I was approved for a $1000 advance. My refund was accepted by the IRS on the 14th around 8:00 pm and it's now the 16th at 9:30 am and I still haven't received the refund advance on the online card (shows a $0.00 balance). There is nobody you can talk to either to see when it will get deposited to the account either so in my opinion I think if you are depending on that advance you are better off going somewhere else that has customer service that can help you with this.
You’ll receive your Refund Advance within 48 hours of the IRS accepting your e-filed return. This differs from 48 hours from when you e-filed your taxes through TurboTax or selected that you wanted Refund Advance. The IRS usually begins processing and accepting e-filed returns in late January.
I was approved for $2000 and called and chatted with Turbo Tax and agent told me to call green dot and i did and they told me to contact turbo tax. Mine was accepted on Monday evening from the IRS and still no funds on the card either. Have you received any more answers ?

If approved, you will receive temporary card info for online use typically within 1 hour of the IRS accepting your e-filed federal return. This temporary card info will work for 15 days or until you activate your physical Turbo® Visa® Debit Card, which will arrive in 5 to 10 business days of IRS acceptance and loan approval. 0% APR & $0 loan fees. This offer is only available until February 7, 2020.

Refund Advance is a loan based upon your anticipated refund and is not the refund itself. To apply for the Refund Advance, you must file your taxes with TurboTax. Availability of the Refund Advance is subject to satisfaction of identity verification, certain security requirements, eligibility criteria, and underwriting standards.

Separate fees apply if you select a Refund Transfer. A Refund Transfer is not required for the Refund Advance loan.
Not all consumers will qualify for a loan or for the maximum loan amount. If approved, your loan will be for one of six amounts: $250, $500, $750, $1,000, $1,500, or $2,000. Your loan amount will be based on a portion of your anticipated federal refund. You will not receive a final decision of whether you are approved for the Loan until after you file your taxes and the IRS accepts your return. Loan repayment is deducted from your federal tax refund and reduces the subsequent refund amount paid directly to you on your Turbo Card.
Fees may apply for other products and services.
If you created a Turbo Visa Debit Card online account and have funds available but you’re unable to use your temporary card number for online purchases, call us toll-free at (888) 285-4169.
If you received a Refund Advance last year, you’ll need to create a new account to see your Refund Advance funds for this year. You won’t see the funds if you log in with the account you made last year.
