|Prepaid Debit Card|
The prepaid debit card market continues to heat up, and that means companies are going to be coming out with new prepaid debit / credit cards with added features, in an effort to separate their product from the rest of the pack.
Looks like the folks @ PTS Card Solutions will be releasing a new prepaid debit MasterCard® with rewards. All I can report right now is that the new card will be called the "FastMax Rewards" prepaid debit MasterCard, and it should be released sometime before July of this year. Further details about the FastMax Rewards card can be found below in the snippet from today's press release:
"PTS Card Solutions Inc. (Pink Sheets: PTCD) announced today that Global Links Card Services Inc.
