Register Pre-Paid Credit Cards

If you have been reading my blog for a while now then you know that I highly recommend pre-paid credit cards for Adult with ADHD who shop online. They are great alternative to regular credit cards or bank debit cards. They can be purchased at banks and various types of stores.

There is one thing that I didn't realize about my own pre-paid visa card though. It has to be registered to make online purchases. When my pre-paid visa card that I got for Christmas would not work online I just assumed it was an error on my part. I thought maybe I typed the wrong numbers in an tried entering them a few different times.

I finally went to the website address on the back of my card and learned that I had to register it first. It probably also said that somewhere on the packaging that it came in which I didn't bother to read.

    A pre-paid credit card is an outstanding ides. Money management is a common problem for adults with ADHD. I am the poster representative of money mismanagement.

    I just wonder why not expand on the notion and recommend pre-paid cards for the millions of people who spent beyond their means before the financial meltdown. I may have burned a few credit cards in my time, but I certainly never borrowed for house that I could not afford.
