Family Finance: The best and worst prepaid debit cards

Posted: Updated:

Prepaid debits cards are becoming more and more popular among consumers, but before you buy you need to be aware of the hidden fees.

Prepaid debit cards are best for anyone who has a tough time building or fixing their credit score. Bankrate just released their 2013 Prepaid Debit Card Survey and found not all cards are created equal.

Some of the worst cards include the AchieveCard Prepaid Visa, the Moneygram AccountNow Prepaid Visa Debit Card, and the Univision MasterCard Prepaid Card. All of these cards have a whopping $9.95 monthly maintenance fee.

Some of the best cards include the American Express Prepaid Card has absolutely no fees whatsoever. The Bluebird by American Express for Wal-Mart Card and Stagecoach Prepaid Card are good options, too.
