Can I transfer money I owe my friend who is out of town to his Account Now card?

Mar 29, 2016
You can only transfer funds directly if you have an AccountNow prepaid card, too. In that case, it’s free and you can send up to $300/day ($500 if you upgrade to Gold and participate in Direct Deposit). If you don’t have an AccountNow card, you could try PayPal or Venmo to repay your friend. Hope this helps.

You can find all of that info by enrolling in online account management. To start, please go to: . For your convenience, he’s a quick breakdown of how to find your routing number:

Login to your prepaid account and click the 'Add Money' tab.
Choose either “Paycheck” or “Benefits,” depending on the type of funds you plan to receive.
If you chose 'Paycheck', your routing number will be displayed on the resulting direct deposit form, which you can either print or email to yourself. If you chose 'Benefits', your routing and account number will be displayed on the webpage.

Hope this helps. more

Have had account now since 2012 and have not had any issues! Only ONE time where I received a direct deposit and I wasn't able to access my funds for a few hours but otherwise no complaints.

I used this card for one month and realized it wasn't for me. The monthly fee is quite high and is not advertised well on the card. Don't get fooled into thinking that this is an easy card (or free card) to use. You will surely be annoyed. On the plus side, the card does make it quite easy to perform all necessary transactions.

I will never ever ever use this card again. I have been having this card for the pass six months and I actually enjoyed having it especially the fact that I get paid two days early with my direct deposit. However it all changed, I used this card to check into an hotel, and they placed a $150 dollar hold my account for incidentals etc. , which is fine every hotel does it. When I checked out of course my final bill was $0.00 because i prepaid for my entire I stay. Well upon a week after checking out the hold was still there so I can the hotel to more

This card is great for my needs. Yes there is a fee but most prepaids have one. The greatest benefit of this card is the ability to transact ACH debits (AKA, Online Checking Account payments) with the routing number and account number. There is no other prepaid card which has this feature. There is a fee of $2.50 for each ACH transaction which is high but it is worth it when you need to pay a bill ASAP and need the 1 to 2 day floating period. For example, I get paid on Fridays and needed to pay a utility on Thursday. I did not have quite enough to cover more

According to AccountNow's website, the time that the money will be available differs depending on the way they are added to your prepaid card account. Electronic payments and direct deposits will be available the same business day they are received by AccountNow while cash deposits made through money transfer services generally will be available instantly. However, you can get in touch with customer service at 877.984.7465 and ask for more information.

This is a good credit card if you need a short term way to buy things or pay bills if you don't have a bank account or are waiting for direct deposit or your account to verified. All in all, I am satisfied, but I think if you're comparing this kind of card to a typical credit card then you'll be disappointed. Either way, the convenience for times when you're in a pinch is unique to this service. Another good thing about this card is that it's a good for people who may not have the best credit in the world.

I got this card to be able to be paid for work that I do from home. I no longer use this card because I no longer need it, due to direct deposit. I had to wait for my funds to become available and ready for use, usually 1 day.

Terrible customer service. They are holding on to my check that the deposited into the wrong account for over two weeks. I still don't have my money and they won't send it back to my employer. These people really fucking suck! Worst customer service ever. Do not use they are complete trash. Negative five stars.

this card is really helpful and easy to use and load, there is a option for direct deposit which is really helpful, I think a pretty low transaction fee. Customer service has always been really good and helpful, all and all I love this prepaid card. Ithink this is a really good option for people who use prepaid cards.

Last week, I decided to see what all of the fuss was about concerning prepaid cards. I started by looking into the GreenDot prepaid card and was very impressed that its minimum monthly deposit and ATM policies allowed it to basically be a free checking account since by all accounts prepaid cards are rising in popularity because consumers are looking to escape the new checking account fees. Unfortunately, I am not as impressed with this Account Now Gold Prepaid Card. For starters, you have to deposit at least $2,500 each month to avoid a monthly fee of nearly ten bucks (in contrast to only $1,000 with GreenDot). Also, while the more

I don't like this card. I wish I had kept the card I had before. I wasn't charged for anything and didn't need to keep a certain amount on my card.
