Question

How old do I have to be to get a walmart money card?

I'm 16 (about to turn 17 in July) and I'm wondering if I can buy a Walmart money card (prepaid card)? How old do I have to be to activate it? I live in Texas if that helps in any way. My parents wont let me use their credit card and they told me to buy a walmart money card, but I just want to make sure I can activate it before I buy it. I've heard that if you're 16-17 that you have to have your parents consent...but I'm going to activate it online so how would that "parent consent" work online?
Thanks in advance

You can get a decent prepaid at www.esuperfind.com/prepaidvisa.php it's a full Visa so it even works with paypal.
You just need to be 13 to get it.
If you are looking at other cards, the requirement for them to work with paypal is you must be able to check the card's statements.
If you can't do that it's no good.

How old do you have to be to use the Card?

Anyone above the age of 18 can buy and use this Visa Card. For minors between the age of 16 to 17 we require parental/guardian authorization to activate. Minors between the age of 16 to 17 need a parent or legal guardian on the phone with them during the account activation process in order to accept the Cardholder Agreement on behalf of the underage child. Some merchants will ask to see the ID of the cardholder. So, it may be wise for underage users to have a student ID or other type of valid ID when using the Card.

What you can do is ask one of your parents to get a card and you can get one at most any age but it will be under their name.
