Description

    PRIOR APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    This is a continuation-in-part of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 09/500,690, filed Feb. 9, 2000, the contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    This invention relates to methods and systems for issuing stored value cards, and more particularly to stored value cards which are funded by a particular sponsor.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    On many occasions, companies must issue checks to people for payment of wages, claims, refunds, reimbursement of expenses, or other reasons. For example, a company may have to issue a check every Friday to pay employees for the previous weeks work. In another example, insurance companies have to issue checks to pay insurance claims. Issuing checks may be costly, as the processing costs associated with issuance, reconciliation, and/or replacement of lost or damaged checks may be substantial.
  • [0004]
    Checks may also have the drawback of being inconvenient to the recipient. Many banks require a checkholder to have an account with the bank to cash a check. Often, bank accounts charge monthly service fees, and/or charge based on the number of transactions (checks written, electronic debits, deposits, etc.) made in a predetermined time period. For non-account holders, checks must be cashed at the bank from where the check was drawn, or a fee is charged to cash the check. These fees may be five percent of the total amount of the check or more, thereby reducing the amount the recipient actually receives.
  • [0005]
    These and other drawbacks exist to the aforementioned alternatives.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0006]
    An object of the invention is to overcome these and other drawbacks in existing purchase schemes.
  • [0007]
    A further object of the invention is to provide a stored value card which can replace the need to issue checks.
  • [0008]
    A further object of the invention is to provide a stored value card which allows immediate access to funds without requiring cash or access to a personal checking account.
  • [0009]
    A further object of the invention is to provide a stored value card with an associated sponsor funded stored value account (or “account” or “stored value account”), where a sponsor may add funds to the account.
  • [0010]
    These and other objects of the invention are accomplished according to various embodiments of the invention. One embodiment of the invention provides a method of issuing a stored value card affiliated with a sponsor and an issuer, where the stored value card is funded by a sponsor and issued to a cardholder. An account associated with the stored value card is created, where the sponsor funds the account. The stored value card is issued to the cardholder, where the cardholder is prohibited from depositing funds into the account. According to another embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may be permitted to deposit funds into the account.
  • [0011]
    Another embodiment of the invention provides a system for issuing a stored value card affiliated with a sponsor and an issuer, where the stored value card is funded is funded by the sponsor and issued to a cardholder. The system may comprise a processor for creating an account in a database. A sponsor input/output may receive instructions for the processor to fund the account. An issuing device may issue the stored value card to the cardholder.
  • [0012]
    Other objects and advantages exist for the present invention.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • [0016]
    The present invention is described in relation to a sponsor funded stored value card issued to a cardholder. In this environment, the present invention provides a stored value card account that is funded by a sponsor and issued to a cardholder. The cardholder may withdraw funds and receive information about the account. Nonetheless, the characteristics and parameters of the stored value card are equally applicable to other cards and card accounts.
  • [0017]
    For purposes of explaining the present invention, an embodiment of the present invention is set forth. A stored value card may be used by a sponsor to replace payroll checks issue to a sponsor's employees. A stored value card of the present invention may be issued to each employee by an issuer, such as a bank or other financial institution, on behalf of the sponsor. Each stored value card may have an account associated with the card.
  • [0018]
    The sponsor may fund the account associated with the stored value card at periodic intervals corresponding to the employee's payday (e.g., every Friday, every other Friday, the last day of the month, etc.) by instructing the issuer to fund the stored value card account. Employees may withdraw the funds at the employee's discretion, through known manners of withdrawal, e.g., automatic teller machines (ATM), point-of-service (POS) purchases, transfers to other accounts, etc. According to an embodiment of the invention, an employee may obtain the balance of the stored value card account, but may not deposit funds into the account. According to an embodiment of the invention, an employee may obtain the balance of the stored value card account, and may also be permitted to deposit funds into the account. The present invention will now be described in more detail.
  • [0019]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, a sponsor funded stored value card has an account associated with the card. A sponsor funds an account, and may access other information associated with the account, such as the balance of the account and the transactions that have occurred in connection with the account. A cardholder may withdraw funds from the account, and may access other information associated with the account, including the balance in the account and various transactions that have occurred with the account.
