NO EMV CHIP? Non existent Cust. Service
TCaps Cardholder

Can't get through to anyone live at any number posted. NO EMV CHIP has me very concerned. Wanted to increase balance, but doesn't seem safe without chip. Going to get a secured card through a bigger bank and then cancel this one. Hopefully deposit funds will be returned timely. Too many recent bad reviews.

Easy to get, terrible customer service
Tim3000 Cardholder

I applied and got this card when it was originally Berkshire and i got it fairly easy. No credit pull. Put down $500. You have to pay your due date around 10 days early and payments take that long to hit your availble credit. Got it when my scores hit rock bottom around 530 and gave me a 52 point boost in one month. Pay on time and it will do what it says for rebuilding your credit. Customer service is terrible now that the company was brought out by Green dot. It was great when it was owned by Berkshire. My experience with Green dot came about when my CC expired July 31st I was on a project outside of my home state and needed the card sent to me in California 7 customer service reps , 5 supervisors and 1 hour and half conversation with the fraud department and 4 lost credit cards sent to the wrong address (my home address despite me confirming each and every time the address in California. So customer service, its a joke. 2 stars because it did give me a boost, but after that it's been all down hill. Even added the mailing address to my credit report in California, despite it being a temporary address. Terrible

I had this card for months and kept it paid up. They cancelled my account and it was in good standing and after I contacted the company for my security deposit return it was 2 months before they returned it and the security deposit check from the company bounced. I had the check deposit straight to my checking account and the bank made me aware it was returned to me and my checking account went into the negative. I reported this company to the BBB and the feds. Consumer beware. They even erased all the monthly payments and credit I earned through this card.

Getting Rid of It
Milaj77 Cardholder

It was good for the year that I had it until Green Dot took it over.  They doubled the minimum payment and hacked on extra fees for late payments.  Once I pay it off, I am cancelling it.  Green Dot has never been a good company for anyone.
