What Is Control?

The strength and security of brands you can trust.

Brands you can trust.

When BET and NetSpend agreed to create the ControlTM Prepaid MasterCard we knew it had to be more than just a debit card. So 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 and the companies behind the ControlTM card are 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 allows you to avoid credit card debt and overdraft fees and gives you the tools to manage every dollar you spend. And since there's no credit check or Chexsystems check, you're guaranteed approval once we verify your identity.1 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 faster with free direct deposit2, while online bill pay and cardholder to cardholder payments make sending money easier. And because convenience feels so good, there are more than 100,000 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 Prepaid MasterCard 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.

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, access to the surcharge free AllPoint ATM network and special offers to maximize your money's potential, the Control card delivers the value you deserve.
