Re: Why Card Fraud Grows

said by Mele20:

I don't get the point of those kinds of cards.

There are many advantages/disadvantages to using a prepaid card.
The reasons I routinely them are:
1. Online purchases.
I don't use CC's/debit card for online purchases as a mater of security.
2. To disassociate myself from certain purchases either online or bricknmortar.
The only disadvantage is the ~$5 premium to purchase the card,
I'll mitigate that by buying high value cards to reduce the cost as a percentage of the dollar amount.

And being a smart shopper..more mitigation with great deals.

Are you agreeing or disagreeing with Snowy See Profile? Are you saying there are "great deals" on prepaid cards? I don't quite get your comment.

Because it was not for you..nevertheless..has to do with great deals one can find..same product lower prices and a reason to shop online..also since you do prepay them..I think people tend to be more cautious when to use them for a purchase at bricknmortar.
