Does anyone use prepaid Visa/MC cards to shop with at online scrapbook stores? I am thinking about doing this. Any thoughts?

I don't see why not. In fact, others have suggested this when there seemed to be a rash of invalid charges showing up on cc after purchasing from certain websites.

I use a walmart visa card for my online purchases. I only put money on it when I plan on using it.

I have one prepaid card I use for online purchases that I can't use paypal for. It makes it easier to prevent CC fraud and I only put what I need on the card or my allowance. Check with your bank many offer prepaid cards. At my bank kids get prepaid cards instead of debit cards. I got my oldest 2 one and that is how they get their allowance. No more loosing cash. It is easy to manage. I can manage how much they can spend in one transaction and how much they are allowed to withdraw at the ATM. It is a great way to teach them how to spend.

I use a pre-paid card for all my purchases online....Two peas, Amazon, and I-tunes....I even have my paypal acct set-up with my Walmart prepaid card. It only costs $3 to load it!


It was fate that I would enjoy paper crafts...my name is Sharmon (like the TP)!
