|I LOVE Turtles!|
I love doing reviews like this one. Items I don't think I really need until I try it. So let me tell you about my experience with Card.com.
Like most people today, I already had a Debit or Bank card. It's fairly convenient. It is a Visa also and links to my checking account. However, it's ugly. Plain blue (I like blue, but its not even a pretty blue). The first thing that attracted me to Card.com was their promise of thousands of unique Card designs. Well I have been collecting turtle everything since I was around ten years old. I decided if I could find a cool Turtle Card, then i would be impressed. As you can see, I was impressed!
|Are you a Walking Dead Fanatic like me? I was tempted to get this one too because How Cool is this??|

After I chose which design I wanted, I created my account and filled in all of my info. Card.com doesn't run your credit and the whole process was quick and simple. My card came in the mail a lot sooner than I expected too. The instructions to activate it were also super easy (basically three steps). You can activate them online or by calling a toll free number. I went online. You choose your pin as soon as you activate the card.
Since I was doing the review, they already had $25 loaded on my card! You can use these cards anywhere Visa is accepted. I tried mine with a few small purchases. One online and the others at a couple of different stores. It worked just like my bank issued debit card.
The best part of my Card? I can transfer my paypal balance to it. This is a major pro for me. I do a lot of transactions online, and get paid mostly through paypal. I will definitely be keeping this card to use for MNAB. Its a great way to separate my checking account from my blog stuff. I have already linked my card to my paypal and transferred money by following the instructions from their website. There are a few other ways to load your card too, including having your paycheck direct deposited. After the first month there is a monthly fee of $5.95. You can actually avoid this fee by direct depositing over $800 in the previous 30 days (paycheck?) Find out more about that HERE.

I have one more thing I want to brag on Card.com about. I really love the up to date online account info. I can check my balance and past transactions anytime.
A few of their cool designs, you really have to see them all for yourself. They even have Popeye, Autism Awareness, Breast Cancer Research, and Where's Waldo! Go HERE to see them all! I really had fun browsing through them!
