TIC Customer Since 1985

I love TIC. Their rates are always a fraction better than the competition because they are member owned. Their credit card is one of the cheapest around, with no annual fee and a low interest rate. The only downside is that in this case you don't get what you don't pay for. Try to buy something in the back of Walmart and then go to the front checkout, and you will find your card frozen. Try to call to get your access restored outside short bankers hours five days a week and you will find that the office that can do that for you is closed. No 24/7 service. On the other hand, TIC offers a prepaid credit card in place of Traveler's Checks. Because it is prepaid, beware: no one has a motive to watch out for fraudulent use. However, that works two ways. No one is going to tell you not to use it twice on one visit to a Walmart. Just don't let anyone else get a hold of it, because since no one is watching, anyone with a Money card in hand can use it right up. The only thing that might hang them up is if someone asks for their ID :-) so be SURE to put on the back of the card with a Sharpie marker, ASK4ID!!!
