Advantages of Prepaid Visa Debit Cards

Published by Scott Hershman

In addition to offering currency exchange in Villa Park and in other Chicago areas, we offer the Green Dot Visa prepaid debit card. We’re outlining some of the many reasons why leaving West Suburban Currency Exchange with a prepaid Visa card in your wallet is beneficial for you.

No Credit Score Checks

If you are like many people and have made some mistakes in the past, such as bouncing checks or failing to pay bills on time, it can be very difficult to be approved for a credit card account. A Visa prepaid card does not require any traditional credit score check as part of the approval process, meaning most people over the age of 18 are approved.

Shop Online

These days, we’re all relatively familiar with the convenience of online shopping. When you only shop with cash, you cannot utilize online shopping, which is where the prepaid Visa debit card comes in. You also won’t have to worry about overdraft fees because the app helps you manage your balance! Ask us about the app when you stop in for currency exchange in Villa Park.

Pay Bills

It is very inconvenient to get utility companies to pay bills in cash. Luckily, you can use most prepaid Visa debit cards to schedule automatic payments for utilities, car or mortgage payments, and more.

Direct Deposit

Rather than driving to the bank and depositing your paychecks, prepaid Visa debit cards include an account and routing number, allowing you to enroll in direct deposits from your employer. Direct deposits allow you to use your money immediately, and some employers even require paperless payroll systems.
