The best way to check the balance of a prepaid Visa card is to check the balance through the issuer's officialwebsite. Cardholders can also call a toll-free service number, according to Visa's official website.
All financial institutions that issue prepaid Visa cards offer either a customer service website where cardholders can check their card balances or a toll free number that can provide information on balances. Some issuers also offer cell phone appsthat allow cardholders to check their balances on the go.
Some issuers, such as GreenDot,offer balances through text messages. Cardholders can simply send messages to the number provided to receive an up-to-date balance as a text message.
Some retailerscan also provide cardholders with prepaid card balances. These retailers include Kmart, Toys R Us, Abercrombie & Fitch, Marshalls, Barns & Noble, Office Max, Kohl's and Nordstrom. Customers can ask for their balances at the cash register. Other retailers may not be able to provide cardholders with up-to-datebalances.
Some ATM machines can provide card balances. However, some may charge a small fee for this service. Users can also call the number on the back of the prepaid card or check any paper statements the company provides.
