SIOUX FALLS, S.D., April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MetaBank®, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meta Financial Group, Inc.® (NASDAQ: CASH) ("Meta") and a leader in delivering innovative payment and banking solutions to partners throughout the country, today announced a four-year partnership extension with AAA.

Today, MetaBank payments offerings, which include a travel card and a gift card, are available in AAA branches across the U.S. Under this new agreement, MetaBank and AAA will work to enhance the offerings to members, adding features to chip-enabled, reloadable prepaid cards like online purchase and loading capabilities, and card personalization, as well as upgrading the mobile application to include Touch ID and remote deposit capture.
