Mountie Bounty

Overview:

Mountie Bounty is a convenient debit plan that allows you to place dollar amounts on your Mountaineer Card for later use. This service offers security for the card-bearer and the ability to add value to the card at any time at WVU or from home. There are no setup fees and no minimum balances are required.

When the card is swiped through a reader, like those used for credit cards, the account number on the card’s magnetic stripe is read and the purchase amount is deducted from the balance in your pre-paid account. This service lets you use your funds only for the purposes you choose. Balances are carried forward each year, but be sure to read our debit regulations.
