My vitual card is through the citibank site. If you have a citibank card you can set up an account to do that with them. I'm sure there are other cards that do it also.

BTW, the tri-luma is great. It has really made a difference in my sun damage.

ETA: I just finished placing an order.

I got an e-mail from medsmex late yesterday saying they don't take VISA or MC anymore because they are putting too many restictions on medsmex. They want me to mail them a check to their Oregon address. After what I have been through..no thanks. I see tri-luma on another site for almost double the medsmex price, but I don't need a prescription, (which I know I could get, just am too lazy), so I might order from this other site. Canadian sites want prescripitons.

I went back and reread the e-mail and I missed something. The reason they are not using MC and VISA is because they are requiring medsmex to have prescriptions. They are trying to work another solution and you can use American Express.

Here's the e-mail:

Dear Valued Customers:

With much regret we need to let you know that we are unable to process Visa or Mastercard payments at this time. Recently we ended our business relationship with Visa & Mastercard due to restrictions that they insisted on placing upon us, which would have forced our customers to obtain a prescription prior to processing their orders.

We are negotiating with other sources to obtain a new merchant account that allows us to continue business as usual for our customers and we should have a solution within the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, we are asking those customers that have placed orders using a Visa or Mastercard to submit payment by one of these methods and we will offer a one time 10% discount. When placing a new order using another method of payment please use the Coupon Code (during the check out process- located at the bottom of your page during the first page of check out) enter the code of: 08promo Your discount will automatically be deducted.

Check or Money Order (manually deduct the 10% discount prior to shipping
costs) Western Union Paybycheck (online check) (A NEW ORDER WILL NEED TO BE PLACED ONLINE TO RECEIVE DISCOUNT) American Express (A NEW ORDER WILL NEED TO BE PLACED ONLINE TO RECEIVE DISCOUNT)

We apologize for these issues and we are working hard to continue to bring our services to our customers, and we will have the ability to accept Visa and Mastercard shortly for future orders, without a prescription as always!

Check payments can be mailed to our US Customer Service Office at:
Today's Business c/o Medsmex
6510 South 6th Street #38
Klamath Falls, OR 97603
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR ORIGINAL ORDER WILL NOT BE PROCESSED, NOR CHARGED, AND PAYMENT INFORMATION WILL BE DELETED FROM OUR ADMIN PROGRAM.
What about Four Corners Pharmacy? Not sure if they sell Tri-luma...but I think they sell the Retin-A.

I bought this from my dermatologist (full price unfortunately!) and have been using it for about 5 weeks. I didn't use it every night for a while due to the irritation and peeling but pretty much use it every night now. Occasionally I will skip a night if I am getting too much peeling. I am not seeing the results that everyone else is from the Tri-Luma. I know it's supposed to be the best product out there for melasma, but mine must be stubborn. I have it on my upper lip and it is from BC pills. I am VERY diligent with my sunscreen and even re-apply mid day. I know you are only supposed to use it continuously for 8 weeks so I am worried that it was a waste for me. I'm not sure what else I can do if this doesn't work as I had high hopes for this.

I didn't know there was an 8 week time limit. I've been using it for months. It takes a long time to see real results. I say just stick with it.

I've looked at 4corners before, I'll check them out again.
I have order tri-luma with medsmex but they have another company called medicinesmexico.com
