Out and Out reader Jack commented:
Had trouble today for the first time loading my PayPal my cash card with a credit card at CVS.
Once the lady scanned the PayPal My Cash card the computer prompted her as CASH ONLY. She refused my credit card.
Did they finally hardcode?
I wanted to follow up because I had a similar experience here in New York City.
I went to a CVS on Houston Street, handed over 2 PayPal My Cash cards, and requested $500 on each, for a total of $1,007.90 after activation fees.
The cards scanned without a problem, and the total popped up.
Like Jack, I got a similar prompt on the register. I asked if she wouldn’t mind just trying to swipe the card. It wasn’t declined. It simply didn’t process.
She said it looked like cash only – no credit cards allowed.
So I set out to try a store in southern Illinois over the Thanksgiving break.
