    Hey Guys,

    Just thought I would share this. I have a netspend visa card that I successfully used with an adwords coupon (I assume this would work with Facebook as well). Anyway, this morning I was poking around my account online, and they have a new feature: virtual cards! The virtual cards are free, tied to your account, are instantly issued whenever you ask for them, you can have as many as you want, they can be both added and deleted at will, and as I said apparently their numbers are not on Google's hot list because I've used their cards there. Besides the thieving bastards at paypal, this is the first service like this I've seen be available in the US.

    Netspend has always been pretty awesome, since they give you a virtual bank account with routing/account number that can accept direct deposits (so you can fund directly from places like paypal, google checkout, etc.). But with this virtual card thing, it officially rocks :).

    Anyway, you can buy prepaid netspend cards at just about any check cashing/payday loan place. You might want to check it out!

    For this stuff, can you open an account as a Canadian citizen? Do you need a passport?

    Also can a new Adwords account be opened with a virtual card?

    Hey, just in case anyone has difficulty with this....I got my Netspend card from Advance America (one of those payday loan/check cashing places - see advanceamericacard dot com). Apparently they have a different web interface than the regular netspend. Since the virtual cards are netspend branded though, I don't think anyone will have a problem, but I got a PM saying that this is not in the regular netspend interface, only in the advance america netspend card interface. Doesn't make much sense, but I suppose anything's possible.

    Here's a screenshot showing how easy it is to issue/manage/delete these things (NO FEE) once you have your card (my card cost me $10, plus $9.95/mo for unlimited transactions - you don't have to pay a monthly fee but then you're talking a $1.00 per transaction fee - yikes!)
