There are several ways to check your Green Dot card balance. You can check your balance online, with a smartphone, via text message, email alert, or using the Green Dot mobile app. You can also check your Green Dot card balance with an ATM.
Green Dot offers a range of prepaid MasterCard or Visa debit cards you can purchase at local stores near you. These cards can be reloaded with money, used to make purchases, or make withdrawals from the ATMs.
These cards could incur fees such as charges for inactivity, ATM use, and monthly maintenance fees, as well as any money spent on purchases or withdrawals.
Keeping track of your Green Dot card balance can help you avoid being declined when making a transaction.
Manage your Green Dot account online
To readily keep track of your balance and manage your Green Dot card through the company’s website and app, you need a Green Dot account. To access your account, visit the Green Dot website and click the “Log In” button.
At the top of the homepage, you will see a “Create Online User ID” link. Click it to register for an account. Alternatively, you can tap “Create One Now” on the homepage of the Green Dot mobile app.
When creating your account, you will be required to enter your card information, such as your card number, security code, and expiration date. You may also be requested to create a password; make sure it’s a password that no one can guess but one you can always remember.
Follow the steps to provide your zip code, date of birth, and the last four digits of your SSN. You’ll then be prompted to create your account details, enter your email address, and set up security questions.
Green Dot will prompt you to recheck your account information to be sure they are correct. Next, confirm and start managing your account online.
