Visa gift card not usable outside US. Alternatives?

Jump to last reply

My daughter is going to Thailand over Christmas, and my "brilliant" idea was to give her a Visa gift card to use for some nice kind of treat while she was travelling. Then I read the small print on the card -- it's only valid with US merchants. I could give her cash, but that seems a bit of a copout. Is there a card I can buy in the US that can be used outside the US?
