Kim Kardashian has a pretty diverse résumé, if you want to call it that. From a sex tape to a reality TV show and several product endorsements, the girl gets around. Her latest venture includes a prepaid credit card—for kids. According to the New York Post, The Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard launches tonight at Pacha in New York and is backed by Mobile Resource.
Why should kids as young as 13 get plastic? Well, the idea behind the card is so that parents can monitor their kid’s spending amounts and habits—you can’t charge drugs. Plus, having a card at a young age with parental supervision could help kids learn responsible spending habits. Whether this is a good idea is yet to be determined.
