Update: No news here at all, but if you only started paying attention to Vanilla Reloads once Bluebird came around then you can come out from under the same rock that I was under!
I still have a few prepaid cards from back when they were offering a bonus to signup for them.
My wife and I both have bluebird cards, so that’s an easy $10,000 of spending we can do per month and cash out for free. This just adds a little more free spending. With a prepaid card you get 1 free ATM transaction per month and additional transactions are $2.
You can find more info on loading your prepaid card from Vanilla Reload or from Green Dot on the FAQ page.
In case you need to meet spend thresholds cards like Vanilla Reloads or Vanilla Debit are just perfect. They’re also great for just getting cheap miles, especially with CVS earning 5x on Freedom this quarter.
You can find free ATMs in Brooklyn inside and outside the Barclays Center. In Cleveland, Columbus, and Pittsburgh you can go into any Getgo gas stations for free ATMs along with your free gas.
You can withdraw up to $400 per day from your prepaid card. My wife and I have 6 cards, so that’s nothing to sneeze at!
