How Getting A Pre-Paid Card Will Make Your Holiday Shopping Easier

I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #GreenDotCards at Walgreens campaign, sponsored by Green Dot Corporation. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

Trying to manage your finances during the holidays can be a challenge. Let’s be honest, all we really want to do is buy fancy decorations and presents for ourselves (and maybe a few for family and friends). For me, it’s even more challenging when you throw in our recent wedding expense. We’re reaching for the “We should tap out” button in the finance department. Between shopping, traveling during the holidays and paying bills it’s no wonder we are all stressed out this time of the year. But if you’re like me and you want a convenient and easy way to manage your spending this holiday, there are Green Dot Prepaid Cards.

Green Dot just launched their new Load & Go™ Prepaid Visa® Card and it’s perfect for my needs!

Green Dot cards are perfect for young adults 18 years and older, like my son, who doesn’t have a checking account yet but still wants the freedom of spending without having to carry cash around.

Now even though I have a checking account, I bought Green Dot’s new Load & Go Prepaid Visa Card at Walgreens for just $3.95 and loaded it with $200. This non-reloadable card is what I’m using strictly for Christmas gifts. It’s a great way to keep my finances segmented and costs just $1.50 per transaction. My Green Dot Load & Go Prepaid Visa Card helps me stay on task when the $200 is gone, that’s it for my Christmas spending. Thinking a Load & Go card might be right for you? Learn more at
