Prepaid Telephone Cards. Are You Getting Your Money's Worth?
Recently, Consumer Reports released a study on Prepaid Telephone Cards in New York State. The study found that many cards lack information on the rates and fees about using the card. Prepaid calling cards are used heavily by immigrants in America to call family members abroad. The New York State Office for New Americans and the Consumers Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports, will conduct a consumer education campaign to offer tips for purchasing and using pre-paid calling cards. Visit the Consumer Reports website for more information on the study and to find a consumer guide on how to get your money's worth when using prepaid cards.
