k so a couple of questions

i want to get a prepaid mastercard card (or visa)

i have visited my bank, but the only institution that seems to offer this is inta cheques, the activation fee is 20 CAD and each recharge 2$, recharging from 20$ to 5000.

1) is this a good offer?
2) anyone knows if i can get Canadian prepaid cc s somewhere elso cheaper
3) will the cc card work on the trials and offers on the sites? i ma buying it mainly for this, as i am afraid to get too charged, as i hear more and more cases...

karma for a complete and clear answer! 8)

Be careful to check with the issuer. Some prepaid cards have problems working online because for security purposes, the sites check billing address, and prepaid cards do not always show your home address. Check to make sure it will to avoid ending up with a card that many online sites won't take.
