That's funny lol.

After what I heard, I wanted to crawl under a rock and die when someone saw me using it. The card just screams prepaid too much for my liking and I'm sure people are whispering, "look at the deadbeat with the prepaid card." Okay the idea was good, but you are combining Amex with Wal*Mart....you know "I need to go to Wal*Mart but can't find my pajamas." Yeah, that store.
Prepaid cards aren't all that bad. People may choose to have them over checking accounts because they may not meet the criteria to avoid the monthly fees. I have a BlueBird and that card is bringing me some nice chunk of change with the vanilla method. I also have accounts with BoA and Chase.
