Prepaid internet cards

Hello everyone,

i think i have seen the same subject being asked quite some time ago and i'm not finding it now and probably it's outdated.
If i want a prepaid internet card to buy from steam for example (not specific to steam or other place) where can i get one without the hassle of bank accounts and so ? Also I'd like an insight on prices too and do refunds work ?

Thanks !

you can refill it,  it can hold upto 500$

edit: also, it is possible to receive money to it, i tried long time ago from skrill.
also you can just refill it from the atm, without going in to the bank.

What do you mean by "do they all charge a good margin ?" ?
You can refill it at any ATM for a 1$ fee or at the bank for 4$.
I personally use my SGBL eSurf card that I got with my bank account. Had a Blom Mini Card before that.

You can do any transaction normally as long as the card is linked to your name.

I had a bank audi prepaid card, they had to re issue one (exactly the same) but this time linking it to me in their system.
