IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW CARD ACCOUNT
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card Account. What this means for you: When you open a Card Account we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us reasonably to verify your identity. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
The same identification verification requirements may apply to each Secondary Cardholder, if any are designated by you.
If we are unable to verify your identity, you may be permitted to use your Card until the balance in your Card Account has been spent; we may choose to issue you a refund check; or we may require further investigation, and in that case, you may not be able to reload your Card Account. Once you have successfully completed registration, you may request a personalized Card. Any secondary cardholder may also be required to provide the same cardholder information before they will receive their Card.
Activate Your Card
You must activate your Card before it can be used. You may activate your Card by visiting www.paypower.com/meijer or calling (888) 206-4386. However, until you successfully register your Card Account, you will have no ATM or cash access; you will not be able to perform Card to Card transfers; you will not be able to use the bill payment service; and you will not be able to reload your Card Account.
To register your Card Account, visit www.paypower.com/meijer or call (888) 206-4386. You will need to provide personal information in order to verify your identity. After you successfully register your Card Account, we will send your personalized Card to you by mail.
When your personalized Card arrives, you will need to activate it as well. You may do so by visiting www.paypower.com/meijer or calling (888) 206-4386.
Personal Identification Number
You may be given the opportunity to receive a Personal Identification Number (“PIN”) with your Card Account when you activate your Card. You will also be given the opportunity to receive a PIN when you register your Card if you do not already have a PIN. You should not write or keep your PIN with your Card. Never share your PIN with anyone. When entering your PIN, be sure it cannot be observed by others and do not enter your PIN into any terminal that appears to be modified or suspicious. If you believe that anyone has gained unauthorized access to your PIN, you should advise us immediately following the procedures in the paragraph labeled “Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers.”
Authorized Card Users
You are responsible for all authorized transactions initiated and fees incurred by use of your Card. If you permit another person to have access to your 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. You are wholly responsible for the use of each Card according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Once you successfully register your Card Account you may request an additional Card for another person. The maximum number of additional Cards permitted is one (1). You must notify us to revoke permission for any person you previously authorized to use the Card. If you notify us to revoke another person’s use of the Card, we may cancel your Card and issue a new Card with a different number. You remain liable for any and all usage of an additional Card you authorize.
Your Representations and Warranties
By activating the Card or by retaining, using or authorizing the use of the Card, you represent and warrant to us that: (i) you are at least 18 years of age ( or older if you reside in a state where the majority age is older); (ii) you are a U.S. citizen or legal alien residing in the United States or the District of Columbia; (iii) if you have registered your Card Account, you have provided us with a verifiable U.S. street address (not a P.O. Box); (iv) the personal information that you provide to us in connection with the Card is true, correct and complete; (v) you received a copy of this Agreement and agree to be bound by and to comply with its terms; and (vi) you accept the Card.
Before you register your Card you may not use your Card to obtain cash from an Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) or any Point-of-Sale (“POS”) device, or by any other means. However, once you have successfully registered your Card Account and have provided your personal information, you may use your Card to obtain cash from an ATM, POS device, as permissible by a merchant, or through a participating bank (over the counter withdrawal) that bears the Visa® or Interlink® Acceptance Mark. All ATM transactions are treated as cash withdrawal transactions. The maximum cumulative amount that may be withdrawn from an ATM per day is $500.00. In addition to our limits, an ATM owner or operator may impose additional withdrawal limits. The maximum amount you may obtain through a participating bank (over the counter withdrawal) per day is $500.00. Any funds withdrawn from a POS device will be subject to the maximum amount that can be spent on your Card per day.
Loading Your Card Account
You may add funds to your Card Account, called “value loading,” when you purchase your card. The minimum amount of the initial value load is $20.00 The maximum amount of the initial value load is $500.00. After you successfully register your Card Account (including identity verification), you may value reload your Card Account at any time.
You may value reload your Card Account (i) by transferring money to your Card Account from a “REloadit™ Pack,” issued by Blackhawk Network California, Inc.; (ii) via cash using the Visa ReadyLink network at selected retailers; (iii) via direct deposit from your employer or payer; or (iv) by such other methods as we may offer you from time to time. If you value reload by transferring money to your Card Account from a REloadit Pack, there is no set minimum or maximum value reload amount; however, there are minimum and maximum amounts that may be loaded onto a Pack for transfer to your Card Account (load values can range from a minimum of $20.00 to a maximum of $950.00, but these amounts may vary by Pack and by retailer). If you value reload with cash using the Visa ReadyLink network, the minimum value reload will be $20.00, and the maximum value reload will be $500.00; however, individual retailers may set higher minimums and/or lower maximums. If you value reload via direct deposit, there is no set minimum or maximum amount. There is no maximum number of times you may value reload your Card Account per day; however, the maximum dollar amount of value reloads you may make to your Card Account in one day is $2,500.00. We will accept direct deposits larger than $2,500.00, but any direct deposit value reloaded to your Card Account will count against the $2,500.00 daily limit. You may find reload locations and instructions by visiting www.reloadit.com or calling (888) 206-4386.
