    Prepaid credit cards 15th Sep 17 at 2:34 PM
    Is there a credit card that will enable me to pay in say £10, and refuse any drawings in excess of that?

    DO NOT get the card memberme is recommending. It charges £5.95 a month or £0.99 per transaction and that is just the start of it. I have reported their posts for spam.

    There are prepaid cards that have no fees at all even for use abroad such a MONZO which would be suitable.

    A prepaid card is different to a credit card in that you put funds on to a prepaid card where as a credit card lends money.
