How do I enroll for this $150 option? There is a two step process to enroll for the $150 Jacket Express Board Plan transfer.
  1. You will need to elect that you wish to have $150 transferred from your Jacket Express Board Plan. To do this, you will go to bw.edu/resources/id and click on the BW Stinger Card icon. Enter the information listed and hit submit.

    This first step will need to be completed at the beginning of each semester; details and deadlines will be announced during the previous semester. A special schedule of events will be posted for Fall 2013 with the late roll out of this program.
  2. You must enter your banking information (bank routing number and account number) in the BW Stinger Bucks portal so that we can transfer the $150 to your checking account, which will be linked to the BW Stinger Visa Debit Card.

    This second step will only need to be completed once.
