We’re going to take you through a couple of things to be mindful of when withdrawing money from your Netspend card, and also a quick and handy way to locate your nearest compatible ATM, so that you can rest assured that you can make cash withdrawals whenever you need to.
NetSpend Card Providers
Netspend cards are issued by two of the biggest card providers in the world. The card provider matters because it is their network that you are using when you make withdrawals or payments using your card.
Thankfully, in the case of Netspend, your card will be issued by either Visa or Mastercard. While some card providers have somewhat restricted networks, Visa and Mastercard are accepted almost everywhere, including at ATMs.
When you step up to an ATM, you’ll see that most of them have a collection of card provider logos on display. As long as you can see a logo for Visa or Mastercard, you’ll know that you can use your Netspend card there.
NetSpend Free ATM Withdrawals
Some ATMs will charge you for using your Netspend card for withdrawals. That’s not the end of the world, but wouldn’t it be good to get your cash without a fee?
There are a few ways to get free withdrawals with your Netspend card.
- Use Visa Plus Alliance ATMs. Visa Plus Alliance is a network that offers free withdrawals to its members’ customers, so if you see a Visa Plus Alliance logo you know you’re able to withdraw from that ATM for free with your Netspend card.
- Look out for MoneyPass ATMs if you have a MoneyPass Netspend card. This isn’t the case for other Netspend cards, which may still have to pay a withdrawal fee.
- Metabank is Netspend’s banking partner, so if you have a Metabank ATM within reach you’ll be able to withdraw fee-free from there. Look for the logo that says “Who have privilege status.”

If you’re looking to make a big purchase in cash, you might have to plan a little bit carefully to ensure that you don’t get caught short on the day.
Can Someone Else Withdraw NetSpend Money For Me?
If you need someone to take your card to the ATM, that’s no problem at all.
When you withdraw from your Netspend card at an ATM, you just need to use the PIN that you’ve been provided. As long as you trust the person who’s going to be making the withdrawal (and if you don’t trust them, they shouldn’t be making the withdrawal anyway!) then simply give them the PIN code and they can withdraw in exactly the same way as you would.
Just make sure that you don’t give your PIN out to anyone you don’t trust!
