  1. Thanks for the information about putting your refund on a Visa card. I’ve always just waited for the refund to come into my checking account. It usually doesn’t take that long. I don’t think I’ll get anything back this year so I probably won’t have to worry about it. 🙂

  2. Putting the refund on a Visa card is a great idea. That makes it very convenient for so many people. I had no idea that was a possibility.

  3. I think for people who do not have direct deposit as an option for their taxes, this is a very good alternative to a paper check. Good information.

  4. I hadn’t thought about being able to put our tax refund on a prepaid Visa. Quick and safe. Good idea for being able to use the money right away for those “When I get my tax refund, I’m going to buy…….” purchases.

  5. I thought about the prepaid visa card but since I e-filed, I decided to go the direct deposit method. No hassle for me and no worries.

  6. great idea for people who don’t have a credit card….good to know to let friends and family know 🙂

  7. I learned that you will get the opportunity to win groceries for a year if you load your tax refund onto a pre paid visa!
