Last week I had the opportunity to go shopping using an Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card to get my Christmas shopping going. I had left my Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card on the counter the night before and in the morning I simply couldn’t find it. After some frantic searching, I found it on my daughter’s dresser.
When I asked her about it she blinked at me innocently and said “Oh, I thought it was a gift for me because you KNOW how much I love Angry Birds…”. Sigh…well the good news is that she can have one in her stocking AND I’d be Mom of the year for a minute. I loaded up some extra money onto my card and headed out.
In the past when I’ve used a prepaid card, I’ve found they don’t work at many stores. This wasn’t the case with the Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card. I went to three different stores and each transaction was smooth as silk!
I scored some GREAT deals…and even managed to get myself some GORGEOUS boots!
What is Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card?
Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card is not a credit card, it’s a card which you must pre-load funds onto and as you use the card any expenses (including fees) will be deducted. Essentially you are budgeting BEFORE you are shopping.
To get your own card you head to Paymobile.com/angrybirds, sign up by answering some simple questions and load your funds using an Interact Debit Card. Once you’ve done this your card will be mailed to you.
The Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card can be used online or in person Internationally, anywhere Visa is accepted. It can also be used at debit machines to withdraw cash.
With this card you get 1.5% cash back when you shop at your favourite stores, have the ability to track your balance on their website and even receive a text message when a purchase is made.
If you choose a solo plan there is no fee, there is also a Family Bundle which allows you to do FREE card to card transfers.
Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card as a Christmas Gift
Anyone over the age of 13 can carry an Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card which makes it a fabulous Christmas gift! These teens can use the card to make purchases or withdraw from an ATM. Imagine, no more calls asking for money or embarrassing moments when you don’t have cash on you.
This is the perfect choice for my niece and nephew. With one in high school and the other in University, I have to admit I’m at a loss when it comes to their tastes. This card will be something they can use to buy something special for themselves and they can reload it in future.
Because there is no approvals process, this becomes a fantastic first time card for anyone. It allows us to teach our children budgeting before they enter the world of amassing credit. My daughter may seem young at 9 years old, but we are going to take the chance to begin teaching her to spend wisely. She will be able to use this for her iTunes purchases and I can easily load her allowance for her to spend.
