This weekend I thought I would stop by my local CVS store to check to see if they had any Vanilla Reloads in stock.
I’ve been here before and sometimes it can be hit or miss, but it was the beginning of the month so I wanted to start buying some Vanilla Reloads to load onto my Bluebird® by American Express, since the limit is $5,000 per month
As I walked into this CVS, I headed to the main gift card rack, and lo and behold, the ONLY gift cards that they were out of stock were the Vanilla Reloads.
However, as I was about to head out empty handed, the CVS representative asked me if I was looking for anything. I mentioned I was here to buy Vanilla Reloads and he told me to come with him.
He brought up to the register and had a few stacks of them behind there. He then started ringing me up for one, and I mentioned like I would like to buy 4 of them.
No problem at all, however after the first $1,000 he did scan my ID into their computer, as this is a new policy.
The moral of the story is that if you don’t see the Vanilla Reloads on the shelf, I would go up and ask the cashier if they have any behind the register.
At this CVS, there was no indication on the gift card shelf that you should go up to the register and ask for Vanilla Reloads, so you must be proactive if you want Vanilla Reloads.
