          The Gold Card connects you with family and friends

          With the Gold Card, it’s easy to keep in touch. That’s because it works like a rechargeable phone card and earns you Phone Time1 with every qualifying transaction2.

          Earn Phone Time

          Every time you use your Gold Card to send a qualifying transaction, you earn U.S. or international phone time - up to 10 minutes U.S. or up to 3 minutes international*+.

          We load the phone time right onto your Card.

          Add Phone Time at special rates

          Your Gold Card acts as a rechargeable phone card and you can add minutes at special rates.

          There are no connection or hidden fees associated with the Card.

          We’ll give you up to 30 bonus minutes with recharges of $30 or more.

          Recharge using cash at participating Western Union locations.
