Registering The Card
You are encouraged to register this Card in your own name by calling our Phone Number or by visiting the Website promptly upon receipt. Registering the Card can help establish who the rightful Cardholder is in the event the Card is lost, stolen or destroyed. Additionally, some online, mail and telephone order merchants may require that certain personal information, such as the Cardholder’s name and address, be on file with the Issuer prior to approving purchases. If the Card is not registered in advance, these merchants might decline the purchase even though are sufficient funds on the Card.
By registering the Card, you represent and warrant to us that: (i) you are a U.S. citizen or legal alien residing in the fifty (50) states of the United States or the District of Columbia; and (ii) you have provided us with a verifiable U.S. street address (not a P.O. Box).

You should not write or keep the PIN with the Card. Never share the PIN with anyone. When entering the PIN, be sure it cannot be observed by others and do not enter the PIN into any terminal that appears to be modified or suspicious. If you believe anyone has gained unauthorized access to the PIN, contact Customer Service immediately.
You are responsible for all authorized transactions initiated and fees incurred by use of the Card. If you permit another person to have access to the Card or Card number, we will treat this as if you have authorized such use, and you will be liable for all transactions and fees incurred by those persons.

For Card balance information, please call our Phone Number or visit the Website.
Some merchants do not allow cardholders to conduct split transactions where you use the Card as partial payment for goods and services and pay the remainder of the balance with another form of legal tender. If you wish to conduct a split transaction and it is permitted by the merchant, you must tell the merchant to charge only the exact amount of funds available on the Card. You must then arrange to pay the difference using another payment method. Some merchants may require payment for the remaining balance in cash. If you fail to inform the merchant that you would like to complete a split transaction prior to swiping the Card, the Card is likely to be declined.
If you use the 16-digit Card number without presenting the Card (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you had used the Card itself. Card restrictions include, but are not limited to: restricted geographic or merchant locations where there is a higher risk of fraud or illegal activity; restrictions to comply with laws or prevent our liability; and other restrictions to prevent fraud and other losses. For security reasons, we may, with or without prior notice, limit the type, amount, or number of transactions you can make on the Card. You may not use the Card for any illegal transaction. We may increase, reduce, cancel, or suspend any of the restrictions or add new ones at any time. The Card cannot be redeemed for cash.
Each time you use the Card, you authorize us to reduce the available value of the Card by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount on the Card through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the available balance of funds on the Card, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and any fees, if applicable.
All fee amounts will be withdrawn from the Card and will be assessed as long as there is a remaining balance on the Card, except where prohibited by law. Any time the remaining Card balance is less than the fee amount being assessed, the balance of the Card will be applied to the fee amount resulting in a zero (or negative) balance on the Card.
Replacement Card Fee: (SVC CHG REPLACE CARD / SVC CHG REISSUED):
$5.00 per Card; when the Card is reissued or replaced for any reason, except Card expiration, expired Cards will not be replaced
Foreign Currency Conversion Fee: (SVC CHG INTRNTL TRAN)
3% of the transaction amount
The Card cannot be used for preauthorized direct debits from merchants, Internet service or other utility service providers, or recurring transactions or subscriptions. If presented for payment, preauthorized direct debits will be declined and payment to the merchant or provider will not be made. You are not authorized to provide the combination of the Issuer’s bank routing number and the Card number to anyone.
If you use the Card at an automated fuel dispenser (“pay at the pump”), the transaction may be preauthorized for an amount up to $100.00 or more. If the Card is declined, even though there are sufficient funds available, you should pay for your purchase inside with the cashier. If you use the Card at a restaurant, a hotel, for a car rental purchase, or for similar purchases, the transaction may be preauthorized for the purchase amount plus up to 20% or more to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover tips or incidental expenses incurred. A preauthorization will place a “hold” on those available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. Once the final payment amount is received, the preauthorized amount on hold will be removed. It may take up to seven (7) business days for the hold to be removed. During the hold period, you will not have access to the preauthorized amount.
You do not have the right to stop payment on any purchase or payment transaction originated by use of the Card. If you authorize a transaction and then fail to make the purchase of that item as planned, the approval may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to thirty (30) days. All transactions relating to car rentals may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to sixty (60) days.
If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with the Card, you agree to accept credits to the Card for such refunds and agree to the refund policy of that merchant. Any Merchant disputes, returns, or refunds must be addressed and handled directly with the merchant from whom the transaction posted, or those goods or services were provided.
The funds on the Card expire when the Card expires. You should use the funds on the Card before Card expiration, as the funds will not be made available to you after the Card expires. We are not responsible for replacing funds that may have expired. Replacement Cards, if available, are subject to the policies of the Program Sponsor.
The Card will expire no sooner than the date listed on the front of the Card. If you need to replace the Card for any reason, please contact Customer Service to request a replacement Card. You will be required to provide personal information which may include the 16-digit Card number, your full name, transaction history, copies of accepted identification, etc. There is a fee for replacing a lost, stolen or damaged Card, see the “Fee Schedule” for details.
You may use the Card to purchase or lease goods or services everywhere Mastercard, Maestro® cards, STAR® cards, and NYCE® cards are accepted as long as you do not exceed the available value of the Card, and other restrictions (see examples described below) do not apply. If you make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which the Card was issued, the amount deducted from the funds will be converted by Mastercard into an amount in the currency of the Card. The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by Mastercard from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate Mastercard itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. If you make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which the Card was issued, the Issuer may assess a foreign currency conversion fee of 3% of the transaction amount and will retain this amount as compensation for its services. Transactions made outside the fifty (50) U.S. states and the District of Columbia are also subject to this conversion fee even if they are completed in U.S. currency.
You are responsible for keeping track of the available balance of the Card. Merchants generally will not be able to determine the available balance. It’s important to know the available balance before making any transaction. You may obtain information about the amount of money remaining on the Card, as well as a history of transactions, by calling our Phone Number or visiting the Website.
We may disclose information to third parties about the Card or the transactions you make:
- Where it is necessary for completing transactions;
- In order to verify the existence and condition of the Card for a third party, such as a merchant;
- In order to comply with government agency, court order, or other legal or administrative reporting requirements;
- If you consent by giving us your written permission;
- To our employees, auditors, affiliates, service providers, or attorneys as needed; or
- As otherwise necessary to fulfill our obligations under this Agreement.
We are not responsible for the quality, safety, legality, or any other aspect of any goods or services you purchase with the Card. Further, we will not be liable for the failure to complete a transaction made with the Card, for instance:
- If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough funds available on the Card to complete the transaction;
- If a merchant refuses to accept the Card;
- If an electronic terminal where you are making a transaction does not operate properly, and you knew about the problem when you initiated the transaction;
- If access to the Card has been blocked after you reported the Card lost or stolen;
- If there is a hold or the funds are subject to legal or administrative process or other encumbrance restricting their use;
- If we have reason to believe the requested transaction is unauthorized;
- If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, or computer or communication failure) prevent the completion of the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; or
- For any other exception stated in our Agreement with you.
In the case of lost or stolen cards, or a discrepancy or questions about the Card transaction(s), contact Customer Service as soon as you can. You must contact us no later than sixty (60) calendar days after we posted the transaction(s) to the Card. If the Card has been lost or stolen, we may close the Card to keep losses down. If the Card is registered and has a balance remaining, we will send a replacement Card.
Under Mastercard Rules, you will not be held responsible for unauthorized transactions if you used reasonable care in protecting the Card from loss or theft and you promptly reported to us when you knew the Mastercard was lost or stolen. Zero Liability does not apply to Mastercard payment cards used for commercial purposes or anonymous prepaid cards (until such time as the identity of the cardholder has been registered with us).

We do not waive our rights by delaying or failing to exercise them at any time.

This Agreement will be governed by the law of the State of South Dakotaexcept to the extent governed by federal law.

You will be notified of any change in the manner provided by applicable law prior to the effective date of the change.
