MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--U.S. Bank, lead bank of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB), now offers the new Visa® Convenient Cash™ Card (Convenient Cash Card) in all of its branches across the United States. The Convenient Cash Card is a reloadable prepaid card that allows cardholders to make purchases wherever Visa® debit is accepted.

The Convenient Cash Card is for consumers who seek convenience, safety and control of their everyday necessities, such as groceries, gas, bill payments and online purchases, or to help them separate discretionary spending from their funds in other accounts. As a reloadable prepaid card, the Convenient Cash Card helps customers budget their money and avoid overspending because it only lets a cardholder use the funds that are available on the card. Cardholders have access to account management tools; including text alerts, email notifications and online statements.
