Customers may only purchase Wal-Mart Rapid Reload packs from participating store locations. Formerly known as Green Dot MoneyPak reloads, these refill purchases for prepaid debit cards work by allowing cardholders to give their card and cash to Wal-Mart cashiers who then scan the cards and apply funds directly at the time of purchase without the need to go online or call to provide a purchase code. As of December 2015, this service costs a flat rate of $3.74.
Customers may add up to $1,000 to their prepaid debit cards using Wal-Mart's Rapid Reload service, depending on the limits of their prepaid cards. Cardholders in many areas may also deposit funds via this service using preprinted government benefit or payroll checks. Customers may reload include Green Dot, Rush Card, Account Now, Achieve Card and Upside prepaid card offerings.
In addition to the Wal-Mart Rapid Reload offerings, Green Dot also features a Reload @ the Register service at a variety of retail establishments, including Kroger, CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens and Dollar General. This service works the same way: the customers provides the cashier with their card and cash and funds get added within 10 minutes of scanning. Fees for Green Dot debit card refills at retailers other than Wal-Mart run $4.95 per reload, as of December 2015.
