“Bieber-Endorsed Prepaid Card Aims to Teach Kids About Responsible Spending
Teen hearthrob latest celebrity to endorse prepaid debit card
This month, Justin Bieber begins marketing a prepaid card designed to promote responsible teen spending to his millions of fans. He’ll take to social media to spread his message about the SpendSmart MasterCard from a company called BillMyParents, Inc.
“There’s probably no single individual out there that can send this message, that can turn a brighter spotlight on this message, then Justin Bieber,” said Mike McCoy, chief executive officer of BillMyParents, Inc.
Bieber, who turned 19 Friday, began his career as a YouTube sensation. Now he has more than 51 million Facebook friends and 30 million Twitter followers, making him a perfect and powerful front man for any product. He’s joining the ranks of celebrities who have used their star power to promote plastic. [snip]
Mark said he is skeptical whether any prepaid card is the best way to teach teens about financial responsibility, namely, he said, because prepaid cards can be riddled with fees.
“If you’re depositing $50 and you’re paying a buck-50 every time you deposit $50 into an account. That’s horribly inefficient and not cost effective,” Mark said.
Prepaid cards may charge consumers to load money on the card, withdraw cash and check their balance. There are monthly fees as well. For the A-Rod-endorsed Dynasty prepaid Visa RushCard, the monthly fee is up to $9.95 a month. Magic Johnson’s prepaid MasterCard Magic Card has a monthly fee of $4.95. Suze Orman’s Approved Card charges $3 a month. The SpendSmart MasterCard that Bieber will endorse has a monthly fee of $3.95.
“Every time a teen swipes the card both the parent and teen receive an immediate text that tells them how much was spent, where it was spent and what the balance is on the card,” McCoy said.
Parents can lock and unlock the card if it’s lost or if a parent wants the child to stop using it for any reason. And it’s blocked from use at certain places.”
We can already feel the hate from the Haters against Bieber and this pre-paid card scheme! But the Beliebers will help us out. Stop the Hate!
How many who know about such matters will mock and hate on the Bieber? But we are here to defend Justin and his historic inspirational work to teach financial responsibility especially as Barack Obama ravages the country this Sequester Saturday.
Consider what Bieber is doing and what Barack is doing. Bieber is working for a company called “Bill My Parents”. Barack Obama is working for a corruption that says “Bill the Kids”. Who has the slightly higher moral high ground, huh, haters? ‘Bill My Parents’ versus ‘Bill the kids.’
The Bieber haters will correctly point out that the only one making quick big money off this deal is Justin Bieber. The Bieber haters are right when they note that most if not all of these prepaid debit/credit cards are scams that loot the population that buys them. That’s all true haters. But lets be fair on this and compare and contrast.
We didn’t hear complaints from the haters when Barack Obama donor Russell Simmons made hundreds of millions from his fleecing of the poor and the stupid with his financial card schemes. The haters did not speak up when Russell Simmons (yeah the guy who wrote Super Rich: A Guide To Having It All) went to Occupy Wall Street even as he fleeced the flock.
On this Sequester Saturday when supposed adults like Obama and his henchmen cannot pay the bills we wonder if Obama’s spending addictions are due to Barack’s sperm donor father being too busy donating his sperm to other witless women to teach fat little Barack responsibility in spending. Justin Bieber is not so irresponsible!
Consider this from Bieber’s spending scheme:
“One more important point:
One benefit, according to Cole, there’s no overdraft protection. If Morris tries to spend money he doesn’t have in the account, the purchase is denied.
Morris said that’s happened before.
“It’s extremely embarrassing,” Morris said.
But Cole said it’s teaching him a valuable lesson about money.
“He’s run up against the real world of budgeting,” she said, adding that it provides freedom while teaching him about the world of plastic purchasing power.”
Isn’t the above Sequester Saturday in a nutshell? The only quibble we have is that the “real world of budgeting” is not the world Barack Obama lives in. It’s not the real world in Washington D.C.
“Financial responsibility”, what a concept. Hey, if as we are warning about, Hillary Clinton 2016 is attacked to the point of destruction by Barack Obama’s army of thugs, henchmen, and haters, why not Bieber for President? Bieber for President! Beliebers Unite! Haters get back!
Justin Bieber certainly won’t do as badly as Barack. At least Bieber knows what it takes to work hard and has the experience to run big organizations. Bieber is a Canadian, not a natural born citizen of the United States, but after Big Media protected Barack Obama so much that not even questions or requests for documentation could be made, who is going to become a Bieber “birther”?
Yeah, Bieber is not of constitutional age, but according to the Obama Hopium Guzzlers the Constitution is so old it is old hat. So why not Bieber? Bieber for President!
“The White House says its hands are tied by the $85 billion sequester, but budget experts counter that it will have some flexibility to choose what to cut and what to save.
The wiggle-room is inviting accusations from Congress that President Obama is mismanaging the cuts.
Critics also say the flexibility could allow the administration to make the cuts more painful, in order to pressure congressional Republicans to raise taxes as part of a sequester-replacement. Some of these critics point to the decision to not deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf.”
With Bieber you get music. Ya gotta Belieb!
Barack Obama does not know what he is doing. Obama’s Now Added $6 Trillion to the National Debt. He’s a boob. Barack Obama proposed the sequester, threatened vetoes to protect the sequester, said the sequester would never happen, and now according to Politico does not what the next “sequester step” will be.” And it is only going to get worse as we hit more boob bumps like the one on March 27 when money runs out for the government.
Bieber would not let this happen, would he? Let’s get rid of Barack Obama and leave it to Bieber.
