I like the idea of a prepaid card, because once the money is used up you just plain don't have it. That way you can avoid overdraft fees, or spending too much on a credit card. I also like the fraud protection that comes with this card. As i understand it, this is not always a usual for prepaid cards, and so that is nice. However, I don't like the fees for balance inquires.

This card isn't that bad compared to what most people say. I actually like it, mainly because it comes with a zero liability fraud protection by Master Card. I have another prepaid card that does not offer this kind of added protection and this is something that someone like me could use mainly for having out of town expenditures. I don't mind that it also comes with a bit bigger monthly fee, but for the protection it offers, I think this is absolutely worth it.

I like the Mango Prepaid Card because the fees to use and own it are not high at all. I currently have a Walmart Prepaid Visa that I use. The monthly fee isn't much, but with the Mango Prepaid I could have the fee waived simply by loading $500 per calendar month, which would be easy to do with the direct deposit feature. I also really like that I can transfer money into my savings with a text message. I think this is a very good card.

This is a prepaid card, not a traditional credit card. However, this particular prepaid offers some benefits that many of the others do not. For example, this comes with a zero liability fraud protection by master card. Many prepaid credit cards do not offer this sort of protection. However, this comes at a larger monthly fee than many of its competitors, but the extra peace of mind offered by the Mango prepaid card by MasterCard is worth it.

This is a good card for people who can't or don't want to, for whatever reason, open a checking or savings account. This is a prepaid card, not a credit card. There will be a fee no matter what ATM you use, but there is no fee for pin transactions. If you sign up for direct deposit, you can open a savings account for as little as $1. Again, if you have bad credit or bad relationships with credit unions or banks, this is one of the only ways you'll be able to get a savings account. There are no fees for direct deposit if you have at least 2 more

The Mango Prepaid Card has some good features and some not so good ones. A couple things that appear to be good are that you can get wireless alerts of purchases, your money is insured by the FDIC for up to $250,000, and you have zero liability protection against fraudulent charges. On the downside you have a $5 monthly maintenance fee unless you load $500 each calendar month, you have to pay a $0.50 fee for both live and automated customer support, and there is a $10 cancellation fee if you decide to stop using it. Seeing as there aren't really any overwhelming perks, I don't know why instead you more

The Mango Prepaid Card has great benefits like live customer support, MasterCard Zero liability protection for fraud charges, and my favorite plus about the card is that I don't need to have a traditional bank card or checking account, which is really convenient for me. I used to have a Journey Student Rewards card because I'm in college but ever since the switch to this card I've saved a lot of time and rebuild a little bit of my credit. 4 stars.

The Mango Prepaid Card is just that, a Prepaid card. It has a $5 fee on it unless you deposit 500 dollars per month on it which isn't too bad of a fee per se. However, the APR% on it is really nice, it's 13.99% to 19.99% which is very low, but then again it is a prepaid card and not a credit card so this functions as a debit card. The card's account does have direct deposit options which are very useful for me, too. Overall I'd give this 3 and a half stars.

The Mango Prepaid Mastercard is a great alternative to a bank debit card for easy cash access. The free direct deposit option is a great way to load funds. I feel that the $2 ATM fee is a bit high. The Mango Card lets me book hotels and flights without having a checking account through a traditional bank. Since I am rebuilding my credit, this is very helpful for me!

This is a pretty standard card. The Mango Prepaid Mastercard does not go above and beyond anything. There are no special perks it offers, and doesn't have an appeal that would make you want to use it more than any other card. It's nice for those who don't want to have a bank account, but otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it to those with one.

The Mango Prepaid Card seems to have much more to offer than other prepaid cards, like the PNC SmartAccess Card. The RentSafe feature seems particularly interesting to me. This looks like a card that I might consider some time soon!

The Mango Prepaid Card seems pretty nice when compared to my Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, but I'm not sure I would abandon mine for it. I enjoy that most aspects of the card do not cost money, but the monthly fee really hurts, because loading $500 a month isn't always the easiest thing to do -- especially when things are tight around the holidays. No activation fee is great, but the cancellation fee scares me. But with no inactivity fee there's no reason to cancel. Wireless and text alerts are a great feature that I would use almost daily!

