    hey guys,

    anyone know any service or a way I can buy credit cards for adwords? my personal credit cards are already blacklisted in adwords. I don't want to just activate the account, i want to use that credit card for doing the actual PPC. From waht i heard, the gift credit cards and VCC are good for activating, but not for running campaigns?

    Can anyone please help me out?

    If you call your credit card company and tell them you broke your card, they will send you a new one free.

    Problem solved.

    i bought a visa gift card from seven eleven, didn't work in adwords, I am in canada so Simon gift card doesn't work either.

    gift cards are good for activating accounts but not for running campaigns.

    call customer service tell them you lost your card, send you a new one, has new #, new expiration date, that should do the trick.

    I have used a Visa/MC gift card for AdWords, but I used the pre-pay option. Did you try that with the gift card, or did you have your account set up to automatically charge the card as if it were a real credit card? I did this several months ago, so things may have changed since then, but if you haven't tried the pre-pay option in AdWords (if it still exists), then it might be worth a shot.

    Go to any retail outlet(even 7-11 will do) and buy a Visa Gift card. Those work wonders.
