Vanilla or chocolate? I can't tell you which one I prefer more, though my personal preference is chocolate. It's not the particular brand or the richness of the chocolate that makes it my “taste bud” of choice; rather, it's the sentimental value that chocolate has for me. That's why when I received a “My Vanilla” perfume from Bvlgari, I knew I had found something special.
This past February, at the start of my third month of credit card debt, I decided to cancel my vanilla card without registering for anything. It was easy to do. Instead of going online, I simply went to the website of one of the major credit card companies and filled out a simple form. An automatic e-mail was sent to my account with details of my pending transactions and a link to an online form to complete.
After I submitted the form, it was only a matter of a few minutes before the security code appeared on the screen. The security code is part of the attraction to a “Vanilla” credit card – no need to register for anything or enter any information. Once the code is entered, the balance of the Vanilla Visa Card is immediately activated (it's not until someone calls you to ask you for information about your account that the balance goes to zero). At the same time, the Vanilla Visa Card account is deactivated and the amount withdrawn from my checking account (minus the transaction fee) is deposited in my savings account. At the end of the month, the Vanilla Visa Card company will call me and ask me to sign a paper copy of a security code sent by my bank, so they can activate my account again. (A Vanilla debit card is just like a regular credit card and has the same features as a normal card.)
My experience with “My Vanilla” made me decide to give it a try. A few days later, I went online and tried to withdraw some money from my checking account. When I tried to add an account balance, the website directed me to a page with a different signup process. I followed the same steps as I did when I activated my “My Vanilla” account, entering my security code, and the process was the same as before.
How do I check the balance on my vanilla prepaid visa card online? You probably see a lot of websites with a padlock icon or a “lock” symbol at the bottom right corner of your screen. This lock protects your account from unauthorized changes to your account. This way, you can make changes to your account online without having to be locked out of your account!
The “My Vanilla” system has helped me manage my funds better, and that's the reason why I recommend it to others. It allows me to see the status of my account transactions and make payments on them when they are due. If you have never seen a “My Vanilla” tab, you will see a small tab beside the amount you have in your account. You need to enter your security code in that tab to access your account balance and make payments.
My” Vanilla” prepaid visa card is linked to my Vanilla Visa card, so whenever I make a purchase with the card number I show for the purchase is added to my “My Vanilla” page. Whenever I make a payment, the amount shown in my “My Vanilla” page is updated and added to my account balance. I only have to make purchases with my” Vanilla” card number once to activate my” Vanilla” login privileges. Once my “Vanilla” account has been activated, the shopping cart function enables me to choose the items I would like to buy from a list. Since I have control over the details of my shopping cart, I can choose items that my visitors can buy with my debit or credit card.
After all of my testing, it is clear to me that My Vanilla prepaid card is the best way to manage expenses on the Internet. When you have control over your spending and payments, it becomes easier to manage your budget. Since the “My Vanilla” tab in my web browser stores information about my spending and purchases, I never forget to check my account balance. This enables me to determine whether I need to increase or decrease my spending. I also have complete control over the details of my shopping cart and I can choose the products that my visitors can buy with their credit or debit cards.
