How QuyanaCARD Works
QuyanaCARD is a Reloadable Prepaid Debit Card


  • QuyanaCARD Prepaid Mastercard® is a prepaid debit card account which does not require a traditional checking account.
  • You can load money on the card account by setting up Direct Deposit from sources like Social Security, Unemployment, Wages, PFD, Native Corp Dividend, and more! You can also load your card at any participating store. (Kobuk, Ambler, Shungnak, Kiana, Noorvik, Selawik, Buckland, Nome, Emmonak, Akiachak, Nunam Iqua, and Togiak each have participating stores; contact us to find one near you.)
  • You can only spend the money you load on to QuyanaCARD, so you can’t go “over the limit”, as this is not a credit card product.

You can use QuyanaCARD everywhere Debit Mastercard is accepted.

All the Reasons You Want One:


  • Stop waiting on your check(s) in the mail.
  • With this program, you may never pay check cashing fees again.*
  • For bills you can pay online with your QuyanaCARD, you may never need to pay for money orders, stamps and envelopes again.

QuyanaCARD was created by Alaska Natives, for all of Alaska.

We understand the challenges of living and banking in rural Alaska, and created QuyanaCARD to make things a little easier.  

QuyanaCARD is a prepaid debit card that works just like a bank debit card, but without the need for a checking account. It can be loaded with funds with Direct Deposit of your wages, unemployment, Native Corp. dividend, social security benefits, etc. and can be used anywhere Debit Mastercard® is accepted.

QuyanaCARD can be used just like a bank debit card to pay your cell phone bill, purchase hunting supplies over the internet or get cash from ATM’s** worldwide.

Quyana, Quyanna, Quyanaqpak?

Why call it “QuyanaCARD“?

Although Quyana is spelled many different ways across rural Alaska, it has one common meaning – Thank You. During our name selection process, we realized that we are thankful for so many things about Alaska:

  • The beauty of the land,
  • The berries and animals that put food on our tables,
  • Our culture, and
  • The opportunity we have to help our friends and relatives in rural Alaska that struggle with basic banking needs.
We wanted to choose a word that every Alaska Native would recognize – from Metlakatla to Barrow. A word that would remind each of us to be thankful for all these things every time we use our card. The word Quyana was a perfect fit.

So, with great respect to this special area of Alaska in which we live and to all of you, we say – Quyana!
