Probably not.  Most debit cards in the US are 
hooked to checking accounts - and many accounts 
charge up to $12 if your account drops below $2000 
- and it's almost universal that companies charge 
something like $25 a month starting 6 months after 
your account becomes inactive. If it remains inactive 
for a couple years, they are legally required to turn it 
over to the state; but they don't want to do that.
