem I've ran into is that if you buy it at the store, the cashiers really really really hate to sell them and if they do, they want you to pay cash.

Sadly the OP has not been back online to give more info. Too many are having success with this card. Guess we need to wait for an update

Default Got wrong Gift2Go card?

Hi

I've had a really hard time finding the right card! I'm in a rural area and there aren't a lot of choices. CVS only had VanillaVisa. Gas stations tend to have AllAccess and green dot. Man, I read the posts over and over and it's a good thing because EVERYWHERE I go there are cards on the "do not use" lists.

One post recommended the Gift2Go yellow card so I've been looking for that one. There's only 1 Walgreens around here (25 miles away). The only yellow ones they had were $100 but they had a Gift2Go happy birthday one for $25. I got the HB one and registered it last night with my new stealth info. I just tried to use it to pay for netzero and nz won't accept it, they say invalid number / can't verify the customer name.

Does anyone know if I can use this card to setup pp and eb or is it the wrong one?

That one should be fine. I used a Happy Bday Gift2Go card a few months ago and it worked the same as the yellow ones. Could be Netzero knows it isn't a real credit card they'll be able to keep charging.

Edit: Nevermind I just read Gift2Go cards might be dead, waiting for confirmation.

gift2go.net is down. It appears the domain is expired even though whois information shows expiration in 2010.

You sure it's not your browser cache?

No it's not my cache, because I can go to all the links on the site and it's my first time ever going there.
