    I do a lot of online buying and will do more in the near future (Midway, Spikes, Brownells, Home Depot, Stag arms etc...)
    I do it on a cash basis in that I do not buy what I do not have money in hand to buy.
    I need a card I can make online purchases with that is not a true Credit card, nor is attached to my account, so that if it gets compromised the loss is limited to only what I have on the card at the time.
    I have a card from Check into cash but it is damn near unworkable and fee intensive.
    what is out there that is Good secure and not managed by three year olds?

    I opened a second checking account that I can transfer from my first and got a check chard.

    No charges, no minimun balance and $35 charge for overdraft.

    Not linked to nothing so if it gets compromised, only what is in there gets lost but always can submit a claim and eventually should get your money back.

    Blessings,

    Sounds like the best plan.

    Wal mart money card. Does everything a real card does. But it does have a monthly fee, and cost $3 to load up to a $1000.

    NO. First idea was better. Or a real credit card and some self control. Just sayin'. Or write the check when you make the purchase, mail it out, and adjust your ledger immediately. Same thing.


    Can also pay your credit cards online, multiple times a WEEK if you need to (I do it once a week), to keep your checking account 'in tune' with reality.
