Russell Simmons' Visa RushCard Hits $2 Billion Mark

Hip Hop mogul-turned-philanthropist, Russel Simmons’ latest endeavor, the debt-reducing Visa RushCard, recently hit the two billion dollar deposit mark in a time when more Americans than ever can use the extra help. Simmons’ RushCard is a prepaid Visa Card, similar to a debit card that allows people with bad credit to have the same opportunities while building up good credit.
"I'm personally very happy that RushCard is benefiting and empowering people exactly as it was intended," said Simmons.

The card allows members to track their transactions online while including debt reducing strategies and restriction to prevent over drafting or over use.
"In America today, no one should be left out or kept out of having access to the American Dream and financial services which a bank account or credit card provides to others. The fact that we have already helped our members manage $2 billion in transactions proves that RushCard is instrumental in providing access to those services that hundreds of thousands of people may not otherwise have.”
