Any RUAers using the i-card?
« on: May 01, 2015, 11:15:50 AM »

Jocelynn: What if I decide to take an extended vacation in Europe, traveling from London to Paris to Geneva to Milan? Am I going to be able to easily access other currencies or am I stuck in American dollars because that’s what I deposited?

Erika: If you are country hopping, it’s simple to switch the currencies on your card. You can simply log into the i-Account website (which can be done anywhere in the world), access your account and issue instructions for the amount of cash you’d like to load onto the i-Card and in which currency. So if you have euros on the card and need Swiss francs, you can easily make the switch. Best of all, the i-Account is extremely affordable. It has no account minimums and very low fees.

Jocelynn: Who would the i-Account be best suited for since not everyone is a global traveler?

Erika: I look at the i-Account and the i-Card as a passport for you. It’s the cheapest and simplest way that I know of to place some assets outside the U.S. and outside the U.S. dollar. Having even a small account and using the card when needed is great insurance in the event we have a situation in the U.S. where bank accounts are frozen, our financial network is seriously disrupted or another such unforeseen event occurs.

Jocelynn: Thanks for joining us, Erika. i-Account is a great way to get some of your wealth outside the United States and provides easy access while you’re traveling. For more information about i-Account and the i-Card, please click here.
