    Pre paid cash card 13th Jun 19 at 5:05 PM
    I have a relative with financial worries who Id like to help by giving her a pre paid cash card that she can keep and I can top up via my internet banking. Anybody know about these cards?
    Where do I get one and how do I top up so that I can make sure she always has some money for food etc. Thanks

    Plenty of options - some in the link eskbanker gave above.

    I used FairFX for my old mum in her final days - set up one in my name, put 100 quid on it, then set up a Family and Friends card (an option FairFX give you to have another card on the account, not sure which others do it) in her name, and moved 50 onto it from the original 100.

    She then had a card, with her own name on, and some spending money on it.

    Monitored her use via the app/website - and topped it up as needed - instantly from teh balance on the original card, which I could then top up from her current account (via LPA).

    Worked for me/her.

    PS The one I used was their Everywhere Card - not the Euro or Dollar ones! Details at https://www.fairfx.com/everywhere-card
