U.S. Bank’s Contour Card Offers Flexibility and a New Way to Manage Money
MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 6, 2013– U.S. Bank has introduced the new U.S. Bank Contour Card that gives customers the convenience of a debit card, the control of a bank account and the freedom of cash.
“We continue working to give customers innovative options to manage their finances,” said Kevin Morrison, senior vice president for U.S. Bank Retail Payment Solutions. “The Contour Card is our latest example. It’s a great tool to manage expenses by giving you the power to budget your money across multiple prepaid cards under the same account. Customers can use Contour as their primary payment card, but it is also a good fit for anyone who wants a new way to manage money.”
Cardholders can open up to five additional card accounts that can be linked to their primary account. Additional cards are an effective and easy way to give money to others such as a teen, nanny or other caregiver or separate personal expenses such as gas, groceries or bills. Cardholders can use Contour anywhere Visa® Debit cards are accepted, get free cash withdrawals at any U.S. Bank or MoneyPass® ATM, and direct deposit paychecks to their accounts at no additional charge.
“Contour gives you control over your spending in so many ways,” said Whitney Bright, market leader for consumer prepaid at U.S. Bank. “From tracking your spending to transferring money between accounts, Contour gives customers the ability to manage it all from one location through their personal My Contour Dashboard.”
