      Green dot makes loading a card so difficult its not worth the effort.The automated telephone system is a joke.When working with people's money they should be more accessible to consumer needs.

      I've this service in the past and to be honest, you're better off with a bank account. This takes a fee monthly from you which makes it hard to have money available when you're ready to pay a bill, make a purchase online or retail, or pay a monthly fee for a service that offers such a thing. I went to their web page

      now the company stops taking a monthly fee if you can make 30 purchases in a month and or have a balance of $1,000. Um no thank you at all. Once I got off the crappy service and opened my own bank account I couldn't have been anymore happier than I am at the moment.
