Default Green Dot Refill Card

Has anyone heard of this card?My son has been relocated to another prison.
He told me if I would get a green dot card,I could give him the number of the card and he can get his canteen things before he goes into lockdown.
He says they are everywhere,I know nothing about them.
Could someone help me.
Thankyou,
Marchio1948

I have never heard of this nor has my son ever mentioned anything like this. I wonder what it is?

Hi Diane, I was looking Green Dot Card up on the web in S. Carolina. and you can buy one at Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Kroger, Rallphs, or Food for Less. There was also a web-site www,acoutnow.com/GreenDot , I hope this helps. There was also a lionk back here that others had posted replys on but I don't see it? There was another link back to PTO that would not respond but in the link there was a little info that leds me to think that S. Carolina does have this serve avaliable that you can use the card to pay for canteen, phone calls and also packages for your loved one with that card. It is a pre-paid card {visa}. I have a pre-paid card that I use to buy things like writing supplies for my son over the net. Good Luck with this. Mercedes

SC is also one of the states that you can put money on their commissary account through jpay. You can set up an account at www.jpay.com. They are easy to use and suggest your user name as your email addy and a password of your choosing. This has been a real blessing for me since our state got them.