Overall, I think the Mango prepaid card is a nice card. I do not like being charged for the balance inquiry but as long as you keep a book that shouldn't be an issue and my Payoneer card also charges for balance inquiries so it is common. Also, they only require $500 a month to be loaded onto the card which is perfect for my PT job. I would recommend this card to people who perhaps don't have/want a bank account but need to make online transactions.

The Mango Prepaid Card is a great card in my opinion. It enables someone with any credit history or even bad credit to enjoy some benefit that a cardholder would, like being able to shop online or setup a bill pay. They do charge you a fee if your don't load $500 a month but its minimal. Other prepaid cards such as AccountNow will charge you a fee per transaction. I recommend this card for those needed access to a Card but unable to secure credit.

The Mango Prepaid Card seems like a really great credit card for someone who doesn't have a lot of credit experience. The option to prepay on the card is a great way to learn how to pay the bill each month (and to build some credit history). While there is a small fee ($5) if you don't load at least $500 a month, it is very nominal compared to my Capital One Visa. They charge me a $12 monthly fee which I find a bit high. I also love that your money is FDIC insured. That's a huge plus! Some find the extra charges to be a negative, but I more

As a prepaid card the Mango Prepaid Card really misses the mark for me. I find it much more acceptable to pay fees on cards that are lending you money, but having to pay to check your balance and contact customer support just has the potential to add up. Its a decent card if you're okay with those terms, but generally speaking they fall short of the standards set by many of their competitors.

The Mango prepaid comes in with a lot of hidden charges. To start off, $0.5 for enquiry and customer support is absolutely ridiculous. I wonder where on earth are these people! There are far more banks that offer fantastic services. I have been using the prepaid and debit cards linked to my salary account that comes in with lots of features like unlimited free transfers, including IMPS, $0 balance in the account for unlimited time. Though it would be a far fetched idea to expect such offers from an ordinary account, its ridiculous to pay for customer support or pay charges for maintaining the minimum balance for less than $500. more

The Mango prepaid card does have some perks with but also seems to have a lot of hidden fees. Some things I like about it would be it offers good protection from fraudulent charges which is always good to have now days, and also offers RentSafe which can help you replace your belongings in case of a fire, or theft. Some things I don't find very appealing is just to cancel your card you have to pay a 10 dollar cancellation fee which is just crazy! Also you get charged 2.00 dollars every time you use an atm and that's not evening including the whatever the atm charges also. I more

The Mango Prepaid Card seems like it has a ton of hidden fees. I think you would be better off opening an account at a credit union or bank and getting a debit card. There may not be an activation fee, but a $10 fee to close your account – you’ve got to be kidding me! Plus $2 to take cash out of any ATM (on top of any fees the ATM charges) and a $5 a month fee for the privilege of having the card (if you don’t have at least a $500 direct deposit). Avoid all of these fees and just go to the local bank down the more

The benefits of the Mango Prepaid Card are pretty neat. It's a good card for people who get their paycheck deposited electronically because there isn't a monthly fee if you get $500/month loaded onto your Mango account. I like the fact that there isn't an activation fee and credit and debit transactions are free. As a comparison, the Ace Elite Prepaid Debit Card doesn't have an activation fee but you have to pay $1 for credit transactions and $2 for debit transactions. One thing that I don't like about the Mango card is the $2 fee for ATM withdrawals because each ATM already has a $1-$2 fee. Also, I don't more

The only real redeeming value I can find for the Mango Prepaid card is that it allows you access to Mango's saving account which apparently offer 6% APY on your money, which is high above the average level of interest at the moment. However, the card itself seems mediocre. You will get nickle and dimed for everything you do with the card short of straight transactions. Want to use an ATM, any ATM? There's a fee. Check your balance? Fee (even for using the automated system!). Don't load at least $500 onto the card in a month? Fee. There's even a fee to cancel the card if you get sick more

