Angry Birds and Bad Piggies Set to Invade Wallets
March
4

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

Fees and details

The card costs $3.95 to sign up and has a monthly charge of $1.95. ATM withdrawals from in-network ATMs are free. Out-of-network domestic ATMs carry a charge of $1.45 per use, in addition to the amount charged by the ATM operator. International out-of-network ATM withdrawals cost $2.45, and there is a 1.5% International fee for all foreign transactions.

Loading the card via credit card also has a fee. If you transfer money from your credit card to the Angry Bires card, there will be a 3% charge. Loading by a third-party retailer costs between $2.95 and $4.95 and is available through Visa ReadyLink or Money Gram.

If cardholders want to check their balance or look at their statement, they will save money by using the mobile app which is free. Checking your balance at an ATM will cost 95 cents, and there is a $2.95 fee for a paper statement.

Kaiku prepaid cards are fully insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to protect consumers’ funds according to applicable terms.