  • [0020]
    [0020]FIG. 1 illustrates a flow chart for issuing a sponsor funded stored value card according to an embodiment of the invention. According to an embodiment, a sponsor may become interested in issuing a stored value card at step 10. Interest may be generated by advertising, such as radio and television commercials, internet advertisements, or direct mailing solicitation, such as through regular mail or through email. Interest may also be generated through previous relationship with an issuer, such as having previously issued a stored value card, or participated in other programs offered by the issuer. Other methods for interesting potential sponsors may also be used.
  • [0021]
    An issuer may determine if a sponsor has previously set up an appropriate program to allow issuance of a sponsor funded stored value card at step 12. If a sponsor has previously implemented a sponsor funded stored value card application or applications, a sponsor may request a sponsor funded stored value card at step 18. If a sponsor has not previously funded a sponsor funded stored value card, an issuer consultant may assist in determining the appropriate sponsor funded stored value card application at step 14. Various applications may include a sponsor funded stored value card for expense accounts, payroll accounts, or other applications. Examples of other applications will be described in greater detail below.
  • [0022]
    An implementation specialist may assist in implementing a selected application or applications at step 16. Implementation of a selected application or applications may include ensuring that applicable government regulations are properly followed, providing interface access between the appropriate mechanisms of a sponsor and the appropriate mechanisms of the issuer, and ensuring that a sponsor has the appropriate hardware and software to enable interaction with an issuer. Other implementation may also be required.
  • [0023]
    A sponsor company may request that a sponsor funded stored value card be created at step 18. A request may be a written request, such as through sending a letter or by completing a written form, an oral request, such as by a telephone call or by an in-person request, or by an electronic request, such as by e-mail or through a web-site request. According to an embodiment of the invention, security procedures may be used to ensure that sponsor funded stored value cards are properly requested. Other methods for requesting creation of a sponsor funded stored value card may also be used.
  • [0024]
    An issuer creates an account associated with a sponsor funded stored value card at step 20. The account associated with a sponsor funded stored value card holds the funds designated by the sponsor. A sponsor may add funds at step 22. According to an embodiment of the invention, a sponsor may add funds to the account as desired, such as by transferring funds from another account, while a cardholder may not add to the account.
  • [0025]
    A sponsor fund stored value card may be issued to a cardholder at step 24. Issuing a stored value card may be performed in a number of known manners. These manners include mailing a stored value card to a cardholder, or presenting a stored value card to the cardholder in person, such as at the financial institution or at the sponsor's place of business. According to an embodiment of the invention, a card issuing mechanism may be available to issue a stored value card as directed. Other methods for issuing stored value cards may also be used.
  • [0026]
    A stored value card may be given a unique account number which may be embossed on the front of the card along with a card-holder's name. A stored value card may also be affiliated with a credit network (e.g. VISA™, MasterCard, etc.). An identification indicia of the credit network may be displayed on the front of the stored value card, as well as an identification indicia of an issuer and/or sponsor. According to another embodiment of the invention, a stored value card may be given a unique reference number which may associated with the stored value card but is not located on the card. A sponsor may be given either the account number or the reference number for use in depositing funds into a stored value card account. Use of a reference number may allow for deposits into a different stored value card without receiving updated records, such as if the original stored value card is lost or stolen.
  • [0027]
    A cardholder may activate a stored value card at step 26. According to an embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may activate a stored value card by communicating with an issuer, such as by telephone, internet connection, or other method of communication. According to an embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may activate a stored value card at an ATM terminal. Other methods of activating a stored value card may also be used.
  • [0028]
    At step 28, an issuer may be informed that a cardholder has received a stored value card. According to an embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may inform an issuer of receipt of a stored value card simultaneously with activating a stored value card. Other methods of informing an issuer of receipt of a stored value card may also be used.
  • [0029]
    An issuer may inform a sponsor that a stored value card has been received by a cardholder at step 30. Informing a sponsor may occur in writing, or an electronic medium, such as e-mail or the internet. Other methods of informing sponsors may also be used.
  • [0030]
    A cardholder may access funds at step 32. Accessing funds may include withdrawing funds as cash at an ATM terminal, making a POS purchase at a merchant transferring the funds to another account, or withdrawing funds at a financial institution. Other methods of accessing funds may also be used.
