At the time that I enrolled, I thought the Eppicard was a wonderful idea.
Thus far, I have been woefully disappointed.
I had to settle for email notifications instead.
Not really a deal breaker.
That came today.
Mostly, I swipe my Eppicard at the counter to make point-of-sale purchases and I’ve never bothered to use the cash back option.
Today, however, I wanted to take the money out in cash so off I went to find the nearest Wachovia.
No line. Excellent.
Uh oh, problem.
You see, it turns out that Eppicard is in the business of nickeling and diming the clients and charged me $0.65 for each balance inquiry that I performed via the atm.
The teller promptly apologized and informed me that it was not Wachovia that charges, but indeed Eppicard.
She also informed me that they also charge if you do a phone balance inquiry as well.
Neither situation I had ever encountered before because I check my balance primarily online on all of my accounts.
So, bye-bye Eppicard.
I’m contacting Child Support Enforcement to get the forms to have my child support sent directly to my regular bank account.
If you have a bank account, especially one with an atm or debit card, don’t bother using the Eppicard.
