i was just wondering if anyone here had seen the commercial on the RUSHCARD.? it is a prepaid visa ( just like netspend) but it states that you can have money sent to it . unlike my casino winnings at different casinos i cannot send money back to my netspend. i know ive read that the wire plastic can have money sent to it but with the rushcard you can deposit and transfer any funds from anywhere. i just seen it and thought about trying it. it would be great to not have to worry about my winnings sent from qt account to my bank account. and i could just reuse the funds however and whenever i want.

Haven't seen the commercial but will check it out. The problem with some of those cards is that you can't use them for gambling online.

I use Wired Plastic and have absolutely no problem with it. Plus it works anywhere. Gas station , grocery store, ATM's and online.

RUSHCARD doesn't take wire transfers so that will eliminate QT transfers as they are wires.

I have researched this alot and I think Wired Plastic is the only one that does take wires.

Hi Anniemac,

Wirecard provides a similar service and you can use it a similar way as you do with Wired Plastic.
A friend uses their physical card to be funded by wire and then withraws from ATMs. He is European, but I believe they also allow US clients to signup for that card. You would need to find out.

If I remember correctly, you need to provide a certified ID (confirmed by your bank or a notary or so) to get your physical card, but I believe that's the only hurdle.

checkout www.wirecard.com/wirecard for further details.

Here is the relevant part of their FAQ:
