    So the $100 Virtual Prepaid Mastercard is 880 points cheaper than the $100 Paypal card. I've never even looked at it before cause I always got Paypal or Walmart (which is 800 points more expensive than the Mastercard). Anyone ever use the Mastercard? It states. "Card valid for up to 6 months; funds do not expire and may be available after the expiration date, fees may apply. Terms and conditions apply." How can the funds not expire if the card is only valid for 6 months? Not sure what that means. And what kind of fees are there?

    I find it pretty darn offensive that when surveys ask my age, the block to enter it is about 8 or 9 inches wide..........

    but the block for my 5 digit zip code is only 2 inches wide!!

    I was wondering that too. It makes no sense.

    The only fees I know of with cards like that is an 'inactive fee'. They charge you if you don't use it for a month, or some other amount of time.

    I used to get them but they were too much of a pain in the butt to use online.

    I just prefer to have cash.

    There are still people on the mp fb page that can't read the point perk schedule. They have put it for every stupid time zone and these folks are still getting confused. How do these people survive in life? LOL

    So if you use it all within that time, they won't start charging inactive fees if there isn't anything on the card will they? It's just that that's a big difference in points. If you redeemed for paypal three times, losing that extra 880 points each time, that's over $17 worth of points you lost. Not a lot, but still doesn't seem right.

    No, there'd be nothing left for them to deduct, and they don't have access to your bank account.

    It says terms and conditions apply, but doesn't tell you what they are or where to look.

    I couldn't sleep, so got up just as the new MP day was starting and got 234 points from the TRUEX videos this morning. Managed to complete a couple of surveys, and made my second daily goal. One of them that credited was a JD Power on auto insurance. Always shocked when those credit. LOL I was totally prepared to have to send in a help ticket.

    I get them and just buy an amazon gc with it.

    I wonder if we could use it to buy the giftcards on mygiftcardsplus? Sometimes, they have Jiffy Lube where they give points equal to 20%.
