Mastercard & Visa are the most commonly accepted. Then comes Amex and the least (on a limited number of stores & restaurants, Discover.

PR uses the US banking system. Just like at home. ATMs (ATH in PR) are all over. Credit cards are widely accepted. Pay at the pump for gas. Grocery stores, Walmart, Kmart, Walgreens etc.

I believe the OP is inquiring about the "gift cards" from these credit card companies. I would confirm with the issuing establishments before arriving. A couple of years ago some of our guests who had planned to use theirs found that their transactions were denied at several major retailers and restaurants here (their regular credit card was accepted however). It may just depend on the issuing institution.

I have a couple Visa Gift Cards that don't work here. Thinking of making a mobile out of them!

@Sebana_seca ... I've lived here 8 years and have never seen a working "pay at the pump" credit card reader. I've always had to walk inside to the cashier.

I think there is no country left in the world that does not accept those credit cards or does not have electronic banking, maybe the Central African Republic is behind i guess.
