With a variety of spending choices, the Multi Merchant Prepaid Card is a truly unique way to say thank you that gives recipients the freedom to get exactly what they want. Think of it as 150 prepaid cards wrapped into one.

“NAR’s REALTOR Benefits® Program gives its NAR members access to a wide array of benefits and business tools, to help them gain a competitive edge, save time and money and grow their business,” stated Bob Goldberg, Senior Vice President, Sales Marketing, Business Development Strategic Investments, Professional Development, and Conventions.  “This innovative prepaid card was created exclusively for our members, and we feel it provides them with a great way to say thank you, support the valuable message and importance of home ownership and stand out amongst their peers.”

The Multi Merchant Prepaid Card was made possible by leveraging InteliSpend’s patented process called DirectSpend.® This advanced option gives clients and partners the ability to decide where a card can be spent. It opens up opportunities you can’t get any other way, and puts a really different perspective on prepaid solutions.
