Automatic loading and parental controls are some of the benefits of the Navy Federal Visa Buxx, according to the Visa Debit Processing Service. Additional benefits include a text messaging feature and purchase security.
The Navy Federal Visa Buxx is easy to use for both parents and their teens, according to Navy Federal Credit Union. The parent simply loads money onto the card by phone or online, and the student uses the card anywhere Visa cards are accepted. Students can also add funds to their card using the Visa ReadyLink service. Both the parent and the teen can track how the money is spent and check balances.
The automatic load feature is a convenient service that helps parents deposit a pre-selected amount to their teen's card, states the Visa Debit Processing Service. This feature deducts the amount from the parents Navy Federal debit or credit card and deposits it into the teen's Visa Buxx card once weekly, monthly or whenever the parent deems fit.
Parents and teens can sign up for the text messaging feature to receive messages on the card's activity, reports the Visa Debit Processing Service. This feature updates the parent and the teen on low balances, value load and the daily available balance.
