Redgage $25 Visa Card Arrives Quickly

Just a quick post to let you all know that my Redgage Visa Card arrived in the mail a few days ago. My balance at Redgage had grown to over $37 so I decided to request the minimum payment of $25 to see how long it would take to receive the card. I asked for my withdrawal on 5/21 and it arrived on 6/5, so that's about 2 weeks time for processing and mailing. I immediately followed the activation instructions that came with the card and verified the balance to be $25 to spend anywhere Visa is accepted. 

One thing I'm confused on is that the FAQ section of the Redgage site states that a $5 one time fee will be deducted from your first withdrawal to cover the cost of the card, so I'm not sure why I received the entire $25 on my card instead of $20. Maybe someone goofed and I'll get that deducted from my account at a later date. Either way, it's awesome to get paid this quickly for doing something fun and interesting from home.

My Redgage balance as of today is $12.98, so when I reach the $25 mark again I'll add it to my card electronically and instantly the next time.  Redgage also states that future withdrawals added to an existing Visa card will have a 5% fee deducted so I'll just have to wait and see if that is true. Has anyone requested the Visa card from Redgage and if so, have you noticed any fees taken out of the balance?
