Capcom Combos Fees For Prepaid Visas

By Spencer . February 17, 2009 . 3:17pm

capcomvisaCapcom launched a pre-paid Visa card with Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5, and Bionic Commando artwork. You don’t need established credit to get one since you deposit money on the card. Also, Capcom is promising special offers to card holders like “jumping the line” at events and discounts in their e-store. Sounds great, right? Maybe.

 

The Capcom Community Card also has a list of fees and restrictions that anyone considering to get one should be aware of. First you have to pay $9.95 (US) to activate the card. After that each month there is a $4.95 maintenance fee. This makes the total cost of owning a Capcom-Unity Card for the first year $69.35.

 

Each time you use the card in a point of sale transaction where you have to plug your PIN number in a machine the card adds $.25 to the transaction. Want to withdraw money an ATM? That’s an extra $1.50 per withdraw. Even if you keep your card in your pocket and don’t have any transactions 90 days you still need to pay a $5.00 dormancy fee. Want to cancel your account to stop bleeding money? Prepare to spend another $10.00 to cover the administration fee to close the account.

 

The full list of fees is listed below. Buyer beware.
