What is a Prepaid Credit Card

Jul 30, 2008
If you have bad credit, there are a lot of things which are not really available to you. Since bad credit can prevent you from getting a credit card, or only make you eligible for accredit card with an incredibly high interest rate which is really too expensive to be worthy of your consideration in the first place. If you have bad credit and cannot get a credit card, there is still an option for you to be able to get a credit card which you will be able to use and better yet, afford. Prepaid credit cards are out there and they are popular even with people who have good credit histories.

What is great about prepaid credit cards is that you don?t have to have any type of credit to get one. All you have to have is money to put on the card. There are limits and minimums on the amounts on some of these prepaid credit cards, but that is not always the case. Some you can get online, and others you can get with cash at some retailers. You will have to pay some fees, of course, but if you really want a credit card, and you can not get one elsewhere, this is definitely the way to go.

Prepaid credit cards can open up a whole new world for those that don?t have the credit to get one issued through a bank. They can use them to shop online, and they can also use them for things like reserving hotel rooms and buying concert tickets through online sites. Those are all things that require a credit or debit card to accomplish. They can also feel the security that cards can offer. That means they don?t have to carry large amounts of cash with them when they go on vacation or anywhere else away from home.

Those with poor credit may find that the prepaid credit cards offer them some credit protection. This is because you can not spend more than you have put on the card. If you have the traditional type of credit card, you can easily charge more than you can afford to pay back before you realize what you have done. That makes your credit situation even worse. These prepaid credit cards are also great for college students and even high school students so that they have a card, but they are not going to ruin their credit when learning to manage money on their own for the first time.
