Care Bears licensor AG Properties has signed a deal with card provider Card.com for a range of prepaid debit cards in the US.
Users can sign up for the cards, each with a different Care Bears design, here,
“We are excited to partner with CARD.com and offer Care Bears fans a fun and unique banking opportunity outside of our customary media channels” said Lindsay Martinez, AG Properties’ vice president of licensing and business development.
Card.com prepaid debit cards can be used everywhere Visa or MasterCard is accepted and the firm is keen to stress that these 'are not gift cards, but rather bank-issued, fraud protected, FDIC insured debit cards with a user-friendly online banking experience.'
“This partnership gives fans of the Care Bears an entirely new way to engage and represent their love of the brand every time they use their card in a totally unique way that isn’t offered by any branch bank on the planet," said Card.com CEO Ben Katz.
"Our aim is to bring an easy-to-use and affordable banking experience that reflects people’s passions."
