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.

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.
“We can’t obviously be foolproof, but we want to add another line of defense in the way of people being triggered to go out and relapse,” Eric Dresdale, one of the founders, says. “The unfortunate thing with people in this community is, if they want to relapse, they’re going to find a way to relapse,” he acknowledges. “What we’ve done with this product is make it that much more difficult.” – Source
