The Credit Union Prepaid Card
The Credit Union Prepaid Card is a flexible, low-cost Visa Prepaid Card from ABCUL, the Association of British Credit Unions, and has been designed exclusively for Credit Union members.
The card works in the same way as any visa card, however it is pre-loaded with funds from your Credit Union savings, preventing you from going overdrawn. It is a simple and safe alternative to carrying cash, and a great tool for budgeting whilst not getting into debt.
There is a small one off cost to purchase the card of £5.00 this is taken from your initial transaction of at least £10.00. There are no monthly or annual fees. Every load from your Credit Union account costs 50p, withdrawals from a cash machine costs 75p, however cashback is free, and these can be used online and in stores.
You can get an application form at any of our branches, online or by calling our head office. Once the card has been issued you can activate it and obtain your PIN easily by phone or text. To load it with funds you must contact the head office and the transfer will be completed within 24 hours. You must have a mobile phone in order to activate the card.
You can check you balance and transactions online, by text or over the telephone.
