What are the benefits of a BB&T MoneyAccount?
See how easy it is to manage your money wisely with a BB&T prepaid debit card.
Managing money wisely is something we can all use some help with, and BB&T has found a way to make it easier. A lot easier.
Open a BB&T MoneyAccount, and you’ll have access to a prepaid transaction account that comes with a Visa debit card, but only lets you spend the money you have. No late fees, no risk of overdrafts, no way to get in over your head.
And it will never damage your credit. You’re always in control.
And you can still take advantage of all the benefits and services you’d expect from a BB&T account. You can even share an account with your spouse, child, relative or friend.
It’s easy to get started with a BB&T MoneyAccount. There’s no minimum credit score required. You don’t need to have a separate bank account. And there’s no minimum balance to keep.
Simply deposit money in the account and then use it when you need it, without ever worrying about things like interest rates and monthly balances.
You pay a low $5 monthly fee, or $3 if you load at least $1,000 on your card in any given month. Other fees may apply based on usage.
We’ve made it easy to load funds too, with free direct deposit available for payroll checks, tax refunds—even government benefits. And you can load funds anytime at any of our 1,800+ BB&T financial centers or at more than 50,000 other locations using Visa’s Ready Link Network.
And of course, you can transfer funds directly from your other BB&T accounts.
Accessing your account is even easier, because your MoneyAccount Visa card can be used just like a Visa debit card at stores, online, over the phone—for almost anything—at millions of locations worldwide. You can even use it to pay bills.
Plus, withdraw cash for free at any BB&T ATM or financial center. Or get cash back at many merchant locations when you make a purchase.
You can also view account information whenever you want—online, on your mobile device or in person.
And you can breathe easier knowing your money’s safe, because you’ll enjoy 100% fraud protection thanks to Visa Zero Liability and BB&T Complete Client Protection.
Bottom line: a BB&T MoneyAccount is an easy way to control spending and simplify the way you manage your money.
