Uncle Russ was recently criticized by some financial bloggers concerning the influence of his Rushcard. In a recent interview, Mcswirler set the record straight on what the bloggers called a “predatory” card …More
Leave uncle russ alone lol

the Rushcard serves its purpose.
I JUST DON’T SEE HOW THE RUSH CARD GETS YOU CLOSER TO THE AMERICAN DREAM AS HE SAYS IN THE COMMERCIAL.
the only thing the Rush Card is good for is if u have a shared bank account with your wife and u don’t want her to see the hotel bills from u creepin out.
WIDE NOSE HAVIN… breathin all the whiteman’s air…. swindler, they think they’rre the best dancers, they eat all the chicken….. LOL! Dave chappelle’s genius for that one!
but OTR though, UNcle Russ is a businessman… plain and simple.

lol @ pm’s comment
Love me some Russell Simmons , but it’s a pre-paid visa, right?
I never understood the point of paying to spend your own money…. They lure you with the promise that if you keep in good standing, one day you can get an unsecured line, but that day never comes and you end up paying fees on your own shyt! If your credit is that jacked, you need debt consolidators of America, not a rushcard….
Lies Lies and more Lies!
Oooo, I can’t wait to get me one.
I got the rush card a few years back so I could online charges without my real bankcard. The charges are silly, and in the long run you end up paying more money to use the card then just going to the bank and opening up your own account, The customer service is beyond horrible. One young lady was smacking on gum while on the phone with me. I threw that card away asap after a few months. The card actually takes from the pooer!
i had one..it was pretty.
I wanna be russ’s bussitbaby…..
This website is racist against Black Men and Zannibal is a troll.
The Rush Card is for folks who can’t get a bank account. And more and more places don’t allow you to do things with out a credit card. So it’s more like a debit card.
So I see the purpose it serves. Problem is, if you have to have a Rush Card, you probably are having financial difficulty as it is. So it basically takes money for allowing you to have the use of your money. It seems to take advantage of people have don’t have a lot of options. But that’s the business. Either that or put it in shoe box.
I work @ a bank too and I know a girl named Shay. Dont be so naive. Banks practices are nefarious and you know it. Then again, maybe you dont…
I can’t help but laugh at all this.
The photo shows those white girls smirking at the cameras knowing they are about to stick that golden shovel in the black community and walk away with half of Unkle Russey’s cash.
Ok how about I an in Ohio had one and the bank they deal with was down and I could not get my money out of the account for 2 days couldnt even use it. It serves a purpose for some and then on the other hand I didnt like it when I was locked out of the ATM machine and this didnt happen just once so I closed it. They had their lines busy saying take a callback I satyed on hold for 1 hour to get an answer to the problem
RUSHCARD= DUMB $$ MOVE TO KEEP $$ COMING IN, SO RUSS CAN KEEP SWIRLING! YOU NEGROES ARE DUMB ENOUGH TO FALL FOR IT.

WE SHOULD ONLY SUPPORT THOSE, WHO SUPPORT US.
I ALSO AGREE WITH SHAY!!!
i dont have a rushcard but i have a greendot mastercard. u are charged to refill but not to use it. anyways.. would u rather be charged the regular interest rate (usually 14%- 28.5%) + a late fee of 25% + on top of that an overdraft fee of $25 per $100 owed? most ppl dont get it. i rather pay $5.95 to refill the card when i need it then to continuously let charges build.
If the rushcard, in fact, charges to refill, to use, and for inactivity… its probably not the best way to go but at least u have a bottom.
I really wish they would start teaching household economics in school. Kids coming out of school have no clue whatsoever about how to deal with banks,insurance companies,real estate companies, doctors and hospitals and most of all THE IRS!!!. They need to start teaching kids how credit and debit cards work so that they won’t destroy their credit before they leave high school. With more and more kids becoming computer savy,and online purchases becoming more and more frequent,we need to protect ourselves and our kids from predatory loan practices like the ones used by The RUSHCARD. We need to educate people,that there is no free lunch in America and everything comes with strings attached.
The Rush Card is the Greendot Card with RS “Brand” on it. The only thing these prepaid cards are good for is when you want to set up your unemployment account for direct deposit and you dont have a bank account, and you dont want to wait for the state to send you their own debit card.
And when you do direct deposit, you dont get charged for the money that is put on the card.
6am is right. Get a checking account with a Credit Union they have better rates and less fees than banks. I’ve had an account with my credit union for almost 10 years and have not been charged any service fees for maintaining the account. Russ claims his card will help build credit but I highly doubt it. This card is not credit. He may report info to the credit bureaus but since you are not actually being loaned money I don’t think this will impact your FICO credit score. Debit cards through banks and credit unions also do not impact credit scores.
Finally, when you get a checking account you have to pay attention to your balance so that you don’t go over. Open a savings account (at least $100) and get overdraft protection so that if you go past the balance in your checking account the bank will deducted it from your saving to cover yourself (my credit union does this for free)and if you are using your overdraft protection repeatedly then you know that you are spending too much and need to calm down.
