Trust me. You do not want to go through all the trouble for a prepaid credit card. Just get a one time use Visa gift card.
I am going through the nightmare of this stupid prepaid wal-mart credit card right now and it is a pain in the ass.
Unless you plan to keep the card for a long time and are willing to pay the $ 3 monthly fee after you buy it then don’t get one….and if your not 18 then one of your parents will have to be present to give their consent and some info when you activate it over the phone (I don’t think you would be able to do it online since your guardian has to give consent). This process takes about half an hour.
So. All of that said just go to Rite Aid or Walgreen’s and get a Visa Gift Card that gives you the choice of how much you want to load (some of them have preset prices) Just be sure the amount you put on is at least $ 25 or else you won’t be able to get one. O..and you can buy one of these no matter how young you are.
