If you’re stopping by the CVS to pick up a prescription or anything else you’d need from the pharmacy, it may be useful to get your financial responsibilities out of the way at the same time. I’ll discuss some of the benefits of adding money to your card at CVS compared to using your bank account and mention some of the other places you can load up your Cash App card.
So how do you add money to a Cash App Card at CVS? To add money to your Cash App card at CVS, just walk over to the cashier with the amount of money that you’d like to add to your card in cash. You may have to pay a fee to add the money, and you’ll be subject to max limits on the amount of money you can load in at once.
Throughout today’s guide, I’ll go through each of the required steps to add money to your Cash App card during your visits to CVS.
How to Add Money to Cash App Card at CVS
CVS is one of many pharmacies that will allow you to add money directly to your Cash App card from their cash register. The reason why pharmacies so frequently allow you to deposit money directly into your Cash App card is because they are typically already set up to handle transactions like these.
This is because pharmacies have traditionally sold prepaid credit cards, so they’ve needed the systems to refill these cards so that they can support their customers. Since refilling a Cash App card requires the same systems, CVS joins a host of other pharmacies as one of the main places where you can refill your card.
Putting money in your card is relatively simple, but there are a few steps that you’ll have to follow. If you intend to refill your Cash App card, bring cash with you to the CVS along with your Cash App card. When you walk into the store, head directly to the cashier to refill your card.
When you reach the cashier, let them politely know that you intend to refill your Cash App card. You’ll have to hand them the money that you intend to add to the card, as well as the card itself. Keep in mind that CVS charges a fee to refill your Cash App card, so be prepared to pay this when you head in.
Benefits of Adding Money to Your Cash App Card at CVS
There are several advantages to choosing to add your money to your Cash App card directly from a CVS instead of using one of the many other methods. When you load up a Cash App card at CVS, you can typically be sure that the money will be available on the card as soon as possible.
Contrast this with when you try to transfer the money to your Cash App card through your bank account or debit card. This can sometimes take a little longer for the money to transfer, as it may not be able to go through to your Cash App if it is a weekend or banking holiday.
Also, not every user may wish to link their bank account to their Cash App account so that they can verify it. One of the most effective ways to add money to your Cash App card without using your bank account is to transfer the cash directly to the card from a store like CVS or Walgreens.
Another advantage is that CVS may be part of your daily routine, especially if you have prescriptions that you need to get fulfilled regularly. If this is the case, you’ll likely already be at CVS frequently throughout the month, making it easier to keep your Cash App account topped up.
Always Check Your Cash App After Adding Money to it at CVS
Whenever you get money added to your Cash App card at a store like CVS, you’ll want to be sure that the cashier hands you a receipt of the transaction. Just like any financial transaction, you’ll want to keep a paper trail of it to ensure that you’re covered in case of any errors when the money goes through.
While it is rare, there have been times when people have paid cash to add it to their Cash App card and the money never shows up. When this happens, the receipt that you have of the transaction is one of the only ways to tell whether or not you ever exchanged your money in the first place.
After getting back home from the CVS, the first thing that you’ll want to do is check and see if the money has arrived. If it’s not in your account already, don’t panic. There are times when the transfer can take up to 24 hours to be approved. Be sure to check your email for any notifications from Cash App.
Possibilities include your account being frozen while it’s flagged for review or a simple hiccup in Cash App’s systems. If your account isn’t flagged and the transfer is taking longer than 24 hours, then we’d recommend getting in touch with Cash App’s customer service to figure out what’s going on with your money.
Where Else Can You Load Money into Your Cash App Card?
CVS is only one of many stores that will allow you to add money to your Cash App card, and it isn’t even the only pharmacy.
Places like Rite-Aid and Walgreens will also allow you to refill your Cash App card for the same reasons that CVS will.
Here are some of the stores that will let you load money into your Cash App card:
- Dollar General
However, pharmacies aren’t your only option if you wish to top up your Cash App card. You can also head to stores like Dollar General or Walmart to do so.
Always be sure to call the store before heading to refill your card in case they don’t have the required systems to let you do so.
