Review by

The Green Dot Prepaid MasterCard card is ideal for persons having little or no credit. There's no interest charges and members incur little fees even as they receive the full purchasing power MasterCard provides.

Interested persons can get one of these for a $9.95 application fee deducted once funds are loaded into the card account. A member may load funds in a number of ways including direct deposit. Each deposit attracts a $4.95 loading fee. A $4.95 monthly maintenance fee is deducted from the card account. Members receive weekly balance updates in their email.

This prepaid card is issued by Synovus Bank. Applicants have guaranteed approval with no credit, employment verification, and bank account checks.


Most attractive:
- No employment verification
- No bank account required

Least attractive:
