Tool of the Day: MoneyPack and Paypal

We use Paypal all the time. 90% of our clients prefer to pay via Paypal and the money goes right to your pocket if you have the Paypal Debit card. We also constantly pay developers and freelancers this way. Recently we've been buying Greendot MoneyPack cards at RiteAid and Radio Shack to add money to the Paypal account and have even had a client pay us this way as well. There is a $4.95 fee to buy the card, but as far as I know, Paypal doesn't charge you a fee when the money hits your account, so if you're sending someone a big chunk of money, this is the way to go.

Today I saw this promotion where they'll give you $10 if you add funds using a MoneyPack card. This only applies to first time customers, so I'm out of luck, but maybe one of you can use it. You'll also be entered into a drawing to win $1000.

I don't get anything out of presenting this offer to you. Just good Karma.
