Well, as if we didn’t know, the Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard was, and has now been proven to be a “No”.
When this first ‘hit the block’, there was much fanfare, and Kimmy Cakes was splashed all over the place promotin’ the card with her and her sisters images on it. Another business venture or the Kardashian Klan. But it has recently come under fire for excessive fees and other not so consumer-friendly thingys.
Let’s check it out:
Activation costs between $60 (6 mos) and $100 (12 mos). (That’s a lil high and the 6/12 month thingy… Is it the Kardashian name?)
Monthly fee of $7.95 (after what they call the ’initial purchase’ period)
Replacement fee is $9.95 ($25 if you want a rush on it!)
Add money? $1.00 + 2.5% surcharge of transaction amount
Bill pay? $2.00 per transaction
If you cancel the account and want YOUR money sent in a check? $6.00.
Call Customer Service with a live operator? $1.50
Check your balance? $1.00
Card declined? Another $1.00 if you’re in the U.S. .50 extra if you’re not…
And the value goes down with every transaction, even if the card is not used! What a rip off!
After the Atty General of Conn., Richard Blumenthal attacked the Kash Klan, callin’ this a ‘scheme’ targetin’ impressionable teens with a fantasy of Keepin’ up with the Kardashians, (he called it ‘predatory‘),while rippin’ them off, they had their mouthpiece send a ‘letter of termination’ demandin’ they stop usin’ their names and images in association with the card.
Either these vapid chicken heads KNEW this was the case when they signed on and hoped no one would notice, so caught up in the ”glow that is Kardashian”, or they were the airheads we think they are and just said yes without checkin’ into the facts (except how much they were gonna make.)Then again, don’t they have lawyers and ‘people’ to do that?
It’s not like Kimmy & The Klan are strangers to hoodwinkin’ people. ShoeDazzle.com charged people $40/month just for Kimmy Cakes to give them her “personalized shoe suggestions”. (Everybody ‘prolly got the same ‘personalized’ suggestion. Hey-how would they know?). A workout tape called, “Fit in Your Jeans by Friday.” Come on ladies we KNOW this don’t work-especially if it’s Thursday… The awful perfume, teeth whitenin’ pens, sunless tan lotion (?), and all the cheap, slutty clothes on Bebe and QVC. All bullshyt and people are buyin’ it.
These chicks are into makin’ a fast buck. Butt injections (yea Kimmie ‘s got em!), Botox and breast implants costs money…
I just can’t help but think that had no one raised a fuss, The Klan would be still smilin’ in front of cameras promotin’ this card. But now this supposedly wholesome image they’ve built is threatened. (How wholesome is givin’ brain on camera, and to Ray J’s D-Lister ass at that?). This seems to be the primary reason for this sudden change of heart. They’re not stupid, just greedy.
And yep, I said it: Khloe looks like a man, and I’m not takin it back.
