Some folks find it hard to locate an Office Depot which is stocked with Vanilla Reload cards with which to load their American Express Bluebird cards.

See this post for more information on what a Vanilla Reload card looks like and how to load your Bluebird card with a Vanilla Reload.

liw5215 posted on FlyerTalk that the list of places which sell Vanilla Reloads has been expanded to include more gas stations, convenience stores and pharmacies.
Vanilla Reloads Soon to be at Wal-Mart?

Wal-Mart is now listed at that TOP of the list!

It does make sense to place Wal-Mart at the top of the list, because it is very likely that Wal-Mart could be the number one distributor of Vanilla Reload cards.  This is because Vanilla Reload cards can be used to reload a Bluebird pre-paid card.  And Bluebird is a partnership between Wal-Mart and American Express.

I immediately drove to the closest Wal-Mart and Valero gas station but couldn’t find any Vanilla Reloads stocked.  I suspect it could take time for stock to reach locations, and I also suspect that many gas stations and convenience stores choose which prepaid cards to stock.  This means that some gas stations and convenience stores could stock Vanilla Reloads while others don’t.

But I do hope that Wal-Mart will start to stock Vanilla Reloads soon!


Unfortunately, some of these stores aren’t in Kansas so I can’t check them all out to see if they sell Vanilla Reloads with a  credit card.  But please comment with your experience!

I wasn’t able to load my American Express Bluebird with a Vanilla Reload at Family Dollard & General Dollar, but perhaps that will change.

Here’s the list of stores from the Vanilla Reload website.  Note that not all of them will stock Vanilla Reloads, and you may not be able to use a credit card at some locations.

Bottom Line

I don’t know if all these locations will eventually carry Vanilla Reloads, but I sure would be happy if Wal-Mart did!
