It seems nowadays everyone has there own opinion on prepaid cards. As users start turning away from credit due to the recession, it looks as prepaid will steadily soar.

Prepaid cards have really taken off over the past few years. What is the next opportunity that will come out of this growth?

If we can find a way to eliminate many of the fees attached to prepaid cards, I think the growth rate would significantly increase. Adding fees to prepaid cards only hurts the consumers who need this service.
