Hi, not sure where to post this - I did a focus group and they now pay with a prepaid Visa debit card (used to pay in cash, then checks now these cards - I don't want to have to try to deal with spending every penny of it before it expires at the end of August. Does anyone know if I can use it to buy a card at a local grocery store or somewhere?

Can't you get a cash advanced on it at any teller window at a bank? Or use it to pay a part of your bill at the supermarket checkout.

Thanks jtur88 - I didn't realize I could do that - I'll check at my bank! (I never had one before). I just wanted to use the whole amount and not piecemeal like a regular store or restaurant gift card.

It would have to be a lot of money of you can't spend it all in a couple of months. Use it to put gas in your car, buy groceries, eat in a restaurant.
