•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.

One of my us Buxx has the same status MUCLOSED. I called US bank Buxx this Monday and the rep told me my card was closed at March 8 and she cannot find out the reason. She told me that I will receive a explanation letter from US bank soon. I am still waiting for the letter.

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

I have never used this card at kmart.

Yes it does.

Make that 3 of us.
I also have status MUCLOSED on one of my teen cards... I noticed it a few days ago. Beginning of the end?! I'm not gonna call because my other cards are still open and I don't want to draw attention.

Yes, I have 2K locked in the US Buxx. I also have 1K locked at 2/25 redbird issue, Amex rep told me to wait for 45 days before I can ask for a status update.

So I got 3K locked by US bank & Amex now.

I called today again to check for the status, I was on hold for 20 minutes and the Amex rep finally told me that they still have issues to fix and asked me to wait for 45 days from March 11 before checking for new status.

Goodness, it will be April 25 before I can ask for a new status update.

No. I'm hesitant to load funds on unclosed cards now though...

Do the loads post as cash advance to Citi, Barclays, US Bank, or BOA?
How much is the loading fee and what is the limit? I didn't find an answer on their web site.

How long did you look? Took me 10 seconds to find the fee:

Does anyone here have both USB Buxx and NW Buxx cards? Also when signing up for a NW Buxx card can you initially sign yourself up for parent and teen card? or does it have to be different just like USB Buxx?

from reading the link above seems like you can load only from debit card, and $100 a day from CC with a $5.95 fee
