New payment methods for donors
recently DCI has changed the way donors get paid by assigning donors with a prepaid VISA card from citibank. there is not a single citibank in town and now donors have to worry about being nickled and dimed whenver they want to purchase something or visit an ATM. donors should have the right to decide how they get paid not the plasma center. we choose to have our arms stuck once or twice a week sometimes by people with questionable training so they should take the risk of having cash on-hand at the center. the claim of citibank prepaid cards being easier is total bs. i know the issue of surcharges being applied to access your OWN money is nothing new, but to us long-time donors it is freakin' ridiculous. we have the right to decline being issued these crappy cards. give us cash.
