Re: Hmmm Everyone has one- make a pin purchase of a soda for $2 and get cash back free at a local store.
said by Crookshanks:Stamps are $0.49 as of this Sunday (January 26) so soon that $0.46 will be a past price.
USPS is a good bet too. One stamp is $0.46 and they'll give you up to $50 in cash back.
Possibly useful to international students Depending on how easy it is to deposit money into this, I could see international students studying in the U.S. liking this. If it's convenient to set up, they can do everything when they get a local cell number, and they're off and running. Then, if they've got a job at their school, they can get their pay deposited straight to their card each pay period.
I'm thinking that this service won't make T-Mobile much money, but it will certainly bring in customers. Plus, add in their free international data roaming, and these students will love this, since they can use their phones when they go home for breaks, especially when you factor in T-Mobile's wi-fi calling feature.
said by elray:What does uninsured have to do with anything??? I was uninsured for years when I was young. I made plenty of money, I had a checking/saving and brokerage account but no insure for a few years....Why would anyone count the uninsured as not having bank accounts??? You're right about illegals and accounts but they tend to distrust banks and prefer cash. In fact the like the US currency better then their home countries for sure.
It is assumed, incorrectly, that the 30 million illegals are unbanked. Add to that the oft-cited 47 million uninsured and food stamp recipients, and you have a big number.
