Card.com Prepaid Card

CaptureThis is a review for gift cards as debit cards.  Cool huh?   This would be a great way to send money to a college student too.

Don’t you love this design!! If you would like this design it is listed under Golden Retriever puppy (they should fix that soon).  The dog is obviously a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

After 30 days of putting money on the card there is a $5.95 per month fee!  Just so you know.  So please remember this if you do decide to get a card.  Just remember to use the card within 30 days.

The place online is called CARD.com.  Just go to the site, add your information and you are ready.  The process was simple really.  Again if you want to try it out go here: CARD.com.

A prepaid Card works like a bank debit card. Shop online or in-store, just like with a bank debit account. Once you load your CARD.com card with cash, you can start using it immediately and make purchases anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted. You can also use it to get cash at any ATM displaying the Visa®, Plus®, STAR® and NYCE® Acceptance Mark.

“This card is not a gift card, so you can’t give or receive the card as a gift – It’s better than a gift card because you don’t just use it once and toss it, but instead get to replace your boring bank-issued debit card and show it off over and over.

 Free for 30 days – then $5.95 monthly fee, which we waive when you direct deposit over $800 in the previous 30 days.  This fee is the same as the Walmart prepaid card and way less than many of our competitors. It’s also much less than overdrafting your bank account, paying for a checking account or using a credit card.”
