Can you reload or add funds to a Vanilla Gift Balance, and how does this affect the balance checking process? 

You cannot reload or add additional funds to a Vanilla Gift Card once it has been purchased and used. These types of gift cards are typically designed for one-time use until the balance is depleted. Once you've spent all the money on the card, you cannot put more money onto it.
