    If you go into places like Wallgreens, Walmart, 711 etc. You have surely noticed that there are these prepaid credit cards in the "gift card" section. 95% or more of the cards are "throw-aways", prepaid gift cards, online bill pay etc; even if they look real.
    BUT, what you may not have known is that a few of these are not throw away cards. They are real VISA & Mastercard debit/credit cards attached to real USA banks.

    BAD NEWS OF YESTERDAY: Normally, when you buy the card, you have to "load it" with money (50-1,000) before you can use it. Also, before you can use your card, you have to register it with the actual bank that is issuing it, using your real name and every other bit of information (including your Social Security #) that a normal bank would ask you for when establishing a bank account. AGAIN, because the few that I am talking about are DEBIT BANK cards; NOT prepaid throw-aways.

    GOOD NEWS OF TODAY: These same prepaid card companies have started selling (actual plastic) cards that can be purchased, loaded and used IMMEDIATELY after purchase. You can swipe them, you can buy stuff online and you can do anything that you would normally do with a credit/debit card. BIGGER news is that THEY DO NOT require you to register it before use anymore. You still have to load money onto the card, but you can use it anywhere VISA/MC is accepted, and it is "scanned" as a USA Debit Card from a USA bank.

    Seriously, good news for anyone who wants to buy anything online from anywhere in the world, verify online accounts like Paypal, eBay and FB. Also good for getting verified by USA AMs and for getting payment from USA only affiliate networks. Also good for completing USA based CPAs that require a real CC.

    Just thought I would let you all know because it was kind of a big deal on my old thread:

    Thought I would post here because others are bound to ask.

    The new bank cards that work instantly are designed for USA consumers and are not sold overseas. To get one of these, you (or someone) actually has to walk into a store and buy the card and load money onto it.

    SO, if you are outside of the USA, and want the USA bank card, you would have to either come get one, or have somebody in the USA get one for you. They could either then send it or give you the credentials to it (or both) ;)

    If you ARE USA, I know one with a free 25 bucks offer attached.

    So your revelation is finding prepaid debit cards in stores??? Been getting those quite a few years honestly it is pretty well known that you can get prepaid visa cards.

    The person loading the card simply pays the fee to get the card and then adds money to it (at the same time). The card is not registered to any one person at that point, but it is still functional. So, no the person who purchases and loads the card does not have to be the same person who owns the card.


    Same day, same time as the card is loaded. Some stores may take an hour, but that's really nothing. So yeah, one hour tops until funds are available on the card.

    Yes and no. Prepaid gift cards and prepaid debit cards have been around for a while. I already said that in the beginning of the OP and in the really old thread from two years ago.

    The "revelation" is that you never used to be able to get them without setting up the account; not the actual bank cards anyway, which are the only ones that are good for use in the situations that I mentioned.

    I have been using them for years as well, so I am sure about my information.

    You can also go to simon.com and buy a Visa/Mastercard and register it to whatever name/address you want. You can have the actual card mailed to you or you can just take the card info and use it online.

    "Is the Simon Giftcard a credit card? No, the Giftcard is a prepaid Visa card with the value of any amount you select between $20 and $500."

    Simon.com offers gift cards; NOT actual debit cards. Though the line of credit is drawn on a bank, it is considered a throw-away card.

    You are REALLY missing the point; which is that these new cards can be obtained by people who, in the past, were not able to get them, such as foreigners.

    Read the post and actually understand it before you get on your horse and talk down to sr. members.

    That is correct, it is a prepaid Visa card and is considered a throw away but you can attach a name, address and phone to the card for online shopping.

    Well, if you are living in the USA, I would say carry your butt down to the nearest Wallgreens and get one. Otherwise you need someone to do it for you.

    This is good news. Thank you for that.
    But the point I am trying to make here is that you have to be a USA resident (with a valid USA card) to get one of these in the first place.
    It's a catch 22. As far as I know, in all but in-store buys (in which case you still have to be in USA), you need a USA debit/bank/credit/gift card to get a USA debit/bank/credit/gift card.

    Good development, but it would be helpful if a few specific reloadable cards that work this way were mentioned. Also, if they have online access and are also 'bank accounts,' do they come with a bank routing/account number, and work as well as VBAs for PP verification?

    V!SA VANILLA Cards no longer work with verifying paypal accounts. V!SA VANILLA changed their system last month where you can no longer register them online with your address to match the paypal one.

    This is BHW and the people here generally thing "OOTB". Even Visa: There are ways around EVERYTHING. You should investigate some more.

    I agree, why are the cards not mentioned. No where in this entire thread does the op mentioni which cards he/she is talking about. WTF?

    Are you just offering a service or?

    There are a few of them & I am sure I mentioned Green Dots. If not I did a million times on my other post (which I linked to) and now here. Settle down. :rolleyes:

    & You have to be in USA to get these, or have someone in USA get them for you. Yes I will do this for people.
