Tuxedo has won two prestigious awards at the Prepaid365 Awards announced on 30th May 2014.

Voters found Tuxedo to be the outright winner in

  • Best Youth Prepaid Card category for its work on the STA ISIC Cashcard,
  • Best Basic Banking Prepaid Card category for eccount money

The Prepaid365 Awards are run by the UK’s leading independent prepaid card comparison site, and aim to recognise excellence among prepaid card providers, with winners of consumer categories being chosen by consumers. This year’s awards were the biggest to date, with 158 entries across 22 award categories, and a voter audience in excess of 1,500,000 consumers.

John Sharman, CEO, said: “It is a great honour for us to accept these awards. The Prepaid365 Awards are well respected within the industry and voted for by our customers. It is fantastic to see Tuxedo’s continual commitment to improvement and innovation in the development of payment technology recognised among our peers; and by the very people who use our services.

Amit Sharma, CEO and Senior Prepaid Consultant at Prepaid365, the UK’s Prepaid Card Portal, said: “As the UK’s first single international ID and travel card, I am delighted to see the STA ISIC Cashcard receive consumer recognition at this year’s awards. With cashback rewards, SMS account management, POS currency conversion and more, the STA ISIC card builds significantly, in substance and style, over the standalone prepaid travel cards offered by STA in previous years.

“Since its launch in late 2012, the eccount money has undergone continual development to deliver premium banking that delivers greater value than most traditional basic bank accounts. With consumer rewards, cashback and the ability to manage all activity online or via the mobile app for smartphones, eccount money is a worthy winner of this consumer recognition.”
