I've received a number of complaints that Netflix is no longer accepting some debit cards. Chef Bob writes:
Corporate apparently made a decision to stop accepting pre-paid debit cards which are not tied into a bank.. Social Security isssues aDebit Card from Comercia Bank and funds are placed in that account instead of mailing a check.. A number of seniors like myself value this service. I have been a Netflix customer for a long time..I rent 7 at a time..I cannot afford cable and I really appreciated Netflix supplying new titles. I think this decision is unfair and will surely eliminate a number of Seniors like myself from their service.
I put my account on vacation hold for about 8 weeks. I came back yesterday and tried to restart my account only to be told again and again that there is a problem with my credit card. I have used the same method for 3 years. Now all of the sudden Netflix has decided that they are no longer accepting prepaid credit cards for payment.
We accept major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, as well as debit cards with Visa or MasterCard logos. However, we're unable to accept pre-paid cards, money orders or purchase orders.
