Will Pre-Paid Internet Cards Be a Precursor to Pre-Paid Site Access Cards?: The story doesn’t say so, but this will be happening in the near future. It already happens with a few online gaming sites and music CD related promotional sites. Earlier this month, Target retail stores started selling AOL “starter kits,” which include an AOL CD-ROM and 500 minutes of Internet access for $14.99. Consumers can also buy refill cards for 325 minutes at $9.99, 700 minutes at $19.99, or 1,200 minutes for $29.99. Prepaid customers are not required to submit credit card information to AOL in exchange for access. The company said its pricing plan targets people who don’t own credit cards or feel uncomfortable giving away their account information.
