H&R Block Emerald Prepaid MasterCard can no longer be loaded using a debit card. Not many people use the Emerald Card as their go to option for manufactured spending, but if you did, then this is bad news.
I received the following email today…
H&R Block Bank is suspending the Debit Card Funding feature of the H&R Block Emerald Prepaid MasterCard®. This feature was one of many options available to add money to your Emerald Card by linking an external bank debit card. All other options to load money to your Emerald Card are still available; however, the Debit Card Funding feature has been suspended.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
H&R Block has been knowing to close down accounts often so the Emerald Card has always been hard to deal with. If you don’t have the card, then don’t worry, you’re not missing much and there’s no great reason to get it.
