Pre-Paid Debit Cards: A Smart Option for Students 
If you're a parent of a teenager or college student who needs to have access to cash, handing a credit card over to them can be a bit risky. To solve this problem, parents can help their children obtain a pre-paid debit card. 
 
One advantage of a pre-paid debit card is that it's more secure than a regular debit card because if there is a breach of security with a regular card, the criminal would have direct access to their account.  Another advantage is that it prevents the students from over spending because when the cash is out, it's out, and they won't be able to make any more purchases.

To learn more about getting a pre-paid debit card, call us at (210) 223-6561.
