    I purchased a BALANCED FINANCIAL card at Walgreens for my daughter at Christmas. I need to send her money each month and would like to use this card. Here is my question….is there a way for me to reload that card on a monthly basis WITHOUT physically having the card. Obviously, there is not a problem with sharing the security activation numbers.
