Thanks for the very useful info. I’m particularly interested with Paypal. As an alternative to debit cards, I use a regular bank ATM also for over-the-counter purchases. But it is highly important to be security conscious while entering the pin in public.

I don’t use debit cards hey don’t help building credit either even if some of ’em offer rewards.


Shawanda @ You Have More Than You Think

I noticed one of the selling points for some of these prepaid cards are “no credit check”. If I’m preloading the card with cash, why would a credit check be necessary? How much risk is the credit card company accepting if I can’t make any purchases when the money runs out?

Thank for this great information. With regards to online payments, I am personally inclined to Paypal as I feel more secure not giving some personal information in making transactions.

And as for carrying a card, credit cards carry more rewards and benefits- as long as you pay in full every month. The interests outweighs the rewards and benefits if a credit card is not properly managed.

Best regards,
