The Momentum Visa debit card can be used anywhere Visa cards are accepted, explains the website's FAQ page. It is a prepaid debit card, and you can only spend the amount you have loaded onto the card. Occasionally, a negative balance may occur when a merchant allows a purchase in excess of funds available. In this case, the cardholder is responsible for the negative balance. A number of options are available to reload the card: visit Money Mart or The Check Cashing Store; sign up for direct deposit on the website; or use Visa ReadyLink at a participating retail outlet.
