You are starting over after being denied a checking account.

Did you have a bad month and bounce a couple checks? And now you can’t get a checking account anymore. It happens, and you’re not alone. A prepaid debit card is a great option because there’s no credit check1 and you can start using it once you activate the card and verify your identity.

You want the convenience of online bill pay.

Why bother with paying bills by check or in-person? With online bill pay, you can schedule to pay your bills on a certain date and don't have to worry about missing a due date again.2 You can even get updates to your mobile device once the funds are sent.3

You need a way to manage your money on-the-go.

Sometimes busy days keep us from getting things done but prepaid debit cards make it convenient to manage your money on-the-go. You can get your balance, check your most recent transactions, or find a list of the closest reload locations. Another great thing to mention here is opting into Anytime Alerts™. You can be alerted via text message or email regarding important details having to do with your account.3 You can even choose to get daily or weekly alerts.

You want to shop online, but you don’t have a credit card.

Shopping online with your prepaid debit card is a breeze. Visa debit cards are accepted by many online merchants. The convenience of having your favorite items delivered right at your doorstep using your prepaid card doesn’t get any better.

You want to set a budget and stick with it.

We all struggle with budgeting. In fact, two out of three Americans don’t even set a detailed budget.* Setting limits for yourself can be tough, but a prepaid debit card can make it a little easier by letting you manage your money. The ACE Elite™ Card has budgeting features to help you stay on track in the Online Account Center. It is all about convenient financial control being right at your fingertips.
