There are many advantages of getting a RushCard.
First is that you can get one even if your credit history is poor. Many Americans are unable to secure a credit card because of their bad credit. But with a RushCard, good credit is not a requirement in getting this credit card. You only need to have a valid I.D. and pay for the one-time card fee.
Another advantage of having a RushCard in your wallet is that you can pay for any service or product as long as the establishment accepts Visa payments. Thus you won’t have to carry cash all the time. A RushCard is particularly useful if you are fond of making online purchases, as you can use it to pay for anything you buy online.
You need not worry about your card getting stolen. Your money is safe and secure with RushCard. And you can withdraw cash at any ATM using your RushCard.
You can also keep track of your money when you have a RushCard account.
How to Apply
As mentioned, you only need to have a valid I.D. to be able to apply for a RushCard. You will also need to pay minimal fees of $3.95 and $9.95, depending on the RushCard design. But the fees would be deducted from your card balance the first time that you load money to your RushCard.
You can apply online by visiting www.rushcard.com or calling 866-787-4227 anytime of the day.
Upon receipt of your RushCard, call the phone number indicated on the sticker and key-in your PIN. You can then start loading funds to your RushCard.
Rush Card Fees
What makes the RushCard a more intriguing option for many people is that there are very minimal fees that they’ll have to pay every time they use the prepaid debit and credit card.
For instance, there is no fee every time they withdraw cash using their RushCard as long as they do so in an ATM that is part of the RushCard network. There are more than 23,000 ATMs which you can use to withdraw cash without fees.
There are also no fees for direct deposit, money transfer, bills payment, and for making purchases when the purchase is made in the United States. RushCard also does not charge for a replacement card as long as the card was lost within 12 months after the account was opened.
Loading cash to a RushCard account is easy as this can be done through checks or loading cash through accredited retailers. Another way of loading your RushCard account is by transferring funds from your checking or savings account. Or you can transfer money from one RushCard account to another.
