Know your balance - Most merchants cannot determine the balance on the card, so you will need to know your balance before you make a purchase. When you make a purchase, record it and deduct the amount from the balance immediately. To avoid declines, you can check balances by visiting myprepaidbalance or by calling the number on the back of the card.
Split payments - If there is not enough value on the card to pay for a purchase, you can pay the difference with a second form of payment. Let the cashier know that you'll be paying with two forms of payment and how much you will pay with each.
- Gas Stations - When paying at the pump, simply insert your card and follow the instructions. If the transaction is not completed, you may need to go inside and pay the attendant prior to pumping.
- Restaurants, bars, taxis, beauty and barber shops, and health and beauty spas - When using your Visa gift card at a merchant where a tip may be included, your transaction may be authorized for an additional 20% above your total bill. However, the tip amount is at your discretion. The actual amount processed to your card will not exceed the amount of the bill plus the tip added by you.
Returning a purchase - Remember to save your purchase receipt and the card even after you have spent the funds on the card in case there are returns. You may need to present your Visa gift card when you return the merchandise. The amount of the return will be credited back to the card typically within three to seven days.
Purchase declines - Make sure you have sufficient funds on the card for the full value of the purchase including tip. If your purchase is declined even though the card has sufficient funds, call the customer service number on the back of your card.
