Our Best Answer - What is a Flexcard?


UCSB’s FlexCard is a Visa procurement card issued by U.S. Bank to UCSB employees who have authority to buy goods and services on behalf of their departments. The FlexCard is issued to an individual, not to a department, and the card and account number cannot be used by anyone other than the Cardholder. Payment liability rests with the University, not the Cardholder. The FlexCard is used primarily for low value purchasing and current commodity restrictions apply.
