Netspend Withdrawals at Walmart MoneyCenters
Netspend allows over-the-counter withdrawals at some banks and retail stores, including Walmart. You’ll need to show a valid, government-issued photo ID to make a withdrawal from your Netspend account at a Walmart MoneyCenter. For the list of places where you can reload your Netspend card, see our related article.
- Fees: Vary by store, but you can expect to pay a fee of about $3.75 per withdrawal; Netspend reload locations can set their own fees up to the maximum fee set by Netspend, which is $4 or 2.75% of the withdrawal amount.
- Limits: Netspend has a maximum over-the-counter withdrawal limit of about $5,000 per day. Your local Walmart MoneyCenter may set a lower limit depending on its available cash; if you’re planning to make a large withdrawal, you may want to call your local Walmart ahead of time to see if it can accommodate your request.
Netspend Withdrawals Through Cash Back at the Register
You can make a withdrawal from your Netspend account by making a purchase at Walmart with your Netspend card and requesting cash back at the register or at self-checkout. You can get cash back using your Netspend card at any store that allows cash back by selecting “debit” as your payment method, entering your PIN, and choosing your cash-back amount. While Walmart doesn’t charge a fee for cash back, some stores may charge a fee. See our related article on stores that give cash back for details on which stores charge for this service.
- Fees: None
- Note: Netspend charges a $1 to $2 fee per transaction for debit purchases if you are on the Pay-As-You-Go plan. This fee does not apply if you are on the Monthly Plan or Reduced Monthly Plan.
- Limit: Walmart allows up to $100 cash back at the register and up to $60 cash back at self-checkout per transaction, as previously reported.
Netspend Withdrawals at an In-Store ATM
Your Netspend card functions similarly to a traditional bank debit card, meaning you can use it to make ATM withdrawals. But, since Netspend is not affiliated with a network of ATMs, you will be responsible for the Netspend ATM withdrawal fee ($2.50 per ATM withdrawal) and any ATM operator fees (typically $2.50 to $3 per withdrawal at Walmart). To avoid these fees, you might want to consider getting cash back instead.
- Fees: Netspend charges $2.50 per ATM withdrawal; Walmart ATMs typically charge between $2.50 and $3 per withdrawal
- Limits: Netspend limits ATM withdrawals to $325 per transaction, $940 per day, and no more than six withdrawals within 24 hours.
