A Green dot card is a really cool and good thing. Basically it provides benefits like.
#1. You don’t need to go to the banks anymore or much at all
#2. You can shop online
#3. When bank is closed, you can still put money on your card
#4. It keeps your information more safe, if someone steals it (if you have $40 on it) You wont loose your life savings, ya know?
Basically. To get started with them, just go into a CVS or a wallgreens and look at all the cards. There are many to choose from. There is mastercard, amex, visa, all kinds. I would recommend mastercard. So bring the card up to the teller and keep in mind you need to put some money on it. Now everytime you go to put some money on it, you need one of these little cards for sale called a moneypak. So. (YOU BUY THE MASTERCARD FOR YOU TO KEEP= AND EVERYTIME YOU WANT TO PUT MONEY ON IT YOU NEED TO BUY ANOTHER LITTLE PLASTIC THING CALLED A MONEY PACK!!!)
So, walk up to the register and tell her or him that you want to put $50 on this money pack. Then in 15 mins, scratch off the back of the moneypak (IT LOOKS LIKE A CALLING CARD) and go to http://www.moneypak.com and type in your MASTERCARD number, then under it, your MONEYPAK number, then your done!
