Spend Your Money the Way You Want Too

It’s hard to believe that tax season is already right around the corner but it is. It’s always like that, you think you have time and then before you know it taxes are due. Which this year is a lot like Baby3. I think I have time but if Tax Season is right around the corner than so is Baby3 which means so is lots of expenses.



If you’re lucky though tax season can also come with a little bit of extra spending money. Which is going to be beyond helpful for us this year!

I know that for me in years passed I have had these grand ideas of what I’ll do with my tax refunds. Maybe fix a certain part of the house, pay off certain bills. The list goes on. Then the money gets deposited into my account and before I know it, it’s gone, spent on one thing or another. I lost track of it so quickly.

This year we can’t have that happen to us again. We’re going to need any tax refund that we get this year to help us with Baby3’s arrival. Most likely because we’re a last minute type of family we’ll get our tax refund in April. We plan on using the refund to help us with any things Baby3 related that we still need to get and/or finalize.

In order to make sure that it goes to Baby3 and everything Baby3 related we plan on getting our tax refund loaded onto a Visa Prepaid card.


Getting your taxes loaded onto a Visa Prepaid card is easy. It works like getting a direct deposit into your bank so it’s quick, much quicker than getting a check in the mail! It’s also safe due to Visa’s “zero liability” policy. If your card is lost or stolen, you’re protected.

If you’ve ever done a direct deposit you know that you need a bank account number and a routing number. Without those numbers you can’t do a direct deposit or load your tax refund onto your Visa Prepaid card. To help people find out these numbers Visa has created a Know Your Numbers instant win game.

By entering to win you get a chance to win a tablet PC or a $15 Visa Gift Card, in the process your learn the importance of knowing your account and routing numbers. Each time day you enter you get the opportunity to win the grand prize of a $2,000 Visa Gift Card.

Here’s hoping that if it’s not me that wins the grand prize it’s you 😉
