How do I buy a prepaid card at a retailer?
First, pick the card you want. Think about how you will use the card and look at the fees that you will pay for those uses. You may want to go online to see if there are fees that aren’t disclosed on the card packaging. When you buy the card, you pay the initial amount that you want to load onto the card – the “initial load” – plus the cost of the card. Sometimes you will have to put at least a certain amount of money on a card to get it.
