I was told by the person who prepared my taxes that I would receive my tax refund "faster" if I used the H&R Block Emerald Card and that all I would have to do is take the card into my bank and tell the teller to transfer the money from my card to my checking acct. Found out by accident that not only will it cost me $25.00 to do so BUT if I wanted to do it free of charge, I'd have to fill out a form and fax it back to them requesting the xfer.

Then wait 5-7 days for the friggen money to be available to xfer.

***! I could have simply requested to have the money direct deposited to my checking account! They are basically holding your money hostage unless you use their card for purchases and request cashback all over the place.

DON'T USE IT! IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!

I found out the hard way that when I took card to bank to deposit money for every transfer they charged $35. I could have used the ATM and been charged less.

stay away from this H&R Block Emerald card scam they take money from you faster than your Banks do. There are so many hidden fees associated with this card they say there are free ATMs but there are not you will get charged $3 per transaction even though you use a free ATM this is the biggest scam I have ever run into

Anyone with common sense knows that HRBlock does not control tax refunds the IRS does!

I just found out a couple months ago about a card you order online called a bluebird card. It doesn't have all the fees that all other cards have and I believe can be used pretty much anywhere these other cards can so you might want to check it out

so did the funds actually get put on your Emerald card quicker? If you received the funds on your card a lot quicker then you normally would have to wait you got what you wanted and what do you expect, its a bank, of course there going to apply fees for a money transfer.

sounds like someone was trying to cut corners and didn't look ahead.
