RushCard Logo with VisaWe’ve just been notified that RushCard has dramatically reduced the fees on several of it’s prepaid card offers!

RushCard prepaid debit cards are some of the most well-known in the industry. They are completely re-loadable prepaid card accounts that allow users take advantage of many of the great Visa and RushCard benefits. They can be used anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted online, in person and over the phone.

Moreover, you can choose from three fee plans: Rush Unlimited Plan, Monthly Plan, Pay As You Go Plan.

Major Fee Reductions

Every RushCard had its activation fee reduced to zero dollars, and the majority of them also had a few other fees slightly reduced as well. However, there were some minor fee increases on a few of its cards. Here is a summary of the major fee reductions.

Classic Design

  • One-time activation fee reduced to from $3.00 to $0.
  • ATM withdrawal fee reduced from $2.95 to $2.50.

Baby Phat Design

  • One-time activation fee reduced to from $3.00 to $0.

KLS Design

  • One-time activation fee reduced to from $19.95 to $0.
  • Signature transaction fee reduced from $1.00 to $0.

Pink Diamond Design

  • One-time activation fee reduced to from $19.95 to $0.

Purple Diamond Design

  • One-time activation fee reduced to from $3.00 to $0.

Black Diamond Design

  • One-time activation fee reduced to from $3.00 to $0.
  • ATM withdrawal fee reduced from $2.95 to $2.50.

These were already some of the world’s most popular prepaid cards, but with the major reduction in activation fees they’re going to be even more attractive now. However, you will still have to pay a one-time card fee – confusing, I know – depending on the whichever card design you choose. Also, be sure to carefully review the fees before you apply for any of these cards. Just because some of the cards have very similar visual designs, that doesn’t necessarily mean they will always have the same fee structure.
