Usually you can go to a check cashing place like Western Union or similar, and get a card that you put money on. It still has the card logo so places will accept it, there's just a small fee each time you load it. Some stores have racks with various gift cards too including prepaid ones with set amounts. They have the logo too, so it should work.

A lot of people on the official forum say they use a prepaid for their subscriptions and have no problems.

I have a friend that used to use a pre-paid card, personally I'd never seen them before. :mrgreen:

It's Walmart.. so might just want to make sure they did it right. They have to activate it at checkout and all that. I have really bad experiences at Walmart, so I wouldn't trust that they did their part ;)

Kind of makes sense.. they want you to spend the money there. The joys of Walmart ;)

I hope you figure something out.
