I want this. I want that. It’s what I have been hearing lately from my son since the holidays are around the corner. Time to create those Santa wish lists & start shopping. I maintain a budget for each member of our family because honestly I can go overboard. We like to make our purchases with cash so we can keep within our budgets and not run up high credit card bills. However one way I like to shop is by using One Vanilla.
OneVanilla is a prepaid debit card that lets consumers add any amount between $20-$500 onto the card. It then can be used anywhere Visa is accepted. They are perfect to give as gifts to any one you know!
This is also an alternative to teach kids on how to manage their money during the holidays. My son has received gift cards in the past and I appreciate it so much more. He can use the debit card to make purchases on what he wants. It’s hassle free shopping at the stores. He spends only what it pre-loaded on the card. This way he learns how to spend within a budget. It is also a great way tool to teach him about responsible spending and the pitfalls of credit cards.
Additional features of the OneVanilla pre-paid Visa Debit Card:
- No personal information is required so my child’s private information is protected
- It is ready to use immediately
- No credit check is required
- There are no fees after purchase
- It is safer than cash
One Vanilla prepaid debit cards can be purchased at several retailers such as CVS, Walgreens and Office Depot. So when you’re out holiday shopping this season think about giving the gift of conscious spending!
