Swipe Reloading In Stores




Oftentimes, reloading prepaid cards in stores can be a pain because of the daily limits.

Walmart teamed up with several prepaid reload networks to introduce “Rapid Reload” where reloading a card would cost as much as $3.74.

I bolded Green Dot Prepaid Cards because GoBank is part of that category and the best news, is going to Walmart is free.

Deposit Cash Into GoBank At Walmart With Rapid Reload

It is bad news that one can no longer load GoBank online anymore. However, free swipe reloads are a good thing if you live near a Walmart and have the American Express Bluebird as you can then load both cards in one trip for free. I am eagerly awaiting for other stores to do free swipe reloads besides Walmart as there is none in New York City.

I have also bolded the MyVanilla because you could load $500 on the card every day. If the fee is $3.74 it would be cheaper than buying Vanilla Reloads. This is assuming you are able to buy the Visa/Mastercards free/discounted like I have been able to do.

  • Could you tell us how you are able to get Visa/MC for free or discounted?

    • There’s two methods that I do to buy them discounted. One way that I can publicly share is to buy them from a consignment shop. The other way I won’t be able to share.

      The shop that I buy the gift cards from have $100 gift card mall cards for $95. I avoid paying the activation fee as well as receive a 5% discount.

      • Thanks. Do consignment shops sell visa? Very interesting.

        Would you share the other method privately?

        • You have to be lucky to find a consignment shop that sells gift cards. I just ran into them when I received an email from them after purchasing a gift card through them over eBay.

          As for the second question, at this time no, I would not share it privately as I would work towards posting it publicly.

      • Will it be cheaper just use visa/mc GC straighter for MO, instead of loading to another prepaid card for a fee (there isn’t that many free loading prepaid card)? So if you can buy visa/mc GC for free then you can say that you have a gold mine for miles and points without depending on any type of prepaid cards, is that correct?

  • Do you know(or have you tested)which of the above prepaid reloadable cards are free to be reload at walmart?(we know that blue bird, gobank and Green Dot don’t charge the $3.74 loading fee)
    Thanks.

    • Sorry, I don’t. I only have a very limited number of cards on that list (Bluebird, Paypal, and My Vanilla), but I have not tried Paypal or My Vanilla Debit. I don’t go to Walmart too often as there aren’t any stores in NYC.
