Travelling to Thailand. Over the counter Prepaid Card

I am going thailand this weekend and I am wondering if I can find something other than the Post office pre paid card (I've read the reviews...its generally considered terrible). I should say I did register with revolut card but that won't arrive till monday (I am leaving on sunday).

Alternatively, if no one has no suggestions, and I am forced, I would use my acqua card (which I using to rebuild my credit and I currently has a 0 balance). I would front load it with a cash amount so the its in credit + amount and make withdrawals when necessary ( I won't putting all my holiday money on it just a small amount ) additionally, I am taking a small amount of local currency and a large amount sterling (which I will change when I arrive in BKK) .

All useful suggestions received with thanks. :T:T:T

    I think you have left any other option too late.
