SAN RAMON, Calif., Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Convenience, ease-of-use, flexibility and peace-of-mind are some of the reasons that Angela Flurry in Alabama has grown to love her AccountNow® Gold Visa® Prepaid Card. Now, as a winner of the 2014 "Triple Your Refund" sweepstakes, Angela has $15,000 more reasons to appreciate AccountNow.
"I use my AccountNow card for everything – groceries, gas –," Angela says. After more than two years as an AccountNow customer, this was the first year that she had her Federal tax refund deposited directly into her AccountNow card account, and while she admits to being "a little" anxious, her experience with AccountNow's direct deposit program put her at ease. "I get my money earlier [with direct deposit*]," than when she was with her previous bank, Angela says. The safety and security of being able to have her funds directly deposited into a secure, FDIC-insured account is also important to Angela. AccountNow prepaid card accounts are FDIC insured through The Bancorp Bank or MetaBank®, Members FDIC.
AccountNow Prepaid MasterCard® or Visa® prepaid cards work like an online checking account, and are perfect for those who choose not to have a traditional bank account. Similar to a bank-issued debit card with a traditional checking account, AccountNow customers can make purchases and withdraw cash with their AccountNow prepaid card.
Among the other features of the AccountNow prepaid card that Angela finds most helpful are the Mobile Text Alert program+, which sends notification of deposits and transactions directly to her mobile phone and allows her to request information on her account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. "I love the convenience and access to my account when I need it. I didn't have that with my bank."
"Angela is one of our many satisfied AccountNow customers," said Jim Jones, CEO of AccountNow. "These promotions are a fun and engaging way for us to spread the word about AccountNow and the features and benefits of our prepaid cards and other programs. We are very pleased with the level of enthusiasm and participation among both current and potential customers, and have more in the works."
Since 2011, AccountNow, Inc. customers have received $50,000 through a variety of promotions. In 2014, AccountNow has awarded $20,000 through its "Triple Your Tax Refund" promotion.
