How It Works
Because you spend only what you put into your card account, you can avoid bounced checks, credit card debt and overdraft fees.
It's simple to order a ControlTM Prepaid Mastercard. All we need is your name and address. That's it. Your new personalized card will arrive by mail in just 5-10 business days. (Residents of the State of Vermont are ineligible to open a Card Account.)
Once you activate your Control card, spend a few extra minutes to create an online account and start taking control of your money.
Activate your Control Card

You've got places to go, people to see and things to do, so we made adding money to your Control card convenient. Whether it's through Direct Deposit, cardholder to cardholder transfers to friends and family, or a visit to any one of 130,000 Netspend Reload Network locations nationwide, you can trust that we've got you covered.
