    Nope, no affiliate link here.

    I remember being a total noob in everything dealing with online-money-making.
    So after I spent 3 days making a whopping $20 it was a big deal to me and I NEEDED it ASAP.

    Online I do not use my bank debit card.
    Why? Because sites get hacked - constantly.

    I use various prepaid cards.

    Typically a company like Paypal or Stripe sends an ACH a day before you actually get it.
    Most cards/banks don't process these until the next morning. Don't ask me to get technical because honestly I don't remember all of the process but anyway ...

    I've noticed lately that my Greendot cards always have the money the day it is sent out - not the following morning.

    I know this means jack to 99.99% of you but for some people starting out having that money a day earlier can make the difference between a late bill or being able to eat.

    Nope, it's not world-changing. No, I do not promise that i will work the same for you.
    The downside also is a lot of prepaid cards charge a monthly fee but Greendot is up there at like $8.95/month? AKA - a few bucks more than others.

    The other downside is every time you login to Greendot you have to see Steve Harvey who looks remarkably like Mr Potato Head.

    Like I said I know this is pointless for most people but hopefully this little tip helps someone along the way.

    I've been dead on BHW while I've been trying different ways of making money. I'll be back to post some actual useful stuff later :)
