Card Description And How the Card Works.
The Card is intended to be given away as a payment option by a Vending Operator to consumers to be used in a specific set of vending machines. The person to whom the Card is given should register the Card immediately or return it to the issuing vending operator. The Card is a proprietary form of a The Pepi Companies, reloadable, stored value Card. The Card is not linked to, nor does it access in any way, any checking or other accounts at any bank. The Card is not a credit card. The Card can have value added to it anytime or after all of the existing value has been used. You acknowledge and agree that the amount available on the Card is limited to the prepaid U.S. dollar value loaded on the Card. The Card is issued by a vending operator, not directly from USA Technologies, Inc. The Card does have a Security Code, but is not enabled for PIN transactions and may not be used to obtain cash at ATM machines. The Card cannot be used for cash advances and cannot be exchanged for cash at stores or other financial institutions.
Balance on the Card.
The value of the funds available on the Card at any given time is referred to in this Agreement as the "Balance." No interest will be paid on the Card Balance. The balance is not FDIC insured. The Balance is limited $2000 (two thousand). The Balance will decrease each time the Card is used to make an authorized transaction by the full amount of each purchase, or (when and if available) the use of sufficient loyalty points to cover the cost of said transaction. The amount of funds shown on the Consumer Web Portal records will determine the Balance. Once the Balance is depleted and you no longer wish to use the Card, the Card is no longer valid and you agree (a) not to use the Card; and (b) to cut it in half and discard it. Whenever you use the Card to make an authorized transaction, you are authorizing us to reduce the Card Balance by an amount equal to the Transaction Amount. At the time of each purchase, the Merchant where the transaction is made ("Merchant") will obtain an approval for the Transaction Amount to ensure adequate funds are available. You agree to keep track of the Balance on your Card by using our website.
