AccountNow Strikes Gold with New Visa® Prepaid Card

SAN RAMON, CA, May 28, 2010 – AccountNow, one of the financial services industry’s leading providers of prepaid Visa cards, has introduced a powerful new gold card product with features and services usually found only through traditional banking relationships.

The AccountNow Gold Visa Prepaid Card lets cardholders borrow money – with the iAdvance® line of credit from MetaBank1 -- and build credit history*. AccountNow Gold cardholders who enroll in Direct Deposit receive higher limits on all deposits and withdrawals. Gold Card customers also receive VIP customer service, free online bill pay, and the power, prestige and convenience that come with carrying a Gold Visa Prepaid Card. And, there’s no monthly fee when $3,000 or more in deposits is placed on a card during a month.

"We’re confident that the combination of products and services available with the AccountNow Gold Visa Card will have broad appeal to the large number of consumers who are looking for alternatives to a bank or a checking account, as well as those who are looking to use credit responsibly and enhance their creditworthiness," said Jim Jones, CEO of AccountNow.

Since the AccountNow Gold Card is a prepaid card, there is no ChexSystems or credit check required. And, as an added incentive, cardholders receive a $15 account credit** when they set up a recurring direct deposit and make at least two direct deposits of $100 or more.

AccountNow Gold Visa Prepaid Card holders have access to the millions of merchants and services where Visa debit cards are accepted.
