The O2 Load & Go card which is aimed at children aged 13 and over, will help educate and ensure that financial control is learned from a young age and young people won't have to worry about carrying and losing cash.
(PRWEB) August 2, 2009
Joanne Garcia, Head of Credit Cards at Confused.com comments on the launch of O2's fee free pre-paid cards.
"This is a breath of fresh air at a time when fees are creeping back up on many financial products. O2 and Nat West are delivering a fantastic innovation with their Cash Manager and Load & Go pre-paid cards, and we hope this will encourage more competition.
"We've been cautious fans of pre-paid cards for sometime because the benefits have been limited to a small number of people, due to the charges applied. We don't believe that people should be charged for trying to manage their money responsibly.
"The O2 Load & Go card which is aimed at children aged 13 and over, will help educate and ensure that financial control is learned from a young age and young people won't have to worry about carrying and losing cash."
