I read in an earlier thread that vanilla cards that are blue with a shopping cart work. I've seen them in the store but I find it hard to believe. Gift 2 go as of 3/29/12 is USA only. Does anyone have a gift card in mind as of today? thanks

Seems that most these gift cards (gift 2 go & vanilla) are no longer being authorized for international transactions. There's even a gambling disclaimer on the gift 2 go' website when you register your card. Sucks, because I always deposited with these cards.

The LAST option is to get a account now card. www.accountnow.com, I just found out today that all visa debit and gift cards are restricted for international use (I wonder why....). It's either the money transfers, or a bank account. The good thing is that those cards are like having a bank acount so you can authorize those purchases because you actually control your money. What sucks is that there's a 4.95 international trasaction fee.

@Yoshi

So what just buy a visa gift card then deposit on that site, then use that site to deposit in the form of a cc on a sportsbook?

Western Union has gift cards that are allowed for international use, it's a 5.00 fee. Also, it might be safe to register with western union on there website so you can do money trasnfers online. The thing is most books has a min of $100 to do money transfers expect betonline.ag, I think its 25 or 50. So by default betonline.ag is now my book,

Also, I've been researching and Bank Corp and Meta Bank have debit cards that are allowed for international use. you go to go to there website and apply.  It's getting more tougher to gamble :(

most "credit card" gift cards can no longer be used for international transactions. 

basically you have to use a card where the user is not anonymous.  The govt wants the ability to know who you are if making internation purchases. I think it's homeland security/big brother BS.

If you get sometype of cash card you can add funds to it via cash in a store and that will work for international purchases, however you have to register the card with all your information and even social security number possibility (not 100% sure about that).
