How did my transaction go through even though I didn’t have enough money on the card?

In certain instances, because of the way transactions are processed, your transaction could have gone through even though you did not have enough money on your card. As a result, your balance would be negative. Your next reload will be first used to cover the negative balance, and any remaining funds will be available for use. Please refer to your Cardholder Agreement for more information.

If you lose your card or believe it to be stolen, click here to report it lost/stolen.

What happens when I return merchandise?

Merchants are responsible for crediting your card. Store return policies may vary. If a merchant cancels a transaction before it is posted, it may take up to 10 days for the authorization hold to be removed from your card. During this time, you will not have access to these funds.

If you receive a credit on your card and you did not make the original purchase using your card, your card will be suspended from use, and we will request additional documentation to reinstate the card.

Back to Top


What do I do with the card after I've spent the money?

Your card is a reloadable prepaid card, and you can continue to add money to it and use it. Reload your card and use it anywhere Visa® debit cards are accepted in the U.S.

There are many easy ways to add money to your card. Reload fees apply. Visit the Add Money page to learn more.

Back to Top


I bought something for X amount of dollars, but I was only charged $1. Why?

Many merchants will make sure that your card is valid by holding a $1.00 until they ship the merchandise. Then, they'll charge the full amount.

Back to Top


I bought something online and the transaction was declined even though I had enough money. Why?

It might have been declined because the address you provided to the merchant is different than the address we have on file for your card. If you need to update your address, click here.

Back to Top


I bought something for X dollars, but more than X dollars is being held on my card. Why?

There are certain types of merchants that sell goods or services where the final amount they will charge to your card is unknown at the time they first authorize your card. Typical merchants in this category include rental car companies, hotels, and internet service providers, where the final purchase amount is not known up front. Therefore, your card may be authorized or have money held for more than the actual amount of the purchase until the final transaction is complete, meaning those "authorized dollars" are not available for you to spend elsewhere. The timeframe the money is held depends on the transaction type.

Fees


What are the fees for my card?

How do I get my monthly charge waived?

How to Dispute a Transaction

What do I do if I have a question or think there is an error on my card?

It’s important to note that merchant names or locations for your transactions may not look familiar. Many merchants use their corporate or headquarters information instead of the particular store where you made the purchase. There may also be a delay in the posted date of the transaction. These are normal business practices. If the amount and date of the purchase are accurate, you may use that as your validation of the charge.

In case of errors or questions about your card, write to us at Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Customer Care, PO Box 5100 Pasadena, CA 91117. Write to us as soon as you can if you think an error has occurred in your card account. We must allow you to report an error until 60 days after the earlier of: (i) the date you electronically accessed your account, provided the error could be viewed in the electronic history; or (ii) the date we sent the FIRST written history on which the error appeared. You may request a written history of your transactions at any time by writing us at Written History Request, PO Box 5100 Pasadena, CA 91117. When notifying us, you will need to tell us: (i) your name and card number; (ii) why you believe there is an error, and the dollar amount involved; and (iii) approximately when the error took place.

We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, we may take up to 45 days to investigate. If we need more time, we credit your card within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not provisionally credit the card. We also may not credit the card if the error does not represent a qualifying dispute, as identified in the Disputes with Merchants section of the Cardholder Agreement. Click here for more details. We will let you know the results of our investigation within three business days of completing it. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation.

You agree that any unauthorized use does not include use by a person to whom you have given authority to use the card or PIN and that you will be liable for all such uses by such person. For example, if you have given your card or card information to another person to use, such as a friend or relative, you are responsible for that person’s transactions with your card, and if you have given your card information to a merchant for a transaction, you have given authority to that merchant to debit the card for that transaction.

How do I report a scam?

If you think you may have been scammed, please contact your local police department. You can also submit a fraud claim here. If you are attempting to report an error for a recent purchase you do not recognize in your transaction history, please click here.

How to Reload

How can I reload or add money to my card?

You can reload your Green Dot card at thousands of participating locations nationwide, by enrolling in direct deposit, or by depositing a check using your smartphone camera with the Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card mobile app. Reload fees and limits apply. Not available in all states or stores. To learn more about all the ways to add money to your card, visit the Add Money page.

Find your nearest reload location at attheregister.com/locations.

Direct Deposit

When you enroll in direct deposit, you could get paid up to 2 days early! Subject to your payment provider’s process and timing.

Many employers and benefits providers notify the bank of direct deposits before the “official” payday. If we receive sufficient early notice, we will deposit your pay on the card early.* Ask your employer when they submit their direct deposit information to the bank. It is important to note that often employers or benefit providers may not submit early every pay period depending on the day of the week, month and holidays. This means you will not always get your deposit as early every pay period.

*Payroll, government benefits, and child support are the only deposits that qualify for early access to your money.

How do I begin using direct deposit?

The process is easy! Follow these simple steps:

  1. Ask your payroll or benefits provider if they offer direct deposit. If they do, just give them your direct deposit and bank routing number to enroll.
  2. Get your bank routing and direct deposit account numbers, or text DD to 37267 to have your routing and direct deposit account numbers delivered to your mobile phone (carrier message and data rates apply). Once you've submitted your form, you will normally start receiving your pay on your card within 1 to 2 pay periods.

TIP: Ask your payor how long it will take for them to set up your direct deposit. If it takes longer than expected to receive your first direct deposit to your card, check back with your payroll or benefits office. Green Dot does not have your enrollment status information.

Back to Top


Do I have to direct deposit my entire paycheck or benefits check? How much of my pay can I elect for direct deposit?

With the exception of certain federal government benefit payments, you can elect to have as much or as little of your paycheck or benefits payment deposited to your Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card as you like. The choice is completely yours, and you can cancel or change the amount of your direct deposit at any time.

If you enroll in direct deposit for federal government benefits (such as Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Veterans Benefits, or Federal Civil Service), the entire amount of your benefit payment must be deposited to your Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card. You can cancel the direct deposit of your federal government benefits at any time, but you cannot change the amount of your federal benefits direct deposit.

Back to Top


How can I be sure the direct deposit was made?

You can track your transactions using the Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card mobile app. Download the app for free from the App Store or on Google Play to get started.

You can also sign up for mobile text alerts to automatically receive direct deposit and daily balance alerts. Carrier message and data rates apply.

Back to Top


My direct deposit was supposed to be deposited today, but I don't see it on my available balance. What happened?

The exact time of day that your paycheck is deposited onto your card might vary from payday to payday. If you haven’t received a direct deposit that you are expecting, it’s because we haven’t received the payment instructions from your employer or benefits provider.

If you are concerned about the status of your direct deposit, follow these steps:

  1. Contact your payor to verify that the direct deposit was sent. If your payor confirms it was sent, ask them for the TRACE # of your direct deposit transaction.
  2. Once you have the TRACE #, call the automated Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card Support Line at 1-888-285-4169 and we will investigate the transaction. NOTE: If you have recently reported your card lost or stolen, please make sure to tell the Customer Support Specialist when you call.
  3. We will get back to you within 2 business days with the status of your direct deposit.
If you enrolled in direct deposit for federal benefits, you should contact the agency that administers your benefit.

Back to Top


How do I cancel my direct deposit?

To cancel your direct deposit, you must contact your employer or the payor of your benefits. They will tell you how to cancel the service. When cancelling direct deposit, please allow up to 2 pay periods for the request to be processed. Cancelling direct deposit will in no way impact the use of your Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card.

Back to Top


What happens when I use my Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card at a restaurant?

Restaurants will verify if you have enough money on your card for the dining bill, plus an estimated tip. This amount may be held for up to 7 days or until the actual transaction is posted to your card. The funds are held and unavailable for other purchases.

Back to Top


Can I use my card to rent a car?

Your Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card may be used to rent a car, but rental car companies "authorize" (have money held) for much more money than the actual cost of the rental car. The reason is that the rental car company won't know if they need to charge you for additional expenses like gas, car damage, or extra days until you return the vehicle. These authorized funds will be held and unavailable for you to spend until the final transaction is posted to your statement. This means that you might not have access to these funds for as long as 90 days. To avoid problems when you rent, our advice is to first call the rental car company and ask them what their policy is regarding the use of prepaid debit cards.

Back to Top


What happens when I use my Turbo℠ Prepaid Visa® Card to reserve or pay for a hotel bill?

Hotels put a hold on the amount of your estimated bill, making that amount unavailable for other purchases. When you check out, the hold will take up to 10 days to be removed.

Back to Top


What if I return merchandise?

Merchants are responsible for crediting your card. Store return policies may vary. If a merchant cancels a transaction before it is posted, it may take up to 10 days for the authorization hold to be removed from your card. During this time, you will not have access to these funds.

If you receive a credit on your card and you did not make the original purchase using your card, your card will be suspended from use, and we will request additional documentation to reinstate the card.

Back to Top


What are pending transactions?

Pending transactions are transactions in which your card may be authorized or have money held for more than the actual amount of the purchase until the final transaction is complete - meaning that those authorized dollars are not available for you to spend elsewhere.

Back to Top


What are posted transactions?

Posted transactions are purchases, bill payments, and credits that have been processed by the merchant's bank. In most cases, it takes about a day or two for the transaction amount to be deducted or credited to your account after a transaction is made. When the transaction has finished processing, the status changes from "pending" to "posted" on your transaction history.

If your payment is declined due to insufficient funds, then you will need to resubmit the payment request once you have loaded sufficient funds onto the card.

If you schedule a payment prior to 1:00 pm ET today with a debit date of today, we will attempt to process the payment immediately, or on the next business day if today is not a business day. If there are not enough funds to cover the payment, you will see a message that the payment was declined.

If you have scheduled a payment for a future date, we will attempt to authorize the payment on that future date. If there are not enough funds to cover the payment by 1:00 pm ET on that date, then the bill payment will fail and we will send you a notification by email. You should check your e-mail to ensure that your scheduled future payments are made.

You must provide a valid email address when you enroll for online bill pay. Email is the only means by which we communicate payment failure notifications.
