A.Registration is highly recommended even if you are not planning to make online purchases. By registering your card, you are automatically provided with the full security benefits of the Visa Zero Liability policy*. This includes easy replacement of cards which are lost or stolen. Personalized cards purchased on the web have already been registered by the purchaser in the name that appears on the cardholder record.

A.If your purchase amount exceeds the card balance, we recommend that you tell the merchant you would like to conduct a split transaction. Please check with your merchant first to ensure they allow split transactions. If allowed, you must first tell the merchant to charge only the exact amount of funds available on your Gift Card. Once that is complete please arrange to pay the difference using another payment method. Some merchants may require payment for the remaining balance in cash. Restaurants, taxis, nail salons and beauty parlors may check to see whether your card has sufficient value for a tip of up to 20% over and above of the total bill.
If your card has been declined, you will need to check your available balance.

A. The Automated Fuel Dispensers create a preauthorization for $75 on the card, which is returned to the card after the transaction settles. If your card has less than $75 loaded onto it, the authorization will be denied for insufficient funds. Releasing an authorization can take as long as 30 business days. Your funds are withheld till then. To prevent this preauthorization, which will withhold your funds, the card should not be used at the gas pump cash register terminal.
A.To prevent the preauthorization on your card, please pay the cashier and advise the cashier of the available balance on your card and the amount for the gas you would like to purchase.