If you desire a prepaid card to spend a large amount on every month, then the Mango Prepaid Card might be a good fit. If you load at least $500 a month onto the card, then it is free month-to-month, but if you load less than this, there is a $5 monthly fee. However, there are more potential fees associated with the card, as well: you have to pay 50 cents to check your balance, whether it be live or automated. They also charge $2 for ATM use and $10 to cancel the card. In the case that you need a prepaid card, this might be a good fit if more

I like the fact that I only need to load $500 on the Mango card to waive the monthly fee, compared to the $1,000 I have to load on my Greendot Walmart money card to waive the $5 fee. I also like the fact that I can check my balance for FREE online, with no inquiry charge. The only thing I don't like is that if you have to CALL for an inquiry or for customer service it's $0.50. I like that there is also no inactivity fee. My Greendot will slap me with a $3 fee every month even if I am not using my card at all. That more

I needed a prepaid card to protect myself from some fraud as I didn't want to attach a regular card in case that they were going to overcharge, since the dealer was sort of shady. This card worked perfectly for that and gave me an option to be able to set a limit as to what funds the dealer had access to. There are a good amount of fees associated with the card, but depending on what you plan to use it for, it might not be too bad for you. There are definitely some good uses for this card, but you should check the details of the card as more

I am no fan of credit cards. Never had one, never will. Unfortunately in todays day and age, one needs some sort of electronic currency, and I'm no exception. I have been using prepaid cards for years now. The one I currently use is a GreenDot Prepaid Visa, but I may consider switching. The monthly fees for this card are nearly a dollar cheaper. It's not much, but it adds up. Sure it has an ATM fee, but I don't withdraw from ATMs anyway. I can get cash back at WalMart or something if I really need cash. It's also a neat feature you can transfer money via text. Don't more

This is a pretty good alternative to people who do not want or can not have a credit card. It would be much more convenient than carrying a wad of cash on you. Although some of the fees are a little out there, such as the $.50 balance check fee or the $5 fee for not having at least $500 in your account at any given time, many people would still find this service useful

The Mango prepaid credit card is a great alternative to a regular CC card because you will never go over your limit. There are many options out there that are similar to this like green dot cards and just your average debit card. Mango's card is alright for the average person looking for a disposable credit card to fill out website forms, or just to have to keep out of your weekly bills you get in the mail. Some cons of this is the monthly fee and cancellation fee, if you do not have over 500$ in your account you will get fined 5$ a month, and to stop their more

While it can be convenient for some, this card seems to have too many fees attached to it. It costs $0.50 every time that one wants to check their balance. That adds up pretty quickly. Plus fees to withdraw and a minimum balance are just too much hassle for a Prepaid card. One might as well just open up a checking account! I would suggest getting an American Express Prepaid Card. There is only one fee, a 2 dollar withdrawal fee. But even then you get a certain amount of withdrawals free monthly before they become charged. The best feature however is the ability to check one's balance at anytime more

I would not suggest the Mango Prepaid Card for anyone, mainly because of all the fees associated with it. There's a $5 monthly fee unless you load $500 a month, so basically you have to use your direct deposit or else you will be paying to use your own money. Then there is a $2 fee just for pulling your own money out of an ATM, on top of whatever the ATM charges. And then if you want to find out how much you have left on the card, it costs 50 cents if you don't do it online! However, this is one of the better prepaid cards, as many more

I would avoid the Mango Prepaid Card at all costs and instead get something like the Amex Serve card which has a lot fewer fees. This card might promise 6% APY on the money you are putting into savings with them, but you'll see any interest you earn go away in the form of fees. For example, a simply ATM withdrawal is $2. If you have $4,000 in savings with them and do one ATM withdrawal a month, all your interest is going to go towards those ATM fees. I would get another card that doesn't have so many fees if you can do it.

The Mango Prepaid Card appears to be a great prepaid card for those that need a simple savings account or somewhere for their direct deposit to be placed. However, after you dig deeper it is evident that the Mango card has a TON of pitfalls in the form of fees. They charge .50 to inquire about your balance, .50 if you need to speak to someone in customer service, $2 to withdraw money in the ATM, $5 if you don't keep $500 in the account monthly... and if you don't like that and want to cancel? Ten dollars! I'd much rather pay an activation fee that most prepaid cards require more

I cannot recommend the Mango Prepaid Card because of all the fees associated with it. If you are not putting in at least $500 a month onto the card, you are going to get hit with a $5 monthly fee, $2 ATM fee, 50 cents every time you call customer support, and 50 cents each time you check your balance. On top of all that, there is a $10 cancellation fee. I would recommend going with american Express Serve over this card, especially if you have Direct Deposit set up. This is no reason to pay so many fees just to spend your own money from a prepaid card.

