Call customer service. Tell them to check your balance. If they say it's not working/not activated go back to the store and tell them. They should give you a new one.

 

I use a Vanilla MasterCard. It worked perfectly.

Sorry to tell u this but the vanilla visa gift card doesnt work for any online purchases, i had one like two weeks ago and couldnt get it to work so i called customer service at visa and they told me there is no way to register ur name and address with the card so they dont work online trust me i tried everything.The American Express prepaid gift card works on psn easily no hassles at all because u dont need to have ur name and address registered with the card just type in a gift for u in the name box thats it go buy that one.

That's all you have to do. I just registered my Postal Code and it worked. But you do have a different credit card company so it is different.
