Prepaid On-the-Go

In an era where more time is spent text messaging then making phone calls, it's no wonder why prepaid cards are taking advantage of consumers' attachment to their cell phones. According to this article in the Wall Street Journal blog MasterCard and Blaze Mobile Inc have entered into a trial program where they have sent near-field-communication cards to their customers with instructions for them to attach the cards to the backs of their cellphones. After they set up a prepaid account, they will be able to make payments using their phone as specifically equipped NY taxi companies and several drug stores and retail stores around the US. The Blaze Mobile Wallet program is available at the iTunes App Store for $1.99.
