Thanks for the info.


Does the ComData card work like a check card with a Visa or Mastercard logo on it, so if I needed to pay a utility bill or something online before I get regular direct deposit, I could do that?


No. Strictly for fuel, assorted expenses and Cash.

It will not work as a debit/credit card.

I use mine all the time for my own account. Just don't try to over draw, you'll get dinged.

A comdata card can be swiped just like a debit card at Walmart, most Casey's, QuikStar and probably a whole slew of other places. I knew about the Walmart thing.. that's how I spent a portion of my very first paycheck, since it was on my card. A trainee of mine, just for giggles tried it at other stores and it worked lol. They thought it was awesome because they didn't have to waste money on ATM fees.
