How to Earn FREE Money as a Prepaid Credit Card Marketer

ioreviewFor the last couple of years there has been a number of financial institutions offering people the opportunity to earn money by referring others to use their prepaid credit cards. This is actually a really great way to earn extra money without any investment and you CAN actually earn some pretty good money with it with NO RISK!

One of the top providers of these prepaid credit cards is Netspend.

In this post, I’ll give you a quick peek of the company and what they have to offer you as a very simple, risk-free, income opportunity. I also provide a video that explains how it all works. I also answer some common questions that folks may have about Netspend. Finally at the end of this article, I share some tips on how to market Netspend so that you can start making free money with this great little opportunity.

I do need to tell you that I looked into Netspend when I first heard about it months ago and decided to give it a try to see if it was worth my while. I’m pleased to say that I’m VERY PLEASED with my experience and found out it is DEFINITELY a perfectly legitimate and reliable way to make money. It’s also a great little convenient tool to use in your regular spending habits. I’ve made money referring Netspend to others, and continue to do so. The only downside to this opportunity is that it’s ONLY AVAILABLE in the U.S. No other country can participate in this particular prepaid credit card program.

Ok, so let’s jump into the details…

What is Netspend?

NetSpend Corporation is a provider of reloadable prepaid debit cards. They are backed by a U.S. Bank like most providers of prepaid credit cards. They have an “A” Rating from the BBB (Better Business Bureau). NetSpend cards are available free online and are also in over 30,000 nationwide locations including grocery stores, check cashers and convenience stores. They have been in business since 1999 and have enabled more than 7 million consumers to make purchases, pay bills and manage their money without the need for a checking account or credit history.


Netspend offers you a card like any other prepaid debit credit card that you could find at stores such as grocery store gift card racks and Walmart. Anyone can get one, it’s free, it has nothing to do with your credit or credit score. It works just like a gift card would, but because NetSpend’s prepaid debit cards are Mastercards and Visas, you can use them to pay bills and make purchases. So the thing that makes THIS card special and unique from other prepaid debit cards, is that NetSpend offers you a great income opportunity!
