The platform charges $2 for each ATM transaction, and in most cases, the machine will charge its own fee on top of that, so the fees can build up quickly if you make a lot of withdrawals. Even if you go to your local bank, you may still have to pay an ATM fee, as the Cash Card doesn’t belong to that bank.

Cash App users who have a qualifying direct deposit amount of $300 or more in their account within 31 days will be reimbursed for ATM fees for up to three ATM withdrawals per 31 days. The reimbursement only covers up to $7 in fees per withdrawal.

You can reload your Cash Card at these locations

To deposit cash into your Cash App account, visit a participating retailer. Cash App will give you a temporary barcode through the app. Tell a cashier you want to make a cash deposit in your Cash App account, and you give the cashier the money you want to deposit. The cashier will then scan the temporary barcode, which completes the deposit and puts the money in your account. The barcode expires within a few minutes, so it's best to have the cash you want to deposit ready.

There are certain limitations to reloading your Cash Card

Some Walmart, Walgreens, Target, and Dollar General locations offer Cash Card deposit services, but not all. In the app, you'll find a tracker of nearby locations that offer deposits, and it can direct you using Google or Apple Maps.

It's worth noting, however, that although the app may say a specific location provides the service, users on social media have claimed that this isn't always accurate. So, to check, it may be best to call the location before going.
