Green Dot Premier Account
There are many benefits to being a Green Dot premier member. The VIP membership is only $3 a month and comes with additional features that aren’t available with a regular account. If you haven’t yet acquired a Green Dot prepaid debit card, then now is a great time to get one.
Here are the advantages of having a premier membership over a regular one:
• You can get refunds of all ATM withdrawal fees, which are charged whenever a card owner makes a withdrawal. The $2.50 is refunded back to you no matter how many times you make withdrawals.
• If your card ever becomes lost or stolen, you will receive an Emergency Card Replacement. It’s sent through FedEx anywhere in the US.
• No more waiting time for customer service. If you need assistance or have any questions, you will receive priority service immediately! Your calls will go to the front of the line.
Are these benefits worth the $3 a month fee? Well, the VIP membership will pay for itself when you have just two ATM withdrawal fees refunded. If you make a lot of trips to the ATM, then you can potentially save a lot of money. The added security and customer service benefits are also great to have.
The great thing about Green Dot premier cards is that they can be used just about anywhere. Whether you end up with a Visa or MasterCard, you’ll be able to shop just about anywhere. The number of retailers who accept these prepaid debit cards is growing. With the power of a Visa or MasterCard logo, your card will be accepted just about anywhere.
There are thousands and thousands of ATM machines that accept these cards. You can install a MoneyPass ATM app on your iPhone or Android to help you locate the nearest ATM machine. If you’re a premier member, you won’t have to worry about any fees!
Just so you know, the premier cards are NOT the same as gift cards! Gift cards aren’t personalized. They can only be used once. They cannot be used to receive cash out of an ATM machine. With THIS card, you can do pretty much everything you could do with a regular, bank-issued debit card, except you won’t have to worry about penalties or overdraft fees.
Have bad credit? Don’t worry, you won’t be subject to a credit check. In order to receive your personalized premier card, you’ll have to provide your name, social security number, DOB, and address. The information will be kept on record.
Right now, Green Dot is giving a $10 bonus for members who sign up for the direct deposit feature! This feature is absolutely free. You can arrange for your paycheck to be automatically deposited into your account!
