Read the fine print. Some will start to take money off the card after so many months

check with your bank, my debit card has visa right on it. if i use the card as a credit card the money is taken right out of my checking account and i don't get charged a fee for that service.

I think he wants to get one becuase he does not have a bank account I may be wrong

I can use my atm/debit card anywhere and never get charged a fee. I can use it on the internet to purchase something or use it at the walmart and run it as credit so i dont have to use the pin number

you may be right stl. but even if you open an account in a bank that don't charge a minimum fee if your account drops below a certain level you can always add the money to it when you want to use it and certain banks won't cash checks when you don't have an account with them.

Back in the day you could cash a check anywhere. Like you said though most wont anymore unless you have a account with them. Some pawn shops wont even cash checks here anymore.

Pawn shops around here are good to visit toward the first of the month and last of the month. Generally when bills are due, and people pawn their stuff so they can pay bills
