RE: Prepaid Gift Cards/Certificates

jetboater454 and way2roll Good morning, The girl at my bank that I talked with yesterday stated to go with Free and Easy checking ($0 balance required) for each grandchild and getting a debit card. This requires my grandkids to meet me at the bank to open their joint accounts; extremely hard to coordinate with their busy schedule. Each of them lives a couple of a hundred miles from each other and from my bank. My bank closed their office in my town about ten years and their closest branch is over 100 miles away; that's the reality of being based in a remote area. I don't have anything better to do today so let's go for a ride thru the countryside. I am going to see if I can open two Free and Easy's in my name and get a debit card for each account. I don't know about all the legalities of this but you can guess who will be the holders of those debit cards. Since the accounts will be in my name, I will be able to transfer money from my main account into those Free and Easy accounts. My goal for this project is to allow my grandchildren to have Freedom of Choice and to use a Card, which in my mind, is a reminder that grandpa gave them a present. The Amazon Gift Card is a nice idea but again limits them to an on-line purchase. A bank debit card gives them the freedom of choice and can still be used for internet purchases. Lets see what others have to say and to what I find out at the bank today. Thank you, LeRoy

Amazon. Online, simple, millions of things they can use it for. Thanks, I will keep that in mind.

Prepaid Gift Cards/Certificates

Hello Everyone, I am a grandfather to two college graduates. In the past, I would give each of them a $25 Subway Gift Certificate for occasions such as: Back to school in fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Valentine day, etc. Since they are graduates (one is teaching high school this fall and the other is starting his Masters Program), I would like to switch to a more appropriate gift for these minor events. My idea is first to make the gift open ended (not tied to a specific store: Subway, Target, etc) and secondly something that I can reload from my computer. Prepaid Visa Cards that are available a Walmart, Family Dollar, etc but all have a service charge and cannot be reloaded. They must be repurchased for each event. Buying a Prepaid Card directly at the store of interest (Kohls, Walmart, Shell Oil) eliminates the service charge BUT they force my grandkids where to use the gift which is exactly what I don't want. My bank used to issue Visa Debit Cards that could be reloaded from a bank account but they stopped that practice. I was wondering if our forum members had any suggestions for me. Thank you, LeRoy

RE: Route Planning Question

I use Street Atlas 13 and it works great. Mine is set up to avoid told roads. LeRoy
