Prepaid debit cards are a smart and cost-effective alternative to carrying cash and paying check-cashing fees. Because it's a pre-funded card, you only spend the money you load on it.
First, you need to apply for a prepaid card.
Once you receive your card, you will need to activate it.
After you activate your card, you can load money onto it.
With money loaded, you're free to start spending.
Reload and repeat!
Just like a bank card, you can choose to make PIN or signature purchases with a prepaid card. Just swipe your card and either enter your PIN, or select "credit" to sign for your transaction.
If you're looking for an alternative to a traditional bank card that will help you keep from overspending and make it easy to track your budget – then a prepaid debit card may be the right solution for you!
Unlike a credit card, you must load money onto a prepaid card before you can start spending. You will only be able to spend the amount of money that you have available on the card.
