Turbo debit cards are a great way to limit how much cash you're spending. Once you've used up the credit on a card, it needs to be reloaded before being used again. Most people use these cards as a way of getting their stimulus check or tax refund, so they'll never use them again. However, it's not very clear how to reload a Turbo debit card for those who want to. In this guide, we'll cover how to do just that, including where you can do it as well.
Users just need to ask cashiers at any of the 90,000 locations to reload their Turbo Debit card with cash, and they'll do it there and then. A fee of up to $4,95 will be drawn from your account. Stores to deposit include 7-Eleven, Dollar General, CVS, and Walmart are all open to doing this.
Where to Reload a Turbo Debit Card
As we've mentioned already, there are tens of thousands of locations where you can load your card. In fact, we've got a list of all the participating retailers right here for you.
- Ace Cash Express
- Dollar General
- Family Dollar
- Rite Aid
In addition to all of these retailers, local stores may also offer the same service. If they do, they'll have a sign displayed on their cashier's counter saying so. If you're hoping to load your card at your local store, it's worth looking for that sign before asking the cashier.
How to Reload Your Card
The process of actually reloading your card is also straightforward. Once you've stopped at a store, you need to go inside and ask the cashier to reload your card. They'll be able to do this for you right then and there. You can pay them in cash, and within minutes you'll have reloaded your Turbo card.
Do note that there is a fee for doing this though. While the fee varies from store to store, it's always up to $4.95. Be prepared to pay that fee if you want to load your card. This means that you'll need an additional $4.95 on top of the amount you want to charge your card with.
Unfortunately, the fee varies because it's down to each store to decide how much of a cut they take for the service. This doesn't have anything to do with the amount you're reloading your card with. That's why it's worth reloading your card with as much money as possible, helping you avoid paying too many fees.
Reload Your Card With MoneyPak
While it's easier to reload your card with cash, sometimes you need to reload someone else's card. This might be for an allowance for a child or to pay someone back, regardless of why it's possible to do this with a MoneyPak.
You can purchase a MoneyPak from any of the stores we've listed above for $5.95. It costs a little more than the charge for reloading a Turbo card because of the added convenience.
The MoneyPak can be charged with between $20 and $500. You can then give it to whoever you want to pay, and they'll be able to reload their card with it. You could even use it as a birthday present since the MoneyPak is the perfect size to fit inside a card.
Reloading your Turbo debit card is incredibly easy. All you have to do is visit one of the stores we've mentioned in this guide, and either charge your card with cash or purchase a MoneyPak. With over 100,000 stores to choose from around the US, it couldn't be easier to charge your card as and when you need to.
