What is a US Bank Cash Card?

US Bank Cash cards are one-time loaded VISA prepaid cards that are used to pay research subjects.  The cards can be loaded with a minimum of $20.00 and a maximum of $1,500.00.  The cards do not have cash access at the ATM or point-of-sale but can be used anywhere VISA is accepted.

What are the fees for the US Bank Cash Card?

The cost per card is $1.95.  Cards are kept unloaded onsite, so please only order cards when you need them.  These are VISA cards and the cards do expire after two years.  We order small batches of cards on a regular basis to ensure the cardholder has plenty of time to spend the money on their card.

The fees for the cardholder are included in the envelope with the card. View cardholder fees here.  The most common fee is the inactivity fee, so please do not load cards too far in advance.  The inactivity fee clock will begin as soon as the card is loaded.
