Check with your bank about prepaid visa cards.

I got a prepaid visa card for my teen-aged son via our bank and "attached" it to my checking account. By transferring money from my checking to the prepaid visa card we don't have to pay transfer fees (or load fees). It's convenient too as I can keep track of my son's purchases and card balance.

Hiya thanks for your response. I am the UK citizen so for one I don't have a US bank account yet. Are you saying I have to have a bank account to buy a prepaid visa card? I thought you could just go in Wal-Mart and buy one without an account for a small charge? Sorry not sure how these things work. Cheers.

WalMart sells prepaid visa "gift" cards... Not sure if they sell or offer a prepaid (collateralized) visa "credit" card.


YMMV

Sorry! Didn't mean to confuse you. Since you don't have a US bank account yet, you can get prepaid visa cards from almost any store. Wal-mart will definitely have them. And I see that Big Agnes has provided a link for Walgreens.
