To obtain a Green Dot debit card if you?re below 18 years old, a parent or legal guardian must accept the cardholder agreement by phone on your behalf during the registration process, states the official Green Dot website. Wait for seven to 10 business days to receive your personalized card.
While waiting for your personalized card, use the supplied temporary card to shop online or pay bills, states Green Dot. Buy a MoneyPak at any participating retailer to load the card. Once you receive the personalized card, activate it by calling the toll-free number listed on the back of the card. After activation, Green Dot instantly transfers the funds from the temporary card to your personalized card. The card is valid for use at any store that accepts Visa debit cards.
