Green Dot / prepaid visa card

1 Bonita Springs, FL, United States

I am giving the card as an anonymous gift to a niece traveling to Europe this summer.

I purchased the card today at Wal-Mart. I asked for, and it was verified, a rep in the store customer service department told me the card is good internationally, and the rep verified this with the store manager.

I purchased the card, loaded $500 and took it home. I have not opened and removed the card from the sealed packaging since I think the card holder is suppose to do that.

Reading the instructions on the outside package, it states "The card inside this package can only be used to make purchases in the US and cannot be used to get cash". To add to the confusion, on the other side of the instructions flap, it states you have a "foreign transactions fee - 3% of transaction amount".

So, which is it? Is this card good "everywhere Visa debit is accepted"? Please let me know as soon as possible. I purchased the card from Wal-Mart #05347 in Fort Myers, Florida, at 8:07:37 am, today on 12/27/17.
