I love my Garfield Card - Review

Disclosure: I received a $25 prepaid Visa card from for review purposes.  All opinions stated are honest and my own!

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review  It is a company that offers pre-paid debit cards that can customized just for you!  They offer so many designs, I literally spent an hour trying to decide which image I wanted to use on my customized card.  You can choose from these awesome categories such as: Animals, Art & Culture, Causes, Cityscape's, Comics, Fashion, Flags, Flowers, Food & Drink, Gothic, Hipster, Nature, School, Seasonal, Sports, Symbols, Tattoos & TV.

What I love about is that all loaded funds are 100% FDIC insured!   Loading money to the card  is easy and convenient too.  You can load it with cash at Western Union and also through direct deposit from your employer or federal benefits!  You can also transfer funds from card to card. It may be used at ATMs and shops near home and around the world.  It is safer than cash!

It's free for 30 days. After 30 days, it's only $5.95 a month which will be waived if you direct deposit over $800 in the previous 30 days.  Bank fees seem to be increasing everywhere so the fee is reasonable.

Since it is a debit card, there are no credit checks, and you get instant approval. There are No overdraft fees and card to card transfers are free.  There is a free app so you can check deposits from your smartphone. 

It was very easy to sign up and it took only a minute or two.  Choosing the card was a lot of fun, because there are so many wonderful images.  Don't say I didn't warn you if you find yourself browsing for a while!

All things considered, I love my new Garfield card and will continue to use it.  The fee is affordable and with the holiday season rapidly approaching, it is safer to carry than CA$H!  What do you think?  Check it out for yourself at  Or you can follow them through these social networks:
