Prepaid Visa Debit Card

Here at GetDebit.com, we love talking about, using, reviewing, and looking at prepaid debit cards, including teen cards and gift cards (ok, well maybe we don’t “love” it, but we sure do like it!).

Here’s why.

Prepaid debit cards are opening up a whole new world of financial services to folks who previously didn’t have access to them. Teen cards let teenagers (as young as 13 years old) learn financial responsibility by controlling their money. Prepaid debit cards let people without access to “traditional” bank accounts save money, build credit, pay bills, and enjoy the convenience of cashless shopping all over the world. Gift cards let you give people the gift of cash, without having to give cash.

And prepaid cards aren’t just for teens or people who don’t use traditional banks. Millions of people with bank accounts use prepaid debit cards each day to shop, save, and enjoy the convenience and security provided by these products.

In our view, prepaid debit cards represent some of the best innovation in the financial services world. At GetDebit.com, we hope to share information, news and products with you so that you can learn about and really “get debit”.
