What fees are associated with my card?
There are no purchase fees, usage fee or inactivity fees associated with your card. The only fee associated with your card is for the replacement of a lost or stolen card.
When does my card expire?
The expiration date is on the front of your card in month/year format. If your card has expired and there are still funds available, contact 1.866.913.0886 for a replacement card. There is no fee to replace an expired card.
What should I do with my gift card when the value is depleted?
Destroy the Card. (Before destroying the card, make sure that you won’t need the card in the future for store returns.) The value is limited only to the original amount of money placed on the card.
What if I need to return an item purchased with the card?
No problem. Depending on the merchant, refunds may be credited to your card or issued as a store credit or as cash.
What if the purchase price is greater than the value on my card?
Spending is limited to your card balance. If you wish to make a purchase greater than the balance, you can use a second payment method – cash, check or credit card – to cover the difference. Simply advise the cashier in advance which method you would be using.
What if my purchase is denied?
Your card balance is probably less than the purchase price. Ask the merchant to deduct the specific amount remaining on your card and then use a second form of payment for the purchase balance. At gas stations, tell the attendant how much gas (in dollars) you would like and give your card to the attendant to process. At restaurants or other “tip-oriented” places, make sure your card balance is enough to cover the bill plus the 20%. When authorizing purchases, most restaurants will factor an automatic tip.
