Best Virtual Credit Card?

Postby Scizor » Sun Jul 17, 2011 1:57 pm

Well, I live in Portugal, and we don't have Spotify here (unfortunately ), I have tried it before, and it is awesome. The thing is, I can connect and use it with no problems (no VPN's, nothing) but I cannot pay using my Portuguese Paypal or credit card. It doesn't let me.

As long as it is legal to do so, I think using a virtual credit card/VCC would be a solution, right? So what I'm looking for is the best virtual credit card provider that gives the following features:

- Has to be from one of the Spotify accepted countries (Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, the US, France, Spain and the Netherlands)
- Recharges would be good, not having to buy VCC every month
- An anonymous VCC would also be good

Thanks in advance people.

Have you tried buying Visa/Mas/Amex gift cards?
That is the only thing i can recommend.

I'm not sure if they still offer this, but Paypal accounts used to allow the creation of virtual credit card numbers for shopping. It wasn't until after using them twice that I came to discover the lifetime limit was 2 virtual card numbers per lifetime. That was several years ago and I have no clue if that benefit is still offered, but it was completely free.

About how you would want to use a VCC, double check and make sure you are allowed to do that, whoever you end up using.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
