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.

published

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.

Priscila L.Australia Post

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.

The Visa card experience

published

As with Les of Brisbane, my reloadable Visa card expired and when I visited Aus Post, I was directed to its replacement being the Mastercard.

All of my re-occurring bill payments didnt get paid, my daughters mobile accounts were deactivated etc. When I contacted Aus Post I was directed to Mastercard where I was informed that the new card doesn't provide for ongoing deduction.

The response to Les of Brisbane's similar issues was that the new card is better - I am yet to see how having a replacement card which does less than its predecessor is better...................

load and go Australia post debit card

published

I bought the load and go from the post office. when I first bought the load and go card. it was great they were good for 3 years. I would go to the drive through at Mc Donalds by the time I payed with my card by the time I drove to the next window. I would have a text sent to my phone. it would tell me how much I spent. what my balance was. you could put in $10 at a time not $20 as is the case now. my cards were corrupted on 2 separate occasions. now you have to put in a minimum of $20. the cards are good for a year. I only put money on the card 2 days before my bill is due. when you buy something you don't get a notification on your phone reguards your balance.

Okay so just to confirm, the app is not sending you notifications of your balance however you are able to check it whenever you need to. I understand it's handy to know there and then of the remaining balance.

One star is too good for this rubbish

published

Customer service (ha ha) in Asia somewhere says that its the merchants fault that I can not pay my bills with my Visa reloadable. Load N Go. I follow all the on line directions as to how to put funds on my card but my bank wont accept the number. Again the incomprehensible service chap says that its my banks fault. Totally hopeless. AVOID this card. Frustrating, inconvenient and useless.

Disappointing that cards are no longer available and existing cards will not be renewed. The card has been great. No interest rates . It better for low income people. I hope they are bought back in

Hi Priscila, Thanks for getting back to me. I put $200 on the card and was unable to use it on one site. I had no issues spending money on another site though. The code fault was 05 which says to contact the card issuer to resolve the issue..

There is still money on the card now.

Very Dishonest.

I recently lost my prepaid card, and per the information provided on the Aus post website on the Load and Go Prepaid Card ( https://auspost.com.au/money-insurance/make-payments/explore-online-payment-alternatives/loadgo-reloadable-visa-prepaid-card#tab2 ) I'm entitled to a free card replacement, yet when I contacted them over the phone, the employee tells me thats NOT the case and I will have to pay $7.95 to get a new one, DISREGARDING what they've already written on their website. When I bring his attention to the post, he mentions how they're "working on it".
How dishonest is that?

Thank you, Michael. I contacted them again, and thats not the case. They really don't want to honour what they have on the website. Never mind, because losing my card, is a good excuse not to use such a dishonest service.

Can you reload your post office reloadable master card online from your bank account

3 answers

Catherine BNE.

I'm guessing you can, but I don't do internet banking. I always go to the P.O.. Have a look at the little booklet they gave you when you bought the card or phone the P.O. and ask them.

I'm not really the person to comment on Load&Go cards as I've been told that I can't have the $776.24 that was on my card. I had no idea that the cards were to be discontinued & only found out when I went online to find out when my replacement card would arrive. I rang the 1300 number & was told that my money would be in my bank account within 14 days....didn't happen. My email was blocked & the next one was when I was told that my money wouldn't be returned. I then contacted the Banking Ombudsman & was given a case number but there will be a delay because of the Corona virus which is fair enough. Load&Go was terrific & not connected to my bank account. I want a debit card that is not connected to my bank account as there are so many horror stories. I'll probably get an Australia Post Mastercard as I live in a small town & do some online shopping for things that I can't obtain locally or in the next town which is 100km away.

Take all your remaining money out (I can't remember if I bought something or did it at the P.O.) then put it into my new account. You can't transfer it.
