The Visa Gift card is a prepaid card welcome everywhere Visa cards are accepted. Visa Gift cards are loaded with a set amount of funds and can be used for multiple purchases for as long as value remains on the card. Giving a Visa Gift card puts the power of choice in the hands of your friends and family.

The activation process is determined by the provider of your card, so you will need to follow the instructions provided with your card. Many Visa Gift cards are activated automatically upon purchase and may be used immediately. However, some Visa Gift cards must be activated by the recipient before they can be used.

Look for the initial balance in the card materials that come with your card at the time you receive it. These card materials provide important information, including the terms and conditions for using your card, so please read them carefully before using the card. If your card does not come with these materials, you should contact the financial institution that issued the card. Most issuers also offer web site access, a toll-free number, or instructions on the back of the card.

If a merchant cancels a purchase transaction for you, it may take three to seven business days for the cancellation to show up on your Visa Gift card record and for the funds to be credited to your card and available for use. Check the balance on your card, either online or by phone, to see when your cancelled purchase transaction has been processed. Refer to the back of your card for the web site address/phone number of the financial institution that issued your card.

Yes. You can use your Visa Gift card anywhere Visa cards are accepted. Just always ensure that the remaining balance on your card will cover the amount of your planned purchases. If the remaining balance doesn't cover the entire transaction, let the merchant know how much funds you have remaining. The merchant may split the transaction and allow you to pay for part of the purchase using your Gift card, and then the remaining part of the purchase with another form of payment such as credit, debit or cash.

In case you need to return any items purchased with your Visa Gift card, be sure to save your Visa Gift card even after the balance is depleted. You will be asked to present this card when returning items purchased with the card. If the merchant's return policy allows for refunds, the value of the returned goods will be credited back to the card within three to seven business days of the return.

First, make sure the gift card has been activated. This should have happened at the time of the sale. You might have received a gift receipt or a card holder confirming its activated status, but you can also call the phone number on the back of the card.

Next, check the card's balance. This is especially important if you have already used it, as gift cards often have activation fees. That $50 card may actually have a $49 balance. You'll need to know the exact dollar and cent number, so don't skip this step.

Quick tip: You can also do this on the Amazon Shopping app. Once you log in, select the profile tab, then choose Your Account followed by Your Payments. From there, you can tap +Add next to Cards and Accounts to add your Visa gift card as a payment option.

It's kind of annoying that you can't use a gift card along with another mode of payment, right? To get around this you can use your card's balance to buy an Amazon gift card that you give to yourself, and that can be used for anything on the site and combined freely with another payment method.

Quick tip: As the holidays approach, you might want to consider using Visa or Amazon gift cards to help pay for gifts. If that's something that appeals to you, you can make an Amazon wish list to help keep track of gift ideas.

The Visa gift card is a prepaid card - not a credit card. You determine how much money you want to put on the card at the time of purchase. You can buy a Visa gift card for yourself or for someone else. Once you have purchased a Visa gift card, the cardholder can use it to make purchases anywhere Visa Debit is accepted.

Unlike store gift cards or gift certificates, the Visa gift card enables you to choose where you spend the money on your card. You are not limited to just one store. You can use it at any store or online retailer that accepts Visa Debit.

Your information protects your rights with the card if it is lost or stolen before the recipient receives it. It also enables the gift card recipient to call a Customer Service Representative and validate his/her identity as the gift card receiver.

By saving your profile, you can purchase additional Visa gift cards in the future without having to enter your account information again. In addition, you can sign in and view your purchase history.

You can activate your Visa gift card one of two ways: Call 866.543.9161 (you can also find this on the activation sticker of your Visa gift card).

You can also sign in using your Visa gift card number and click Activate My Card.

Yes, you can still use your Visa gift card even though your name doesn't appear on the card. Make sure you sign the back of your Visa gift card because a retailer will validate your identity by comparing your signature on the back of your Visa gift card with the one on your receipt.

For purchases that are higher than your Visa gift card balance, use your gift card along with another form of payment. If you attempt to make a purchase for more than the amount available on the card without another form of payment, the transaction will be declined.

Pending transactions are authorized transactions with a hold for the purchase amount until the transaction clears. Posted transactions are purchases that have cleared on your card. There are some pending transactions that are more or less than the amount you actually spent. Some retailers place a pre-authorization amount to ensure the account is active and that you have enough money to cover the purchase. Once the transaction posts to your account, the pending transaction will be removed within a few business days, and you can use the funds again.

*The Mastercard Wildlife Impact gift card is issued by Sunrise Banks N.A., Member FDIC, pursuant to a license from Mastercard International Incorporated. This card may be used everywhere Debit Mastercard is accepted. Mastercard is a registered trademark, and the circles design is a trademark, of Mastercard International Incorporated. Use of this card constitutes acceptance of the terms and conditions stated in the Cardholder Agreement.

The trick to get around this is to use your Mastercard, Visa, or Amex gift card to buy an Amazon gift card. With Amazon gift cards, the full amount can be credited to your purchase, and any additional funds required can be paid with your regular credit card.

Just wanted to say a huge Thanks to Josh for his clear and accurate instructions for doing the above.I had tried it before using my own resources, without success. I am thrilled that it worked with your instructions, since I want to buy a special gift on Amazon, and adding the Mastercard gift card balances will REALLY HELP.Thanks again for the wonderful service you are providing.Gratefully,Mary Taddeo 041b061a72
