The Movo Virtual Prepaid Visa Card took the runner-up spot on our list of the best prepaid cards, and allows card holders to instantly send and spend money right from their phone, even without a bank account. While it does not charge a monthly service fee, you will get dinged for making bill payments or funding the card with debit card transfers.

Those who used and reviewed this prepaid card appreciated that it could easily be reloaded at popular merchants such as Safeway and Walgreens, although the fee was a bit of a turnoff. People like the convenience of online bill payments, but at 75-cents each, the costs can quickly add up if you’re not careful.

With no activation or monthly fees, free access to 6,000 ATMs in the Visa Plus Alliance network, and the ability to create secondary cards quickly and easily, this is an excellent option for spenders looking for a prepaid card. It has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on NerdWallet.com, which we think goes a long way in convincing people to make the application.

Movo Virtual Prepaid Visa Card Key Features: 

  • Ability to send money to friends and family via email or cell phone
  • FDIC insured
  • No credit check required, and no impact to your credit rating
