    best pay as you go credit card deal?

    hi all, im just learning about the 'pay as you go' credit cards, sounds like a great idea and im off to ireland in june so think i might go for one instead of carrying cash, though im baffled by all the varying fees ect, they charge for using an atm,loading and using your card and for joining, all vary and i would like to know if anyone has any views on which is the better deal?

    thank you

    Thats what i use.... £5 to get it, free if you get the virgin sims off net for free...

    No charge per transaction. You get charged 99p a month and 30p per £10 top up...not as bad as others

    thank you > where do i get it free? the sims?

    You could try asking about prepaid credit cards on the forum here ]http//ww…htm

    They're not linked to any company and won't spam you, I got some good advice from there when I had debt problems a couple of years ago. I definately remember prepaid cards being discussed there at the time.

    Sorry no idea about promo codes...how long can you wait? I have got a few virgin sims coming, and could probably send one to you if you want

    Also they only do them once every couple of months - the free sims that is...

    You can pay the £5 card fee by texting a number..and the virgin sims come with £5 on them, so basically its free to get the card
