this is what I personally did. I drove to dollar general, BOUGHT a netspend card for $4.95, put $20.00 on the card at Dollar General, went home, activated the card per instructions on front of card, called netspend and told them to transfer my refund to the card ( will only transfer $1000.00 so if it's more, the remainder will be on the waiting on the mail card) and had my money (or most of it) in 5 minutes. It costs $4.95 to transfer the money to new card also, btw. So I spent $10.00 for card and transfer, but I got my Gouda and that's all I wanted. Hope this helps.
(the stores that carry the card are listed on their site, under where to refill, I believe, DG is just the one I chose from list cuz it's closest to me)
Here it is a yr later and I still havn't received last yrs taxes. WTF!!!! nobody ever has any answers either! WHERE IS MY MONEY!!!!
Today is 02/07/2014, I received an email that my Netspend card was shipped on 01/21/2014. I never received the card, so I called to have another reissued. The issue with TT customers not receiving their card should be looked into. I already have my deposit with no access to my money.
Today is February 7th, 2014. I filed my taxes on January 20th. I got an email today the 7th and was told my funds were deposited. I never received my card. So there is 4k floating around that anyone can activate. I called customer service. After an hour and a half on hold, I was told a new card will be issued but the old card cant be cancelled...So, potentially by the time I receive this new card, my money could be gone. At least that is what it sounded like from the person on the other end who cannot speak english. Hopefully I see my money. Never again, will I go this route.
People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
- Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
- Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
- Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
- Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
- Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
