About VIP Preferred

What is a VIP Preferred Card?

A VIP Preferred Card is your access to fast and easy check cashing services at gaming establishments across the country. Once enrolled, you can simply present your VIP Preferred Card and ID to a casino cashier and obtain your cash – quickly, easily and hassle-free. VIP Preferred also offers you the convenience of cashing checks electronically, also known as e-checks, without having to bring your checkbook.

How does my 8-day limit work?

Your limit applies to personal cash access with both paper and electronic checks (e-checks). Your cash access privileges will be honored as long as you do not exceed your assigned limit and your account remains in good standing. Each paper check or e-check you cash will be considered an “open item.” Each open item will be deducted from your available limit. After an 8 day period the dollar amount of each paper check or e-check transaction that clears the bank will be added back to your available limit for future use.

Using Your VIP Preferred Card

How do I cash a check with a VIP Preferred Card?

After you have been issued your VIP Preferred Card, you may quickly cash personal checks from any account in your name by providing the cashier with your VIP Preferred Card, ID and your check. In just a few seconds you will have your cash and be on your way.

How do I cash an electronic check (e-check)?

If you wish to process an e-check transaction, simply present the cashier with your VIP Preferred Card and your ID. Tell the cashier you wish to cash an e-check along with the dollar amount you wish to cash. In seconds a receipt will print out verifying the amount you requested. Simply sign the receipt authorizing Global Payments to have your bank debit your designated checking account (the bank account you enrolled with) in the form of an electronic funds transfer (EFT). You will be provided with a copy of the signed receipt to reconcile your checkbook - the same as if you had written and cashed a paper check.

How long does it take for an e-check to settle (be debited from my bank account)?

E-check transactions are debited from your designated bank account in approximately 2 business days.

How do I cash checks at the ATM?

You can cash electronic checks at any ATM that displays our ATM Cash @dvantage logo. You can also find participating locations on our VIP Preferred Network Directory.

The process is easy. Just swipe or insert your VIP Preferred Card at the ATM and follow the instructions on the screen. You will be prompted to enter your secure PIN number. You can withdraw a maximum of $500 per transaction, up to your available cash access limit.

What is a Choice4 check and how do I cash one?

Choice 4 is a service available at select gaming locations that allows for delayed settlement of e-check transactions. They are cashed just like an e-check, except you will be given the option to select a 7, 14, 21 or 28 calendar-day settlement term. In cases where the settlement date falls on a weekend or banking holiday, the transaction will settle the next banking day. Please see our VIP Preferred Network Directory for participating locations. (Not all settlement terms are available at all casinos. Ask your casino cashier for details).
