READYdebit Visa Prepaid Card

  • No charge for ATM balance inquiries.
  • ATM Owner's may still charge fee.
  • One free customer service call a month.
Card Details
  • This card has a high monthly fee. They do not charge for ATM balance inquiries (although the owner of the ATM machine may still charge a fee) so if you need to check your balance at ATM a lot this card may end up being cheaper but in general we would not choose this card. If you need to check your balances we always suggest checking it online where it's usually free on any card.
  • Cash reloads are done at MoneyPak or at Visa Ready Link Locations.
  • Platinum cards have free live customer service
