News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Bitcoins to prepaid visa = easy. Other way round = hard as you can reverse the transaction easily. For most almost 1 to 1 transactions you'll need more rep before people trust you. Else, use virworx (the SL exchanger) to get from SL to bitcoins, but with some fees incurred. There might be other ways I'm not aware of (never did that before), so someone may give a better way.

Escrow service is available on a case by case basis! (PM Me to verify I'm the escrow!)

How does one go about using a prepaid giftcard to get bitcoins? PM me for help please.

There are some services which will convert your giftcard to PayPal or Amazon Payments.  From there you might find a trade into bitcoins.  Your options are described here:
 - http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2452.msg661611#msg661611

[Edit:  Oh . a Pre-Paid VISA debit card.   That's more useful in trade.  
  http://www.get-bitcoin.com  will accept the prepaid debit card in the mail and funds exchanged (less 3% fee) for bitcoins. ]

I tried to unload a prepaid visa on #bitcoin-otc and nobody would take it.  Because it can be reported as stolen, it is easy to reverse payments.  If you hang around there someone may need food ordered - then use your visa and they pay you in BTC.  Just an idea.
