Starbucks PRE-PAID Debit Visa by Chase.

Im not sure if this has been posted yet, but Ive been bombarded with emails regarding the Visa and Pre-paid Visa lately.  So, here's another option for folks.

They are really trying to make “fetch” happen. 😂

Re: Starbucks PRE-PAID Debit Visa by Chase.

For those who ar “un-banked” or “non-banked”, this should be a good option. Many other prepaid debit cards have some sort of fee structure.

1 Star for every $10 spent is a small reward, but it is something in s class of cards that probably get no rewards on average.
High Bal Jan 2009 $116k on $146k limits 80% Util.
Oct 2014 $46k on $127k 36% util EQ 722 TU 727 EX 727
April 2018 $18k on $344k 5% util EQ 806 TU 810 EX 812
Jan 2019 $7.6k on $360k EQ 832 TU 839 EX 831
Only one app would be interesting now, Platinum 100k, but Gold + Delta Reserve + SPG Luxury + Hilton Aspire covers a lot of ground. Useful cards: Hyatt and Diners and Altitude Reserve. Ch United maybe, on a lark, but not many other apps are necessary. Chase Trifecta is useful, but I'm not sure how long.

The prepaid is also interesting for those that use starbucks "some" but not "lots", as it automatically gives you gold level rewards.  You could open it and leave it with a minimum balance (maybe $1 or less) and do your starbucks charging on your preferred card.

@meanmchine

I would say no.

My fiancé was recently blacklisted from the banking side of chase due to adding me as a joint account holder on her checking account. The checking account was closed.

She opened a Starbucks prepaid visa 2 weeks later just to keep Starbucks gold status for free. It was closed 2 days later

Oh wow!... So, its probably safe to say if you're on what @Meanmchine says "no-no list" (lol), then you probably cant get it!

Re: Starbucks PRE-PAID Debit Visa by Chase.

Yeah.

I was blacklisted due to a check I cashed for an ex girlfriend that turned out to be fraudulent. I paid chase back the $100 bucks and it’s been 10 years but I’m still blacklisted from the banking side.

Not sure about the credit card side.
