Prepaid Visa/Mastercard in USD available in Canada?

Hello,

I was wondering if it's possible to get a prepaid card loaded with US dollars in Canada?

If not, can anyone recommend a site online to order one that ships to Canada with a low fee?

Thanks

Yeah I was looking around the other day for this as well.

Unfortunately with no luck.

Rbc's prepaid cards look like exactly what I need but I hate to pay the 2.5% on top of the current exchange rate to use it in the US.

Especially when the money I plan to load it with is already converted to USD

If you're needing a virtual prepaid cc, then check out entropay.com

If you need a physical one, then I think only way would be to head across the border, since I think most merchants in Canada won't bother keeping USD cash to give back as change for USD Prepaid cards.

You're right, but thats not the reason. There is no change-giving necessary.
