The AccountNow.net website offers detailed commonly asked questions and thorough answers to help website visitors decide if a prepaid credit card is right for their needs. AccountNow offers two different cards – the “Classic Card” and a “Gold Card.” Each card has slightly different benefits and fees.
For folks who expect to use their prepaid credit cards only occasionally, AccountNow.net recommends the “Classic Card” as the best value. It features no monthly fee, a one-time initial fee of just $4.95, a $2.50 ATM withdrawal fee and a $1 transaction fee. For regular users, AccountNow suggests the “Gold Card” which has a $9.95 monthly fee, (which is waived for customers who load at least $2,500 onto their card in any given month), and a $2.50 ATM withdrawal fee. The Gold Card does now have a transaction fee.
