Several weeks back, I was contacted by Card.com and asked to try out their pre-paid debit cards. You can pick from thousands of card images, and also easily direct deposit your paychecks on the cards or like it to your PayPal account.
After quickly verifying my information, I picked out a Walking Dead graphic for my card. I received it in a few days. The Card.com rep had it pre-loaded with $25 that I could use anywhere. I ended up using the card to get the ‘Shallow Gravy’ t-shirt offered by the Venture Bros. T-Shirt Club. It left a few dollars on the card, which I haven’t used yet. These cards are very useful if you don’t have a checking account. You will have all your money right there, and you can pay all your bills with it, get groceries, ect…
However, there is a fee for it. The monthly fee for the card is $5.95, but as long as you direct deposit at least $800 over the course of the month, then the fee is waived. There are others fees for different services you can get with the card too, which you should check out before you get one.
For me, though, the card isn’t a good match since I’m a stay-at-home mom. I don’t have a paycheck coming so I would end up having to pay the fee every month. But, on the bright side, I can easily send the card back and close it out.
Overall, Card.com is very useful & is worth checking out if you are looking for a pre-paid card. It only takes a few minutes to get it and as long as you deposit enough on it, then you will avoid the monthly fee. You can get more info & sign up for one at the Card.com website.
