•Max load per rolling 30 days: $1,000
•Max ATM per week: ($200 - but only if specifically enabled online, including PIN setup). No fee for some Allpoint ATMs (no way to know in advance if the Allpoint ATM will ding you $1; check your account carefully and call if necessary to reverse the $1 charge…IME 2/3 Allpoint ATMs do charge the fee).
•Max spend per rolling 7 days: $800
•Max # of CC on file is 2.
•Max balance per card: $1000
•Max of 2 loads per CC per 7 day rolling period.

If you card fails to load, check to see if there are at least 7 calendar days between loads, make sure the load won't bring your card above the maximum balance, or try the other CC.

Question for NW Buxx...

•Max load per day: $500
•Max load per rolling 30 days: $1,000
Does max load of $1000 per rolling 30 days apply across all teen cards? Loaded $500 on one card and $500 on another teen card on 3/12. Since then, I cannot load more. Both cards' balances are now $0.

Thats 1k per card, so you can have 2k total.

I am not sure NW Buxx is time sensitive as well for the rolling 30 days but USB Buxx is time sensitive for the rolling 30 days. What is your loading pattern for the months of February and March? List the dates and times for your loads.

NW Buxx isn't time sensitive (the minute you loaded) as US Buxx, only date sensitive (the day you loaded).

I also had a problem loading last night. It said Reached number of reloads or something like that although it had been 30 days since the last load (incl. the stupid February day shift). This morning it went through just fine.

No loads in Jan/Feb.
Loaded $500 to teen1 card on 3/12
Loaded $500 to teen2 card on 3/12
Both teen 1 and teen 2 balances are $0 now.

Just tried to load again and got "Maximum number of reloads reached." error message....

The wiki could be written better. Each CC can fund up to 2 loads per rolling 7-day limit. You will be able to load again 3/19 or 3/20.

Then the 30 day $1000 limit per teen card applies and your next loads will be around 4/12.

Ohhhhh I see! Thank you for explaining that to me!

I'll try on 3/19 or 3/20!

You don't need to wait if you use another CC.

Bancorp Buxx

Has anybody used Buxx.com cards? (Issued by Bancorp bank)

Do the loads post as cash advance to Citi, Barclays, US Bank, or BOA?

Does the $5K per CC for the USB Buxx card include the loading fees meaning can I do 10 x $500 loads and still be within the limits? Or does the $2.50 load fee from the 9 previous $500 loads get factored in?

EDIT: Yeah it looks like the $5K per CC includes the fees which means the max you can load with 1 CC is $4975 (funds) + $25 (load fees) = $5K.

Anyone knows if NW Buxx counts $200 ATM cash withdrawal counts towards $800 max weekly spend limit? I'd rather avoid calling NW Buxx customer rep and bringing unnecessary attention to the MS activities.

Logged into my us buxx account today and one of my cards is in status MUCLOSED

What does that stand for? I'm assuming it is closed? Anyone seen this status?

I have never used this card at kmart.
