Many believe you need a bank account to take care of life’s everyday necessities, but why hassle with a bank if you don’t have to? True, you could stick with cash, but then you’ve got to wait in line to cash your paycheck, run around town to pay bills, and ultimately miss out on online bargains. With a prepaid debit card, managing your money and spending it how, and when you want has never been easier.
The Benefits of a Prepaid Debit Card
Get paid quicker
With a prepaid debit card your direct deposits are immediately available. That means no waiting around for the postman to deliver your check, and no waiting in line to cash it. Many prepaid debit card providers will also send you a text message the minute your money is available.
Keep your cash safe
Easily load cash onto your card at multiple locations. A prepaid card can be used almost anywhere major credit cards are accepted, so you won’t miss out on online bargains. You have the added security of knowing exactly where your money is at all times and what it’s being spent on.
Manage your spending
Many prepaid cards offer online account management systems that provide the traditional perks of a bank, plus additional tools that give you even more control over your spending. You’re able to view your transaction history, check your balance, and track your spending. Don’t want to spend too much on clothes or entertainment this month? Use your provider’s online tools to monitor your spending, set limits, and even save money.

Not sure how to budget? Many prepaid cards offer online budgeting tools and sample budgets to help you get started.
