There are lots of different prepaid credit cards out there. Some are better for teenagers than others. Prepaid credit cards are a great way to teach teenagers how to spend money wisely and it is an effective way for them to have access to a controlled amount of cash at their parents' discretion. The following article will tell you how to get the best credit card deals and compare prepaid credit cards for teenagers.

Instructions

  • 1. Look at the practical things. The best credit card deals will have no APR and no annual fees. Some companies, for various reasons, will offer cards with certain benefits, but attach fees to them. Your teenager will probably not be making enough use of the card to benefit from those offers, so there is no reason to bother with it.

  • 2. Check for fees. The best credit card deals will have little or no fees. You can probably count on some overdraft fees from your teenagers, so that is one of the most important to consider.

  • 3. Look to see how many places you can refill the card. Some allow you to deposit into them online. This is probably the easiest, but if your teenager has a job and will be depositing into it themselves, you probably want to let them do this at a local establishment. Watch for fees when you compare in this area as well.

  • 4. When you begin to compare prepaid credit cards for teenagers you will probably notice that there isn't a credit check or income verification of any sort. That is because you are required to put money on it before it works, so they don't care what your credit is like. The best credit card deals won't have these, but if they do require these, ask why.

  • 5. Control is of utmost important. You have to get a prepaid credit card for your teenagers that has control. The best credit card deals will allow you to shut the card off after a certain amount is spent in a day or if the card hits zero. This is important to avoid fees, although you may incur fees to get the control.
