The account now visa card was perfect for me to use for online purchases. I don’t like using my regular credit card online to avoid fraud issues so I picked myself up one of these. It was great for me to use to make a separate paypal account as well as an ebay account. I feel safer having one of these linked online instead of my actual visa card.

I really love this card. I was worried when I began working online that maybe I would not be able to receive payment because I don't have a bank account. After some research, I learned that I could use this card to get payments made to me.

The card was mailed to me very, very quickly.

The only think I do not like about this card is the dollar fee for each transaction. It really adds up. usually I just make one transaction and use cash back to get all my cash off the card,

I know of 8 different people plus myself who used Account Now for their tax refund because of the early delivery of the funds. Account Now accepted our tax returns and after about 4 days they suddenly blocked the cards. One person was in the middle of shopping when her card got blocked. They could not give an explanation as to why it was blocked only that documents were needed to confirm identity. We have sent these people our whole life documents and still no release of the funds. After they got our documents they proceeded to say they closed the account and sent the money back to the IRS more

I'm having the same problem right now. But with mine they sent a card and I never received it. So they asked for my info and I sent it three times and they still tell me they don't have it wait 24 hours. It has been two weeks now and counting.

I can remember many months ago when I got my accountnow prepaid visa. I was happy to have a card that I could charge if I needed to go on a trip for hotels, car rentals and the like. The card allowed me to be more versatile with my spending. Even while in grocery stores I felt special while having my account now prepaid card. I have used the card when I travel and in helping me send money to my daughter. The account now prepaid card is a great way to get paid. If you want your paycheck on your card, all you have to do is fill out more

I have not had any problems witht this card. I applied online and received the card in about a week. I was originally going to get this for my son so I could put money on it every month instead of having to go to the bank and either physically hand it to him or go to his bank and put it in his bank account. But then I decided to try it out for myself before hand. I like the card but I ended up going with a different card for my son that didn't have any fees. I didn't want him to have to put any of his more

I have this card currently. I wasn't sure about really getting the card at first because I had never had a credit card at the point. After searching around for a while I came to a the conclusion that I should first try out these prepaid cards instead of the usually classic credit card. All of my friends had told me that they have had the regular credit cards and regret getting them. Mostly because of the debt that they gained, but with this I feel more comfortable. I also had no credit when I first got this card and because I never really had an issue with it I more

I have this card. I have never had any issues with it. The balance is always what is expected.
However I do not believe their site to login is very secure. All the require is your last name, your social and your zip code. I prefer using a username and password. I think it is easier for someone to hack into your information and get into your credit card account with just that.
The huge issue I have with this card is, it's more expensive than lots of other prepaid card. Is costs almost $10.00 a month to keep active. Wow! Most cards are only $3-4.00. The fees to cancel and more

My father started me off with this Prepaid Visa Credit Card for my birthday about a month ago. It is the best possible solution for our money problems. Ever since my parents were separated, it was hard for my dad to get money to me. He would have to transfer money into my bank account and then I would have to go to my bank and take it out. Now, my dad just reloads my AccountNow card. It’s as simple as 1-2-3. It takes all the hassle out of ATMs and banks accounts for someone who is a young student like myself. For just a small start up fee, you more

I was given a Prepaid Visa card as a present and I must say it has been fantastic! No hassles, no worries, no payments. I've used my card everywhere without a hassle: online shopping, gas stations, shopping malls. And what is great is that the balance is easy to figure out, either by a quick phone call to an automated register, or by checking online. Oh, and I forgot to mention, the card doesn't expire for like 6 years, so not a worry about being screwed over. Great for road trips and travel and college! A big name company which offers support and security without any hassles of bills.

I had a great experience with the Account Now Pre-Paid Visa card. I was having some problems with my credit, so I needed to use a prepaid credit card. It was easy to use - I could reload it through direct deposit or at a large selection of locations. There is no monthly fee; only the $4.95 initial activation fee. If you cancel your Account Now Pre-Paid card account, you are only eligible to apply for an Account Now Pre-Paid Visa card one more time. The customer service department is very pleasant. They really make it easy to do whatever you have to do quickly. I had fewer hassles with more

I signed up for the AccountNow Pre-Paid Visa about a month ago and received it in the mail a little less than a week later. Even though I have good credit, I wanted a card that would curb my spending shopping online. I thought this would help give me some financial discipline. I like that this card is exactly what you make of it. Not having to worry about my credit card bill every month is a huge sigh of relief for me. The customer service is very easy and I can handle everything on the AccountNow website. The excessive fees are annoying because I also have to factor in more

I really like my Account Now card. It is easy to load and easy to use with minimal fees. I have had several different types of cards over they years and the Account now card is very simple to use as well as other people can send me money though it. I work on line doing data entry work and I need an easy access account that I can post many small transactions to over the month when they come in for my various jobs.
this card has made that a lot easier to do. The card also accepts western Union, Money gram and green-dot refill payments.. which is really more

I always get a kick out of credit card and prepaid card branding. Prepaid cards are often used by people who can’t get approved for a traditional checking account, so it makes perfect sense that there is a prepaid card called the AccountNow Prepaid Visa. The name alone seems to satisfy a major need for the target audience. But simply being able to get a prepaid card isn’t your only consideration, you should strive to minimize costs too. (Another reason people get prepaid cards is that they want a cheaper checking alternative in the face of new bank fees).

Does the Account Now Prepaid Card allow you to minimize fees? That more
