Take care when loading funds on to your MEA Visa Card
One very important fact often overlooked by MEA Card users relates to the maximum amount the MEA card can hold. The amount is $4,999, not $5,000. Common sense says the regulators should round it up but no, $4,999 it is. Any attempt to load more will result in a failed transfer. If the card already has an unspent balance from a previous transfer then care needs to be taken not to transfer an amount that brings the new balance over $4,999.
