If you buy gift cards for the holidays, read on!
AOL Finance asked my opinion about teen cards several months ago.
After doing research, I hadn’t found a pre-paid teen card that was worth the fees… or any gift card. I know it’s convenient, but the cost is ridiculous.
Americans are expected to spend $100 billion by 2012 on gift cards. I must say I get irritated when I have to pay the $3.95- $9.95 to activate the holiday gift cards. It gets pricy!
ING DIRECT, has a great card called “Money” “That’s so Money! is their slogan. This card is awesome and can replace the activation fee cards you get at the market.
