Video Transcript: Q & A – Why choose AccountNow?

So, how do you feel about being our tax sweepstakes winner?
Relieved. Excited. Surprised.
Is this your first time depositing your tax refund to your Accountnow card?
Uh-huh. It is. It is the first time.
And I almost didn’t do it!
Oh no! Why not?
I was just kind of debating on it, you know. I’d never done it before and you know how those debit cards can be scary sometimes. I’m glad I did it now.
So, what brought you to AccountNow, amongst all the other competitors out there?
Well, I did a lot of research on debit cards. I had seen a lot of advertisements about it. I researched it and it sounded good. So I tried it.
I got one and then I got my husband one too.
Oh so he uses one as well now?
He sure does.
What was it like before you started using our card?  Did you use a different prepaid card or another debt card out there?
No, I just had my bank.  I didn’t want to have to fool with all the …actually with the bank that I was using, my money got messed up. So, I cancelled my account and just didn’t have a bank account. That’s the reason I started looking for the AccountNow.
Because I was tired of paying the bank fees and all that. Getting checks cashed. So that’s what I did.
Good. Excellent!
