Through April 15, 2013, head on over to the Visa Prepaid Facebook page, “like” them, and click on the Tax Sweepstakes tab for more information on how to enter the Visa Prepaid 2013 Tax Sweepstakes. Simply choose to load your 2012 federal income tax refund onto an eligible, participating Visa Prepaid card between 1/1/13 and 4/15/13 and you’ll be entered to win groceries for a year to be awarded in the form of $12,000 check.

To load your refund on a participating Visa Prepaid card, just follow these 3 steps:
1. Call the customer service number or visit the web address on the back of your card. Ask for the routing number & account number associated with your Visa® Prepaid card.
2. Mark “checking” for refund type on your tax form and fill in the numbers. Make sure the name on the card matches with the name on the tax form.
3. Review your balance online or at participating stores to see when it’s been deposited.

Even better, when you use your participating, eligible Visa Prepaid card, you’ll be entered for a chance to win one of ten $150 Visa gift cards given away weekly for a total of 15 weeks. Click here for more information. Good luck! :D

    Pffft. Wish they had an alternate means of entry without having to use a prepaid Visa.

      I agree. I just can’t see using a Prepaid credit card unless you’re unable to get a regular credit card.

        2) U.S. Mail: To enter without purchase, use of a Visa Prepaid card or Visa Payroll card, load of a federal income tax refund or other obligation by U.S. Mail: Hand-print your full name, address, city, state, ZIP code, and daytime and evening telephone numbers (including area codes) on a 3” x 5” card, and mail, in a #10 envelope with postage affixed, to: Visa Prepaid 2013 Tax Sweepstakes for Refund Load, P.O. Box 706, Plainview, NY 11803-0706. Each mail-in entry will count as one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes random drawing.

    I’m not getting a refund this year. I have to pay. So boo on this contest!

    • jessica says:

      That’s how I’ve felt every year, my friends all get excited around tax time and talk about getting so much money, I’ve always had to pay :( this year I had my first child and bought a new car, so I’m getting something back for once lol

      • Patty says:

        Think of it this way… Your friends are overpaying their taxes with every paycheck (having too much withheld) and then getting their own money refunded. It’s exactly like putting money in a savings account every paycheck, then withdrawing it at tax time, except that you don’t get any interest. I’ve never understood why people get so excited about tax refunds :)

        • kiley says:

          Probably because they are not disciplined or lack the self control needed to save the money every month….At least this way ensures that they will have a lump sum of money to use however
