I’ve written about the Wells Fargo prepaid debit card before.  However, it turns out that you will have to use ONLY a Wells Fargo credit card (or debit card)to fund prepaid card after May 1, 2013.  Thanks to folks in the comments and those who emailed for alerting me to the change.

This makes it much less useful because Wells Fargo doesn’t have any attractive mileage earning cards.  Oh well, it was good while it lasted!

PS:  I’m on vacation and won’t be able to get to comments and email soon.

@Tom,

“@Jane, @Jason, not all of us are independently wealthy.”

I highly doubt “Jane” is wealthy. And “Jason” seemed to be mocking Jane.

Anyways, there are other methods to manufacture points/spending. Don’t worry.

Looks like Wells Fargo is clamping down quite heavily – My Chase United mileage plus CC called in to verify & check if the funding of $2500 came in as a cash advance from wells fargo – thankfully so. Did not happen to me in the past. will go the shredder earlier than May 1 now.

@Jane, @Jason, not all of us are independently wealthy. As long as these incentives are offered, you bet I will be the first in line (and a good customer too).

BTW, my next trip (thanks to my blogger friends) to Aruba in July (for my family of 5) I’ll be thinking o f both of U. So nice of you to “subsidize” my family vacation. We appreciate it at least.
