stupid visa card
#1
I got my son a visa card at the store loaded 100.00 on it and now it says there is no money in it. This was a month ago and he is just starting to use it. I cannot find the receipt and after going through a bunch of hoops on their stupid website I still have no money in it. It pisses me off because I've done this before with no issues. It's some apple green dot thing and they fucking suck!. Their stupid chat thing isn't working and the phone number is a computer. WTF!!

By any chance did you grab the card while in the checkout line and hand it to the cashier to load? I ask because I've read that people copy the card and periodically check to see if the cash has been loaded and once they discover it has, they make their move to spend it.

yes she loaded it I watched and asked if it was good. This was a new card that I don't usually use. I think I'm screwed on this one.

That's what you get for impregnating your wife.

Whenever I'm in a checkout line & see all those cards one can load money onto I think of that story I just told you about.

I found the receipt and it shows the money was received but it wasn't loaded on the card. My son would not lie about it.  I am going to Rite aid tomorrow to check it out. I think the girl took the money and didn't put it on the card. We will see when the camera is re winded.

Would your daughter have waited a month to spend the money? Just curious.

I'm glad you found the receipt!

Maybe, she works and doesn't spend a dime. Both are savers not spenders.

My sister sent me a fuel gift card. It was declined. I wasn't going to tell her since I thought it was just a promo she gets at work sometimes but because of this thread I let her know! (In case she put money on it.
But turns out it was a promo.

I finally fixed it! Rite Aid gave me back 95.00 for the 100.00 I put on the card through loss prevention. It seems green dot is not a good company to put money on a card with. They are a weird company and I thought it was just a regular pre-paid card that would be fine. They are taking the cards off the shelf and not using them anymore. I was surprised I only lost 7.98 on the entire thing and I guess live and learn applies to this situation. 

My Son has his graduation money and I didn't lose much. What a world, what a world.

It's cool that rite aid did that for you.    I  didn't realize green dot cards were still around.   I found out the hard way that they take $5.00 off the balance every month.
