Is that SBB Pre-paid credit card worth getting if you can't get a credit card from a bank?

Badly missing a debit card here. Don't understand why they don't have them, as the "bank cards" that you're given are largely useless for..anything.
We use our Post card at all the stores here, just like a Bank card. Might look at the Post card.

I think you don't get renewal forms, it just renews automatically i.e. the charge for the halbtax is charged to the credit card and you receive a new card in the post.

Seems clear to me that the reason the SBB charge less for the halbtax with credit card is exactly because they renew automatically, so the SBB is guaranteed money rather than waiting for the lazy customers to renew their own cards, as is the case for normal halb tax cards.
