How do you deposit a refund check onto a prepaid debit card?

Asked by: rdhouse 1327 views YA Discussion

How can I deposit(send) my check onto a debit card once it is already in check form? I do not have a bank account I got my tax refund check a little earlier in the month and it came as a paper check. I don’t plan on going to a check cashing retailer. How can I deposit the check onto my sister’s VISA Netspend card? Card do this through ATM or some other way? Thank You
@#2 this is a Prepaid Debit Card, Not A Bank Account. What Am I supposed to Do?

    She won’t be able to deposit your tax refund onto her NetSpend card. Bancorp will bounce that back.

    Your best bet would be to get your own prepaid card. Wal-Mart has a Visa branded card that is probably the best in the business. Minimal fees are involved to get it started (as low as $ 0 and rarely over $ 5) and junk and maintenance fees are virtually nonexistent. They usually waive the fee when you fund it with a tax refund check and they will normally make up to $ 5,000 of a tax refund immediately available to you.

    As a bonus, this card comes with a routing and account number that you can use to have your tax refund, paycheck, or any other funds paid to you electronically. That way you never have to worry about losing money in the mail or being paid late.

    I’m not a big fan of Wally World, but this is one of the things that they got right.

    Endorse check payable to your sister & then she can sign check and deposit into her account which would make it available on her debit card. Discuss with banker first as different banks have different rules. If you have further questions email me at, Vince-Arnone@USOY-Inc.com.
