  1. Daraius,
    After about 5 cumulative hours of running around, I finally found a source of Vanilla Reload cards near me that lets me purchase them with credit.

    Today I bought my first VRs and loaded them to my BlueBird. (It’s really scary how little validation there is – check check check for typos!) 🙂

    Also, my Southwest-hub-based dad is now getting to tag along with his wife to see their baby granddaughter till the end of 2014, thanks to your 50,000-mile credit card explanation. They love their $2.50 companion fares!

    Thank you SO much!! *big hugs*
