Prepaid Mastercard: Myths vs Reality

Rounding it up

  • There are many misconceptions about prepaid credit cards, like the idea that they’re the same thing as debit. This is untrue; prepaid cards come with extra perks (cash back, anyone?) that debit cards can’t offer.

  • Contrary to some beliefs, prepaid cards are widely accepted! You can even link them with your smartphone for Apple, Google, and Samsung Pay.

  • We can’t speak for other prepaid credit cards, but the KOHO prepaid Mastercard takes it up a notch with zero fees and robust protection against theft.

  • Plus, the KOHO card won’t let you overdraft on your account and won’t charge non-sufficient funds fees, making it a great money management tool.
