For students who don’t want to carry cash on them every day or who worry that if they use their debit/credit card too much they will overdraft their account, Carson’s prepaid food card is a perfect option.
The card is basically a debit card and a gift card together, said Corrine Aguilar, Carson’s Catering general manager.
Aguilar said the card great to give as a gift to someone who attends OCCC. There are no fees and no over drafting, she said. You put how much money you want on it, and it never expires.
“Parents and grandparents buy them all the time for students to use,” she said.
Carson’s prepaid cards can be used to make any food or beverage purchase at the school cafeteria.
The card is only good in the OCCC cafeteria but those who love coffee can purchase a separate card to use at the Coffee Shop. All the same great features apply, Aguilar said.
To buy a Carson’s prepaid card, simply go to one of the cashiers in the cafeteria and tell them you want one, Aguilar said.
She said you can go back anytime to put more money on the same card.
“The cards will never expire so it’s great to keep all year around and until you finish college,” Aguilar said.
