Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone had any advice on prepaids for depositing ? Its been awhile since Ive used one and the last time I tried the netspend no longer worked . Any suggestions ?? Thanks
Prepaid Visa giftcards that I purchase at my local credit union, work everywhere that I play.
You can purchase in any denomination up to $500 per card for a $3 fee.
I like it because it keeps the transactions off my debit card account or other cc.
Netspend worked for me during the holidays. I did NOT try INetBet as in the past my old NS card had been 'flagged' more than once after deposits there (card was eventually blocked or locked or whatever and I never tried to get it up and going again). Something to do with deposits showing as I NET BET .... LOL That was a couple of years ago. Got a new Netspend at Xmas time... deposited uneven amounts online... 49.89... etc. And I didn't make more than one deposit per day anywhere.
I have no clue about withdrawing. It's really weird these days.
FYI, I've not at any luck with green dot cards as they aren't coded for international transactions.
one reason I have never tried prepaid cards is I don't want to tie up my money in a card and then it doesn't go through at the casino I am trying play.
I think regular cards work just as well anyway.
Netspend has the option of being able to transfer money from your bank to the card for $1.95. After you get the account verified, it works like a charm. Only problem for some will be that you can't transfer but so much at a time. But keeps your real bank from getting nosy and NS doesn't care.
Yes and there is also an option to send money from a personal account to netspend via way of bill pay from your own bank. This doesn't cost anything but it is not instant.
As others said, I don't use my bank account because I don't want to answer any questions from my bank. That happened once but it's not going to happen again. Prepaid works for me and for those who said you don't want to tie your money up, it doesn't. You can always spend it at any retail location.
One reason I don't use my credit union issued Visa debit card is that I don't want them to know what I'm doing. I could care less what the prepaid card folks think.
What makes you think they will know what you are doing? Your comment shows lack of understanding about how your deposits charges are processed.
I am not telling you that your way is not as good as mine. I am only saying that my way hasn't ever caused me problems with my card issuer in the 5plus years I have played. But, you need to know how the system operates and your legal rights when it comes to credit or debit charges to feel comfortable I guess.