No activation fee on a prepaid card! It should be standard, but it's not. So many prepaid cards just nickel and dime you so hard that it's not worth it. This Mango Prepaid Card's monthly fee is also waived if you load $500 per month. That's a great deal, very easy to reach that amount if you're getting direct deposit. There are better cards out there, though, like Bluebird. This card charges $0.50 to check your balance! And $2 to withdraw from an ATM, which would be in addition to whatever fee the ATM owner charges (usually $2-4). The Mango is better than most, but worse than some. It sounds more

The Mango Prepaid Card is a breath of fresh air in the world of prepaid credit cards. Normally as soon as you activate a prepaid card you are hit with so many fees that it just doesn't seem worth it. The Mango Prepaid Card on the other hand has almost no fees for most transactions. This is really unique in the case of prepaid credit cards, because they count on people having no other option. The Mango Prepaid Credit Card is great for people who prefer to use prepaid credit cards. I can absolutely recommend it 100%, and I bet you won't be disappointed if you try it.

The Mango Prepaid Card is a MasterCard for people who are just getting their first credit cards or just want to transfer money to another account. There's a monthly fee of $5 a month, and a $2.00 transaction at ATM, which is somewhat of a downer. It's a pretty barebones card that doesn't offer anything special. The benefits to having this card is having a free Direct Deposit system with 6 free transfers a month. You also get fraud protection from Master Card and FDIC-insured to $250,000. Comparing this to the American Express Serve Prepaid Card, it's definitely on par and the only real difference is that American Express has more

The Mango Prepaid Card is an excellent card for those who cant yet manage to get a real credit card or just need a prepaid debt to transfer money on instead of using a bank account. I've used the Mango for years and its been a god send. Money actually transfers fast to my Mango Prepaid card then it does to my back account. The only down side is that when you take money out there is a 2$ flat fee, unless you find a fee free atm that small stores like wawa of 711 have in them. I highly recommend this card.

The Mango Prepaid Card is not a great option if you're looking for a prepaid card. I think that the Bluebird Prepaid Card is better - no activation fee, no monthly fee, no fees! If you want to withdraw cash from an ATM with the Mango Prepaid Card, expect a $2 charge! And a $5 monthly charge for maintenance? Yuck. And if you call the customer service to check your balance? 50 cents! The Bluebird offers free balance checks! I would much rather get a Bluebird Prepaid Card, so leave the Mango behind. I don't need fees to dock my hard earned money.

The Mango Prepaid Mastercard seems like an alright option if your only choices are prepaid cards. They offer a direct deposit option which is becoming the standard for most prepaid cards, much like my prepaid Wal Mart Visa card. I don't like the fact that it costs you 50 cents each time you'd like to check your balance, though. I feel like that should be a free, standard option for every single card in existence because you can't always keep up with what you've purchased. It cost me $4 to activate my Wal Mart Prepaid Visa Card but with the Mango Prepaid Card it's free, which is very nice. I more

I have been very satisfied with this card. In all honesty, I have been wanting to steer away from mainstream bank affiliated cards because the fees are outrageous. I have been a cardholder with this company for over a year. Mango offers the freedom of having a card which can be used as either debit or credit, the ability to transfer money or receive payments from anyone, as well as a routing and account number. The customer service is completely helpful, and the website is secure. I don't have to worry about overdraft charges - if the money is not available there is no risk in assessing unneccesary fees.

I don't really understand the advantage of a prepaid card vs. having a bank account with a debit card, other than fees. You still need to report full information about yourself, including SS#, etc. and it seems more of a hassle to load money on it - you need to transfer from a bank anyway, or use PayPal or Green Dot. What am I missing?
