All You Need to Know About the MoneyPak Refund Process
MoneyPak is a type of stored value card owned by the Green Dot Corporation. Its appeal lies in being a handy tool to deposit funds at a moment’s notice. Unfortunately, it happens too often that users are dissatisfied with their MoneyPak purchase or suspect a nasty scam. If that is the case with you, here’s all you need to know about the MoneyPak refund process.
How Does MoneyPak Refund Work?
When it comes to the MoneyPak refund policies, they are rather scant and strict. It seems there is only one rule — to get the money you spent on the card back, you mustn’t use the card. That’s right. With all the imaginative ways the company came up with on how customers can use the MoneyPak card, it put a restriction on its refund policy.
Go With DoNotPay to Request a MoneyPak Refund
Because MoneyPak itself doesn’t offer many options to request a refund, your best bet is to go with DoNotPay. You don’t need to deal with MoneyPak, Green Dot, or any other customer service when we request a refund for you. The process is laughably easy too.
Your only task is to open an account — if you don’t already have one — using any web browser. When you access DoNotPay, just follow these simple steps:
- Click Get Protected on the Chargeback Instantly section
- Tell us how you paid for the MoneyPak card

Sending a Refund Request to MoneyPak on Your Own
We’ve already told you there aren’t many ways to send a refund request to MoneyPak manually — and now, we’ll prove it. Besides having a strict requirement the users have to meet, MoneyPak allows a refund request to be made in only two ways:
- Using the company’s website
- Calling MoneyPak customer support
How to Request a Refund on the MoneyPak Website
If you do decide to file a refund request manually, using the MoneyPak website, there are quite a couple of steps you have to go through. Here is the process:
- Go to the MoneyPak FAQs page
- Scroll to the bottom to locate the question related to refunds

MoneyPak will contact you by either phone or email once they process the request. Once again, keep in mind that, according to their policy, refunds are possible only if the debit card wasn’t used. This rule applies when you suspect you’re being scammed too.
To give you an idea of all the pieces of information you need to fill out in your MoneyPak refund form, we’ll list some:
- MoneyPak number
- First and last name

Can I Request a Refund Via
When Will You Receive a MoneyPak Refund?
If you request a MoneyPak refund, you have to give the company time to process the request. It seems that money is given back to users in the form of refund checks. These should arrive in one or two weeks. Sometimes, at the discretion of Green Dot, you may be contacted by the company to provide additional information, which may delay the refund itself.
Keep in mind that the service fees you were charged on the initial purchase of the debit card are nonrefundable. You also need to have kept the package and receipt of your purchase to apply for a refund.
What You Need to Be Careful About With MoneyPak
When using any stored value card, you need to be extra careful how you handle it. This is especially true in the case of the Green Dot’s MoneyPak card. People generally complain about how easy it is to fall victim to fraud and scam using this particular debit card.
Other issues you can encounter with MoneyPak are:
- Computerized ads in forms of calls and text messages
- Automated customer service
- Real people never reaching you when you call the customer service
- No protection from scammers
The last entry is especially biting since the company clearly states your funds are nonrefundable once the card is used. Yet, it could be that you weren’t the one who used up the funds on that debit card — but the company doesn’t care.
What if You Had the Misfortune to Be the Victim of a MoneyPak Scam?
If you suspect fraud or are the victim of a MoneyPak scam — don’t worry! You are neither the first nor the last person this has happened to. Your next step in this situation is to take action and get your revenge on MoneyPak.
