What are Stored Value Accounts

Stored Value Accounts are a convenient way to purchase goods and services at select locations. They are a prepaid debit account administered by the University.

The Quick Cash account is assigned when the student agrees to the terms and conditions of the Cardholder Agreement.

The BU Bucks account is assigned automatically and is used at Bradley dining locations on campus.

The meal plan pages have more information on stored value accounts.

Deposits can be made on My Account using your BUnetID and password, on the Mobile app, in person at the Cashiers windows in Swords Hall, or at the Value Transfer station (VTS) located in the Library. The VTS machine takes cash deposits only.

Stored Value Accounts are not available for cash withdrawal. Funds remain on your account until the student graduates or leaves the University.

Please refer to the terms and conditions for Quick Cash as stated in the Cardholder Agreement for specific details of the account.
