    I like the BlueBird card out of them all simply because it is American Express. They always have my respect as a tier 1 card.

    I imagine these will grow in popularity as the holiday shopping season is here.

    Very nice to know and I will surely put one of these in my rotation since I buy things online.

    Update: some of these cards do have a reload fee, and/or an inactivity fee after 90 days.

    That kind of cancels out the "zero" aspect and brings on hidden fees. Plus, you have to wait for these zero cards to arrive in the mail.
    I simply bought a few prepaid cards as xmas gifts for relatives and paid the $3.95 activation fee.

    This is a good list. Thanks for sharing.

    You're welcome.

    These cards are great to help your teenagers manage money, especially if they are away for the summer. If I gave my son a full blown credit card, it would be like handing him keys to a Ferrari.

    As we are getting into summer, this is a good time to remind people about this list of low fee / no fee prepaid cards that Mr Cards put together.

    As he says, can be a lot safer to give to teenagers traveling for the summer or heading off to school than handing them a full blown credit card.

    This is a good list. And with the new debit card rules, we will see even more low fee cards. Finally.
