Control Prepaid MasterCard®

Reviews

The Control Prepaid MasterCard® is a prepaid card that comes with two different plans, the Basic Fee Plan and the Discount Fee Plan. The latter plan applies after $500 is deposited into the users account during one calendar month. This brings the monthly fees down from $7.95 per month to $5.00 per month.

This is not actually a credit card!

Keep in mind prepaid cards generally do not help you build credit since they don’t report to the credit bureaus. If you have bad credit and would like to build credit, a secured card may be a better option.

Hell

I didn't know it was a limit on how much you can have deposited into your checking out. Representatives and the Supervisor lied to me wen they told me they had received proof from where my check was coming from and the amount. I went through HELL all day for nothing. I trusted them with my check and now I'm suppose to trust them on sending it back. A bunch of bull! This card is not worth it if you can't trust them with a deposit from a Government agency!

The card is great but customer service is a bummer. They took my through he'll and and for 7 days just to transfer money from my control card, to my netspend card. Telling me that they wanted to verify who I was, but was willing to mail a card to the address I gave them without verification.
