Can I get my direct deposit early?

Photo of Card H.
May 27, 2016
Direct deposit enables you to get your money sooner than you would with a paper check, which is where “early” comes into play, but there is no expedited direct deposit service. You can learn more about how direct deposit works from the following articles:

And more information about adding direct deposit to your AccountNow prepaid account can be found here:

How can I transfer money from one card to another?

Jan 14, 2016
For starters, it’s important to note that you can only do so if both cards are from AccountNow. Assuming you’re squared away on that front, first sign in to: .Then select the "Share Money" option and enter the recipient’s account number in the "Target Card" field. After that, just input the amount you wish to transfer and complete the transaction.

Keep in mind that you can only transfer $300 per day and $3,000 per calendar month. You can find out more by calling AccountNow customer service at: 877-984-7465 . Hope this helps.

Can I load with a Green Dot reload card?

Jul 21, 2016
Unfortunately not, if you’re talking about a MoneyPak reload card.
As of January 31, 2015, MoneyPak was replaced by Reload @ the Register, which is available at CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, Walgreens and more. For more information, please visit: .

It’s also important to mention that you cannot transfer funds from a Green Dot prepaid card to an AccountNow prepaid card. You can only do so if both cards are from AccountNow. Hope this helps!

account now is great for me to use to make a separate paypal account as well as an ebay account. I feel safer having one of these linked online instead of my actual visa card.I really love this card. I was worried when I began working online that maybe I would not be able to receive payment because I don't have a bank account. After some research, I learned that I could use this card to get payments made to me. The card was mailed to me very, very quickly.
The only think I do not like about this card is the dollar fee for each transaction. It really adds more

This place is a rip off. I had $50 on my card. I went to the atm to get $20 it declined for some reason. I had no choice but to buy gas at the pump of $8. I then called account now to see why I couldnt get $20 from atm. They told me that since I used my card at the pump that is the reason my money on hold. Wait a min now I tried getting $20 at the atm BEFORE I got my gas soooo how is that possible???? No one can give me an answer. I had to wait 48 hrs just to get my more

This the worst card I've ever used..I had my account hacked. .it took a week for them to recover my money.. they cancelled my card and said I'd have a new card in 5-7 business days ..but took them three weeks to get my new card to me..then I had no way of accessing my options to transfer advice to anyone trying to find a good card..don't choose these ppl...

Terrible customer service. My card expired 4/30 so I expected a new one before then. I called on 4/22 to make sure, they said one was mailed. On 4/29. I called again, they said I needed to order a new one. I did, I told them to expedite it because I need it. I went to take out enough money until the new card arrived BUT they didn't tell me that they deactivated my old card which wasn't expired yet!!! I called today to find out where my card was which again I paid 25$ to have expedited which they told me would be here between 5/3 and 5/5. I more

This card would be better if you use it to unlock a door. My daughter is having so many issues with trying to get her money but from a bogus scam. She has waiting for account now replace money that was sent to her card. This has been since March. I've never seen so much unprofessional customer service in my life. I pray my daughter issues get resolved quickly. Better service....happier customers

This company seemed to be legitimately good when I first got the card. But just in the last few months that I've had to deal with customer service, it's terrible! I will never use their services again. First, my account was hacked into. Someone had a nice shopping spree at Macy's. I had to get a new card because of it. I physically had my old card. I never lost it. Someone was just able to hack into the system and get my card number to manually enter at Macy's. Now, a month and a half later, I lost the card and called to let them know. I just wanted more

This is the worse card ever put on the market. Can't understand anything the customer service representatives are saying. Took over an hour for the card to be loaded and then got horrible service. I do not and will not ever recommend this card to anyone. The gold card is a complete rip off! Get any other prepaid card but this one. If you had to rate horrible, it would get 5 stars!

There is nothing that I like about this card. Your information is not correct-there is a $9.99 monthly service charge. They 'lose' your direct deposit information regularly. Their customer service is in India and they are less than helpful and you pay$1.00 for each call that you make to them. There is no one who can help you with transaction complaints, missing money etc. this is a horrible card with terrible customer service.

I have had this card three month in this Shorthe 3 mmonths they have deactivate c my cars twice....Now I have a pending direct deposit that just poof just disappeared. .... Their customers Service is rude.... I work customer service and I would never treat my customers the way the do... The most thing I am upset about is I checked my card earlier and it told me I had a pending deposit now it just tell me the previous balance with NO PENDING DIRECT DEPOSIT. My question is where in the hell did it go?

No way no how. Signature transaction fee? PIN transaction fee? Yea, I'll pass and stick to my Serve card with no fees. Also Walmart Money card only charges $3 a month. Account now indeed has no monthly fees but how many of you will use the card to make a purchase where your PIN is needed or signature needed for a purchase? Each and every time they will charge you to use the card $1 add that up and you will go way past the $3 monthly fee. These types prey on the poor. Don't be a victim.

The account now visa card was perfect for me to use for online purchases. I don’t like using my regular credit card online to avoid fraud issues so I picked myself up one of these. It was great for me to use to make a separate paypal account as well as an ebay account. I feel safer having one of these linked online instead of my actual visa card.

