Pre-Paid Credit Cards

The Dorchester Family YMCA membership program requires a credit card or a checking account for monthly debits.  If you do not have a credit card we have researched some Pre-Paid Credit Card options that will work.

A number of prepaid cards allow for automatic monthly debits/bill payments, though you do have to register the card. PLEASE make sure you understand ALL costs associated with the prepaid card that you choose. There are monthly costs, ATM surcharges and cash reload fees.

When selecting a prepaid card, we would suggest choosing one with an ATM network, some examples include:

  • The Chase Liquid is fairly affordable ($4.95 per month) and you can load/withdraw cash for free so long as you use Chase ATMs and branches.
  • The U.S. Bank Convenient Cash has a lower monthly fee ($3) but has fewer branches.

Here is a great online tool to help you determine the best card for your individual need

Not all cards off automatic bill pay, but here's a quick list of the ones we know offer the service:

  • Suze Orman Approved Card
  • Capital One Prepaid MasterCard
  • Akimbo
  • Walmart MoneyCard
