Phoenix Cash, Food Dollars, Meal Plan Count and Meal Dollars (both are part of the meal/board plan) and Printing Dollars. Separate from these on campus accounts, you can set up a Wells Fargo College Checking Account and make your Phoenix Card your Wells Fargo ATM card as well.
The Phoenix Cash account can be used in all sales locations on campus and can also be used at participating off campus locations. The Food Dollars, Meal Dollars, and Meal Plan accounts can only be used at on campus dining locations. The balance on Meal Dollars must be spent by the end of spring semester or it expires. Printing Dollars is a preset amount added to your Phoenix Card for use in the printers. Once your Printing Dollars is depleted you can use Phoenix Cash.
The Wells Fargo College Checking Account will give you the capability to withdraw funds from your Wells Fargo checking account at ATMs and make debit (PIN based) transactions at off-campus merchant locations (i.e. gas stations, grocery stores and any merchant that accepts debit transactions requiring PIN entry). Funds on the Wells Fargo account and Phoenix Cash cannot be transferred to each other.
Only the Phoenix Cash account is accepted at participating off campus locations. Visit our website at www.elon.edu/phoenixcard for a current list of participating merchants. Meal Plan Dollars and Food Dollars are not accepted off campus.
Only the Meal Dollars account is “use it or lose it”. Any balance at the end of the spring semester on the Meal Dollars account expires. A fixed amount is deposited to the Meal Dollars account at the beginning of each semester based on the meal plan in which you are enrolled. This account can be used at any dining location on campus.
The retail combo meals that come with the All Access +14 and All Access +7 meals plans must be used each week (beginning on Wednesday morning and ending on Tuesday night) or they will expire.
Always tell the cashier which account (Meal Plan Count, Meal Dollars, Food Dollars or Phoenix Cash) you want to use.
No. If your Phoenix Card is also your Wells Fargo ATM card, you can use your Phoenix Card to access your Wells Fargo checking account funds at an ATM.
The Wells Fargo ATM/debit feature is for use at bank ATM’s and for retail debit purchases anywhere you type a PIN (i.e. grocery stores, gas stations, etc.) The Phoenix Cash account is for use on campus and at participating off campus locations.
