What's Good ? The JustCash Prepaid Card Review
The Just Cash prepaid card from the cheque cashing company N&N runs on the Maestro network, and can be used at over 7 million locations worldwide. It offers excellent flexibility when it comes to reloading your card – including top ups over the counter at the Post Office costing just £0.75. You can also top up online using a credit or debit card, using cash at one of 15,000 PayPoint locations around the UK, or at any N&N agent. There is no transaction fee with the Just Cash card, making it an ideal choice if you plan to use your card for frequent retail or internet purchase.
What's not so good ?
The 3% foreign transaction fee makes it an expensive choice for use abroad, and the reload fee for top ups made online or at PayPoint locations is up to 3% depending on amount. There is also a £3.95 monthly fee with this card.
