Prepaid cards

Where can I use my prepaid card?

Most prepaid cards with a network logo (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover) can be used anywhere that brand is accepted: grocery stores, gas stations, hotels, online shopping, etc. However, some prepaid cards with a network logo can only be used at certain locations or for certain purchases. If your card does not have a network logo on it, you can only use it at certain locations – for example, a specific store or group of stores for a gift card, or your public transportation system for a transit card.
