Next Step MasterCard Targets Addicts. Makes Them Jones for It to Work.

The new Next Step MasterCard has a special purpose, it’s supposed to make it harder for addicts to partake of their vice and use their debit card as the needle.

The debit card restricts use at locations that people might be tempted to unload their debit card to feed their habit. Places like liquor stores, bars, gambling places, ATMs, tattoo parlors, and probably strip clubs are off limits for this card. If strip clubs aren’t off limits yet, they probably should be. – Source

Oh you can take it in with you but don’t place a bet it will work. You can even set a daily spending limit on the card and have it report back what you are using it for.
