And it's down again. Need to get my $ out to give to repo man to keep them from taking my ride and they have no means of getting my cash out. So I guess it's go to jail for shooting the report man .

I went to pay off my apt today to move in next week. And I couldn't get my money, very pissed the *** off and I possibly might loose it if I can't get my money by tomorrow morning. Call and all circuits are busy

It is now 2016 and I am having the same freaking problem. Been with them over 15 years but in the last year things have gotten worse. Plan on calling several large financial institutions Netspend is affiliated with to voice my complaint. I'm done with these people.

They don't have a working phone line and the *** answering service is not there. I filled a formal complaint with the State of Texas (Austin) of this conserning ongoing problem.
Yes there should be a class law suit.
I will look for an alternate card aond get out of this train wreck...

It doesn't cost them anything! When the system is down they make plenty of money because people have to call in for their balances. They charge a fee when you call with an inquiry so it's good business for the site to go down. And no, there's not an excuse for it. Mission critical networks don't go down. EVER! Hospitals and banks across the globe manage this all day every day. I'm closing my account. I've had it!

My family lives out of town and we wanted to rent a car on Thanksgiving since our car recently had been having problems. I called Enterprise rental car company because they offered to pick us up and take us into the office to rent a vehicle. It was already a hassle with all of their pprwrk and processing. I thought however, that we were finally ready to go and gave them my Netspend card for payment, to which my check was deposited that morning. Imagine my surprise when the card was declined! I asked them to run it again, and apparently they have to wait 24hrs before using the same card! I find out that Netspend's system was down and because of this, I had no way to drive home for Thanksgiving. I have appreciated Netspend to this point, but it always seems to go down at the most inconvenient times. I even had to walk back home from Enterprise, what a horrible experience.

Their system was down for only a few hours. This can happen with any company and I am sure you have all had this happen in some way or another. I was glad that they worked promptly to get the system back up because I am sure there were not that many people working on Thanksgiving Eve. I am happy with NetSpend and have not had any problems before this.

After going through it with them this whole year (never sent personalized card, TOOK money out of my account), I've had it! I JUST recieved my personalized card today, after almost a whole year! They returned the money to my account, but now I can't even activate my card to get it. Their whole business policy is built around giving you no options to contest.

I was at at retailer getting ready to make a purchase and my card would not go through. Thinking it was an error, I went to an ATM, my card would not go through either, I called the company same experience as Pissed...I could not get through to anyone, just got disconnected. Tried to access my account via the web and its like Netspend disappeared off the face of the planet. What is going on...I can't access my funds and cant talk to anyone! HELP
