Green Dot Card


The reason why people get a prepaid credit card is because they don’t have a checking account or a debit card. A prepaid card works the same way as a debit card so if you can I would recommend getting a debit card over a prepaid one, because they don’t have nearly as many fees.

Overall the Green Dot card is a pretty good prepaid card, because its fees are a lot lower than most prepaid ones. You can use your Green Dot prepaid card anywhere Visa or MasterCard is accepted.
