Postal CU Offering Convenience of Visa® Reloadable Prepaid Cards

(Woodbury MN) August 31, 2012 – Postal Credit Union (PCU) in Minnesota is excited to offer a safe, convenient alternative to carrying cash or a checkbook. The Visa® Reloadable Prepaid Card is as easy to use as a Visa® Debit Card, without the need for a checking account or credit check. The card can be used to make purchases anywhere Visa® Debit Cards are accepted, including stores, online or by phone.

The Visa® Reloadable Prepaid Card is perfect for students, travelers or anyone who’d like to keep better track of their finances without a traditional checking account. Cardholders can have their paycheck automatically deposited on payday, giving them immediate access to their money for groceries or meals, to pay bills or to get cash at more than a million ATMs around the world. It’s also perfect for household budgeting, sending money to friends and relatives, and as a secure way to shop online without using your debit or credit card number.

Unlike a credit card, there are no interest charges and unlike a checking account there is no required minimum balance, plus the cardholder cannot accrue debt. In addition, if the card is lost or stolen, the money is safe, and the card can easily be replaced.

The Visa® Reloadable Prepaid Card is available for purchase at all PCU locations, and online at
