can you recommend a good cash card - that will work like credit card or debit card.. to be 'filled' up in usa, but use it in canada.

example, you pay 300$ in usd in usa, and then take that card to canada and use it wherever credit card is used. then fill it up here in usa, and the card should have the money in canada.

thanks.

Masstercard has a prepaid card that is accepted anywhere. You can load the cards with funds and use it same as cash for shopping or paying bills.

According to this there is no credit check and no bank account required and if you register it and it is lost or stolen, you are covered.

While checking to see if it would work in Canada (looks like it does), I saw this other mentioned as maybe a better deal.
