"I want people to know this is my card," said Johnson, chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises. "I created this card because I believe everybody should be able to function in today's society where money has changed, and cash is no longer king. The MAGIC prepaid card can help make people's lives easier because it's safer and it allows cardholders to feel more in control. It's also important to me to be clear and upfront about the fees, so that people easily understand how this card works."

But beyond that, it's a card designed for anybody who wants more enjoyment, stability and control in their life."
