Can I deposit a check on my Netspend card at ATM

Quick Answer: No, you cannot deposit a check on your Netspend card at an ATM.

ATMs don’t cash checks. You can deposit a check at some ATMs, but you don’t have access to that money until the bank opens the ATM, removes the deposits, and processes the check.

Otherwise, people would simply put blank pieces of paper in the envelope and say it was a deposit.

If it’s an ATM at your own bank that allows deposits, and you have enough money in your own bank account to cover the amount of the check, you could deposit the check and then make a withdrawal.

However, if it’s a 3rd party check drawn from a different bank, your bank will likely put a “hold” on the money for some time to make sure the check is good. Accepting third-party checks is not a good idea at any time.
