Olive Loves: Olive Oyl Personalized VISA Prepaid Debit Cards


I’m just thrilled that Card.com has chosen to feature moi on a new line of Olive Oyl® Personalized VISA® Prepaid Debit Cards! O.K., to be fair, they also have Popeye® Personalized VISA® Prepaid Debit Cards. Gotta give the Sailor Man his due. I was curious about how the whole thing works, so I sat down for a chat with Ben Katz, CEO and co-founder of Card.com.


Q. What made you choose me – oh yes, and Popeye, too – for your new line of Personalized VISA® Prepaid Debit Cards?

A. In today’s fast-paced mobile world, we are delighted to be able to open this banking option to your fans and Popeye’s, Olive. You two are one of the world’s most famous duos. Popeye has always been associated with strength and health and caring for his “goil,” Olive Oyl, and practicing fiscal responsibility is sound advice for couples in any economy. Now your fans will be able to take charge of their finances for themselves and their loved ones while making a bold statement about their own fun-filled personalities.
