YouGov VISA Question

Recommended Posts

I noticed that yougov has gone to a prepaid Visa card if you cash out at $100. Does anyone know if a PIN number is provided so you can take this card to an ATM and pull out the cash?

I just got one in the mail last week and while I threw out the paperwork that came with it, the back of the card has "No Cash or ATM access" printed right on it.

Darn it. Maybe I’ll just do the Amazon GC then. Thanks for the info.

This is how I get around that.I have a budget and lets say I spend a hundred dollars a week at the grocery store so instead putting that money towards that I use the VC   at the grocery store.Then the money I would have used at the grocery is now mine to spend anyway I would like.In other words just trade in the VC for some other cash expense.Just a suggestion.

I never bother with VGCs unless they're physical cards and at least 50 bucks (more hassle than it's worth) - but yougov's are worth it. But yeah, definitely can't use them at an ATM, but you can use them at any physical store. I like using them at places where I'm spending a round dollar amount number, makes it easier to keep track of how much is left. Then if it's down to just a few dollars, where it would be difficult to spend at a store, at that point I turn the remainder into Amazon credit. ;)

Not a fan of the VGC because you can never spend it all evenly. However, I pay my internet bill with them. ATT has a kiosk at their stores to pay your bills and I just throw the whole 50 or 100 towards my bill. I havent written a check for an ATT bill in over a year because somewhere I seem to be snagging VGC either from yougov or OneOpinion or an online chat survey or beverage diary!

Wow, it takes me well over a year to get to $100 with yougov.  Usually around 2 years.  That is a great way to use it though.

Whatever balance I have leftover I use to buy am Amazon GC. That way I can use it all up (with rewards Visas in general—I try to get PayPal when I can though)
