A user on Reddit is using the gold card that was recently released to buy merchandise at retailers across the US, but she is currently not able to use it to buy items.
Reddit user jamesgolby posted a photo of a receipt she received for the gold credit card, along with the following message:”Sorry but the gold will be available at your local retailer in the next 24 hours.
If you want to purchase this card on the spot, please use the code ‘goldcard’ and follow the instructions on the card.”
Reddit users have been able to buy gold cards at a number of retail outlets in the past, but this is the first time a customer has purchased the card online.
The gold card, which was first introduced to the world by Visa in 2016, allows a customer to purchase merchandise using bitcoin.
Although the gold is currently only available for purchase through a PayPal account, the Reddit user who posted the receipt for the card says that she plans to try and buy it through a third party credit card processor in the future.
A spokesperson for Visa told Business Insider that they are investigating the incident and will take appropriate action.
It is unclear if the goldcard user who received the receipt is currently able to purchase items on Amazon.com.
