Verizon My Rewards+ Visa Prepaid Card Review

VerizonMyRewardsVisaI received the Verizon My Rewards+ Visa Prepaid Card recently after redeeming from my Verizon home phone and DSL account. Turns out, this card is part of the MyPrepaidCenter.com network and has it’s own 5% cash back program. While with only $10 in my account, this program isn’t much use to me but I can see that it could be useful if you are willing to wait for your balance to build up or have a large starting balance. All cash back rewards will be added to your balance within 10 days after your purchase. The list of merchants will be listed in your MyPrepaidCenter account. As of today, the list of merchants are as follows:

American Kennel Club’s Meet the Breeds of 2015

This year’s American Kennel Club Meet the Breeds event was held on Valentine’s Day on Feb 14, 2015 in the middle of another snowstorm at Pier 92 of New York City. Tickets were available for sale online at $20 for the Meet the Breeds event and if you’re interested in watching the Westminister Masters Agility Championship, you can add another $15 for a total of $35 for both events.

This year, the Agility Championship and Meet the Breeds were in separate buildings. And despite the snowy weather, there were many people (with many bringing their families) lining up for the event.