The card was mailed to me very, very quickly.

The only think I do not like about this card is the dollar fee for each transaction. It really adds up. usually I just make one transaction and use cash back to get all my cash off the card,

I know of 8 different people plus myself who used Account Now for their tax refund because of the early delivery of the funds. Account Now accepted our tax returns and after about 4 days they suddenly blocked the cards. One person was in the middle of shopping when her card got blocked. They could not give an explanation as to why it was blocked only that documents were needed to confirm identity. We have sent these people our whole life documents and still no release of the funds. After they got our documents they proceeded to say they closed the account and sent the money back to the IRS more

I'm having the same problem right now. But with mine they sent a card and I never received it. So they asked for my info and I sent it three times and they still tell me they don't have it wait 24 hours. It has been two weeks now and counting.

I can remember many months ago when I got my accountnow prepaid visa. I was happy to have a card that I could charge if I needed to go on a trip for hotels, car rentals and the like. The card allowed me to be more versatile with my spending. Even while in grocery stores I felt special while having my account now prepaid card. I have used the card when I travel and in helping me send money to my daughter. The account now prepaid card is a great way to get paid.

I have not had any problems witht this card. I applied online and received the card in about a week. I was originally going to get this for my son so I could put money on it every month instead of having to go to the bank and either physically hand it to him or go to his bank and put it in his bank account. But then I decided to try it out for myself before hand. I like the card but I ended up going with a different card for my son that didn't have any fees. I didn't want him to have to put any of his more

I have this card currently. I wasn't sure about really getting the card at first because I had never had a credit card at the point. After searching around for a while I came to a the conclusion that I should first try out these prepaid cards instead of the usually classic credit card. All of my friends had told me that they have had the regular credit cards and regret getting them. Mostly because of the debt that they gained, but with this I feel more comfortable. I also had no credit when I first got this card and because I never really had an issue with it I more

I have this card. I have never had any issues with it. The balance is always what is expected.
However I do not believe their site to login is very secure. All the require is your last name, your social and your zip code. I prefer using a username and password. I think it is easier for someone to hack into your information and get into your credit card account with just that.
The huge issue I have with this card is, it's more expensive than lots of other prepaid card. Is costs almost $10.00 a month to keep active. Wow! Most cards are only $3-4.00. The fees to cancel and more

My father started me off with this Prepaid Visa Credit Card for my birthday about a month ago. It is the best possible solution for our money problems. Ever since my parents were separated, it was hard for my dad to get money to me. He would have to transfer money into my bank account and then I would have to go to my bank and take it out. Now, my dad just reloads my AccountNow card. It’s as simple as 1-2-3. It takes all the hassle out of ATMs and banks accounts for someone who is a young student like myself. For just a small start up fee, you more

I was given a Prepaid Visa card as a present and I must say it has been fantastic! No hassles, no worries, no payments. I've used my card everywhere without a hassle: online shopping, gas stations, shopping malls. And what is great is that the balance is easy to figure out, either by a quick phone call to an automated register, or by checking online. Oh, and I forgot to mention, the card doesn't expire for like 6 years, so not a worry about being screwed over. Great for road trips and travel and college! A big name company which offers support and security without any hassles of bills.

I had a great experience with the Account Now Pre-Paid Visa card. I was having some problems with my credit, so I needed to use a prepaid credit card. It was easy to use - I could reload it through direct deposit or at a large selection of locations. There is no monthly fee; only the $4.95 initial activation fee. If you cancel your Account Now Pre-Paid card account, you are only eligible to apply for an Account Now Pre-Paid Visa card one more time. The customer service department is very pleasant. They really make it easy to do whatever you have to do quickly. I had fewer hassles with more

I signed up for the AccountNow Pre-Paid Visa about a month ago and received it in the mail a little less than a week later. Even though I have good credit, I wanted a card that would curb my spending shopping online. I thought this would help give me some financial discipline. I like that this card is exactly what you make of it. Not having to worry about my credit card bill every month is a huge sigh of relief for me. The customer service is very easy and I can handle everything on the AccountNow website. The excessive fees are annoying because I also have to factor in more

I really like my Account Now card. It is easy to load and easy to use with minimal fees. I have had several different types of cards over they years and the Account now card is very simple to use as well as other people can send me money though it. I work on line doing data entry work and I need an easy access account that I can post many small transactions to over the month when they come in for my various jobs.
this card has made that a lot easier to do. The card also accepts western Union, Money gram and green-dot refill payments.. which is really more

I always get a kick out of credit card and prepaid card branding. Prepaid cards are often used by people who can’t get approved for a traditional checking account, so it makes perfect sense that there is a prepaid card called the AccountNow Prepaid Visa. The name alone seems to satisfy a major need for the target audience. But simply being able to get a prepaid card isn’t your only consideration, you should strive to minimize costs too. (Another reason people get prepaid cards is that they want a cheaper checking alternative in the face of new bank fees).

Does the Account Now Prepaid Card allow you to minimize fees? That more
