“Saving Money and Sanity with the Prepaid Visa® RushCard” [Advertorial Writing Sample]

05 July 2018 / By Kesha Phillips


Please see below for an advertorial I wrote in May 2015 to promote the launch of a new product. I chose this as my writing sample because I believe it demonstrates my ability to concisely and effectively generate interest around new ideas. – Originally published on WeGotKidz.com

I’m so excited! You guys are in for a treat as I’ve just teamed up with my friends at Prepaid Visa® RushCard to share with you a couple of amazing ways to keep your family on budget and more organized.

Back in college, I used a prepaid card to handle most of my finances. Unfortunately, with all of the miscellaneous fees, the card just became too frustrating and confusing to use. Half of the time I had no clue whether or not my money was coming or going!

The Prepaid Visa® RushCard helps make confusion a thing of the past. Visa has introduced a new  standard on prepaid cards having implemented the Visa Clear Prepaid seal.

Using a card that’s covered by the seal means that your day-to-day financial activities are covered by a crystal clear fee plan. You’ll know when you have to pay a fee and when you don’t.

With the Prepaid Visa® RushCard you also get a level of protection as a consumer.
Visa’s Zero Liability fraud protection provides you with security if your card is ever lost or stolen. How awesome is that?!

There are also no overdrafts permitted; so you don’t have to worry about those pesky fees or spending money that you don’t have. This fact alone led me to an amazing idea on how I could use the Prepaid Visa® RushCard in my life today as a mother and wife.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has a tendency to over-spend when doing weekly grocery shopping. Those delicious smells from the bakery and those sweet treats near checkout get me every time. (I have a killer sweet tooth. What can I say?) I go over budget and am left having to scrimp on my next trip to my grocer.

I decided to try to put a stop to this. I ordered a Prepaid Visa® RushCard. My plan is to load it with my weekly allowance for groceries. That way, I know exactly what I have to spend and can shop and budget accordingly. Doing it this way is going to take some of the stress out of handling my weekly grocery bill!

Ordering the card was super easy. There were a few really cool looking cards for me to choose from; and after answering just a few questions my card was on it’s way.

Stay tuned to find out how easy it is to load the Prepaid Visa® RushCard and check out my experience using the card for my regular grocery shopping.
