Over the years, our payment options have been limited to debit, credit, cash, and mobile payments. There’s nothing wrong with these choices, but they can be limiting. Debit cards give you control since you’ll only spend what you have, but there are no rewards and your bank may charge you monthly fees to have an account. Credit cards offer fantastic rewards, but they often come with high annual fees and you could run into trouble if you don’t pay off your full balance each month.
More recently, a third option has emerged: prepaid cards. Prepaid cards are nothing new, but new players such as Stack and Koho have upped the game by providing a no-fee service that gives you rewards, helps you save, and gives you a cash referral bonus.

Fees: None
Foreign transaction fees: No (ATM provider may charge a fee)

Referral bonus: $5 for the first 5 referrals, $10 for the next 5, and $15 for every referral after that, uncapped…
