Hello: I have a friend in Canada I help out sometimes and send him a few dollars now and then. Recently I've switched to wiring money, so I could send him money without it taking so long, but he's having issues with this on his end.

So, thought I might get some kind of prepaid card that he can use in Canada and I can load money on from the USA, but Visa is no help, as I have not had any responses from them on my questions on this.

What I'm looking for, is a prepaid card my friend in Canada can use any time he wants, it doesn't expire, it does not have fee's, it doesn't charge you to reload, and you don't have to carry a balance to keep it open.

I don't mind paying for the card up front, but I don't want any fee's associated with it. The list of types of cards online is endless, but I don't know which ones are best for this purpose. And none of these cards state anything about being able to have TWO people on the account.

Any suggestions?
