Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Use the Greenlight Card With Any ATM?

Yes, you can. You can withdraw money from the “spend anywhere” stash as long as the ATM has the MasterCard logo.

Despite this, withdrawal fees will apply. In other words, make sure that you locate some of your “spend anywhere” funds in the “any ATM”(Can You Use Venmo Card At ATM) category as well.


PayPal owns Venmo, an app that allows peer-to-peer money transfers. Money can be sent and received easily between friends and family members(Venmo free money code).

Alternatively, Greenlight offers a debit card for kids called the Greenlight Card. There is one catch, though: it is a prepaid card with parental controls.

The Greenlight card can be loaded with money, and its use can also be controlled by the parents. Greenlight cards help kids learn how to manage their money with debit cards rather than cash.
