32 Stores That Sell Prepaid Cards (Walmart? Kroger? etc)

Prepaid cards are available at various retailers, including grocery stores, superstores, and convenience stores. These retailers sell cards from companies like Green Dot and Netspend, which allow you to reload a card with money and use it in place of a traditional debit or credit card when making purchases in stores or online.

Note that most stores charge purchase fees of up to $6 when you buy a prepaid card. You might be able to avoid this fee by buying the card online. For example, the Walmart MoneyCard costs $1 in stores but is free to get if you sign up online.[1]

Additionally, the availability of specific cards varies by store location; if you’re looking for a particular card, you might want to contact your local store before visiting. Find more information about the available cards in our list of the best prepaid cards.
