What's the best secured debit card to own?

So many apps that I have on my cell phone require a credit card on file with them and I'm nervous about having my only credit card tied up to so many possible hack able sources. I wanted to get a Mastercard or Visa secured debit card to use in these instances. Low cost and good customer service are important.

Comparing Credit card gift cards and pre loaded cards?

Oh ye of money sense help me! I want to have a card that I can use for online services. I especially like the idea of a card that has a set amount of money that I can use. My primary use would be for Uber or Lyft. [more inside]

Please help me make sense of an unusual debit card theft

My debit card was stolen. Normally this would be a no-big-deal, happens-all-the-time kind of situation, but this particular card had never left the house and seems to have been stolen from the kitchen table. Please help me decide what to do. [more inside]

Walmart running Debit Card as debit even if I hit Credit button?

With recent purchases at Walmart I've noticed something odd. Despite hitting the "credit" button on the keypad when swiping my Visa Debit Card, my receipts list "EFT Debit" instead of listing it as a Visa transaction. What has me concerned is that during these transactions, I don't get asked for my Debit PIN. [more inside]

Cheapest, easiest debit card expenses?

My credit union has a nice high interest rate but only if you jump through some rather annoying hoops. I mostly don't jump high enough to qualify and I'd like to figure this out. I need the easiest, cheapest (ideally, automatic) debit card charges I could accomplish on a monthly basis. [more inside]

Debit cards compromised twice - what's the deal here?

Today, my bank's fraud detection department gave me a call - apparently, somebody had attempted to use my debit card for a purchase in Colombia. I live in London, UK. This is an annoyance, but it's particularly worrying because something similar happened less than two months ago - they called me up and said that although my card hadn't been used, they had information that it may be compromised. The card that was used in Colombia today was the replacement, which I've had for only a few weeks. My money is safe and my card has been cancelled (again). But my main concern is HOW this has happened - keylogger? Dubious, but legit-seeming site? Compromised wifi? And how do I keep myself safe in future? [more inside]

In search of a decent prepaid card

I need a card I can charge with money, online, for someone else's use in grocery stores, department stores, gas stations, etc. They don't need to be able to get cash with it. It shouldn't be possible for them to take out more money than I put in. This will be an ongoing thing, so I'd like to minimize fees. Has anyone had any experience with something like this that they liked?

What bank should I open an account with?

I need a bank account for some work-related stuff. I need a debit card for it, like yesterday. What nationally available banks can I open a checking account with that will give me a (temporary, at least) debit card immediately? Bonus if they have a lower than $20 minimum balance. I'll be arriving in Wharton, NJ tomorrow to open this, so bigger bonus if there's a branch there.

Crossborder Debit Dilemma

I was recently in Canada (from US) and tried to use my debit card to buy some groceries. Two different cards were rejected, for different reason codes. I would have experimented more, but I was standing between a rapidly angering Canadian woman and her beer. I see by Googling that Canadian debit cards use a different network, Interac. Are there any banks/credit unions that issue debit cards usable in both Canada and USA. I know I could've used ATMs and cash, but this would make for a less hassling cross-border experience.

"Debit or credit?" "Debit." "Okay, but debit or credit?"

When I pay by credit card or debit card in most stores (NYC), the entire process is automated except for one step. The clerk always has to ask me "Debit or credit?" The card machine also asks me that -- in fact it forces me to choose a payment type -- but my choice doesn't do anything (apparently). I choose debit and checking account, enter my pin number, decline cash back, accept the amount... and then the clerk asks, "Debit or credit?" And when I say "Debit," he pushes a button on his side of the counter. Why?
