One of the benefits of the US Unlocked virtual payment card when you’re living outside of the U.S is taking advantage of U.S sales. Between Black Friday, Labor Day, July 4th, Valentine’s Day, and the Christmas Season, holiday sales can mean pretty significant savings on a range of items. For those in the market for a big ticket item like a laptop or those favorite pair of sneakers, waiting for the sales to come about can be a savvy move. You want to be prepared for when the time comes so making sure you have a US Unlocked account with money loaded is very important because it can sometime take time for approvals.

Signing Up for a US Unlocked Account

The signing up process is typically fairly straight forward. Click on the Get Your Card anywhere on the US Unlocked website.

USU signup

As part of your signup process, you’ll have to verify your email address and also add some KYC proof if you plan on loading more than $500, usually passport or drivers license and then you’ll be taken to your dashboard.

Loading your Account

Log into your account on the US Unlocked web site and choose the amount you wish to load and click ‘Load My Account’. Now choose your preferred payment method and proceed to complete the payment.
