I purchased a prepaid Vanilla MasterCard from Shoppers Drug Mart. As I wish to use it on-line, I went to the vanilla website to register my postal code. The available balance of my card appears to be correct, but when I attempt to enter my postal code on the vanilla website, in order to register it for on-line purchases, the error "invalid postal code" appears.

I have tried the correct format and capitalization, as well as with small letters with and without the space. I have also tried other postal codes, and even a US zip code, but all produce the same error. I even tried using a different browser and a different device, and still encounter the same problem. I'm not willing to wait on the phone for hours (as others have reported), only to be given the run-around.

Lesson Learned: DON'T BUY VANILLA CARDS. Use a different provider for your pre-paid credit.

Reason of review: Damaged or defective.

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia

How do you change the region?


They should just stay with the Vanilla cards because hackers steal everything even if they live in the same house as you, it's so bad


My prepaid vanilla MasterCard has the last 8 digits scratched off and the card is defective. I do not have the original purchase receipt as it was a gift and the company will not replace it. I am not the only person who this has happened to.


Vanillaprepaid.com with old postal code works, 2 year old subdivsion, no good. says invalid. I guess they use a really old database of postal codes.


No it's just that some people have learning disabilities and there partner trys to get them to do something else and not worry about bills or Credit cards or nothing but let you try and be an amazing mother and sit at home with no t.v. Or phone but so they tell it he can have internet but phone and tv are just to much, *** he is in with Spectrum, and I talked to them and they was willing to help me just find , but for some reason my husband got a fire stick off someone he said he don't know his name now but that's bull to but the remote for the fire stick is gone and you can't even get one delived in the US..

Something is up and only my stuff had patent control on my tablet the first tablet I had he broke it and he had one and acted like it just wouldn't come back on, so there roof workers in London Ky, and Tree Tremors too but the boss won't even get on a roof scared to Death..Helton tree service best in town.. Come on


my issue was solved by using a different postal code. I'm from Canada so i'm not sure if this will help U.S.

customers but try it if youre having issues. for some reason my actual postal code wasn't recognized as a real code I guess even though I know for a fact it is.


I had the same problem but then a1a1a1 and it said "Invalid Zipcode" so I tried my Postal Code with Caps A1A1A1 and it accepted it, Not sure if it will work for everyone but it did for me


oh no


Same thing going on with me


Well, that's helpful

*eyes roll*


I don't buy them anymore. The charges are outrageous for one thing, and they rarely work online as well.

Same thing happen to me, because you were using a wrong website and most probably you were checking your postal code on the other website so it kept logging you out . All you have to do is to visit original Vanilla Master Card website I will link the website below , Enjoy :) there is always solution you gotta be smart !

So here you go .... wait read some more lol read read read Good ?! You were really curious you could fix this ?!

Yes ! https://www.vanillaprepaid.com/VanillaPrepaid/home.html?csrfToken=FeUGFkzc8zU0bYk6T3FA2gjUWNG2I8iZ




The above link provided by Anonymous SOLVED EVERYTHING! when i copied the link, it looked the EXACT same as the site the back of my vanilla gift-card linked me to (the one that will not allow me to register).

But when i tried to register on the link from Anon, it WORKED!

then i looked carefully; the two sites LOOK the exact same, but are in fact 2 different addresses (many different numbers and symbols at the end of the full address)

This is an absurd joke of a solution (if i'm looking at VISA vanilla as a business model), but I muse praise Anonymous for this surprising solution. Believe me when i Say my vanilla card would NOT allow me to register a postal code....I tried everything and some other stuff; this simple clone (original?) of the vanilla gift-card site solved it instantly....amazing.

Oh; I have had nothing but grief with Vanilla VISA; avoid these cards if you want them for online shopping (from what I've read and heard, you should just avoid them flat-out and complain to anyone who may have something to do with vanilla VISA). Due to utterly inept implementation or maintenance--whatever the issue is--these cards are trouble.


Fishing site. Do not use your card on that site or else they will use your balance!


still not working


Yeah still not working for me urghh


Thank you sooooo much! helped a lot


Don't do it. Fishing site. Dont get scammed
