IMPACT BANK Visa Gift Cards

(1) Where can I use my Impact Bank Visa card?

Your card may be used anywhere debit cards are accepted. The brand marks on your card indicate where the card is accepted and typically will be displayed on the merchant’s store front. Your card can also be used for
online and telephone purchases once the card has been registered.

(2) How do I use my card?

At point-of-sale, use your Gift Card as a signature based transaction. Please select the “credit” option. If you select “debit”, the terminal will prompt you for a PIN which is not available with the gift card.

 

(3) How can I add funds to my card?

Gift Cards are disposable one time use cards. Therefore additional funds cannot be added to the card. 

(4) What happens if my card is declined at the point-of-sale?

A couple different scenarios may have caused your transaction to be declined.

 1. The merchant does not accept the association type

 2. The merchant selected ‘debit’ instead of ‘credit’ to run the transaction.

 3. The merchant selected ‘gift’ instead of ‘credit’ to run the transaction.

 4. The merchant attempted to process the purchase for a greater amount than what  is available on the card.

If this happens, you should ask the merchant to run a “split-tender” transaction which will allow you to pay a portion of your purchase with your card and the remaining balance with another form of payment. 

(5) What is a split tender transaction and how does it work?

If you wish to use your Gift Card to purchase an item for more than the available funds, depending on the Merchant’s policy, you may be able to use your Gift Card toward a portion of the final purchase price, and then
use another form of payment to pay the remaining balance. This is called a “split tender” transaction because you would be splitting the final transaction amount between your Gift Card and another form of payment.  Before you request a “split tender” transaction, you will need to know your card value. Then, you must ask the  Merchant if two forms of payment will be accepted. If the Merchant agrees, request that the Gift Card value be used as the first form of payment, and then use another form of funds to pay the remaining balance. Some retailers will only allow a “split tender” transaction if the second form of payment is cash or check. Online and most mail order merchants do not permit “split tender” transactions. We do not guarantee that the Merchant will accept two forms of payment, such as two prepaid cards.
