Re: where can I buy "visa gift card"?

I'm wondering if anyone knows if the visa gift cards bought in the Post office here would work at stores in the U.S.?

I want to get some visa gift cards for my nieces and nephew (who live in the U.S.) for Christmas but can't seem to find them being sold anywhere online that will accept my payment with a Swiss credit card address. So then I just found this thread...

So apparently I can buy them from the Post (?) here, but I want to make sure my nieces and nephew will be able to use them in the States.

Does anyone know?

No. You can't use them in the US. You can't even use the iTunes cards in the US iTunes store.

If you need me to buy them for you I still have a US credit card.

I am 15 and I need to buy some things online. I have money just no credit card. In America we could just go to the drug store and get a visa gift card and use it to buy things online.. do you know how I could do something like that here? I need it very soon like as in 2 days.

Ask your parents to lend their credit card?

Re: where can I buy "visa gift card"?

k-kiosk, Press&Books and avec shops (Valora) sell "ok.-" brand Visa and Mastercard prepaid cards. An adult person (18+) needs to be there when you buy it.
http://www.okpunktstrich.ch/cards/en/
They are quite expensive (CHF 39.- initial fee, firs top-up free, then 4% fee on each top-up).

Maybe Yuna To Go (CHF 15.- initial fee) / YunaCard is another possibility:
https://www.yunacard.com/ch-de/produkt/

Both providers claim that their cards can be used worldwide and for online payments.

For other prepaid cards see:

Good luck! T.