You generally will have access to your funds within one (1) hour after reloading; if your funds are not available after that time, please call us at (888) 206-4386. Personal checks, cashiers checks, and money orders sent to the Issuer are not an acceptable form of loading. All checks and money orders sent to the Issuer for Card Account loading will be returned unless the full amount may be applied towards a negative balance, in which case the check or money order may or may not be loaded to the Card Account at the discretion of the Issuer.
The only federal payments that may be deposited to this Card Account are federal payments for the benefit of the primary cardholder. If you have questions about this requirement, please call (888) 206-4386.
Direct Deposit to Your Card Account
You may have direct deposits made to your Card Account. If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your Card Account at least once every sixty (60) days from the same person or company, you can call us at (888) 206-4386 to find out whether or not the deposit has been made. Your prepaid Card Account and associated direct deposit account number cannot be used for preauthorized direct debits from merchants or from utility or Internet service providers. If presented for payment, these preauthorized direct debits will be declined and your payment to the merchant or provider will not be processed. The bank routing number and direct deposit account number are for the purpose of initiating direct deposits to your prepaid Card Account only. You are not authorized to provide this bank routing number and direct deposit account number to anyone other than your employer or payer.
Using Your Card/Features
The maximum value of your Card Account is restricted to $10,000.00.
You may use your Card to purchase or lease good or services everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted as long as you do not exceed the value available in your Card Account. Some merchants do not allow cardholders to conduct split transactions, where you use the Card as partial payment for good 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 in the Card Account to 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 you Card, your Card is likely to be declined.
If you use your card at an authorized fuel dispense (“Pay at the Pump”), the merchant may preauthorize the transaction amount up to $125.00 or more. If you card is declined, even though you have sufficient funds available, pay for your purchase inside with the cashier. If you use your Card at a restaurant, a hotel, for car rental purchase, or for similar purchases, the merchant may preauthorize the transaction amount for the purchase amount plus up to 20% or more to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover tips or incidental expenses incurred. Any preauthorization amount will place a “hold” on your available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. Once the final payment amount is received, the preauthorization 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 preauthorization amount.
If you use your Card number without presenting your Card (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Card itself. For security reasons, we may limit the amount or number of transactions you can make on your Card. Your Card cannot be redeemed for cash. You may not use your Card for online gambling or any illegal transaction.
Each time you use your Card, you authorize us to reduce the value available in your Card Account by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount in your Card Account through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available in your Card Account, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees.
You do not have the right to stop payment on any purchase or payment transaction originated by use of your Card. With the exception of bill payment transactions (see “Paying Third Party Bills” below), you may not make preauthorized regular payments from your Card Account. 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.
Paying Third Party Bills
You may pay a wide variety of bills online using your Card Account. To do so, you must first register for the bill pay service by visiting www.paypower.com/meijer. As part of your registration, you will be asked to agree electronically to the terms and conditions of the service. You can view the terms and conditions for the bill pay service at www.paypower.com/meijer.
(i) Right To Stop Payment and Procedure for Doing So. If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your Card Account, you can stop any of these payments. Call us at (888) 206-4386 or write us at Customer Service, Department 6220, 5918 Stoneridge Mall Road, Pleasanton CA 94588 in time for us to receive your request three (3) business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within fourteen (14) days after you call. To the extent permitted by law, we may charge you for each stop payment order you give (see Fee Schedule below for amount).
(ii) Notice of Varying Amounts. If these regular payments may vary in amount, either we (if you ask us to make recurring payments through the bill pay service) or the person you are going to pay (if you ask them to take money from your Card Account on a recurring basis) will tell you, ten (10) days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. (You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set).
(iii) Liability for Failure to Stop Payment of Preauthorized Transfer. If you order us to stop one of these payments three (3) business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
Returns and Refunds
If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with your Card, you agree to accept credits to your Card Account for such refunds and agree to the refund policy of that merchant. The Issuer and Program Manager are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspects of goods or services that you purchase from others with a Card. All such disputes must be addressed and handled directly with the merchant from whom those goods or services were provided.
If you need to replace your Card for any reason, please contact us at (888) 206-4386 to request a replacement Card. You will be required to provide personal information which may include your Card number, full name, transaction history, and other relevant information. There is a fee for replacing your Card.
