What are Green Dot accounts and debit cards used for?

Green Dot bank accounts and debit cards are a powerful way to manage your money and make it easy to do things like:

  • Shop online or in-store everywhere Visa® Debit is accepted in the U.S.
  • Receive your pay up to 2 days before payday or government benefits up to 4 days before benefits day with free direct deposit (subject deposit verification and  your payment provider’s process and timing).
  • Overdraft protection up to $200 with opt-in eligible direct deposits. 
  • Earn 2% cash back on online and mobile purchases with the Cash Back Visa Debit Card. 
  • Quickly send money or receive money from other Green Dot cardholders nationwide.
  • Conveniently pay bills on your schedule.
  • Set up Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay so you can “tap to pay” (where mobile payments are accepted) and also easily make mobile purchases (where Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay are accepted). 

Fees and limits apply to above features. Personalized card required.
