Regions cashed my check. I put the cash on a Visa prepaid card.

Convenient.

Hoo-rah.

seems silly when a debit card comes with the account you need to have to actually cash a check.

Maybe the advantage is that he got cash from the check right away rather than having to wait 2 business days to clear his account?  But was still able to get the convenience of plastic over cash.

That's my best guess from seeing other visa pre-paid campaigns, that they are marketing to people who need money so badly that they can't wait for checks to clear.
