... Big Smile< Nice first post dude...!!! You are NOT mooching cash as usually IS the case... Big Smile Thumbs Up

... Big Smile< I use InstaDebit,...it's instant once you've used it,...and a LOT cheaper than using cards...! You just gotta make sure you have cash in your bank account. It can then be used as an ewallet for free...!

I don't really get the principle of pre pay cards, unless you get some bonus from doing so, but then the company probably recoups that from you anyway by increasing the cost of what they sell... To me it's a gimmick. Use your cards wisely or use cash! Just my opinion.

PPC are good for people who hates gifting money or people who are afraid of the risks of internet banking/online usage of your own bank issued cards for safety reasons. It's a viable solution for a lot of things IMO.

The problem with amex, is there not accepted at very many places.
When your looking for the master card, go stop in any one of the check cashing places like money mart, they all have them.
Amex fees to the retailers is too high, thats why most stores and online sites don't take it.
Good luck trying to get rid of it, unless you try useing it to buy a master card. Thumbs Up

It was a silly mistake indeed. But i dont think it was that bad, besides the fact that you couldnt
deposit to the poker site you wanted.
Its not lost money Smile
So next time be more careful with this.

Prepaid cards, is probably the best thing to go, even better than credit cards.
