Is it a turkey? Kardashian Kard blog makes Thanksgiving carnival
Update: Kardashian Kard kaput!
Our blog about the potential pitfalls of the new Kardashian Kard prepaid card was selected for this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance.
A blog carnival rotates to a different blogger each week. That person acts as the host and selects the best blogs published about a particular topic (in this case, personal finance) during the week.
Hosted by Sweating The Big Stuff, the 284th edition of the personal finance carnival featured a Thanksgiving theme. Categories included The Turkey, Football, Family, Shopping and the Wishbone.
The Kardashian Kard blog reports the growing concerns, expressed by Consumers Union and others, about the prepaid card. Critics say they worry that impressionable young people will sign up for the card, which is marketed by celebrity sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian to teens and young professionals. The card carries high upfront fees ($59.95 for six months or $99.95 for a yearlong membership).
