After my recent stay at the Andaz Maui, I decided to head over to Oahu.

I stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki (hotel review to follow) but decided to look for some Vanilla Reloads while on the island.

Apparently CVS owns Longs Drugs so all the CVS rules about selling Vanilla Reload so you can load them to you Bluebird card apply. Meaning you are allowed to buy up to $5,000 worth of Vanilla Reloads per day.

I had good luck at 2 different Long’s Drugs stores. The first one being at the Ala Moana mall in the heart of Waikiki. The other one I stopped at was in the less touristy town in Kailua.

As you can see, both of these stores had plenty of Vanilla Reloads in stock.

I didn’t want to go overboard so I only chose to spend $1,000 on my Platinum Delta Amex card, as I’m planning to spend $25,000 to receive the waiver of the Medallion Qualifying Dollar requirement as well as receive the 10,000 bonus MQM’s for meeting the spend threshold.

Have you bought Vanilla Reloads at Longs Drugs in Oahu?

  1. I don’t think you should worry too much about putting lots of VR purchases on your AMEX card. AMEX is making money on the transactions, and I don’t get the impression that they are too concerned about high volume. My partner and I each put about $5k per month of VRs on our DL AMEX card.

  2. Thanks for this post. I’m in Norfolk/VA Bch region and CVS has completely shut off the ability to buy VR with a CC. So I’m looking forward to buying some of these while in Maui. I’ll bring blanks “borrowed” from my local CVS in case they are out.
