Frustration with Virtual Debit Cards from Nestle Candy Rebate
I got my rebate within 5 minutes after submission.
Sounds sweet, right?
Here's the big problem: No local retailer would accept this virtual debit card!
Then I tried to use the card to pay for my eBay purchase. It was declined.
I next tried to buy a gift card on gyft.com. It was declined.
Then I googled this virtual debit card thing and found out that pretty much no one could get the card accepted anywhere.
I emailed the virtual debit card customer service. They told me that my amount was larger than $5, thus declined. They also told me to use the card for online purchases only. I have yet to try my card on purchases lower than $5.
But I read that for many people, the card gets declined even if your total is lower than $5.
Also, it's hard to find something that is $5 or under online! Usually shipping alone is higher than $5.
Has anyone been able to use this card successfully? Any suggestions? TIA
