Direct deposit of a refund onto a prepaid debit card is free, eliminates the need to pay for check cashing services and will arrive faster than a paper check.

Two attractive reloadable prepaid card options for tax refunds are the Green Dot prepaid debit card and the Walmart MoneyCard® prepaid debit card. Both are available as either personalized MasterCard or Visa cards, which means cardholders can shop everywhere Debit MasterCard or Visa debit cards are accepted and your money is protected if your card is lost or stolen.

Both the Walmart MoneyCard® and Green Dot card offer the added convenience of a no-fee nationwide network of 22,000 MoneyPass® ATMs. Free online bill pay is available with the Green Dot card and Walmart MoneyCard® Plus, Specialty and Preferred cards. Cardholders can enjoy the convenience of the card secure in the knowledge there’s no danger of overdraft or penalty fees. Plus, there’s never a credit check or minimum balance requirement to worry about. All Walmart MoneyCard® prepaid debit cards include the following features at no extra charge:

• Mobile Web registration

• Check cashing reloads

• Account alerts

• Gas discounts

• Pharmacy discounts.

Green Dot cards can be purchased in-store at more than 60,000 retail locations nationwide, including Walgreens, 7-Eleven, CVS/pharmacy, Dollar Tree, RadioShack, Rite Aid, Kmart and Kroger. Green Dot cards can also be purchased online from the comfort of your own home.
