Can you use prepaid Visa cards internationally?

Postby ian2009ian » Thu Mar 21, 2013 3:25 pm

I am planning on purchasing some items (virtual goods) for my wife's birthday this Saturday. I was planning on just going out tomorrow and buying a prepaid Visa card to do this (if I purchase with my debit card, she will know I bought it), then I realized that since this is going to be an international order, I may run into problems.

From what I have read, you can use a lot of the prepaid cards on international use, but only after you get the permanent card that you have to send away for.

Is there a prepaid card that I can get and use right away for international, online orders (I think it might be the Netherlands)? Preferably a card I can find easily at a Wal-Mart or Walgreens, etc.

Help would be GREATLY appreciated.
