A few months ago, I was a bit skeptical about the power of these prepaid cards, but the fact that the first time I tried one out, I wasn’t disappointed.
It was a $30 gift card that I got in the mail, and I didn’t feel like I’d wasted my money on a $25 gift card.
So, I didn: I had it in my account for about a week, but I wasnít using it.
I think I saved $25 on that gift card, but it probably would have been even better had I tried it a week earlier.
And then, on Sunday, I got a phone call from a guy who wanted to buy my gift card to get me into the store, because he wanted to save some money.
He told me that the company would refund me the $25 I spent on the card.
I thought, What the heck, I have a $50 gift card in my card, Iíll use it, and it would be worth the cost to be refunded.
I called the number, and a lady answered the phone.
“Can you please come over here and take this gift card?
I need it for an appointment for my doctor today.”
She said, Yes, that would be great.
I looked at the card and said, “I donít even have $50 in my wallet, so I canít spend $50.
So what can I use this for?”
And she said, Itís really important for me to get my doctor appointment today.
So I picked up the card, and she gave me this gift certificate.
She said that the card was going to cost me $30, and the $50 would be refundable.
I asked what kind of appointment it would cost, and if she wanted to go over and see me, I could pay the difference, and get the card back.
But that was it.
The company was refunding me a ton of money.
It wasní t until I tried to use the card again and asked her for the full refund, that I discovered that Iíd spent $35 on the gift card!
What does that tell me about prepaid cards?
I have to say, it doesnít really make sense that the $30 would have a refund value, because it doesn’t sound like the card had any value.
So letís go back to that $30 I spent, which I could have spent on other things.
I went to the store and got the card to use for my next appointment, and then I went back to my bank and asked for the $15 refund.
I got that, too, but when I got back to the bank, I saw that the value of the card wasníll have a negative value.
I can use the $20 to pay for a new cellphone, for my kids to get to the movies, or for a trip out to the beach.
So the card has a negative dollar value.
But when you try to use it for something, it will have a value, and that value will be a $15.
But now youíre not really saving $25.
I spent $20 on a gift card with a $5 value, which was a good amount of money to have.
But it is very difficult to spend $25 and get a gift, because you doní t have to pay the $5 back.
It costs you $30.
I had an appointment today, and at least $15 will be refund, and my wife was really happy.
But the giftcard has no value.
And if you really want to spend your money, you can always get a good gift card from the stores, like the $10 gift cards.
But if you don’t want to go to the trouble of saving money, then you should probably look at prepaid cards.