Your Card will expire when the “valid thru” date printed on the front of your Card has passed. The funds on the Card do not expire. You will not be able to use your Card after the expiration date; however, you may request a replacement Card at no cost to you by following the procedures in the paragraph labeled “Card Replacement.”
Transactions Made In Foreign Currencies
If you obtain your funds or make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which your Card Account was issued, the amount deducted from your funds will be converted by Visa into an amount in the currency of your Card Account. 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, which may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. If you obtain your funds or make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which your Card Account 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 50 United 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 your Card. You agree to retain, verify, and reconcile your transactions and receipts.
Card Account Balance/Periodic Statements
You are responsible for keeping track of your Card Account available balance. Merchants generally will not be able to determine your available balance. It is important to know your available balance before making any transaction. You may obtain information about the amount of money you have remaining in your Card Account by calling (888) 206-4386. This information, along with a sixty (60) day history of Card Account transactions, is also available online at www.paypower.com/meijer. You also have a right to obtain a sixty (60) day written history of Card Account transactions by calling (888) 206-4386 or by writing us at Customer Service, Department 6220, 5918 Stoneridge Mall Road, Pleasanton CA 94588. However, there is a fee for this service. You will not automatically receive paper statements.
All fee amounts will be withdrawn from your Card Account and will be assessed as long as there is a remaining balance on your Card Account, except where prohibited by law. Any time your remaining Card Account balance is less than the fee amount being assessed, the balance of your Card Account will be applied to the fee amount, resulting in a negative balance.

(3) In order to comply with government agency, court order, or other legal or administrative reporting requirements;
(4) If you consent by giving us your written permission;
(5) To our employees, auditors, affiliates, service providers, or attorneys as needed; or
(6) Otherwise as necessary to fulfill our obligations under this Agreement.
Our Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions
If we do not properly complete a transaction from your Card on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
(1) If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough funds available on your Card to complete the transaction;
(2) If a merchant refuses to accept your Card;
(3) If an ATM where you are making a cash withdrawal does not have enough cash;
(4) 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;
(5) If access to your Card Account has been blocked after you reported your Card lost or stolen;
(6) If there is a hold or your funds are subject to legal or administrative process or other encumbrance restricting their use;
(7) If we have reason to believe the requested transaction is unauthorized;
(8) 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
(9) Any other exception stated in our Agreement with you.
Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
Contact us at once if you believe your Card has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way to minimize your possible losses. If you believe your Card has been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Card Account without your permission, call us (888) 206-4386. Under Visa U.S.A. Inc. Operating Regulations, your liability for unauthorized Visa debit transactions on your Card Account is $0.00 if you notify us within two (2) business days and you are not grossly negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your Card. This reduced liability does not apply to PIN transactions not processed by Visa or ATM cash withdrawals. If you notify us within two (2) business days of any unauthorized transactions, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your Card without your permission. If you do not notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your Card without your permission if you had promptly notified us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Also, if you become aware of and/or your statement shows transactions that you did not make, notify us at once following the procedures stated in the paragraph labeled “Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors”. If you do not notify us in writing within one hundred twenty (120) days after the date the transactions was debited or credited to your Card account, you may not get back any value you lost after the one hundred twenty (120) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the value if you had notified us in time and you are grossly negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your Card. If your Card has been lost or stolen, we may close your Card Account to keep losses down.
If you notify us orally, we may require you to give written notice within ten (10) business days. We reserve the right to conduct an investigation into the validity of any claim of unauthorized use. You agree to cooperate with any investigation we may make.
Other Miscellaneous Terms
Your Card and your obligations under this Agreement may not be assigned. We may assign or transfer our rights under this Agreement. Use of your Card is subject to all applicable rules and customs of any clearinghouse or other association involved in transactions. We do not waive our rights by delaying or failing to exercise them at any time. If any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable under any rule, law, or regulation of any governmental agency, local, state, or federal, the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement shall not be affected. This Agreement will be governed by the law of the State of Delaware except to the extent governed by federal law.
Amendment and Cancellation
We may amend or change the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time. You will be notified of any change in the manner provided by applicable law prior to the effective date of the change. However, if the change is made for security purposes, we can implement such change without prior notice. We may cancel or suspend your Card or this Agreement at any time for any reason (for example, if we suspect fraud or unauthorized activity on your Card Account). You may cancel this Agreement by returning the Card to us. Your cancellation of this Agreement will not affect any of our rights or your obligations arising under this Agreement prior to termination.
In the event that your Card Account is cancelled, closed, or terminated for any reason and you have registered your Card with your personal information, you may request the unused balance to be returned to you via a check to the mailing address we have in our records. There is a fee for this service. See the fee schedule above. We reserve the right to refuse to return an unused balance if the balance is less than the fee for sending a check.
