Cash App has become almost a must have financial app especially for Millennials and Generation Z. Before I jump into what cash app is and discuss what I like & dislike about the "Cash Card" I want to share two examples how it was preferred over PayPal.
Can You Use a Reloadable Card for Cash App?
No. It is unfortunate but you cannot use a reloadable card for Cash App. There is however a work-around that requires you to sign up for a Chime account and connect that debit card to your Cash App. Chime works just like a reloadable card but its actually a debit card. Its comparable to the Blue Bird reloadable card as far as low-to-no fees and most people are accepted as members because Chime does not turn potential members away because of bad credit score or use the Chexsystems. The above image is a Chime debit card successfully connected to the Cash App. Learn more about the Chime Bank and decide whether or not you want to take this route.

$ReloadableCard Cash CardI received the Cash App card officially known as the "Cash Card". Getting it in the mail and opening up the envelope was actually a great experience. I felt as if I were opening a premium debit card. I love the matte black color.
During the registration process I had the option of choosing the matte black card or the white card. The black card has always reminded me of the American Express "unlimited credit" black credit card so that's why I chose this color. I do dislike that the Cash card easily left smudge finger prints visible on the front of the card (see photo below).
On the flipside I love that I got to choose the website name (Also the Cash app tag name) $ReloadableCards on the front of the Visa card. It's also a plus that the card number and CVC code are located on the back, which tends to be the new trend with prepaid and debit cards lately.
Can I Load My Cash App Card at Walmart or Walgreens?
No, you cannot currently load your Cash App debit card at Walmart, Walgreens or any other retail stores. Cash App debit card can only be loaded by linking a bank account to the card and then pushing funds from that bank account into your Cash App account. This is currently the only way to add money onto your Cash App card.
