The most downloaded mobile game in history is now featured on a prepaid card. Angry Birds, the wildly popular app that lets players aim slingshots at evil pigs, has been turned into a prepaid card by Kaiku Finance and Rovio Entertainment.
The card features a choice of four designs: the Red Bird, the Yellow Bird, the Bomb Bird and the Bad Piggies – also known as “Attack!,” “Space Red,” Boom!” and “Piggies.” More designs are scheduled to be rolled out this year.
Kaiku was already a player in the prepaid card industry, with its Silver and Black Prepaid Visa cards. The Angry Birds card features:
- No fees for inactivity
- No minimum balance requirement
- Use the card anywhere that Visa is accepted
- Withdrawals at over 50,000 ATMs in the Allpoint Network
- Direct deposit through credit card, bank account or from another Kaiku prepaid card
- Mobile apps for iPhone, Android and Blackberry to manage your account
- Customer service is free and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
You can even make money by referring friends. KaikuKarma pays cardholders $10 for every friend they refer who gets the card and spends at least $100 in the first three months