  • [0031]
    At a predetermined time, a sponsor may determine whether to add additional funds to a sponsor funded stored value card at step 34. Funds may be added periodically, such as in the case of payroll payments, or may be added sporadically, such as in the case of expense payments. A sponsor may direct an issuer to fund an account as directed at step 22. According to an embodiment of the invention, a sponsor may send a transmission, such as a file to a processing module 110, to the issuer identifying the amount of funds to be deposited into a stored value account. A sponsor may then send funds (e.g. send a check, wire funds, etc.) to the issuer for deposit in the specific stored value account. According to another embodiment of the invention, one transmission may be sent to an issuer to deposit funds in a stored value card account. A transmission, such as a transmission made through the Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) used by financial institutions, may contain a routing number and transit number for an issuer and a stored value account number. By way of example, a transmission comprises a routing number and transit number for the issuer, and a stored value account number. The transmission is sent through the ACH. The transmission is rejected, as it is not a demand deposit account number, and is sent to system 100, such as to processing module 110. Based on the transmission, system 100 credits the appropriate stored value account with the appropriate amount of funds. If no funding of the stored value card is to take place, the store value card may be terminated at step 36.
  • [0032]
    [0032]FIG. 2 illustrates a schematic system to support a sponsor funded stored value card according to an embodiment of the invention. System 100 comprises a processing module 110, a database module 120, a sponsor input/output (I/O) module 130, an issuer I/O module 140, and a cardholder transaction module 150.
  • [0033]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, processing module 110 may act to coordinate information flow in system 100 and, according to an embodiment of the invention, may be a central processing unit (CPU) of a computer. According to an embodiment of the invention, database module 120 may comprise an account database module 122, a balance database module 124, a transaction database module 126, and a sponsor database module 128. An account database module 122 may be responsible for storing information related to accounts associated with each stored purchase card, such as an account number and a stored value card number. Other information may also be stored in an account database module 122.
  • [0034]
    Balance database module 124 may be responsible for storing information about the account balance. Processing module 110 may instruct balance database module 124 to be updated to increase or decrease the amount of funds in a stored value card account. Funds may be increased if a sponsor seeks to deposit funds into an account. Funds may be decreased if a sponsor removes funds, or if a cardholder withdraws funds. Other information may also be stored in balance database module 124.
  • [0035]
    Transaction database module 126 may be responsible for storing information related to stored value card accounts and stored value card transactions. According to an embodiment of the invention, transaction account module 126 may maintain records of every deposit and withdrawal associated with a stored value card account. A list of the transactions may be available to a sponsor, and/or to a cardholder. A list of transactions may be available in a hard copy, e.g., a print-out, or in a soft-copy, e.g., an electronic medium such as a spreadsheet file. Other information may also be stored in transaction database module 126.
  • [0036]
    Sponsor database module 128 may be responsible for storing information about various sponsors, including the number of stored value cards funded by a sponsor, the status of the stored value cards, and the status of the sponsor. According to an embodiment of the invention, a sponsor database module 128 may maintain records of information about each sponsor, the stored value cards associated with each sponsor, and any instructions associated with each sponsor. Other information may also be stored in sponsor database module 128.
  • [0037]
    Sponsor Input/Output (I/O) module 130 may permit a sponsor to connect with processing module 110, and transmit and receive information. According to an embodiment of the invention, a sponsor may use sponsor I/O module 130 to request information about one or more stored value card accounts. Processing module 110 may access account database module 122, retrieve the requested information, and transmit the information to a sponsor via sponsor I/O module 130. A sponsor may also transmit a request for a new stored value card via sponsor I/O module 130. Other information may also be transmitted and/or requested. Sponsor I/O module 130 may be a direct network connection, such as a dedicated line between a sponsor and an issuer, or an indirect connection such as through the internet (world wide web) and a browser. Other methods of connection may also be used.
  • [0038]
    Issuer I/O module 140 may permit an issuer to connect with processing module 110, and transmit and receive information. According to an embodiment of the invention, an issuer may use issuer I/O module 140 to direct processing module 110 to create accounts, add funds, and retrieve various requested information, such as account balances, transactions, and the status of a stored value card. Other information may also be transmitted and retrieved by issuer I/O module 140.
