Boosted me 74 points after first payment
RockinMoroccan Cardholder

Hi, this review is the truth and nothing but the truth for people like me that are trying to rebuild their credit, I started rebuilding my credit when I had 300 points I went back and paid off a lot of my balances that I had until my points went up to 500, I applied for this credit card and got approved because no other credit card would accept me, once approved they send you an e-mail which you have to reply back with your driver license and social security number just so they can identify you and send out your card, for me I had to send it two times and send them an email asking them if they received it because they took a little bit too long, other than that once I received my credit card right away I paid the $50 fee that was deducted right away and just waited until credit karma posters it up and so I can see any changes, in the email that they send you you have two links one link is for your credit card transactions and summary and the other link is to pay your balance with your debit card they are extremely easy and you can make it as a shortcut and your phone so you can reach it quick trust me it is easy, I only put Netflix Hulu and prime video for this credit card for the future so it can stay low and today I checked credit karma and it hit credit karma and they gave me 74 points up so now I am 574 points, so that is my experience with green. I really hope you have the same experience and nothing less and if you have any questions I will definitely answer you but this is the truth and nothing but the truth guys just be patient be patient be patient and do what they ask and just be patient, the 1-800 number that they send you with the emails does work if it did not work for some of these people in these reviews it did work and it does work and I live in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, thank you guys and I hope you guys will succeed in making your credit better !

Easy to use
OhioLisa Cardholder

I've had my card nearly a year.

The biggest issue I had was paying my payment via my bank to Green Dot.  The payment never made it to Green Dot and the Bank could not find it after it left them.  Took 6 months to fix the missing payment.

Green Dot customer service was great.

I now make my payment via Green Dots website, no more bank for the payment.

From the above reviews this "Good way to stat seems moot since the above have had nothing but trouble.. Anonymous gave no real review nor payment history and trouble as the above stated. I'll stay away from this card, very far away!

I doubt very much you're a cardholder and your review is the only positive one here that I've read, so far.

What was your credit score when you opened it?

I think the 5 star reviews are from employees or owners!

I've had the card a month I loaded my 200.00 deposit on my card paid my 50.00 annual fee. I then made a charge of 32.00 I paid the 32.00 off in full a day before the amount was due and my score went up 73 points. I'll pay my next charge this month I hope my score goes up 73 points again. Customer Service is not really friendly and the wait is extremely long but as far as the card it has filled it's purpose.

Up 44 points automatically with approval
Ashlyn34 Cardholder

I applied and got approved right away. I placed a 550 deposit and card was mailed to me within a week or less. My credit score jumped 44 points before I even received the card in the mail! I set up my online account and paid the annual fee balance right away so the payment would clear and my full balance will be available. I just made my first purchase in the amount of $200 dollars and will pay that balance off asap to see how much more my credit score increases. Great card so far! If you need to rebuild your credit, this is a no brainer folks!
