The growing trend in prepaid cards is increasingly embraced by leading financial institutions such as Chase and American Express, and retailers such as Wal-Mart, 7-Eleven and Walgreens.

CARD.com Prepaid Cards include 55,000 in-network ATMs, free direct deposit, and free check deposit via the company's highly intuitive mobile app.
"This partnership gives Elvis Presley fans an entirely new way to pay," said CEO and co-founder of CARD.com, Ben Katz. "People are looking for a new way to bank, free of the traditional banking system. We're here to give them what they want." Katz continues, "Our goal is to provide an easy-to-use, affordable banking experience that reflects the individual passions of consumers."
