A new mobile phone top-up card is to be launched in August by Carphone Warehouse. The pre-pay card will be able to be linked to both your bank account and your credit card to enable you to top-up your mobile phone, wherever you may be in the world. The card information will also be able to be managed via your handset.
The company's CEO, Andrew Harrison, told Mobile-VoIP that, "The Carphone Warehouse prepay card, backed by mobile money management, will offer consumers a fantastic new way to manage their money whilst also ensuring that they get full value from our great offers."
Frank Martire, president and CEO at Metavante Corporation, the company, partners in the card scheme, said that, "Consumers tend to use them to budget and manage their day to day spending. They make great gifts for the kids, particularly for online shopping, as you can control the amount they spend. They are also great for holidays as you can use them anywhere in the world, just like a plastic traveller's cheque," he added.