  • [0039]
    Cardholder transaction module 150 may permit a cardholder to access funds from a stored value card account. According to an embodiment of the invention, cardholder transaction module 150 may comprise a transaction I/O module 152 and a cardholder I/O module 154. Transaction I/O module 152 may be connected to a financial network 160, which may include ATM terminals 162, POS terminals 164, and financial institutions 166. A cardholder may use ATM terminals 162 to make cash withdrawals from the stored value card. According to an embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may use ATM terminals 162 to check the balance of the stored value card account. Cardholders may make purchases at merchants with POS terminals 164, as with a credit card or debit card. A cardholder may withdraw funds at a financial institution 164, such as a bank, from a stored value card by withdrawing funds in the form of cash, or transferring funds to an account in the financial institution. Other methods of performing cardholder transactions may also be used.
  • [0040]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may be able to access funds via a cardholder I/O module 154. A cardholder I/O module 154 may connect to transaction I/O module 152, enabling a cardholder access to a stored value card account. A cardholder I/O module 154 may be a browser which connects to transaction I/O module 152 via the internet. Cardholder I/O module 154 may also comprise a connection by telephone, e-mail or other methods of connection to transaction I/O module 152. According to an embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may check the balance of the stored value card account, may make purchases, such as through electronic commerce or other commerce using the stored value account, or may transfer funds from the stored value card account to another account. As with the stored value card, a cardholder may be unable to deposit funds into the account via cardholder I/O module 154. According to another embodiment of the invention, a cardholder may be able to deposit funds into the account via cardholder I/O module 154. Other access by cardholder I/O module 160 may also occur.
  • [0041]
    As noted previously, a sponsor funded stored value card may provide for partnering an issuer with a company desiring to streamline payment processing using a prefunded stored value card. According to an embodiment of the invention, a stored value card may look like a credit card to an ordinary observer, but with no credit line, and may function like a debit card, but with no associated cardholder deposit account. Such a stored value card issued by a sponsoring entity may reduce handling costs of checks and paper processing for both an issuer and a recipient.
  • [0042]
    For an issuer, a stored value card may provide revenue through transaction fees paid by merchants and cardholders, as well as the revenue generated from the “float” of funds held by an issuer on behalf of a sponsor company and cardholder. According to an embodiment of the invention, interest may be earned on the balance of funds in a stored value card account. Interest may be awarded to a sponsor of the stored value card, or may be awarded to a cardholder. For a sponsor, processing costs associated with issuance, reconciliation, and replacement of lost or damaged checks may be greatly reduced or eliminated. For applications involving relocation and business expenses and the like for employees or contractors, a stored value card may provide sponsors a convenient method for monitoring expenses. For the cardholder, a stored value card may provide immediate access to funds without the need to manage and safeguard a large sum of cash. A stored value card may also obviate the need for a cardholder to write multiple checks and perform reconciliation of a personal checking account. For cardholders not having a checking account, a stored value card may save the cost of check cashing fees, which can be up to five percent or more.
  • [0043]
    Sponsor funded stored value accounts may be used to support a variety of applications, including: (1) payroll applications; (2) business expense reimbursement and prepaid business expense applications; (3) relocation applications; (4) private label applications; (5) government benefit applications; (6) insurance applications; (7) consumer promotion applications; (8) incentive/reward applications; and (9) university loan and assistance programs.
  • [0044]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, a (1) payroll program application may allow a company to issue employees a stored value card associated with a payroll, where a stored value card can be periodically funded (e.g., each payday).
  • [0045]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, a (2) business expense reimbursement and prepaid business expense application allows a company to reimburse an employee for actual expenses. A sponsor company may also prepay an employee for expected expenses by providing a funded stored value card. Similarly, a (3) relocation program application may allow a sponsor company to reimburse actual expenses by issuing a sponsor funded stored value card, or to prepay expected expenses associated with employee relocation with a sponsor funded stored value card.
  • [0046]
    A (4) private label application may allow companies to provide employees and customers with a card used only for purchases of products and services at a specified merchant. According to an embodiment of the invention, a sponsor may limit where a stored value card may be used. By way of example only, a sponsor company involved in construction may provide employees with a sponsor funded stored value card that may only be used at hardware stores and lumberyards.
  • [0047]
    A (5) government benefits application may allow government entities to distribute benefits, refunds and government-sponsored loans using the card. According to an embodiment of the invention, a person receiving social security benefits may be issued a stored value card sponsored by the U.S. government. The stored value card may be funded monthly with a predetermined amount of the benefit to be received. The beneficiary cardholder may withdraw funds using the stored value card. Other government benefits may also be used.
