Get Prepaid Credit Cards

Updated on December 22, 2011

Prepaid Credit Cards

These types of cards can be acquired with different credit card issuer or merchant brands, such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express along with big company brands on the card, including Walmart. A pre paid card is really a stored value type of debit card. Typically you will have put money into, "loaded" a card with a certain amount of cash value. This is the amount you can spend on the card before you have to reload or put more cash into the debit card.

The pre-paid creditcard is used just like a typical credit card. You can buy products, services, merchandise, airline tickets, reserve rental cars, hotel rooms, shop online, in-store and buy the merchandise you want to buy. These cards appeal to students, younger people where the parents are providing a means for the children to have money available to spend but without having to carry cash, and some people who have bad credit or can not get credit. Would you like to be able to shop where you want and use a plastic card but can not get one? Learn more about your options and opportunities with pre paid credit cards and what they might do to enhance and improve your credit rating.

Prepaid Credit and Debit Card Websites

There are many prepaid credit cards and stored value cards that are also reloadable and re-chargeable on the market today for consumers with all types of needs. When you review and check out each of the cards and their offers make sure you clearly understand all of the potential fees and charges involved with owning, using and maintaining the card before you purchase. These may not be right for everyone. Ask questions and understand the terms and conditions.

There are several different types of cards such as non-reloadable pre-paid cards, multi-purpose cards, debit card, store brand gift, payroll cards and prepaid travel.

Some of the recognizable brands and names available include:
Ace Visa
