Usher Card

R&B artist Usher Raymond IV has given his blessing to a new MasterCard targeted at unbanked Americans. The new “Usher Raymond IV Debit MasterCard” provides exclusive access to “The World of Usher,” which offers merchandise discounts and concert tickets. The new card is not a credit card, rather users access only the funds that are loaded or stored in the prepaid account. Consumers will incur a one-time $9.95 charge to obtain the card, and a $10.00 activation fee, put toward shipping and handling costs. The card can be loaded with funds by using cash, check, credit card, debit card, direct payment from a personal banking account, or direct deposit from an employer. The card is being issued by BANKFIRST with marketing provided by the Platinum Financial Group. For more information visit: “”
