    People all over the nation are having the same problem. H&R Block wasn't expecting the big turnout. Yesterday their system went down and they are trying to fix the problems. Seems like the problems keep coming one after another.

    • I feel as frustrated as you do. I applied yesterday afternoon and got approved and was told that my money would be on the card in 15 min since I still had my same card from last year and guess what? 25 hours later still no money on my card. I tried calling customer service for the card and they charge $2.50 to speak to a live advisor, then you agree and get a busy signal and get charged for speaking to absolutely no one! I spoke with H & R bank and they told me that their system is backed up but they will have it loaded as soon as possible. I was so upset! I won't do this next year!! And as of 3:30 I still do not have the money on my card!
