Kardashian Kard Kancelled: The Real Reason Why

Julie Ryan Evans

KardashiansAh well, the Kardashian girls tried ... and failed miserably. The Kardashian Kard, a prepaid debit MasterCard with the faces of Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian emblazoned on it, has been pulled from the market by the trio.

And just when you were planning on getting one, I know. Krap!

The reasons they had to pull it are numerous, starting with the fact that it was a BAD card that came under a lot of fire since it was introduced just a few weeks ago.

According to CNN, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said it charged "pernicious and predatory fees" that included $99.95 just to own the thing and $1 and $2 charges for things like adding money to the card or seeking assistance from an operator.

"Among the prepaid debit cards now on the market, the Kardashian Kard is particularly troubling because of its high fees combined with its appeal to financially unsophisticated young adult Kardashian fans," he wrote. "Keeping up with the Kardashians is impossible using these cards."

While in similar cases one may be more likely to take a buyer-beware stance, the problem in this case is that prepaid cards in general are targeted to young people who may not always be mature enough to make the hard financial decisions. And in this case, the Kardashians just may be too much for them to handle.

Let's face it, young fans of the Kardashians probably aren't likely the kids in the math club.

But the real reason the girls pulled the plug on the Kard?

No, not because they suddenly got a conscience, but because ...


Only 250 people had been lured into buying it.

Turns out most fans are smarter than you'd think ... or their parents said no.

The Kardashians have refused to comment, and made a blood oath to never speak of the disaster again. Well, they refused to comment, anyway.

But don't feel too bad for them, it's not like they don't have anything else going on.

From diet pills to shoes, fans have plenty of krap products to choose from when it comes to wasting their hard-earned dollars for the sake of the Kardashians' bank accounts.

Are you surprised at all the Kardashian Kard failed?
