Christmas Shopping with an Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card and Twitter Party #AngryBirdsVisa #AngryBirdsPrepaid

| December 2, 2013 | 1 Comment

Last week on Thursday, I had the pleasure of going Christmas shopping to Place d’Orléans with my daughter and paying our purchases with an Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card by Paymobile.  My daughter was delighted to have her own Visa® Prepaid Card to make her purchases!  She bought a beautiful dress to wear on Christmas Eve at grandma’s house at Eclipse, a light blue sweater to keep her warm all winter, and a pair of jeans at American Eagle, as well as a dress shirts for her dad from Tip Top to give him at Christmas.  I could tell that she was enjoying the freedom of purchasing the items herself.

Angry Birds Prepaid Visa Card

I have to admit that I would never consider getting her a prepaid credit card before, but having used one really opened my eyes on how handy the card is for my teenage kids. I am always worried when my daughter takes the car for a drive, not because she is a bad driver, but what if the car does not start, she needs to fill up the tank with gas, or she ends up in a car accident? Having the reassurance that she has a preloaded Angry Birds™ Visa® Prepaid Card to cover the expenses or a taxi really makes me at ease.

It was also a pain when I didn’t have cash on me and my kids wanted to go shopping or to the movies with their friends. Now I can just go online to add some money on the card and they are ready to use it.  The prepaid card will also come in handy when my daughter is at University and would like to purchase books and supplies for her classes, hot chocolate at Second Cup™, or a lunch at the cafeteria. It’s safer than cash because if one of my kid’s loses their money, which has happened in the past, they can’t have it back, but their money on the card can be recovered.  It’s also a great tool to teach my kids how to manage their money, so they never spend more then the allowance money that was put on the card.

    Interesting idea. The physical card arrangement might last for another couple of years before most of this moves to NFC via cell phones. Since most kids have cell phones, they’ll probably prefer that to carrying around plastic cards.
