With FlexClear, cardholders can easily share money with family and friend cardholders, avoid check cashing fees and reload their cards with ease at thousands of retail locations in the United States. FlexClear supports major load networks, including Green Dot, Allpoint, MoneyGram, and Western Union.  Cardholders can also share funds card-to-card using any mobile phone via secure text messaging with Tyburn's propriety Scoot™ Mobile Money platform.

"As large banks seek higher fees from consumers who use debit cards, reloadable prepaid cards such as FlexClear offer a way for people to manage and share their money in an easy, cost-effective, and secure way," said Deborah Davis, Chief Operating Officer of The Tyburn Group. "The FlexClear prepaid card has the security and consumer protection features that have historically only been available to consumers opening an account at the nearest branch office of a traditional financial institution. In addition, we believe this is the first card of its kind to offer both health discounts and rewards for cardholders."

FlexClear cardholders are automatically enrolled at no charge in the WellCard Health Discount Plan which offers pre-negotiated health care discounts of up to 80% on a wide range of health services for members and their families. The WellCard Health network includes more than 410,000 physicians, 45,000 ancillary provider locations and more than 59,000 pharmacies nationwide that offer discounts to FlexClear cardholders.
