Let’s say that you’re well above 70, have a “regular” credit card that costs you 100.- a year and 1.- per month for a paper bill (and the bank says that’s the only way, unless you have the full banking package).
Let’s say you mostly buy stuff in chf and eur online, occasionally go to Germany or Italy, and you spend a few days in the UK every year. And you’re pi**ed off by these costs, for the little use you make of the card.
So you go and ask your son (who is wise, frugal (mostly), and knows many things about the world) to find a better solution.
I was thinking of having her get a Neon card.
It’s prepaid (safe), it’s easy (just send money to the account using the IBAN) and simple (one app with few options, and she’d only check her balance occasionally anyway), and it’s free.
What do you think?
What would you recommend to your parents / grandparents?
