CVS stops selling PayPal My Cash cards


Overnight, it seems that CVS pharmacies have stopped selling PayPal My Cash cards. Points, Miles and Martinis posted about this change this morning and Stefan of Rapid Travel Chai has since reported a Flyertalk thread with further data points.


While there was one commenter at Flyertalk reporting success in buying a card today, all other reports indicate that the register will not ring up the PayPal My Cash card, suggesting that this is something hard-coded into the register system. Several people have also called the number on the back of a PayPal My Cash card and been told that CVS has stopped selling the cards overnight.

Final Word

This is a disappointing development as it was one of the easy ways to increase credit card spend and get most of it back. It seems that this is a firm decision by CVS to stop selling these particular cards. As Stefan suggests, that move is more likely the result of security concerns with the cards rather than a larger policy shift with regard to gift cards. Still, we will continue to monitor this situation for any further updates.
