The award winning BREAD Prepaid Maestro® Card ( has just been reviewed by leading comparison website ( and awarded a 5 star EXCELLENT rating.

Mark Maffia, Managing Director of commented “BREAD Card now performs well above standard in comparison to other Prepaid Cards and has exceptional features and benefits. BREAD Card’s application process is particularly impressive as well as their account management interface”.

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 ‘pay-as-you-go’ card that you load with cash or have your wages transferred to. When applying for a BREAD Card there are also no credit checks.

Tim Day, Marketing Director of BREAD commented “We are focused on making the BREAD Card the most competitive and efficient Prepaid card in the UK. We have recently introduced free loading at the Post Office, free loading via BACS transfer and fee balance checking via SMS; these important changes have been made to improve our customer offering and it is satisfying that they have been well received by both comparison websites and indeed our customers”.

Editorial note

The BREAD Card costs £10 and there is no monthly fee.

The card can be loaded with cash at any PayPoint® outlet (there are over 23,000 PayPoint® locations across the UK) and there is a fee of 3% per load. Loading via bank transfer/BACS/ wages transfer is free. Loading at the Post Office is also free. A transaction fee of 2% applies to purchases and a fee of £1.50 for ATM withdrawal.
