October 20, 2012
Blackhawk Network and Univision announced an agreement making the Univision MasterCard Prepaid Card (Tarjeta Prepagada Univision MasterCard) available in select grocery outlets in California and Texas.
“We are delighted to be working with Blackhawk Network, a leader in the prepaid space,” said Scott Scovel, vice president and general manager, Univision Direct, Univision Communications Inc. “Their great network, coupled with our unique product and powerful media reach, will enable us to bring even more value and convenience to the Hispanic community.”
This will mark the first time that the Univision MasterCard Prepaid Card will be available for purchase at retail. Customers can now easily purchase the card off the store rack during their grocery shopping. Until now, the cards were only made available for purchase online and by phone.
“Univision is one of the most reputable companies providing exceptional services and products to the Hispanic community, and we are honored to distribute its card through our extensive network of retail partnerships,” said Talbott Roche, president, Blackhawk Network. “This new relationship is another example of the growth we are witnessing in the prepaid category as consumers are better understanding the benefits of using prepaid products to take control of their finances, while making their money go farther.”
