AchieveCard: an Easy Way To Carry Cash

This past January, while traveling in Italy, I was the victim of a pickpocket. My wallet was stolen while I was on a crowded bus. I vowed that I would never carry cash anymore as that's what the thieves want. They don't want credit cards as those require an ID in order to be useful. A prepaid MasterCard from AchieveCard would have made the theft useless to the thief. The card can be used anywhere that prepaid debit MasterCard is accepted and with the AchieveCard, I wouldn't have had to carry cash nor would I have been held responsible for charges on the card if it had been lost or stolen.

You can enroll quickly and easily for an AchieveCard. Complete the online application and you'll receive the card in approximately 7-10 business days. There is a one-time application/fulfillment fee. To use the card you'll need to load/put money on the card either through direct deposit ( which is great for either part or all of your paycheck) or do a cash load.

Use the prepaid debit card to economically pay your bills online. With the price increases in postal rates and money orders, this is an efficient, economical and convenient way to conduct business. Many people don't have checking accounts so this is the ideal and secure way to store your money. Each month, your first 3 electronic bill pay items are free.

With AchieveCard's prepaid debit card, you'll never overspend as you can't spend more than you have on the card. This is definitely a helpful budgeting tool. Find out more about prepaid debit cards and prepaid credit cards to help you through these difficult economic times.
