Default Using ISIS to purchase gift cards...

Has anyone had any luck at CVS (or elsewhere) purchasing gift cards or vanilla reloads with ISIS? I've only tried one CVS so far, but they flat out denied me using ISIS to buy any gift cards...they said it was store policy that I would have to use cash.

A lot of ppl seem to be having no problem doing it so I'm guessing it's just strictly local store policy. I fought with the manager stating that it's EXACTLY like cash and that the funds came directly out of my bank account, but they didn't budge. :-\

You mind telling me what area you live in? I'm hoping it was just that specific store. It's such a stupid ass store policy that they will only take cash for ANY gift card.

It's not even the amount that bothered them (I want to buy a $500 reload to get a quick $100 back, then do it again another day to get the max $200). Ugh. I know some Rite Aid stores have paypass but then they'd have to have gift cards too, and not the dumb cash only policy...

Just did the same today at CVS. Walgreens denied me, but because they said they had the terminals turned off because there was too much fraud. Not exactly sure what was going on, but CVS was happy to take my money. And I'm happy to get the $200 cash back.

Awesome also don't forget about the extra $50 you can get for direct depositing $250 twice into your serve acct. This can be easily done with PayPal. Just set up the serve card as a bank within PayPal with the routing and acct# given on the serve website. Another $50 for freeeee.

I went to the VZW store and used it to pay my $250 bill... got 50 back plus 10 for using at the Verizon store.
