A Visa Gift Card is a prepaid card that is accepted anywhere Visa debit cards can be used. It operates similarly to a prepaid gift card for an individual retailer but allows the recipient greater flexibility in how the money is spent.
To use a Visa Gift Card to purchase an amount greater than the balance remaining on the card, ask the cashier to set up two separate transactions. The first will be in the amount remaining on your gift card, and the second you will pay with some other form of payment, such as cash or debit. Merchants may require you to present the gift card if you wish to return an item with you purchased it. Therefore, you should keep it until you are sure you will not be making any returns.
