The Prepaid seem useless too.

published

These seem to be useless. Can't use it for an Australian editorial to pay for an ad. Couldn't use it for dating app subscriptions either. I used to have success with the load and go - a shame they've killed these off.

Hi Jay,

You've left this review under Load and Go but it seems you may be talking about something. Can you please tell me the specific card you're trying to use? What colour is it?

Load n Go Visa

published

Load n Go Visa is no longer available at Australia post office.s..There was a falling out with Visa and as a result all of the cards available no longer have tech support. As such you can forget trying to load the Visa card you have.

Limited use and support is null.

published

The card has limited use as it can not be used at some supermarkets. Support over the phone , on line or at the Post Office is null for neither of my cards (Everyday and Travel Platinum). Real waste of money.

Love my Load and Go!

published

I love my Load & Go card. It makes online shopping a breeze! I feel safe knowing that, even if the worse comes to the worst, a hacker can't access my bank account. What's more, I can never overspend!
Three cheers for Australia Post for having such a great card.

Load and go does not release funds for payments.

I tried to send some items from an overseas website, but load and go rejected the payments. I kind of think this card is useless , or can I fix this problem. I have tried few website , they are very reputed supermarkets but load and go has rejected the payment.

Hi Priscila,
My payment was rejected from my end, it says 3D secure authentication failed. It is nothing to do with the Website which I am using. I want to deliver some grocery items for my parents overseas.

Please call our Load and Go team, their number is on the back of your card and they can help you with this issue so you can make your order to your parents.

It's Cheap, but the price is speed

published

I transferred money from my bank to the Reloadable Visa Prepaid Card to pay some bills. After 36 hours the money is still not loaded on the card. I enquired at my local post office to see if there was a reason for the hold-up. The reply was " no there is no problem, its usually the sending bank that has not completed the transaction". This only happens when I transfer to the card. When I transfer to another bank it happens in less than a day. The "manage your card from anywhere" is not available from some locations outside Australia.

The card and the charges are cheap compared to others, just don't expect transfers to happen within a day.

Useless product. Did not allow me to check a balance or with cash overseas

published

The point of this seems to be having a prepaid card that can be used for transactions. I am in europe and have been unable to check a balance or withdraw cash. All i could do was try and track how much could remain on the card via receipts. It works fine in Australia though. Useless product auspost

That may be the card is not accepted that or the was an error with the ATM, have you been able to withdrawal money at all?

Great Product for a Credit Alternative

published

I love my Load & Go. It's great for when your in a jam credit wise. I'm not a big believer in Credit Cards, I'd rather ASAP. I do a lot of shopping (online) from the US, UK etc and some companies nowadays only accept credit/debit cards. My Load & Go has saved my online bacon many times, it's easy to load and simple to use. The fees can be a little pricey, but for me it's a small price to pay to get what I want!

Sorry to hear that your new Mastercard had frozen on you and cause you to get a fine, how annoying! Hope your experience with this card gets better from here.

Alice F.Australia Post

Hi Sylvia,

It's never safe to post your card number online. Please remove that from the question.

You will need to call card services on 1800 549 718 to get whatever remaining balance is left on your old Load and Go card transferred.
