Cash App is a great way to send and receive money, but what if you run out of funds on your Cash App card?

In this article, we'll show you how and where to reload your Cash App card in just a few minutes!

How Can You Load Your Cash App Card?

You can add money to your Cash App card by depositing physical money in a participating store. To find the closest deposit location click on the $ icon in the bottom left-hand corner and then on Paper Money. Once you're at the store click on Show Barcode and ask the cashier to scan the Barcode.

Where Can You Load Your Cash App Card?

You can add physical money to your Cash App account and Cash App card at the following stores:

  • Walgreens
  • 7-Eleven
  • Walmart
  • Family Dollar
  • Sheetz
  • KwikTrip
  • Speedway
  • H-E-B
  • GoMart
  • Rite Aid
  • StopNGo
  • Thorntons
  • Dollar General

How to Load Your Cash App Card at a Store: (Step-By-Step)

  1. Click on the $ icon (the one that shows your balance) in the bottom left-hand corner of your Cash App home screen.
  2. Scroll down and click on Paper Money – Deposit at a nearby location.
  3. A map will open up showing you the closest deposit locations.
  4. Once you're at the store tell the cashier you want to add money to your Cash App account/card.
  5. Click on the Show Barcode button at the bottom of the map.
  6. Let the cashier scan the barcode and hand them the money you want to deposit.

The cashier might ask you to swipe or insert your Cash App card, tell them to scan the barcode from your phone instead. Swiping or inserting your Cash App card won't work.

In my experience, most stores will ask for your ID so don't forget to bring some form of verification with you when adding money to your Cash App account/card.

Are There Fees for Loading Your Cash App Card at a Store?

There is a $1 fee for every deposit you make at a store.

Take this into consideration when adding money to your Cash App card, if you want to add $10 to your Cash App card you will have to give the cashier $11. 

The $1 fee will show up as a pending transaction on your Cash App account until the deposit goes through, which can take up to 10 minutes.

How Much Money Can You Add to Your Cash App Card?

You must deposit at least $5 per deposit, the maximum you can add is $500 per deposit.

You can deposit up to $1000 every 7 days, and up to $4000 every 30 days. The seven or thirty-day timeframes are based on a rolling time frame, this means that they start at the time when you make a deposit, and not at the start of the week or month.

Cash App will notify you if you hit a deposit limit.

To avoid any issues, I recommend spacing out your deposits, for example, if you want to add $2000 to your Cash App account/card in one week, make four separate deposits over 2 weeks of $500 each rather than one deposit of $2000.

This will help you stay within the deposit limits and avoid any potential issues.

How Long Does It Take for the Money to Be Credited?

It usually only takes a few minutes for the money to be credited to your Cash App account/card.

You can check the status of your deposit by clicking on the Activity tab (the clock icon) on your Cash App home screen.

If you have any problems or questions when trying to load your Cash App card feel free to reach out to Cash App support, you can find them by clicking on the profile icon in the top right-hand corner and then on Cash Support.

Even though I have never had an issue receiving money credited to my account, I suggest you keep the receipt.  This way you can show it to Cash App support if there are any problems.

How to Open the Barcode on Cash App:

You can open the barcode by clicking on the $ icon (the one that shows your balance) in the bottom left-hand corner of your Cash App home screen.

Scroll down and click on Paper Money – Deposit at a nearby location.

The barcode will be at the bottom of the map.

Can You Deposit Money to Your Cash App Card at an ATM?

No, you can not deposit money to your Cash App card at ATM machines.

However, you can withdraw money from your Cash App card at almost all ATM machines. 

What Other Ways Are There to Add Money to Your Cash App Card?

There are 3 different ways to add money to your Cash App card. 

  • Transfer money from your bank account to your Cash App account (this will automatically be added to your Cash App card).
  • Deposit physical money at a store that allows you to do so (as explained above).
  • Have someone send you money through Cash App.

Are My Cash App Balance and Cash App Card Balance the Same?

Yes, the balance on your Cash App account and your Cash App card are the same. Any money you have in your Cash App account can be spent using your Cash App card.

How to Check Your Cash App Balance:

Checking your balance is easy, from the main screen (the one with your profile picture) click on the $ sign in the bottom left-hand corner. This will show you your balance at the top of the screen.

You can also call their support and ask them what your current balance is. We've written a full guide on how to check your Cash App card balance by calling Cash App.

How Do I Reload My Cash App Card Without a Bank Account?

The only way to reload your Cash App without a bank account is to deposit physical money at a store that allows you to do so.

Can I Add Cash to My Cash App Card Without a Debit Card?

Yes, you can add cash to your Cash App card without a debit card.  You can either deposit money at a store that allows you to do so, or have someone send you money through Cash App.

To deposit money at a store, you will need to show the cashier your barcode (you can find this by clicking on the $ icon in the bottom left-hand corner of your Cash App home screen and scrolling down to Paper Money – Deposit at a nearby location). The cashier will scan your barcode and add the amount of money you want to deposit to your Cash App card.

What if I Need Help Reloading My Cash App Card?

If you have any questions or need help reloading your Cash App card, feel free to contact Cash App support.

You can reach them by going to the app's main screen and clicking on the profile icon in the top left-hand corner. Then scroll down and click on Cash Support.

I hope this article helped, happy depositing!
