AccountNow Launches New Mobile Site

"The fastest way to access your prepaid card account"

SAN RAMON, Calif., Sept. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AccountNow, Inc., one of the nation's largest prepaid card companies, is proud to announce the launch of its new mobile website. With smart phone-optimized images and navigation buttons that work easily with a finger click, customers log into their account, sign up for an AccountNow Prepaid Card, retrieve direct deposit account information for payroll, benefits, or tax refunds, find a local ATM, and check their card balance faster than ever. If customers have questions, a call to AccountNow customer service is just one click away. Visit www.accountnow.com from a web-enabled phone to test drive the mobile site.

"The same fast and easy experience our customers enjoy on our website is now faster and easier on their smart phones," according to Jim Jones, CEO. "The new mobile interface is easier to read with large buttons designed for quick navigation. It's the fastest way to access your prepaid card account," he said.

The new mobile site is streamlined, rock-solid, and fun to use. Text, images, and buttons are all designed to load fast and look great on small smart phone screens. On-the-go AccountNow customers will have a smooth and fast user experience when loading money onto their prepaid card or retrieving account information. AccountNow's active social community will appreciate the direct access to their popular social sites like Twitter and Facebook.

With more people using smart phones, a mobile site makes sense. Later this year, AccountNow customers will be able to deposit checks directly from their smart phone. This will be a great addition to services already available like Online Bill Pay, balance and transaction text alerts*, and cash-back purchase rewards.

The easy-access mobile site makes tax season simpler too. When completing tax forms, consumers can quickly find their account information right from their cell phone. AccountNow customers can e-file their income tax returns on the AccountNow website in just a few minutes. With e-file and direct deposit onto an AccountNow Prepaid Card, customers get their tax refund faster than waiting for the U.S. Treasury to mail a refund check. Plus, it eliminates any uncertainty of postal delivery and avoids check cashing fees.

Consumers do not need to have an existing bank account to direct deposit their tax refund. With an AccountNow Prepaid Card, account and routing numbers are provided and there is no credit check to open a new prepaid card account online.
