How To Load Your Tax Return Onto A Visa Prepaid Card


As we all know, it’s tax season!  While some us get the yuck of having to owe on our taxes, others of us get the joy of a REFUND!

Sadly some people do not make strong financial decisions and go a little crazy with spending their refund.  One way to prevent this is to load your tax refund onto a prepaid Visa card!  Did you know you can do that?  I didn’t until now!

Here are some other benefits of loading your 2012 tax refund onto a Visa Prepaid card:

  •  It’s faster with no check to cash and you’ll get your refund quicker than in the mail
  • It’s safer than cash and replaced if your card is damaged, lost, or stolen.
  •  It’s convenient to shop or pay bills online or over the phone.


One way that Visa would like to help promote this new program is by offering a giveaway!  Everyone loves giveaways right?
