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 Gift Card is not registered in advance, these merchants might decline the purchase even though are sufficient funds in the Gift Card Account.

You may use the Gift Card to purchase or lease goods or services everywhere Mastercard, Maestro cards or NYCE cards are accepted, as long as you do not exceed the available value of the Gift Card Account. Some merchants do not allow cardholders to conduct split transactions where you would use the Gift 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 Gift Card Account to the Gift 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 Gift Card, the Gift Card is likely to be declined.
If you use the Gift 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 Gift Card is declined, even though there are sufficient funds available, you should pay for your purchase inside with the cashier. If you use the Gift 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) 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 Gift Card. If you authorize a transaction and then fail to make a 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 use the 16-digit Gift Card number without presenting the Gift Card (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Gift Card itself. For security reasons, we may limit the amount or number of transactions you can make on the Gift Card. The Gift Card cannot be redeemed for cash. You may not use the Gift Card for gambling or any illegal transaction.
Each time you use the Gift Card, you authorize us to reduce the value available in the Gift Card Account by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount in the Gift Card Account through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the available balance of the funds available on the Gift Card, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees.
Returns and Refunds
If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with the Gift Card, you agree to accept credits to the Gift Card for such refunds and agree to the refund policy of that merchant. The Issuer is not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspects of goods or services that you purchase from others with a Gift Card. All such disputes must be addressed and handled directly with the merchant from whom those goods or services were provided.
Gift Card Replacement
If you need to replace the Gift Card for any reason, please contact us at 1-866-208-3282 to request a replacement Gift Card. You will be required to provide personal information which may include the 16-digit Gift Card number, full name, transaction history, copies of accepted identification, etc. There is a fee for replacing a lost, stolen or damaged Gift Card, see the Fee Schedule for details.
The Gift Card will expire no sooner than five (5) years from the date of purchase. The funds on the Gift Card do not expire. You will not be able to use the Gift Card after the expiration date; however, you may request a replacement Gift Card at no cost to you by following the procedures in the paragraph labeled “Gift Card Replacement”. If you need a replacement Gift Card for any reason other than due to the Gift Card’s expiration, you may request one at any time, however, there is a Replacement Card Fee. For information about the fee, see the section labeled “Fee Schedule”.
Transactions Made In Foreign Currencies
If you make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which the Gift Card was issued, the amount deducted from the funds will be converted by Mastercard International Incorporated into an amount in the currency of the Gift Card. The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by Mastercard International Incorporated from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate Mastercard International Incorporated 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 Gift Card was issued, the Issuer may assess a foreign currency conversion fee of 2% of the transaction amount and will retain this amount as compensation for its services. Transactions made outside of 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 should get a receipt at the time you make a transaction using the Gift Card. You agree to retain, verify, and reconcile your transactions and receipts.
Gift Card Account Balance/Transaction History
You are responsible for keeping track of the available balance of the Gift Card Account. Merchants generally will not be able to determine the available balance. It’s important to know your available balance before making any transaction. You may obtain information about the amount of money remaining in the Gift Card Account by calling 1-866-208-3282. This information, along with a sixty (60) day history of Gift Card Account transactions, is also available online at www.ppdmoney.com. You have a right to obtain a sixty (60) day written history of Gift Card Account transactions by calling 1-866-208-3282 or by writing to Cardholder Services, PO Box 5017; Sioux Falls, SD 57117-5017.
Statements in electronic format will be made available free of charge at www.PpdMoney.com during each month in which a transaction occurs. You will not automatically receive paper statements.
All fee amounts will be withdrawn from the Gift Card Account and will be assessed as long as there is a remaining balance on the Gift Card Account, except where prohibited by law. Any time the remaining Gift Card Account balance is less than the fee amount being assessed, the balance of the Gift Card Account will be applied to the fee amount resulting in a zero balance on the Gift Card Account.
$4.95 (per month after 12 consecutive months of inactivity. This fee will be applied to any remaining balance.)
Replacement Card Fee:
(SVC CHG REPLACE CARD)
$15.00* (per Card; when Card is reissued or replaced for any reason, except expiration.)

Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
Contact us at once if you believe the Gift Card has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way to minimize your possible losses. If you believe the Gift Card has been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from the Gift Card Account without your permission, call us at 1-866-208-3282. Under Mastercard Rules, you will not be held responsible for unauthorized transactions if you used reasonable care in protecting the Gift Card from loss or theft, and you promptly reported to us when you knew the Mastercard Gift Card 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).
If the Gift Card has been lost or stolen, we will close the Gift Card Account to keep losses down and will send a replacement Gift Card. There is a fee for replacing the Gift Card. For information about the fee, see the section labeled “Fee Schedule”.
