Do NOT use VISA GIFT CARDS to upgrade you GLP Accounts, Guys!
I just wanted you all to know that the VISA gift cards
(the ones you can prepay at the grocery stores--like I
bought one at Albertson's) will NOT honor payments to GLP.

I hosted our February Caption Contest on Jan 31st and
happily Green Onions and Wharf Rat won with their great
captions. We had a really fun time with it--here's the
link if you want to check it out:
Thread: CONTEST now closed (sorry!) "CAPTION CONTEST" EXTENDED TO 4:00 A.M. EST! Win 1 of 2 Free 1-month upgrades--You can do it!

I clicked on all the options for upgrading our two winners
and the little yellow stars came up on the 2 accounts--
...THEN...THIS IS THE STRANGE PART--and it appeared the TWO
accounts were upgraded for a day or 2--as I checked a couple
of times and it looked good...then BOOM the stars fell off the 2 accounts!

(So did VISA take the money (at first), then a couple days
later turn around and change their mind because the payment was for GLP? (Things are getting so weird out there that
that wouldn't even surprise me! Even Ben Davidson has
lost his Twitter Account because someone decided they
didn't like his content.) No way for me to check into THAT.

I received a PM saying that VISA refused to honor the
payment...and now I'm wondering if there is something
"political" about VISA not taking the funds for political
reasons or something? There's really no way to find out.

Since I tossed the card (only enough on there for 2 upgrades)
I don't even have the card number so there isn't any way
for me to trace it or to get a refund. So, there's $30
down the drain!

Just wanted to save anyone else the frustration of using
some of these gift cards to do upgrades. At least if you
try...be sure to KEEP THE CARD AROUND for a few days to
make sure everything goes through.

If anyone has EXPERIENCE USING A PRE-PAID CREDIT CARD
Please let me know the brand and where to get them...
(I know Walmart has some you can get that are reloadable
the VISA card I bought was just a one-time purchase.)

JUST A "HEADS-UP" not to get this kind in the future!

P.S. Any chance for "Green Onions" and "Wharf Rat" to
get a "complementary upgrade" from Trinity--since this
wasn't anyone's fault here? I don't have another $30
this month to fix this!

cheers

P.S. To Trinity or whomever handles the upgrades...

If I could get that actual VISA card number that they
declined to pay I could track the card and get a refund
to get another type of gift card. I have no clue how
to contact the payment department of GLP for this question.

So if there's a way to give me the original card number
I keyed in for the upgrades, that would help a great deal!
