College students: There is one thing you won’t want to forget this spring break, and that’s a reloadable prepaid card from Green Dot. Here are four ways it can make your vacation a whole lot easier.
1. No overdraft fees.
Enjoying a night out on the town with friends and don’t realize how much you’ve charged to your card? The next morning, you wake up to notice you’ve overdrawn your account by just a few dollars and have gotten hit with a pricey overdraft fee. It’s happened to the best of us and it sucks. Luckily, Green Dot never charges overdraft fees, ever. So, if you’re going anywhere in the U.S. for spring break this year, be sure to bring your Green Dot card with you and kiss those worries goodbye!
2. Easily send and receive money from friends.
Need to pay your friends back for your share of gas money, hotel cost, or dinner last night? Or maybe they need to pay you back? The Green Dot card makes the whole process a lot simpler by letting you transfer money anywhere in the U.S. from your card to another Green Dot Bank-issued card. Instead of scrounging up cash and trying to keep track of what you owe, you can quickly send and receive money from friends, any time of day.
3. Track your spending.
Want to stay on budget even while you’re on break? No problem! With Green Dot’s mobile app, you can keep track of everything you spend on your card, and see at a glance how much you have left. Balance starting to run a little low? You can easily load more cash to your card for just $4.95 at thousands of participating retailers nationwide.
4. No need to bring cash.
We all know what a hassle cash can be—digging it up out of your purse; making sure it doesn’t get lost or stolen or wet. Leave your wads of cash home this spring break. Not only can you use your Green Dot card anywhere Visa® Debit is accepted in the U.S., but you can also use it to withdraw cash whenever you need to (ATM fees apply).
As you start planning for spring break, be sure you also get your Green Dot Prepaid Card loaded and ready to go. Get one online and don’t forget to take a look at their simple fees while you’re at it!
