Gift Card Frequently Asked Questions

When a restaurant or other tip-oriented merchant (e.g., spas, hair salons, etc.) requests approval to complete your transaction, the merchant will often add a fixed percentage (approximately 20%) to the amount reflected on the bill presented prior to payment. This additional amount is meant to cover the tip they expect to receive.

As a result of this increased authorization request, your gift card may be declined if you have insufficient funds to cover the amount requested for approval. To avoid declines, you can ask the merchant to authorize a specific dollar amount. We do not guarantee that the merchant will fulfill this request.

Yes. If you do, we recommend paying inside, not at the pump. If you pay at the pump, the terminal may be pre-programmed to seek a pre-authorization for $75, and this amount could increase from time to time.

The pre-authorization seeks to confirm you have sufficient funds on the card to pay for an average gas purchase. If you have insufficient funds on your gift card to cover the pre-authorization, your attempt will be declined. If you have sufficient available funds on your gift card to cover the pre-authorization, your transaction at the pump will continue. Once again, to avoid a decline of your gift card, we recommend that you prepay for your gasoline inside the station.

There is a $2.50 charge for each gift card. You can have the fee deducted from savings or checking. Putting your own design on the card using Picture Perfect® is free.
