Ratings and Reviews
Works but not for me
I tried this out for a couple of weeks and it wasn’t bad. It does what it’s suppose to do. You do get 5% cash back on qualified purchases but unless you run your card a lot, I don’t think it’s worth it considering the $9.95 monthly membership fee. I knocked it down 2 stars because support is awful! I had questions on getting set up for mobile check deposit and they were very vague and could never give me a direct answer. They kept repeating the same thing each time I reached out via email and told me to refer to their FAQ because apparently that is where I can find all my answers. I scoured through their FAQs from the beginning and nothing in there would help answer my questions. When I asked them to direct me to where I can find that information they said they actually don’t have instructions on how to get set up with direct deposit. It turns out it just takes some time before you are given access (I discovered this on my own). If they would have answered my initial question of “does this take some time to go though or should I be given immediate access?” It would’ve saved a ton of back and forth! I decided to just stick with my current bank at this point and am closing my green dot account. I could see it work for budgeting if you can stomach the monthly fee.

Thank you for your feedback. In order to qualify to use the Mobile Check Deposit feature you must a Direct Deposit in any amount or reload $150 in the last 60 days. Please note, that your initial load and using the Send Money Feature do not count towards the $150 requirement. We hope this information was helpful.

Green Dot is AWESOME!!!
I’ve had Green Dot for over 9 years and I love it. I get my direct deposit on it and as long as you get over $1000 direct deposit or make a certain amount of purchases the monthly fee is waived. I like the fact how we have that option. I have had issues with getting a hold of customer service but the good out weight the bad. That is why I kept it at 5 stars. I recently had someone get my card information and charger over $100 before I was able to catch on. I was having a hard time talking to a representative but was able to submit an form online. Green Dot was so good in returning all my money and issuing me a new card. Over all I trust Green Dot, my boyfriend and sister use it as well. I love how you are able to send money to people who have green dot and even pay bills. They will send a check on your behalf to whatever bill company you are trying to pay. Money is taken out right away and pends for a few days just like it would for a regular bank. I have NEVER had any other probs like everyone else is claiming. If I have cash one me and need to add funds I like how I can go to 7 eleven, Walmart, etc to load it for a small fee. Overall I am please with Green Dot and how it’s worked for me. I def recommend this to anyone. I have the regular gold one.
I lobe green dot bank app and the card it was super easy to sign up and took just a week to start getting my checks on my card. ASAP direct deposit allows you to email yourself or employer your account and routing number. With one simple click I was able to get it setup up and that very next check loaded on to my card. I didn’t even have to wait for my card to get here to set up direct deposit it just allowed me to see my info and then my card arrived fast. It took two seconds to register my card on the app so I could use it anywhere. I don’t like carrying cash so I always opt for a card. I choose this card because of how easy it is to use. It is compatible with Apple Pay which is very handy for me personally. Earn cash back for purchases I even earned cash back for paying my Netflix bill. The best card I have had. I get paid before anyone else. As soon as they get it you get it. I use my card for everything and in doing so waived my monthly fee. Great customer service and always you to earn 3% interest for moving money into your savings which is easy to do and free. Very happy I decided to get this card.
