Visa pre-paid gift cards allow recipients to get whatever gift they want for themselves anywhere Visa is accepted. One advantage of using a credit card format gift card is that it has many advantages of a Visa credit or debit card -- which includes theft protection. While all Visa gift cards allow you to report a lost or stolen card, only some allow for registration -- it depends on the issuer. However, if the option is available, registration is a great extra layer of protection for your valuable gift card.

Instructions

  • 1. Look for the name and any contact information of the card issuer on the Visa gift card and its associated packaging.

  • 2. Visit the website of the card issuer. If the card or package lists a specific website, start with that. If it lists only a bank or financial institution name, then you may have to start with the company's general website and look through it for Visa gift card information.

  • 3. Use the registration screen on the issuer's website. Many banks that issue Visa gift cards register them on their own sites such as Royal Bank of Canada. Others, such as Royal Credit Union in Eau Claire, Wisconsin route cardholders to an outsourced gift card registration site -- in this case, mygiftcardmanager.com.

  • 4. Enter the prepaid card number, the last four digits of your phone number and the three-digit security number on the back of the card. These are the key items that will allow you to login and complete a detailed personal registration online.

  • 5. Call the toll-free number on the back of the pre-paid Visa card if your card issuer doesn't offer an online registration. Speak with a customer service agent and to see if the company will register your card by phone.
