PRESS RELEASE — You’ve already got Def Jam albums in your CD collection and Phat Farm clothing in your closet. How about having a little something from Russell Simmons in your wallet, too?
With the Prepaid Visa RushCard, now you can. This prepaid card was developed by entrepreneur Russell Simmons (nicknamed “Rush”), co-founder of hip-hop record label Def Jam and creator of urban fashion line Phat Farm, to allow anyone to qualify for plastic that comes without some of the dangers of credit cards.
RushCard holders will not have to worry about incurring the costly penalties, high interest rates and potential for debt that can come with careless use of a credit card. But, with the ability to use the RushCard anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, they will still appreciate the freedom of plastic, including the ability to pay bills online or over the phone.
The Prepaid Visa RushCard only lets cardholders spend as much money as they put on the card. It also eliminates expensive check cashing fees or fears of nonsufficient fund, overdraft or bounced check fees.
