Shoppers: Watch Out For Hidden Fees In Prepaid Cards

Gift Cards
Flickr User, Kerry Woo

As you head out to purchase those last minute gifts for the holidays, be aware of hidden fees in prepaid gift cards.

Jersey U.S. Senator Bob Menendez says those extra fees could end up costing you a lot more money.

“Consumers often miss out on the fine print until they open the card or the package, and that fine print may include up front fees for purchasing the card, a minimum deposit fee, a monthly fee.”

That’s why Menendez is reintroducing the “Prepaid Card Consumer Protection Act” next week.

“The legislation will put all the fees right up front so the consumers know exactly what their costs will be,  it will eliminate some of the most egregious fees that consumers shouldn’t have to pay, and finally, it will give the types of protections that currently exist for a credit or debit card so that if you lost a card or the company goes out of business you don’t lose all your money.”
