•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

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.

Curiously, about how many teen cards do you guys have per parent account for USB Buxx? Also is there an optimal load pattern with switching out CC's etc with the limits?

Searched the old thread and this one, didn't find an answer. US Bank list one of buxx cards as PFRAUD and when I called they said because of the charge and refund they suspected fraud and want the original receipt faxed to them. This was because the walmart register turned off completely during the transaction. So, my question, has anyone faxed a copy of the $2k receipt for money orders to them and had any positive or negative results? I'm unsure if I should just let that account go and make a new one?

VISA Buxx (2015)

Just send them what they want. Shouldn't be a problem. People do use debit cards to buy MOs. It's not unusual.

For "Each CC has a max of 2 loads per 7 day rolling period" with NW buxx, is that even between different parent accounts or within each parent account?

I think your terminology is incorrect. The parent is the loader so I think you mean between the different teen accounts.

Doesn't matter which teen account you load to. You can only make 2 loads in a 7 day rolling period to any teen account (both to the same teen OR 1 load each to 2 teens)

I don't know about the situation where you are the parent and your wife is a teen for 1 account and then vice versa for a 2nd account assuming you use the same CCs. Try it and find out. But what I am saying is assuming within the parent account...the load pattern for the teen accounts.

Went to ATM today to take out $200. No money comes out but receipt said $200 completed. Anyone have any experience disputing with NW buxx? I hope they settle the dispute fast

MUCLOSED
Sorry, I embelish, only three posters, but all three in the past 10 days. Would be good to know if all trhee did the same thing thing. Thinking it must be one unique thing, since its only one card in the family. Mayby an attempted serve type load (that has gotten me in tourble with other cards).

CA on NW Buxx

Just used Fidelity Visa on NW Buxx and my CA limit went down $502 - it is still pending so hopefully it will post as purchase. This did not happen last month when I used Fidelity Visa; it never decreased my CA limit. Anyone else notice any changes yet this month with NW Buxx?
