Additional Information

RushCard has advised BBB that they experienced a significant service interruption on Monday, October 12, 2015 related to a processor conversion.  This conversion took longer than expected and after their systems came back up there were  delays in posting direct deposits, the cardholder website was intermittently unavailable and some information on the website, including balance information, was incorrect.  In addition, a small subset of cardholders were locked out of their accounts.  The system is back up and running and cardholders have access to their funds and account information.  A small number of accounts are still in an inactive state which can be corrected when the cardholder contacts RushCard. The business has also announced a Fee Holiday beginning November 1, 2015 and continuing through February 29, 2016.    BBB will continue to monitor the situation and this review will be updated as necessary.

If you are having problems with faxed documents reaching the business, Unirush has requested that documents be faxed to (513)247-2725. Please include your first and last name, e-mail address and phone number in the attention area.

In July 2015 BBB Cincinnati began receiving complaints concerning a product called Rush Card Live. BBB contacted Unirush regarding this new business name and learned that Rush Card Live is a separate pre paid card program which is offered by the Green Dot Corporation, headquartered in Pasadena, California. Complaints or other matters concerning Rush Card Live transactions are handled by the San Jose, California BBB. Please click here for the BBB Business Review for Green Dot. 

The Rush Card is issued by MetaBank of South Dakota.   Unirush has advised BBB that they handle all Rushcard customer service issues and the inclusion of the Metabank reference on their web site is informational and not an additional contact for Ruchcard concerns.  A separate BBB Business Review on MetaBank is available.
