Keep purchases secure and financial information private with the AAA MemberPay Visa® Prepaid Card. A chip-enabled payment solution that delivers all-around protection, MemberPay isn’t linked to primary bank and credit accounts, limiting exposure to potential fraud. It’s the smart choice for budgeting funds, travel spending, making online payments and sharing funds with family. With so many easy ways to manage and reload MemberPay, it can go anywhere you go. Cardholders load the amount of cash they want to spend and replenish funds when necessary. MemberPay offers up to two companion cards and can be used as a financial solution for the whole family.

Card issued by MetaBank®, N.A., Member FDIC, pursuant to a license from Visa® U.S.A. Inc. Use everywhere Visa debit is accepted.

To purchase a AAA MemberPay Visa® Card, you will need to provide:

  • Valid photo I.D.
  • Date of birth
  • Social Security number

These are banking and U.S. Patriot Act requirements. AAA cannot issue a AAA MemberPay Visa® card without this information.

This card is also a great option for traveling students. As a parent, you can order a card and then add a companion card for your child. This makes it easy for you to refill the card if needed while your child is away.

The minimum age to purchase a AAA MemberPay Visa® Card is 16. For minors age 13-15, parents can purchase a AAA MemberPay Visa® Card, and the minor age 13-15 can be issued a companion card. Note that cards cannot be issued to minors under the age of 13.
