As I mentioned in my post last week, Adventures in CVS Vanilla Reloads, it’s quite difficult finding any reload cards here in NYC. Well, I stopped in a Walgreens just a few moments ago and noticed 4 Vanilla Reload cards on the very bottom shelf next to the regular VISA gift cards. I took one and paid using my Hilton AMEX (6x points at drug stores). There is no self-checkout and the register required a manager to ring the purchase with a credit card. It didn’t seem to be a problem at all and the manager mentioned he had never seen the reloads before (somehow this store or the manger has been absent from the Vanilla reload game). I asked if they expected anymore in stock soon and he actually went in the back and checked his expected orders, unfortunately only regular VISA gift cards on the way through January. Anyway, I couldn’t find a section on the rack marked Vanilla Reloads and it looked like these were just thrown up there from storage. I’ve left three cards for any readers here in New York. It’s the Walgreens on 36h and 3rd. Enjoy and please leave a comment if you pick one up!
UPDATE – No cards remaining
