H&R Block Prepaid Emerald Mastercard Review

The H&R Block Prepaid Emerald Mastercard is designed for consumers who want the convenience of paying with plastic but don’t want (or don’t qualify) for a regular credit card. Prepaid cards only allow you to spend money already in your account. So you can avoid interest payments, bounced checks, or overdraft fees.

H&R Block Prepaid Emerald Mastercard does not require a credit check, so approval is guaranteed. However, it will not help you build credit and some online merchants don't accept prepaid cards.
