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" (Yaye! I got my card!) I want to share two examples how it was preferred over PayPal.
Example How Cash App is Used
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 mobile bank. Its compareable 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 their credit score or Chexsystem. The above image is our 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 Card
We received our Cash App card officially known as the "Cash Card". Getting it in the mail and opening up the envelope was actually a great experience. We felt as if we were opening a premium debit card. I love the matte black card.
During the registration process we had the option of choosing the 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 we got to choose our website name (Also our Cash app tag name) $ReloadableCards on the front of our Visa card. It's also a plus that the card number and CVC code are located on the back. This is our second card that's designed this way. The first card we received like this was the PayPal Business debit card and it's quite an attractive design.
