New: CVS to Limit Purchase of Prepaid Cards

CVS is now limiting the purchase of prepaid products in-store to $2,000 or less per day, in a new memo sent by a corporate official at CVS.


Here’s the summary of what you need to know.

  • The memo appears to be real – it’s issued by Cary Chaney, who was the same individual to send out the Vanilla Reloads memo back in April of this year.
  • The limit on the purchase of prepaid card transactions begins Oct. 27. This includes gift cards, and purchases will be limited to $2,000 per day.
  • Registers will be hard coded to not allow a purchase over $2000.
  • An ID will be required for all purchases over $300.

So, if you purchase lots of gift cards or reload able debit products from CVS, keep these new limits in mind when they take affect October 27.
