Post Office Travel electron Card

Just got the Moneysavings email and noticed that the above card is recommended as the Cheapest Pre Pay card. I have to disagree completely as they charge 3% commission to top up a Sterling Card which is extortionate. I am very dissappointed in Martin for not mentioning this as this is exactly what us savvy people try to avoid (being ripped off).
I would be interested in hearing other people's views.

    He didn't say it was the cheapest pre-paid card, he said the cheapest pre-paid electron card. He quotes the fairfx as cheapest for Ryanair, which is pre-paid mastercard.
