UniRush, LLC

unirush-rushcard-logoUniRush, LLC is the company behind the RushCard line of prepaid debit cards, including the popular Baby Phat Prepaid RushCard, the KLS RushCard as well as the Pink, Purple and Black Diamond RushCard line.

The overriding theme presented by the UniRush folks is to help provide basic financial tools to the millions of Americans that currently cannot or will not establish a banking relationship with a traditional institution. According to UniRush, they have opened the door to countless unbanked individuals and families across the country and been a leader in the industry as well as pioneered several programs that now are a part of many prepaid product offerings. Some of these include being a forefront partner in bringing Visa and MongeyGram to the prepaid market, initially providing check writing services to customers, establishing direct deposit programs and being the first prepaid card to include online account management (for balance tracking, budgeting and expense analysis).

As economic constraints bind many consumers hands, prepaid products like the RushCard have given many the flexibility and purchasing power of a network branded card while not having to worry about accumulating debt and outrageous interest charges that come with many credit cards. Bank account overdraft fees and exorbitant payday check cashing fees can add up for many people that do not possess a traditional bank account. Prepaid card operations like RushCard can assist those needing help getting their financial world in order and eliminate most if not all of those ghastly charges. Also gone are the demeaning credit qualification hoops that lending institutions put their customers through. A simple one-page form can be found online for the RushCard that only requires basic name, mailing address, contact info and a social security number to sign up for a card. There is no credit check or income verification initiated. If you provide the basic information requested, then you should be approved.
