Paying at the SnS

I don't have a Paypal account but I do have a couple visa gift card things that I can spend anywhere. Can I use these to pay for plants?

jeff,
simple answer is no. Unless you're buying from someone who already have a business setup to accept cc then you may be able to use the prepaid visa gift card. Otherwise, you'll have to go through paypal.
You may want to take a look at the FAQ about buying and selling at the SNS. I believe they have words of cautions for normal ppl like me and you.

Only if the seller has access to a Credit Company Gateway which I doubt for most people have. It's easier to get somebody with a paypal account to buy plants for you.

You could always open a savings account with your parents and can link it up with PayPal.

If the OP is under 18, he/she legally can't have a paypal account.

Check the RAOK section. People give plants aways, maybe not the ones you want but it's a start.

You can also buy plants from aquariumplants.com with your gift card. They're from your home state so shipping should be pretty fast.

The RAOK usually require the buyer to pay shipping. And I'll check that site out. The one thing I am mainly looking for is Christmas moss! I have a 5g waiting for it.

Not true, he can have a student account.

Also, to the OP, consider giving the cards to a close friend or family member who has a Paypal in exchange for buying plants for you

Hey mister green I don't know if you would know or not but do you know what the differences between Xmas moss and mini Xmas moss are? Which is more attractive? And which bushes out more and grows a little faster?

True but almost everyone I know doesn't have one besides my dad and he already turned that one down pretty quick): shame because I have plenty of money but relatives always put it on those cards instead of to me for a bank account to start up.

Ah true, but the OP needs a parent to open the account, either way.
