Man making online purchase with credit card

Discover Card Now Accepted for LionCash+ Deposits

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Penn Staters know about the convenience and security of LionCash+, the online, prepaid flexible account that makes on-and off-campus purchases safe and easy. Now, there's another option for making online deposits to your student's LionCash+ account: the Discover Card.

It's easy to add LionCash+ to the Penn State id+ card using a Discover, Visa, or MasterCard debit or credit card. Your student can use LionCash+ at more than 300 locations both on and off campus statewide and enjoy its many benefits:

It gives your student buying power. LionCash+ is accepted at most restaurants, shops, and stores on and around Penn State campuses, including all 23 Penn State Bookstore locations. Whether your student is buying books* for the semester, grabbing a bite to eat, making photocopies, or scoring a football jersey, LionCash+ lets them do it all with their id+ card.

It's safe. Your student's photo id+ card with LionCash+ is safer than carrying cash and more secure than non-photo debit or credit cards. If your student reports their id+ card lost or stolen, their funds are secure and available immediately when they get their replacement card.

It saves money. LionCash+ users can receive discounts at many participating locations every time they use LionCash+, including a 10 percent discount at most on-campus Food Services locations.

It's convenient. Using their Access Account User ID and password, students can check their balance, view their transaction history, deactivate a lost or stolen card, or make a deposit using a Discover, Visa, or MasterCard debit or credit card.

It's easy. Anyone - including family and friends - can make an online deposit from anywhere, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It's a great gift for any Penn Stater!

It's protected. Active accounts remain open and carry forward from semester to semester and from year to year.
