Access 360° Card Provides Convenience and Control
Cincinnati - Fifth Third Bank recently launched Access 360°, a reloadable prepaid card offering customers financial control, convenience and security. The card is available through any of Fifth Third's 1,300 banking center locations.
"Prepaid cards are a fast-growing form of payment and consumers see the value and convenience of using these cards for a variety of financial needs," said Steven Alonso, executive vice president and head of Fifth Third's Consumer Bank. "Access 360° may be used as a budgeting tool or way to segment spending, to make secure online purchases, or as an alternative to cash for those without a traditional bank account."

There is no charge to load money to the card and customers may do so through deposits at a Fifth Third banking center, direct deposit of paychecks or government benefits, or fund transfers from a Fifth Third Bank checking or savings account. The card can be used anywhere Debit MasterCard® is accepted, and customers may withdraw cash at any banking center or more than 2,400 Fifth Third Bank ATMs. Other features include:
Text alerts available for daily balance notifications.
