Yes, it is possible to buy a Vanilla Visa with a credit card, but it depends on the type of the card you want and where you decide to buy it from. More specifically, there are two types of Vanilla Visa cards:
Buying a Vanilla Visa Gift Card with a Credit Card
You can buy a Vanilla Visa Gift Card with a credit card online, through vanillagift.com, as long as your card isn’t on the Mastercard network. More specifically, they accept cards from the rest of the four major credit card networks (Visa, American Express, etc.) as a payment method.
You can also buy a Vanilla Visa Gift Card in-store, at participating merchant locations. However, there is a chance the merchant doesn’t accept credit cards as a payment method. Some popular merchants that accept credit cards for gift card purchases are CVS, Walmart, and Walgreens.
Buying a MyVanilla Prepaid Card with a Credit Card
You can buy a MyVanilla Prepaid Card with a credit card at participating merchant locations. However, as with the Vanilla Visa Gift Card, some merchants might not accept credit cards. So, it is best to ask them beforehand.
