ATLANTA, Jan. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — University Fancards LLC, home to The Official Gift Card of College Sports™, recently announced an agreement with InComm, a leading prepaid product and payments technology company, expanding its college-branded Mastercard® Gift Cards program to include 16 additional teams, now totaling 19 teams across 11 states. Mastercard Gift Cards are available nationwide and online. This agreement marks the expansion of the teams represented by University Fancards which started with Tennessee, Texas and Alabama.
Cards are available at pharmacies, grocery stores, discount stores and convenience stores with designs that honor a variety of teams, including Michigan, Alabama and Florida State. “Because the cards are open-loop, they can be redeemed wherever Debit Mastercard is accepted within the U.S., and they can be loaded with any amount from $20to $500,” said Matt Lanford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Financial Services at InComm. “This makes University Fancards an attractive and convenient option for gifting or self-use for sports fans this year.”
InComm and University Fancards have worked together for three years. InComm is the program manager responsible for the processing, distribution, activation at the point of sale and management of the website and customer care for University Fancards. Recently, InComm and University Fancards donated more than $17,000 to the University of Houston to assist their faculty, staff and students in their recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey.
“As we work hard to bring more teams into the Fancard Family, it is crucial that we put just as much effort into bringing our products into more stores,” said Greg Boggs, Executive Vice President of Operations at University Fancards. “By making sure our cards can be found easily, we are giving passionate fans the ability to proudly carry their team’s card. That is where InComm played an important role, leveraging their expansive network to make our cards a convenient option for fans of any team in our family.”
