The MileagePlus GO Visa Prepaid Card is a prepaid card that can compete with most credit cards when it comes to rewards and low fees. This card is one of our favorites.

A prepaid debit card for travelers

Back in the day, rewards was unheard of for prepaid debit cards. Now they're commonplace, and the MileagePlus Go Visa Prepaid Card is one of the best. You can earn 1 to 2 miles per dollar spent with this card, depending on your plan.

This card offers two plans to choose from: a monthly plan and a yearly plan. The monthly plan is $5.95 per month and the yearly plan is $85 per year, which equals out to be $7.09 per month. You would think that a yearly plan would average out to be cheaper per month than a monthly plan, but with the yearly plan you get 1 mile per dollar spent whereas with the monthly plan you only get 1 mile per two dollars spent.

With this card you can earn up to 2,500 miles per month, redeemable for travel at United.com.

But there's a catch: you only earn miles on signature transactions. Signature transactions are transactions that are ran as CREDIT. Debit transactions (transactions that require a PIN) do not earn miles.

Low fees

Unlike most prepaid debit cards, this card does not charge a you card purchase fee. Most cards will charge you anywhere from $1 to $10 for simply buying the card. With the MileagePlus Go Visa Prepaid Card, this is not the case.

There are also no purchase fees, balance inquiry fees or ATM withdrawal fees (presuming you make your withdrawal at an ATM that belongs to the MoneyPass network).
