2.1 ATM Cash Deposits
With your PIN, you can use your Card to deposit cash into your Account at an in-network ATM. You can identify an in-network ATM by looking for the Allpoint logo on or near the ATM. You cannot make cash deposits at out-of-network ATMs.
2.2 ATM and Point-of-Sale PIN Withdrawals
With your PIN, you can use your Card to obtain cash from your Account up to the amount of your Available Balance at any ATM or any Point-of-Sale (“POS”) device in the United States that displays the Visa, VisaATM, Plus, Interlink, or Accel acceptance marks. Not all merchants will permit you to get cash back through their POS devices.
If you use an ATM, including a balance inquiry, you may be charged a fee by the ATM operator even if you do not complete a withdrawal. This ATM fee is a third-party fee assessed by the individual ATM operator only and is not assessed or controlled by us. This ATM fee amount will be charged to your Account in addition to any applicable fees disclosed in this Agreement or your Account Agreement.
2.3 Retail Card Purchases
You may use your Card to make purchases using your PIN at any merchant with a POS device anywhere that displays the Visa, VisaATM, Plus, Interlink, or Accel acceptance marks. You may also use your Card to make purchases without your PIN anywhere that Visa debit cards are accepted.
2.4 Split Transactions
You can instruct a merchant to charge your Card for part of a purchase and pay any remaining amount with cash or another card. This is called a “split transaction.” Some merchants do not permit split transactions. If you wish to conduct a split transaction, you must tell the merchant the exact amount you would like charged to your Card. If you fail to inform the merchant you would like to complete a split transaction and you do not have sufficient available funds in your Account to cover the entire purchase amount, your Card is likely to be declined.
2.5 Card-Not-Present Transactions
You may make retail card purchases without presenting your Card by providing information from your Card, such as transactions done by internet or telephone. Conducting transactions in this way has the same legal effect as if you used the Card itself. For security reasons, the amount or number of card-not-present transactions you are permitted to make may be limited.
2.6 Virtual Card Use
When you open an Account, you may also receive a virtual card (“Virtual Card”) represented by a 16-digit card number, a 3-digit card verification value (“CVV”) number, and an expiration date. The Virtual Card is separate from your physical Card and can be managed through the Online Services (see Section 1.3 of the Account Agreement). We will issue you a replacement Virtual Card when it expires. The Virtual Card accesses the available funds in your Account to make card-not-present transactions (see Section 2.6) anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted in the same way as your physical Card. The Virtual Card can also be added to a digital wallet (see Section 2.7) in the same way as your physical Card. Your use of the Virtual Card is subject to the terms of this Agreement, including transaction limitations, to the same extent as your physical Card
2.7 Use of the Card with Digital Wallets
A digital wallet (“Wallet”) provides another way for you to make purchases with your Card. A digital wallet is a service provided by another company (such as Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, etc.), that allows you to use your Card to pay for transactions where the Wallet is accepted. A Wallet may not be accepted at all places where your Card is otherwise accepted, and your Card may not be eligible for all the features and functionalities of the Wallet. Any use of your Card in or through the Wallet continues to be subject to all terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may terminate your access to or use of your Card with a Wallet at any time and for any reason, including if you violate any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement.
You can add or remove your Card from a Wallet by following the instructions provided by the Wallet provider. By doing this, you agree to allow us to share your Card information with the Wallet provider. You may be required to take additional steps to authenticate your identity before your Card is added to the Wallet. We do not charge you any additional fees for adding your Card to a Wallet or for using your Card in the Wallet. However, any fees and charges that would apply when you use your Card outside the Wallet will also apply when you use a Wallet to make purchases with your Card or otherwise access your Card. The Wallet provider and other third parties such as wireless companies or data service providers may charge you fees. The digital version of your Card in a Wallet may, in our sole discretion, be automatically updated or upgraded without notice to you.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY ARE WE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES OR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF A WALLET, YOUR USE OF THE CARD OR VIRTUAL CARD IN CONNECTION WITH A WALLET, OR A MOBILE DEVICE.
If you use a Wallet, you should protect your Wallet and your mobile device as you would your Card. If your Wallet or mobile device is compromised, lost or stolen, you should also consider your Card lost or stolen and notify us immediately. Please see Section 7 for instructions for reporting a lost or stolen Card.
If you have any questions, disputes, or complaints about a Wallet, contact the Wallet provider using the information given to you by the provider.
2.8 Foreign Transactions
Charges from foreign merchants and financial institutions may be made in a foreign currency. We will bill you in U.S. dollars based on the exchange rate on the day we settle the transaction, plus any special currency exchanges charges that may be imposed by us, the Visa network and/or by any third-party used to complete the transaction.
The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date. This rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. The conversion rate may be different from the rate in effect on the date of your transaction and the date it is posted to your Account.
Regardless of whether the transaction is made in foreign currency or in U.S. dollars, additional fees may apply to all international transactions using the Card. Please refer to our current fee schedule for more information about our fees.
2.9 Card Authorization Holds
When you use your Card to purchase goods or services or to obtain cash from a merchant, the merchant may request preauthorization (“Card Authorization”) for the transaction. If the merchant makes such a request and there are sufficient available funds in your Account, we will approve the transaction and place a temporary hold on the funds in your Account. This hold will reduce the Available Balance in your Account. The amount of this temporary hold will usually be the amount of the Card Authorization. The hold will remain on your Account until the merchant sends the final amount of the transaction to us and requests payment (“Settlement”). In most cases, if the merchant does not request Settlement or is delayed in requesting settlement, the hold will automatically be removed after three (3) days. However, for transactions with certain merchants, such as hotels, the hold may remain on your account up to seven (7) days.
Please note that the merchant controls the timing of both the Card Authorization and Settlement. This means that a merchant may initiate Settlement after Card Authorization hold has already been removed. If the hold is removed and you spend the funds in your Account before Settlement, it may cause your Account to overdraw. In addition, the Card Authorization amount that the merchant requests may be different than the Settlement amount. It is therefore important that you keep track of your transactions and your Account. We cannot stop a Card transaction once we have approved a Card Authorization and you will be responsible for repaying any negative balance that may occur in your Account.
