Western Union Netspend Prepaid Mastercard Review

The Western Union Netspend Prepaid 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.

Western Union Netspend Prepaid 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.
