I applied for this card 2 months ago. Was approved and was told my card would be at my house in 7-10 business days. I called and the very rude customer service people told me that I "should just wait to see if it comes." I called and cancelled that card and was told another would be on the way in 7-10 days. That was 2 and a half weeks ago. I've gotten a statement and owe a bill for a card I've yet to receive. I was also told if I cancel it will take 7 weeks to get my initial deposit back. This is an awful company with horrible customer service from each and every employee. I urge anyone that wants to get a credit card, go to someone else this is the absolute worst company to deal with.

Horrible company to deal with

I had this card for 5 months before Green Dot Bank suspended my account because I refused to carry a balance from month to month. Then they took almost 5 months to return my $1000 security deposit.

That’s the point of having a credit card to have a balance how else do you expect to build credit with that card!

You probably spending over your 30% of that $1000 which is $300 a month my rule of thumb is use $280 per month and pay cash or use a debit card for everything else. You have recurring payments like light bill, water bill and cellphone bill use it for that and build your credit
