There are far too many outlets on the high street where it's possible to get yourself a Visa Gift Card to be able to mention all of them here. All the usual chains throughout America such as Walgreens, Safeway, Blockbuster as well as financial institutions such as Wells Fargo and Chase among many others offer Visa Gift Cards.
Visa Gift Cards are also available online, and a list of online retailers can be found at the aforementioned website address by choosing the 'on line' option instead.
A Visa Gift Card is a card that allows the recipient a predetermined set amount of money to spend, this amount cannot be topped up at a later date and once the credit on the card has been spent it is no longer worth anything. One drawback of the card is that some merchants may not be able to tell you the balance of the card, so the advice given is to personally keep track of your balance by watching what you spend. If the cost of goods or services purchased exceeds the remaining balance of the card then it is possible to pay the difference via an alternative method of payment such as regular debit or credit card, bankers' check or cash.
