I have been using Greendot for years and I love the simplicity of it. I started using it because I got tired of all the fees my bank was charging me for the smallest things...down to a $2 service fee just to talk to a teller. I have my paycheck and tax refunds direct deposited to my account and have never had a problem. The $5.95 fee has bee waived for so long I don't remember when I last paid it. I've looked into other pre paid cards and the fees are just crazy. I can't see leaving Greendot unless something goes really wrong.

My company put $250 on a Green Dot prepaid visa so an employee would have a card for travel expenses. We were never able to get the card to work and 2 years later still trying to get our money back. Green Dot charges $5.95 month in management fees so they are slowly eating away the cash on the card. When we call the 866-795-7597 number we get at least 3 "customer service reps" (and I use the term very loosley) who bounce us around on hold with no resolution. This company is a complete fraud!!!
