Update 8/28/21: The $3.74 fee is coming on September 16th, according to an email sent out by GoBank. Separately, they are closing out all old GoBank accounts effective October 31, 2021.
Update 7/27/21: Multiple readers are reporting that it’s back free again. Seems it was just a short-lived glitch in the system that was erroneously charging a fee.
Walmart partners with various prepaid cards to allow cash or debit card loading in Walmart stores, including prepaid cards such as BlueBird, Serve, GoBank, Green Dot, and more. Loads on the GoBank card have always been free, as per their agreement with Walmart. However, reader RF reports that they recently began charging a $3.74 load fee, and Flyertalk data points also point to the fact that Walmart unilaterally added a $3.74 fee for loading. BlueBird and Serve loads are still free.
