Discover Current Prepaid Card $5 off Promotion
Early this year, Discover introduced a new prepaid debit for teenagers, the Discover Current Card. Even though the Current card is designed specially for teens, it gives their parents a great deal of control on the way their children use the cards. The goal is by using this card, parents and teens can work together to set spending limits and establish responsible spending habits that will benefit the children for years to come.
Features of Current by Discover
Discover claims that the Current card is the only prepaid card that helps parents monitor their teens’ spending (I don’t know whether this is true or not). With the Current card, parents can set up spending limits and restrict what their children can shop and where they can shop. This gives teens freedom of using the card to shop while helping their parents maintain control of the spending.
Other benefits of the Current card include free direct deposit for parents and teens, as well as free deposits from any credit card or bank account. Once money is added, teens can use the card to make purchases online, over the phone and in stores. In addition, the card can even be used an ATM card for cash withdrawals. The card also offer $0 fraud liability guarantee.
The Current card, however, is not free. It has an annual membership fee of $50, or $5 a month. Other fees include $0.50 per ATM withdraw (the first four withdrawals are free though), $3 to replace a lost or stolen card, and $5 to receive a card statement by mail. Free card statements can be viewed online any time and there is no inactivity fee.

BTW, I had a post on Zecco promotion code for $200 bonus for their Forex trading account a couple of days ago. It turned out that only those who received the original email will get the bonus when all the conditions are met. I have updated the original post with this information. Apologize for the confusion!
