As one of the biggest card processors in the world, MasterCard is a name many Australian’s already have in their wallets.
But if you want a debit card for one-off expenses, sometimes a prepaid option is the way to go.
Whether it is for a trip overseas, a gift or for safer shopping online, prepaid MasterCard debit cards give you a chance to spend money anywhere you want.
But there is also a wide range of issuers offering MasterCard prepaid debit cards, particularly when it comes to shopping in particular places or going overseas. These include the following options:
- The Woolworths Everyday Money Reloadable MasterCard – this prepaid card is ideal for developing and sticking to a shopping budget. All you have to do is put a set amount of money on the card and use it when and where you need.
- The Toshiba’s Prepaid MasterCard – an option that makes it easier to receive any Toshiba rebates by allowing the company to deposit the money directly to the prepaid card.
- The Cash Passport Prepaid Currency Card – the new MasterCard option gives people access funds at millions of MasterCard ATMs around the world and can also be used to make purchases at over 29 million MasterCard merchants worldwide or online.
These three brands offer prepaid MasterCard debit cards for very different reasons, but all of them can be used for a wide range of purchases and other conveniences.
The only thing to remember is that sometimes prepaid cards will come with registration or activation fees, as well as transaction fees that could eat away at the balance.
But if you check out these details before choosing a card you should be able to make any prepaid option affordable and convenient. That way you can use your money in any way you want without needing to access your bank account every time.