  • [0048]
    An (6) insurance program may permit an insurance company to pay claimants and beneficiaries through a stored value card instead of a conventional check. In this application, a card may be funded one time or periodically, depending on the insurance agreement and circumstances of the claim.
  • [0049]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, a (7) consumer promotion programs application may allow companies to enhance customer loyalty or attract new customers by providing a prepaid stored value card. By way of example only, a stored value card may be sent to a cardholder as a coupon to entice purchase of selected merchandise, or as a rebate for a previous purchase of selected merchandise.
  • [0050]
    A (8) incentive/reward application may allow a company to reward employees, agents and customers for their sales/service performance or consumer behavior. A stored value card may be funded with incentives, rewards and commissions on a one-time or continual basis. By way of example only, a sponsor company may issue and fund a stored value card to a salesperson who reaches certain sales goals.
  • [0051]
    A (9) university assistance program may allow universities and educational assistance organizations, such as government loan processors and entities to distribute educational proceeds using the card, e.g. tuition reimbursement. A person receiving educational funds (e.g., loans, grants, scholarships, etc.) may be issued a stored value card sponsored by the U.S. government and/or the university. According to an embodiment of the invention, a person may receive loans from the U.S. government for purposes of attending classes at a university. These funds may cover tuition, books, room and board, lab supplies, and other costs associated with college. The stored value card may be funded monthly with a predetermined amount of the money to be received. The student cardholder may withdraw funds using the stored value card. This embodiment will be described in greater detail below.
  • [0052]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, a person may receive loans from the U.S. government for purposes of attending classes at a university. These funds may cover tuition, books, room and board, lab supplies, and other costs associated with college. Often, funds are sent directly to the university or college, and applied to the costs associated directly with the university or college, such as tuition and room and board. Additional funds are then provided to the student in the form of a stored value card of the present invention. The stored value card may then be used over the course of the semester to pay for costs associated with school. Further, the same card may be used by the student throughout their time in college, with additional funds being added to the card as appropriate. These additional funds may be added when additional loans, grants or scholarships have been received, when money has been earned by the student, such as through work-study programs, employment with the university, or other earnings, or by a parent or guardian adding funds. Government educational loans are generally provided every semester and paid to the university or college at the beginning of the semester. Thus, the university may fund the stored value card each semesters with the funds left after payment of tuition and/or room and board expenses for the student.
  • [0053]
    By way of an exemplary embodiment, a student may live in a dormitory at a university, where tuition is $10,000.00 a semester and room and board costs are $8,000.00 a semester. That student may receive student loans from the U.S. government in the amount of $15,000.00 a semester, as well as a scholarship for $5,000.00 a semester. The funds from the student loans and the scholarship are paid directly to the university, and cover the tuition and room and board costs for the student. The university issues a stored value card for $2,000.00 (the difference between the $20,000.00 in loans and scholarships and the $18,000.00 in tuition and room and board costs) at the beginning of the first semester. The student then uses the stored value card to make other purchases, such as text books, lab supplies, and the like. According to an embodiment of the invention, the educational institution may limit the purchase ability of the stored value card, such as to merchants associated with educational supplies and services (e.g., books, lab supplies, etc.) or to other merchants consistent with the purpose for which the educational funds were provided to the student. At the beginning of the second semester, when the bills from funds from the student loan and the scholarship are received, the university applies those funds to the students tuition and room and board payments, and deposits the residual funds into the students stored value account. This may then be continued for as long as the student is enrolled at the university.
  • [0054]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, records of transactions associated with the stored value card may be kept. The student card holder may be permitted access to keep track of expenditures and ensure that the appropriate debits and credits to the stored value card have been made. Transactions may be provided in a written statement, such as statement mailed out monthly, or may be provided to the student electronically, such as a monthly email containing transaction information or providing internet access, such as to a website having a listing of the transactions. According to an embodiment of the invention, information about the transactions is only made available to the student cardholder. Other exemplary embodiments may provide for others to have access to transactions performed using the stored value card, such as the university or school, the U.S. government (e.g., the loan originator, the Internal Revenue Service, etc.), the student cardholder's parents, or others that may have an interest in the transactions. By way of an exemplary embodiment of the invention, information about transactions may include identifying the source of funding (e.g., scholarships, grants, loans, work study programs, etc.) and the place of a transaction (e.g., book store, grocery store, apartment, etc.) to aid in determining compliance with applicable statutes, regulations and contractual obligations.
