Last week I told you about how I got an American Express Prepaid card to use while I was at the BlogHer conference in San Diego. The conference ended last night and I’m about to leave San Diego so I wanted to let you know how awesome this card is!
I was able to load the money on the card so easily and also used a MoneyPak to load the card as well. You purchase the MoneyPak at stores like CVS and Walgreens and pay a $4.95 fee. You tell them how much you want on the MoneyPak and pay the cashier in cash for it. Then log on to American Express and add the funds from the MoneyPak – super simple and instant money on your card!
Like I said last week, the prepaid card is perfect when you’re traveling or want to stay on a budget. I’ve used it during the trip for incidentals on my hotel bill, shipping packages at UPS and even in cabs! Everyone I have told about the card thinks it is great and I do too. Did I mention there are no fees associated with the card? It is perfect for so many different uses.
I wanted to point out also that for those of you trying to watch your money, you can easily add only the money you want to spend in a given amount of time or for a certain purpose to the card – this way you’ll only have enough money for those purposes, it’s a great way to keep yourself on track as far as monitoring your spending goes.
I received monetary compensation from American Express in the form of an American Express prepaid card to use before and during the BlogHer conference and then blog about my experiences. This compensation has not influenced my views and my opinions are 100% my own.
