Pre-Paid Card Refills

Pre-paid cards can only be refilled up to the original denomination including any balance that remains on the card.  For example, a $120.00 card with a balance of $10.00 can have any amount up to $110.00 reloaded to the card. 

Please provide the maximum amount you would like to have reloaded to each pre-paid card.  An authorized hold will be placed on your credit card for that amount.  The available reload balance will be confirmed upon submission and the final charge will be reduced if the reload value is lower than the charge authorized. 

Example:  Request submitted to refill $120.00 card up to the full $120.00.  An authorized hold will be placed on your credit card for $120.00.  In processing the request, the card is found to have a remaining balance of $10.00, reducing the final charge to $110.00.  The authorized hold will reduce to $110.00 when converted to the final credit card charge.      


To refill cards, please enter your pre-paid card number below, followed by your desired refill maximum.  Your pre-paid card number is a five digit number found on the bottom of the card.  Please see the number in the yellow box on the pre-paid card example above for guidance in finding your pre-paid card number.  Please ensure numbers are entered accurately as refills will be applied to the card number as entered and cannot be reversed once applied.
