    You may want to check the expiration dates and pick the CLOSEST (which will still be eons away in time). Just got a 2022 card without thinking about it and no one has it on their drop downs. Local card it is =|

    Where are you trying to use it? I've never had this problem with prepaid credit cards before.

    A business intelligence site. They went up to 2019 =| Still trying to figure out how to work with a subscription site that does recurring billing using a prepaid card that I can load with cash. Feeling my way through this.

    just write an email to the company so their it stuff can change it, whats the big deal.
    sooner or later there will be also 2022 in the dropdown, just wait 3 years otherwise

    Well...you could always modify the input value on their site to be 22 instead of 19 and see what happens. Lots of times, the code that generates the dropdown only displays a specific number of years but there's nothing in the backend that would prevent it from supporting 2022 if it were to receive that value.

    This could be done by inspecting the element in Chrome to open the developer tools then directly modifying the value in the HTML, or you could use a javascript injection. Generally easier to just go to the Chrome route. Firefox may also have this, but I'm not sure.
