Re: Discover Debit Card for Teens

Yep, CCC's LOVE to hold your money for you and then get to charge the merchant a fee when you spend it Smiley Happy

 

Concord, was this an FYI, endorsement or what is your opinion on the product?  Do you use it?

Re: Discover Debit Card for Teens

This has been a popular product for arbitrage for a while now. You can fund the card with a credit card and it posts as a purchase rather than a cash advance. You can then withdraw the money at an ATM. If you use a card with a promo 0% for purchases and a good reward program you can make some decent money.
