Bankfreedom.com would be a great site to get a prepaid credit card for online usage.Prepaid credit cards are great as anyone can qualify if they have the money to buy the credit on the card and they are accepted by alot of online retailers.Mcdonalds even accepts them as i have tried and i it worked like a normal credit card.I really like them an i feel that they are really useful if you have a bad credit history or banks and companies are denying you a full fledged credit card.

I was getting excited about this prepaid card opportunity until I saw there was a monthly fee. No way could I keep hundreds of dollars on it. How much is the monthly fee?

Sorry,but the ones I've used so far are available in the UK only,they're not international ones,AFAIK..They're very useful,though..I used one on my last trip to the US-It costs less to load it than to buy travel currency or travellers cheques,and costs less to withdraw cash than my other bank cards when out of the country..and if you lose it,the card and the balance on it can be replaced.. good luck finding a suitable one for your needs!

Sorry for not referring you to any international credit card. But I think paypal is much better than international credit if your using it to buy online...

hello there tash a prepaid credit card is pretty much the same as a debit card so i would suggest that you get the paypal debit card which has paypal security as well as being able to use it just like a prepaid credit card .. if you feel that it HAS to be a perpaid credit card i suggest getting a green dot prepaid credit card they are avalible from alot of retailers from say walmart to most every gas station

Using a limited prepaid credit card on line is a good safety measure. I cannot recommend a specific one though. I know Wal-mart sells them, but I always thought the fee was too high. If you have a checking account at a bank, you should be able to get a debit card. I currently use a visa debit for my checking account for online purchases. It has worked well, but I wonder if there is a security concern. Hope you can find a free prepaid credit card if that is what you prefer.

Hello tash, I searched online and found a great link where you can do some comparison shopping for pre-paid credit cards. Reason why you want to do comparison is that there are some fees associated with the cards and you would want to get the lowest possible. Also please read any fine prints as bankers are out to get their ways. http://www.usatoday.com/travel/deals/inside/2009-05-21-best-overseas-credit-card_N.htm Hope this helps.
