So much more information is planned for this page.
I really want to make this a resource for everyone to learn about why prepaid credit cards are an excellent thing, primarily as gifts, but also as ways to save money, protect your information, change credit information, and to help students and teens.
So far, Visa, MasterCard, and AMEX are offering Prepaid credit cards, but many more are sure to be on the way, as more parents of college students and teens recognize the help they can be to their kids.
I have just been so busy with everything else, that I haven't had a chance to do all the work I want on this site, to share with you my prepaid credit card story, but it will happen very soon, and you will be convinced why prepaid credit cards are the way to go for Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and they make a really nice anonymous, almost virtual gift for a secret admirer!
Until I can get my story here, you might want to check out the link below, as it will help you get an awesome prepaid credit card.
Do you need a prepaid credit card?
In today's credit-based society, it's hard to get by without a major credit card. Just try renting a car or making a purchase online without one and you'll see what I mean.

What are prepaid credit cards?
Many lenders now offer prepaid MasterCards and/or prepaid Visa cards. These cards work exactly like a regular credit card. In fact, neither you or the store will be able to tell you're using a prepaid credit card simply by looking at it or using it.
The concept of prepaid credit cards is really very simple. You open an account and "pre-load" the card with cash up-front, similar to a pre-paid calling card. Then you use your prepaid MasterCard or Visa anywhere these cards are accepted.
