  • The advantages of Student Reloadable VISA® Cards

    Our Student Reloadable VISA® Cards help parents teach teens financial independence and responsibility, while keeping parents informed, involved and in control. This card is a great tool for teens to learn how to budget and spend on their own. Teens can use it for domestic and international travels, shopping in stores, online, over the phone, and by mail order. There are zero loading fees, so parents can reload it again and again at no additional cost. Plus, the card ships straight to wherever you want it. Send it to your home, or right to your child if they’re away. To learn more about how to order a card and to read more of the most commonly asked questions, visit the FAQ page.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    • Our new Prepaid My Card Manager site is now live. Existing cardholders will need to create a new login using the “Get Started” link and choose the option “I have a card.” You will now have only one user login to access all your Reloadable cards on the Reloadable My Card Manager website, and the same user login can also be registered to access all your Gift cards on the Gift Card Manager website. Existing cards must be registered on the My Card Manager website before you attempt to purchase additional cards for yourself; be sure to log into My Card Manager before purchasing another card. Also, be sure to be logged in before linking your other prepaid reloadable or gift cards to your user login.

    • Yes, to reload visit the website, call the number listed on the back of their Prepaid Card, or visit your local AFFCU branch.

    • Our simple yet powerful dashboard is designed to provide you with your most important information all on one screen. The dashboard contains your available balances for general spending, budgeting, your set-aside funds, recent transactions and loads along with critical account and transactional messaging.
    • The My Card Manager Spend Tracking budgeting component will track your purchases based on budget category. If you choose, upon your initial use of the Prepaid Card, we will track your transactions for the first 30 days. After those 30 days, we will automatically create budget categories and amounts based upon those transactions. You will always have the opportunity to edit (add/delete/change) the budget categories and change the suggested budget amounts. Using the intelligence within the My Card Manager system, we will proactively keep you informed when you are spending within your budget or spending at a rate that is below or above your estimated budget.
    • No, we do not decline transactions based on Spend Tracking. The budgeting display is informational and does not affect your ability to make purchases within your available Prepaid Card balance. However, the money allocated towards your Set-aside funds has been set aside and is not part of your available balance.
    • Spend Tracking on the dashboard on the website or mobile app tells you how much of your current balance we expect you to spend based on your budget settings.
    • You can set-aside funds automatically and start saving money towards a larger purchase. Using the My Card Manager app or website, you set up a goal for us to automatically transfer an amount from your available balance towards the goal as frequently as you would like. While the funds are being held for the goal, they will not be part of your available balance.
    • No, the funds are still on your reloadable Prepaid Card; My Card Manager just removes them from your available balance so you do not spend them. You can move them out of your Set-aside balance and back into your available balance at any time.
    • You can transfer the funds out of Set-aside back to your available balance at any time using the mobile app or website.
    • Money to Set-aside on the dashboard on the My Card Manager website and mobile app shows how much of your current balance is scheduled to be automatically moved to your upcoming goals.
