Are there limits on the amount of purchases, reloads, and cash withdrawals I can make with my prepaid card?


There may be limits on how much money you can have on your prepaid card, how much you can deposit, how much you can spend, and how much you can withdraw in cash at one time. 

The limits on purchases, reloads, and cash withdrawals vary, so check your cardholder agreement. You should usually be able to find a copy of the agreement on your prepaid card provider’s website or ask the card provider for it.
