this doesn't sound like a deal at all.

1000 is like 1/100 of 95000 => 1.7

these prepaid visa/master have a pretty heavy fee to activate and they slap a fee on a monthly basis as well I remember.

Ive got these in the past from doing surveys for Farm Credit Corporation. They send me a $50 card, that's what it is. Don't have any activation fee, or any monthly fee either. Unless Im wrong or its new, never had it happen

If not, be a good way to get some extra points. Just buy it, then use it to go buy whatever you were going to buy

These cards have an activation fee. IIRC, $3.95 for the $25 card, and $5.95? for for the $50 one.

Activation fee is to whoever BUYS the card, not whoever uses it.

There's no monthly fee. (In the past it's waived for first 12 months. No clue if it's now completely gone or still just first 12 months.)

There is a $4.95 activation charge on these cards, the ones you get for surveys or rebates are already activated by the company paying for the rebate.
