Another New Prepaid Card Attempts to Be an Alternative to Bank Accounts

Another New Prepaid Card Attempts to Be an Alternative to Bank Accounts

July 27, 2012         Written By Natalie Rutledge

PNC Bank is launching a reloadable SmartAccess Prepaid Visa card. The card is available in the 2,900 PNC branches but a traditional bank account is not needed for this card. Since the card is not linked to a bank account, there are no overdraft fees.

Cardholders can load their paycheck and other benefits with direct deposit. The card can pay bills, as well as online and point-of-sale transactions. If you want cash back with your purchase, press “debit” and use your PIN.
