Some words about prepaid credit cards

[January 24th, 2012]

Banks and credit card companies offer lots of prepaid credit cards advertising them here, there and everywhere. Prepaid cards have always been very popular among customers with little income and no credit history or among those with spotted one. But are these cards worth applying for?

People who are thinking of getting a prepaid card should have money to load upfront but, on the other hand, every dollar you load onto the card is yours and is not taken on credit. Be ready to pay different fees associated with your prepaid card beginning with account opening. However, you don’t have to worry about interest charges and exceeding your limit as compared to credit cards. For frequent travelers, there is no better alternative to prepaid cards, but the cost of every transaction is quite high.

Prepaid cards come with the convenience of regular credit cards when it comes to shopping online or bill payments. And, what is important, you will never be embarrassed using the prepaid card because the cards look just like regular credit cards.
