Can you have 2 cards on Venmo?

Answered by James Kissner

It is possible to have 2 cards on Venmo. However, it is important to note that Venmo has a limit on the number of cards a user can add to their account. Currently, Venmo allows users to have up to 4 active or deleted cards in their account at any given time over a 6 month rolling period.

Having multiple cards linked to your Venmo account can be convenient for managing your finances and making payments. It provides flexibility and allows you to choose different payment methods depending on your needs.

To add a card to your Venmo account, you can follow these steps:
1. Open the Venmo app on your mobile device or visit the Venmo website.
2. Log in to your account using your credentials.
3. Once you are logged in, navigate to the “Settings” tab. This can usually be found by tapping on your profile picture or the three horizontal lines in the top-left corner of the app.
4. In the settings menu, you should find an option called “Payment Methods” or “Cards.” Tap on this option.
5. On the payment methods or cards screen, you will have the option to add a new card. Tap on the “Add Card” or similar button.
6. Follow the prompts to enter the required information, such as your card number, expiration date, and security code.
7. Once you have entered the necessary details, tap on the “Save” or “Add Card” button to add the card to your Venmo account.

It is worth mentioning that adding multiple cards to your Venmo account does not necessarily mean that you can use all of them for transactions. When making a payment, you can choose which card to use from the available options. This allows you to select the most appropriate card for each transaction, depending on factors such as rewards, limits, or personal preferences.

However, it is important to be aware of the limit set by Venmo. If you already have 4 active or deleted cards in your account, you will need to remove one of them before you can add a new card. To remove a card, you can follow these steps:
1. Go to the “Settings” tab in the Venmo app or website.
2. Find the “Payment Methods” or “Cards” option and tap on it.
3. Locate the card you want to remove and tap on it.
4. On the card details screen, you should see an option to remove or delete the card. Tap on this option.
5. Confirm your decision to remove the card when prompted.

By following these steps, you can manage the cards linked to your Venmo account and ensure that you stay within the limit set by Venmo. It is important to keep track of the number of cards you have added and remove any unnecessary or inactive cards to make room for new ones if needed.

In my personal experience, I have found it convenient to have multiple cards linked to my Venmo account. It allows me to choose the most suitable payment method for each transaction, whether it’s a credit card, debit card, or even a prepaid card. Having the flexibility to switch between cards gives me peace of mind knowing that I can always make payments without any hassle.

While Venmo does have a limit on the number of cards you can add to your account, having 2 cards is definitely possible and can be beneficial for managing your finances efficiently.
