    I don't want to have my paypal or cc on file with 1and1 anymore, so I bought a Vanilla Visa gift card to see if that would work, and it didn't.

    It may be because it is charged from Germany. I see a .de domain load when I add new payment.

    So does anyone here know of a gift/prepaid visa/MC you can buy here in USA and use with 1and1?

    Stop! You might want to reconsider - 1&1 is one of the worst companies around to do business with. Have a look at their reviews around the Internet and you'll see what I mean.

    1and1 could give me a £100 gift card and I'd probably bin it as I wouldn't want the hassle. Save yourself the trouble and use another company, there's plenty of good ones around.

    I've bought my domains there for years and know their ways inside and out. 99% of the complaints are from idiots there for some reason don't think they have to cancel their domains and leave the settings on renew. Duh!

    The question was about gift visa/MC that will work with them. I do not want to have any open billing agreement with anyone where they can take what they want.

    I'm not aware of anything that will work with them, hopefully someone else will be able to help you though. Good luck!

    I use accountnow.com for everything, literally. I've never had an issue with it and I buy nearly everything online. I also pay for my hosting with it.

    It's not about the domains - their customer support is the most incompetent bunch of people ever. Regarding hosting, none of the support reps you talk to ever know anything related to your problem. Any billing problems? Then prepare for months of chatting to their people to get your problem resolved (if at all).
