Stored-Value Card Brings Convinience

The CampusFunds Program from American Express Special Teams provides campuses with an all-encompassing stored-value campus ID card. Value is placed in a prepaid declining balance fund by cardholders, who then use the card for a myriad of services including lab access; athletic events; financial transactions such as fax, copier, printing, laundry, retail purchases, parking, food, event ticketing and online banking; and telephony services such as long distance, calling card and voice mail service. AE Special Teams provides a card-access system and an on- campus card office to market and manage the program with no upfront capital investment by the participating institutions. American Express Special Teams, Inc., Brookings, SD, (800) 915-9826.
