    VISA – it’s everywhere you want to be – We love our VISA card and our VISA Debit card. This retired Grandma resisted using credit cards or debit cards for a long time. Fear of the World Wide web disappeared when I learne dI could order from safe sites like AMAZON for my grandbaby to be and for my grandchildren’s EASTER, CHRISTMAS, BIRTHDAYS, etc. Upcoming wedding had a flurry of VISA purchases for every part of it I could. EASY, SAFE – finally in this century.
