The Kim Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard Debit Card

Kim Kardashian KardWhat will they do next? Reality star Kim Kardashian has launched a new credit card called the “The Kardashian Kard. ” This is a prepaid credit card that seems aimed at youth because they cannot yet be approved for credit cards.

In terms of card characteristics, it costs between $60 and $100 to activate the card, which is an extremely large starter fee for prepaid cards. In fact, most of the Kardashian Kard fees are outrageously large compared to those for ordinary debit cards. Here is a list of the high fees:
