What is Control?


A Brand you can Trust

The Control Prepaid Mastercard® is more than just a debit card. We specifically designed it to help you manage all aspects of your money. Successfully controlling your finances can be the difference between getting by and getting ahead. The Control Card is committed to helping you reach your goals.

Exercise your Options

Traditional banks aren't for everyone, so the Control Card can be a smart alternative. It gives you the tools to help you manage every dollar you spend. This is the power of choice.

You spoke, We Listened

Convenience: We all appreciate the things that make life simpler. That's why the Control Card offers you access to your money up to two days faster2 with no-cost* direct deposit, while online bill pay and cardholder to cardholder payments make sending money easier. And because convenience feels so good, there are more than 130,000 Netspend Reload Network locations nationwide where you can add money to your card and millions of places where your Debit Mastercard is accepted. Fees may apply to some of these services.

Control: Next time you need to know if you've got the funds for that “must have” purchase, remember the Control Card  is more than a debit card, it’s peace of mind. You can quickly access your monthly shopping budget online with just a few clicks. And with Anytime Alerts, you can check your balance anytime, anywhere and find the closest reload location to add cash.3

Value: You're looking for maximum value in all aspects of your life. From where you shop for groceries, to your choice of entertainment to where you get your hair done. With a straightforward fee plan and a cash back rewards program4 to maximize your money's potential, the Control Card delivers the value you deserve.

* No fee for direct deposit services, but there may be a cost when reloading card at retail locations or via bank fund transfer. See your Cardholder Agreement or Online Account Center for details.

1 IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OPENING A NEW CARD ACCOUNT: To help the federal government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the USA PATRIOT Act requires all financial institutions and their third parties to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card Account. What this means for you: When you open a Card Account, we will ask for your name, street address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents. In accordance with federal regulations, until it is activated and registered, a prepaid card is subject to initial load limitations, may not be used for ATM use, international transactions, account-to-account transfers, or be reloaded. Residents of the State of Vermont are ineligible to open a Card Account.

2 Faster funding claim is based on a comparison of our policy of making funds available upon receipt of payment instruction versus the typical banking practice of posting funds at settlement. Fraud prevention restrictions may delay availability of funds with or without notice. Early availability of funds requires payor's support of direct deposit and is subject to the timing of payor's payment instruction.

3 No charge for this service, but your wireless carrier may charge for messages or data.

4 Payback Rewards is an optional program. You may opt-out at any time by visiting the Payback Rewards page in your Online Account Center. Reward offers are based on individual shopping habits. Cash back rewards are credited to your Card Account and are not available in the form of a check or other direct payment method. See the program FAQs and Terms and Conditions in your Online Account Center for additional details about how and when you get rewarded. Program sponsor: Netspend Corporation. MetaBank and Mastercard are not affiliated in any way with this program and do not endorse or sponsor this program.
