UPDATE: The two stores I went to were out and the women told me that she read a memo that credit cards will no longer be allowed starting tomorrow. RIP Vanilla Reloads.
There has been a lot of buzz over the past 24 hours that starting Monday March 31, 2014, CVS stores will no longer allow Vanilla Reload purchases with a credit card – cash only! That really takes the fun out of the game as there will then be no point in purchasing these VR cards. You can check out the memo that was sent to CVS stores here.
While nothing is certain and there is the possibility that some stores still might accept credit cards for a little while, while others might put a stop to it tomorrow.
I am heading out to a few CVS stores today to stock up on possibly my last hurrah of Vanilla Reload purchases. If you’ve been meaning to purchase these VR cards, I suggest heading to CVS today.
If this is the end of it I will sure be sad, but it had a good run.
Let me know if you’ve had any successful experiences at your local CVS!
