Prepaid cards

Can I overdraft my prepaid debit card?

In general, prepaid debit cards are set up so that you can’t overdraft; if you attempt to use your card and don’t have enough money in your account it will be declined.

Some cards let you overdraft by a small dollar amount each month without a fee. However, you will have to add more money to your card to pay back the overdraft.
