Netspend's Anniversary

We've come a long way, thanks to you

To our customers:

This year, we celebrate 20 years of business at Netspend. In reaching this milestone anniversary, we reflect on our 20 years of providing individuals, and families, with safe, convenient and practical financial options. Some of you have been with us since the beginning, and some of you have only recently joined our cardholder community.  As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how thankful we are at Netspend for all of our customers and for their business, from long-time cardholders to our newer individuals and their families.

Where it all began

It all started with two brothers in a small basement in Austin, Texas. Roy and Bertrand Sosa wanted to provide prepaid cards to people who didn’t have traditional bank accounts, so they could make purchases without having to carry around cash.* Over the years, features like Direct Deposit, Mobile Check Load, and Anytime Alerts were added. We’ve always wanted to find a way to make managing money easier, and we’re always looking for new ways to serve the most important part of our company: our customers.

Here are some highlights from the past 20 years:
