Store Options for Loading Your Venmo Card
Did you just get your Venmo card and ready to load it up with cold, hard cash? Luckily, you have several options when it comes to loading your Venmo card—all without having to visit a bank.
One great option for loading your Venmo card is through any Walgreens store. Simply use the [Venmo Cash Loader] at the register and select how much money you’d like to add ($1-$500). Your cash will be added instantly and ready for use whenever you need it.
You can also use Money Services locations or other participating stores to load your Venmo Card. You'll need to enable Cash Access first—simply follow the instructions in the Venmo app under "Cash Access". Once your account is enabled, head to [Money Services] and choose 'Pay/Load' at the register. Then select 'Load a Card' and enter in your information. You can add between $20-$500 cash in one go—and don't forget that a fee may apply!
When you transfer money from your bank account, there may be some fees associated with it. Be sure to check the terms and conditions of your bank's policy as well as any fee terms set out by Venmo before making a transfer. In addition, many banks also have limitations on how much money can be transferred between two accounts.
When adding funds with a debit or credit card, it's important to note that there is an activation period where the funds may not be accessible right away when using certain stores like Walgreens and other retailers. The activation period varies depending on the type of card used. Before relying on the funds in your Venmo account, contact the store directly for more information regarding their activation periods.
By understanding these important points before loading money into your Venmo card, you'll ensure that any transactions you make go smoothly and without any unexpected fees or delays!
