CrewCard Prepaid Card Review
CrewCard is one of the most cost effective prepaid MasterCard's on offer in the UK this year, with a whole host of benefits over most other prepaid cards on offer.
Shopping with CrewCard
Unlike most other prepaid cards CrewCard doesn’t charge their customers for purchase transactions. This is great news for users wishing to shop in store or online.
Money Transfer by CrewCard
When you buy a CrewCard Prepaid card, you actually get a pack with TWO cards. One is for the primary prepaid card holder who remains in control of the account and uploading funds. The second prepaid card can be given to a relative and funds transferred from the primary prepaid card to the secondary prepaid card, which can be used to withdraw money, to pay for goods online, in shops and in the same way as the primary prepaid card.
The money is transferred instantaneously, and at 2.5% charge, it is cheaper than other traditional methods of transferring money and is very useful for workers wanting to send money back home to relatives, or for example to send funds to relatives traveling abroad who need emergency money.
SMS Banking and Account Control
Another exceptional feature of the CrewCard prepaid card is that the account can be controlled by mobile text message (SMS.) You can even buy your card by mobile phone online by going to the Crewcard.co.uk website!
With SMS banking, you can request balance details, load money, lock the card if you suspect it has been lost, and unlock it if you find it again.
Most importantly, you can instruct a money transfer to the secondary card by entering a simple text command – and funds will be almost instantaneously transferred to your relative.
So even if you do not have access to the internet, CrewCard Mobile SMS Control allows you to control, check and use your account wherever you are.