  • [0055]
    [0055]FIGS. 3A and 3B illustrates a process flow for implementation of a stored value card in an educational environment according to an embodiment of the invention. At step 310, a stored value card program is sold to an educational institution, such as a university. At step 315, a program profile for the educational institution is created. At step 320, the program profile is submitted for implementation of the program. Submission may be in the form of a facsimile, mail or other delivery of a hard copy, or electronic submission, such as email. At step 325, the program profile is reviewed to determine completeness. If not complete, the submission is returned to step 15 for completion of the program profile. If complete, the program profile is forwarded to a business department. At step 330, the business department executes a contract with the educational institution. A program implementation department is notified about the execution of the contract at step 335, and the program implementation department inputs the educational institution's profile data into the implementation system at step 40. Additional information may also be added into the educational institution profile within the implementation system, such as bank, product and sales data.
  • [0056]
    At step 345, the educational institution is notified that the program has been set up and receives the necessary information for implementation of the program. This information may include bank, product, and sales data. At step 350, the educational institution introduces the stored value card program to its students. At step 355, one or more students enroll in the stored value card program. The one or more enrollment forms are returned at step 360, and an account, account number, and stored value card is set up for each student at step 365. At step 370, the stored value card is created and issued to the student. Issuance may include mailing or otherwise delivering the card to the student. At step 375, the student activates the card. Activation may include signing the card and notifying the issuer that the card has been received. At step 380, the educational institution receives information about the students' accounts and stored value cards. This data permits the educational institution to deposit funds into the stored value card accounts, such as through direct deposit. Other manners of implementing a stored value card with an educational institution may also be used.
  • [0057]
    According to another embodiment of the invention, a stored value card in an educational setting may be converted into credit card. By way of example, after a student has finished attending a college or university, such as graduated, the student may be provided with an offer to convert the stored value card used for education assistance into a credit card. Conversion may be accomplished by extending an offer to convert the stored value card into a credit card. The student cardholder may decline the offer to convert, in which case the process may terminate. If the student elects to convert the stored value card to a credit card, additional data may be obtained from the student, in order to complete a credit card application. The credit card application data may then be forwarded to a credit decision office. The credit decision office may make inquiries to a credit bureau, for example, to obtain a credit report on the student and make a decision whether to approve the credit card application. The results of the application for a credit card are forwarded to the student. If the application for a credit card has been accepted, the stored value account is converted into a credit card account, and the stored value card may then be used as a credit card. Any funds in the stored value card account at the time of the conversion to a credit card may be returned to the student, or may be applied to future purchases using the credit card. Other process for converting a stored value card into a credit card may also be used. Such processes are found in U.S. patent application Ser. No. 09/102,044, originally filed on Jun. 22, 1998, the contents of which are incorporated herein by reference, and which is owned by the assignee of the present application.
  • [0058]
    Combinations of various applications may also be applied to a sponsor funded stored value card. By way of example, a sponsor company which sells gasoline may provide customers that meet certain predetermined criteria (e.g., have purchased twelve tanks of gasoline) a sponsor funded stored value card which may be used to purchase items, such as gasoline or oil, at the sponsor company, or affiliated stores. By way of another example, a government entity may pay tax refunds by issuing a stored value card. Other applications may also be available for a stored value card of the present invention.
  • [0059]
    According to another embodiment of the invention, a computer usable medium having computer readable program code embodied therein for a sponsor funded stored value card may be provided. For example, the computer usable medium may comprise a CD ROM, a floppy disk, a hard disk, or any other computer usable medium. One or more of the modules of system 100 may comprise computer readable program code that is provided on the computer usable mediums such that when the computer usable medium is installed on a computer system, those modules cause the system to perform the functions described.
  • [0060]
    According to an embodiment of the invention, processing module 110, database module 120, account database module 122, balance database module 124, transaction database module 126, sponsor database module 128, sponsor I/O module 130, issuer I/O module 140, cardholder transaction module 150, transaction I/O module 152, and cardholder I/O module 154 may comprise computer readable code that, when installed on a computer, perform the functions described below. Also, only some of the modules may be provided in computer readable code.
  • [0061]
    According to a specific embodiment of the present invention, system 100 may comprise components of a software system. System 100 may operate on a network and be connected to other systems sharing a common database or databases. Other hardware arrangements may also be provided.
