Rite Aid replaces $500 VGC with $200 VGC

Introduction

I was in my local Rite Aid yesterday and noticed they had pulled all of the variable Vanilla $500 VGCs and replaced them with more costly $200 ones.  Not only that, the cards used to be $4.95 each, but now they are $6.95 each (nearly a 3.5% fee.)  This applies to both One Vanilla as well as the typical Vanilla Visa gift cards.  As you can see the packaging is the same, so be careful.
