Just imagine getting a major credit card with no credit check, no hassle and no banks to deal with. All you have to do is load money on to the card and off you go. You do your shopping, gas buying or rent a car. As a matter of most car rental require you use a credit car to rent a car.
If you're like most people today you would probably rather use a card for your purchases rather than carry a lot of money around. A prepaid card is a good way to do just that and the Visa Green Dot Card is a good way to get started.
