I am a visitor. How can I buy a Flex Card?

Answer:


Be sure to get a receipt!  Swipe your Flex Card at the end of the deposit transaction so that the funds will be applied to the Flex Card. Following the prompts, you have 10 seconds at the end of the transaction to swipe your Flex Card. Get a receipt so that if funds are not applied, you can be reimbursed.


  1. Select Flex Card Purchase from the menu.

  2. You will receive the following prompt:
    WOULD YOU LIKE A RECEIPT? YES/NO

  3. We strongly recommend obtaining a receipt:
    Press the button indicating YES

  4. You will receive the following prompt:
    INSERT BILL BELOW

  5. Insert cash in increments of $5, $10 or $20 bills. The total increases with each bill inserted. No change is dispensed. All cash deposited is credited toward the Flex Card, less the $1 card purchase fee.

  6. When all bills have been inserted, press the indicated button.

  7. You will receive the following prompt:

  9. Press the indicated button and wait for the Flex Card to be dispensed.

    IMPORTANT: If you do not press the button within 10 seconds, the transaction will be canceled and your money will not be refunded.
