Default pre paid visa card

What do you think about pre paid visa cards, no minimum spend, you can spend 5 dhs only, monthly statement at the end of the month!

Would you opt for one!

Its pre paid, not a credit card such! But regulated by Visa! If you had no cash wanted a packet of ciggies, whatever, most shops have a min spend of approx 20 dhs, with this you can spend as little as you want. You dont have to carry cash, u can give to your kids for emergencies, if they are out. lose their cash.

Its a new product coming! Would you get one!

If somebody was capable of losing their cash then surely they would be more than capable of losing their pre-paid credit card...my answer is a definite NO.

So....it's a switch card then? Nice to see the UAE at the forefront of retail banking innovation again...
