Facecard - Great replacement for Debit Cards!

I'm a member of BzzAgent and I just found out about a really cool thing called Facecard.

Tired of a six dollar sandwich turning into a 40 dollar meal because of debit card overdraft fees? Tired of writing checks and sending your child allowance through the mail? Facecard Prepaid MasterCard® is the newest, cheapest, way for your young adult to avoid these overdraft situations and receive funds easily. Facecard can be used wherever Debit MasterCard is accepted.

Start enjoying all the benefits of facecard by signing up now, simply click on "Get a Facecard". During the enrollment process you will be asked for a referral code, make sure to use BZZFACE and we will take care of your activation and monthly fees for life.

You can set up recurring gifts, so your loved one will receive their allowance easily and timely. In addition to providing an allowance, you can provide cash gifts through facecard. Rather than buying a gift card for a specific store, why not allow your young adult the choice by sending cash to their facecard. With facecard's unique gifting option, you no longer have to think what to get your child or relative for their birthday. Instead, you can put money directly onto your loved one's facecard. Giving a gift is as simple as typing an email address. The facecard member gets a text or an email letting them know they have a gift waiting (depending on their own personal preference).

You can also count on facecard to be there in an emergency situation. If your loved one is stranded somewhere without cash you simply go to the website to the "Give Money" page and your loved one will have the ability to use the funds within 30 minutes. Now that is peace of mind.

Another reason you should make sure your child has a facecard in his/her wallet is the overdraft problems young adults face today. You can't read the news without hearing about banks raising their overdraft fees to preposterous levels. Facecard is a refreshing change from the fees of the banks. Overdraft fees are virtually eliminated because you can't overspend with a facecard. Tell us the best way to contact you, and we will keep you posted about your balance.

Yes — facecard is easy to use and gives you peace of mind, but we don't stop there. Check us out at to learn more.

MasterCard is a registered trademark of MasterCard International Incorporated.

The facecard Prepaid MasterCard is issued by MetaBank pursuant to license by MasterCard International Incorporated.

I signed up myself and my husband to try it out. My husband is constantly causing over draft fees because he either forgets to get to the bank in time or he forgets to tell me he used the bank card. This will prevent all of that!

I wanted to sign up Aly, but you have to be 13 or older. I think this will be a great option for allowance, budgeting and learning how to use debit/credit for a teenager.

Many years ago there was a Visa card like this (Visa Bucks) that I signed up my daughter for, it was wonderful. She learned alot about money management and I could set it up to automatically withdraw form my bank account and deposit on her "card" every week for allowance.
But be careful, it suddenly just STOPPED! So try not to have to much on there just in case.

Thanks for the info Adrienne! I think I had something like that stop on me, Fatwallet or something. I can't remember if it was a reward site or if it was a debit card site, but they went out of business. I do believe we got notice though luckily.
