Tips: Please don’t use any numbers indicated on the back of your Netspend prepaid debit card.
Some articles may state that your Netspend routing number can be found on the back of your card.
However, Netspend’s team has confirmed this information is incorrect (see conversation screenshots below).
We also do not recommend you use any Netspend routing numbers you find listed online.
Unlike Citibank and Wells Fargo, Netspend does not list their routing numbers on their website, and the data is therefore unreliable.
Plus, like Chime, Netspend is partnered with more than one bank, including The Bankcorp Bank, Metabank, N.A.
The banks will differ depending on whether you have a Netspend Prepaid Visa Card or a Netspend Prepaid Mastercard; therefore, the routing numbers will vary per customer.

Your Netspend account number will be available at the same place as your routing number.
Follow the same steps, either text DIRECT to 22622, log into your Netspend account or contact them directly.
