There are numerous apps that have made personal transactions a breeze. Some, like Cash App, even offer up a free debit card that you can use for your own purchases at retailers. However, since these apps don’t necessarily function identically to a bank it can be a bit difficult to figure out where to reload money on your Cash App card.
So, where can you reload your Cash App card? There are actually a multitude of places to do so. Let’s take a look at some of the most common places that support reloading your Cash App debit card. Getting the funds on your Cash App card doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Hopefully, going forward you’ll know exactly where you need to go.
Why Would You Need to Reload Your Cash App Card?
Despite so many transactions being handled digitally there are still some instances where you might get a hold of some loose bills. Now, when you have these with your usual bank account, it’s simply a matter of just making a deposit. You go into your local branch, fill out the relevant information needed, and the cash shows up in your account.
Cash App doesn’t function like an ordinary bank. As such, the procedure to reload the card is a bit different. Having loose cash is fine and dandy. However, if you’re wanting to use your Cash App card for purchases to keep everything neat and tidy then you’ll want to reload.
Reloading From Your Bank
Now, one of the easiest methods to reload a Cash App card can be done via a simple bank withdrawal. Everyone with a Cash App account will likely have a bank account attached to help with funding and depositing. Making a simple withdrawal requires no middleman, and is a simple action done through the app’s main menu.
This has some additional steps, of course. As with any other bank deposit, you’ll need to visit your local branch and go through the necessary steps. This method isn’t as immediate as the other methods. If there is any sort of wait time on the deposit, then you’ll of course be subjected to that when moving money to your Cash App account.
Using a Supported Retailer for Your Cash App Card
Cash App has partnered with 17 retailers that support cash deposits. As such, depending on your location, it could be easy to find a participating partner. Now, using a supported retailer means your money gets deposited instantly. This does carry some drawbacks, as you may be required to pay fees at retailers.
There are also some other restrictions to keep in mind when depositing cash through a supported retailer. Cash App has deposit limits with a few varying conditions. For example, you cannot deposit more than $1,000 per seven-day period. This is further extended to not exceeding $4,000 over a 30-day period. Transactions themselves have a minimum deposit of $5 and a maximum deposit of $500. The app itself should notify you if you have exceeded deposit limits.
Beyond Cash App’s own policies, you’ll also be subject to the policies of any of the retailers. The method of loading cash into your Cash App card is largely the same, but there are some areas where retailers may differ. You may find yourself having to pay fees or having some extra steps before completing your transaction. This will of course differ from location to location, so be sure to ask your preferred retailer about how you’ll go about funding your Cash App card.
America’s largest retailer is partnered with Cash App for cash deposits. This is a huge boon for Cash App users, as most areas have access to a Walmart. This, of course, even extends to more rural locations. Reloading your Cash App card at Walmart is a relatively simple procedure. With cash in hand, you’ll have to go to either the Money Center or the customer service department located at each store. From here, you’ll inform the employee you’re looking to make a Cash App deposit and they’ll walk you through the rest of the process.
Walgreens is another of Cash App’s retail partners, and with many locations across the continental United States, it is an easier one to access. Reloading your card is done through any of the cash registers. You just need your cash in hand and to inform the employee that you want to make a cash deposit. The actual procedure can vary from store to store, as you might also need to swipe your card to complete the deposit. The process itself, however, is relatively painless. Do be aware that you might be subject to fees depending on the location.
The popular gas station chain is another of Cash App’s supported retailers. The actual process of reloading your card is similar to other retailers and is handled through any cash register. You’ll need to inform the employee that you want to make a deposit, hand over the cash, and go from there. 7-Eleven locations have varying policies, so you may also be subjected to a small fee here. It is usually a flat fee, however, instead of a percentile based on what you’re depositing.
The three previous retailers covered only comprise a fraction of the actual retailers supporting Cash App deposits. Aside from Walmart, Walgreens, and 7-Eleven, there are 14 other retailers which might only be available on a regional basis. Here are the other retailers:
- Duane Reade
- Family Dollar
- Kum & Go
- Rite Aid
- TravelCenters of America
- Dollar General
- Pilot Travel Center
Locations may vary depending on where you live. However, this selection of retailers should ideally cover a good portion of the United States. A common thread one can trace through any of these retailers is the actual procedure of reloading your Cash App card. Per the official website, the instructions are largely the same for most retailers. As such, it’ll be more dependent on what is nearest to you rather than any particular retailer being better than another.
Cashing Out With Your Cash App Card
Cash App is an endlessly useful app. It can help settle bills between friends at restaurants, pay small businesses, and a whole host of other useful features. Reloading your card isn’t a difficult process, and it extends the usefulness of your own Cash App account. Cash App has luckily made reloading the card a somewhat universal experience, beyond just funding it from your own bank account.
Naturally, the actual policies around funding your personal debit card may differ from location to location. After all, every location is going to have its own policies as retailers aren’t monolithic organizations. You might expect fees at some locations and receive nothing of the like at others. Still, with all this in mind, you are more than ready to get those pesky loose bills in a more convenient form.
