Freebie time is right around the corner, and I say that because every year January seems to be a crazy month really good freebies. There are times that freebies ask for a credit card even if there is no charge but they still want a credit card number. An easy way to not give out your credit card information is to use a prepaid credit card. Right now you can sign up for a Serve Prepaid card from American Express for FREE that is great for using with freebies that ask for your credit card information.
I use a prepaid credit card to snag these freebies and I love it because I don’t have to give out my credit card information 🙂
There are NO credit checks on this one — in fact you don’t even need to enter your full social!
This works very similar to PayPal and since it’s through American Express you have all the benefits of any other Amex card too.
Plus you get a lot of the perks of Amex by signing up as a Serve Member:
- Purchase Protection
- Roadside Assistance (6 roadside basic emergencies like towing, jump starting, delivering up to 2 gallons of gas)
- Entertainment Access
