AccountNow® Acquires Prepaid Wireless Assets


Wireless Telecom Mobility Now Offered to AccountNow Customers at prepaidwireless.com and babblebug.com

SAN RAMON, CA, February 10, 2014 – Jim Jones, CEO of privately held AccountNow, Inc, one of the nation’s largest prepaid card companies, today announced the acquisition of www.prepaidwireless.com From Fuze Online, Inc and www.babblebug.com from Generis Group providers of wireless telecom products and services, primarily top-ups for prepaid phones.

"Customers of all companies win. They now enjoy easy access to new financial and telecom services delivered exactly the way they want them. And more products and services conveniently delivered from a trusted partner," according to Jim Jones, AccountNow, Inc. Chief Executive Officer.

More people are going mobile as smart phones become more affordable. AccountNow customers already deposit checks directly from their smart phone and use Online Bill Pay, balance and transaction text alerts and cash-back purchase rewards, so they would seem natural prospects for telecom products and services. Internal surveys confirm that they are attracted to telecom services too.

PrepaidWireless.com and babblebug.com offer prepaid phones, domestic and international prepaid minute refills, sim cards, and a rewards program that can be redeemed toward any of their products or services. Their customers are also natural prospects for AccountNow’s financial transactions offerings.

AccountNow’s easy access mobile site makes tax season simpler and PrepaidWireless.com and Babblebug.com prepaid mobile telecom customers need and want pay-as-you-go financial transaction services. AccountNow believes that a multi-channel strategy with meaningful benefits for customers will prove to be a significant driver of future profits. Prepaid telecom services are very consistent with AccountNow’s existing payment capabilities for prepaid MasterCard® and Visa® cards under the AccountNow and READYdebit brands. The company expects to integrate access to prepaid telecom services for AccountNow and READYdebit customers before the end of March.

“Our customers will love the added financial services from AccountNow, and AccountNow customers will love our wireless telecom services which are available nationwide and internationally," said Dave Wilkes, CEO of Fuze Online.
