RushCard claims you can get Direct Deposit of your payroll to your RushCard and get access to your money up to 2 days sooner. Or get your government benefits up to 3 days sooner, but in reality, if your thinking that the RushCard is better than just opening a Bank Account, think again!
The minute these jokers get your direct deposit or government benefits two to three days sooner, they will block the card, hold your money, and demand copies of personal information for the release of your own funds. Meantime you have no access to your money and are left broke and upset, while the RushCard rude customer service representative slowly tells you, your documents aren’t good enough and demand better for the release of any funds.
On top of that, for the RushCard prepaid visa they charge a signup fee, monthly fees, and hidden fees, all for access to your own money. Don’t be fooled by their promises of no overdraft fees, a Bank Account and Debit Card are just as easily obtainable, less expensive and overdraft holds can be placed on any account.
