A Brink’s Prepaid MasterCard is an alternative to having a personal bank account that allows customer paychecks or government benefits to be direct deposited to their Brink’s account. With the MasterCard logo imprinted on the card customers can use their card just like a credit card and make online purchases, rent cars, make hotel reservations, and more. The card is free to receive and only requires customers to order one online at www.brinksstrong.com.
When a customer has completed the online Guaranteed Approval form from the Brink’s order site which consists of entering your name, address, and email address a card will be sent to your address free of charge. The next step after receiving the card is to simply activate it online at https://www.brinksprepaidmastercard.com/account/activation.m . The activation process includes entering the 16 digit card number that is located on the front of the Brink’s Prepaid MasterCard along with the 3 digit CVC2 number that is found on the back of the card.
Once you’ve completed the activation steps it is now safe to load your card with money. At the Brink’s website there are instructions on how to add money to your card which is basically done through a local retailer that has Reloadable Debit Cards on the shelves. There is a $3.95 reload fee for adding money to your card which is paid everytime you decide to reload your card. These locations can easily be found using the reload link on the Brink’s website and entering your zip code.
Each Brink’s MasterCard that is activated online includes the registration process so customers can monitor their account online 24 hours a day 7 days a week. All of their recent and past transactions are recorded in real time for ready viewing. Any changes to your account profile such as your name and address can be easily done. Text alerts are another feature to help customers manage their account better as they can be utilized to send notifications of your balance, nearest surcharge free ATM, transaction info, and more.
