Well, I truly hope that this is a regional thing, but here’s a copy of the CVS memo to store managers informing them that stores will no longer accept credit cards for Vanilla Reloads and MyVanilla cards. The effective date is 3/31. I just visited a CVS store on Long Island and had no problem buying multiple VR cards. Let’s see what happens tomorrow though. The memo is from a Florida store, but supposedly stores in NJ are have received the same. The letter indicates that registers will be hard coded to reject non cash payments. I’m hoping this might take time to spread to all regions and that it is not company wide but if not, I’m certainly happy I started on the required 10K on the AAThe Citi Executive AAdvantage World MasterCard early.
