How to Check Your Prepaid MasterCard Balance

by Andrew Todd ; Updated September 11, 2015

Applicants unable to obtain a credit card may opt for the convenience of a prepaid MasterCard. Prepaid MasterCards are accepted wherever a normal MasterCard is accepted and allow you to avoid carrying cash. Additionally, you will be able to use the prepaid MasterCard to reserve hotel rooms, rental cars and airline flights--all of which require a major credit card to hold the reservation.

Look at the back of your Prepaid MasterCard for the customer service telephone number.

Call the telephone number listed n the back of your card.

Enter your 16-digit account number when prompted. Your account number is the 16-digit number on the front of your credit card. Once the account number is entered, the automated system will provide you with the most recent information pertaining to your account, including recent transactions, pending transactions and current available balance.
