    I used a Freedom prepaid MC for 2 or 3 years and had no problems. Got it at the Cash Store. High fees though, $8/month, $2.50 to load the card and $1.50 per transaction.

    I had the identical experience and found it too expensive to suit my taste.It was also difficult to track the balance, but that was probably just me :tongue:

    Were I to do it again, I'd get a pre-paid card from Target, either VI, MC or Amex. They're all available and can't possibly be any worse than the Freedom card.

    Seems like the Greendot pre-paid cards come with quite a few perks. Check it out?
