Press release

BREAD is highly recommended - yet again

The award winning BREAD Prepaid Maestroยฎ Card ( has just received a โ€˜highly recommendedโ€™ rating by comparison website (

Oliver Edis, Director of commented โ€œWe were particularly impressed with the BREAD Card, the application process is extremely user friendly, and costs are generally low. We compared BREAD against other prepaid cards, and looked at various spending and loading scenarios in order to assess its competitiveness. We also felt that aspects such as being able to pay for the card by SMS, the fact that there are no monthly fees and the recently launched BREAD CASHBACK site (, stood the BREAD Card out from the crowdโ€.

The BREAD Card is a new breed of payment card. Unlike conventional credit cards, which provide you with a line of credit, or debit cards that are linked to a bank account with an overdraft facility, the BREAD Card is a โ€˜pay-as-you-goโ€™ card that you load with cash or have your wages transferred. When applying for a BREAD Card there are also no credit checks.

Tim Day, Marketing Director of BREAD commented โ€œWe are flattered to receive yet another positive review from an independent comparison website and equally impressed with the thoroughness in the way reviewed BREADโ€.
