Activating Your Card
To use your Card you must activate the Card and setup a four (4) digit Personal Identification Number ("PIN") for your Card by calling us at 800-538-7670 and following the telephone prompts. You will be asked to enter your Card number and (the three (3) digit CVV code on the back of the Card). You will be allowed to select your own 4-digit PIN at this time. Once you have completed the activation process your card will be ready for use. If you do not complete all steps your card will be rejected when presented at the time of a purchase.
Registering Your Card
Once your card has been activated, it is important that you register your Card at johnsonbank.com/giftcard. This will allow you to track activity and check balances on your Card. Registration also allows us to access information on your Card in the event your Card is lost or stolen, if you contact us to resolve a potential error on your Card, or if you contact us for assistance with your Card. Card registration is also required to have the Card covered by FDIC Insurance. If your Card is not registered, these services may not be available to you.
How to Use Your Johnson Bank Gift Card
Your Gift Card is ready to use anywhere Visa is accepted with certain exceptions:
If your purchase exceeds the amount of funds available on the Gift Card, you may ask the merchant to split the transaction. You may pay the remaining amount of the purchase with another form of payment.
This Card is a prepaid card access device that can be used at retail establishments that have agreed to accept Visa-branded credit or debit cards, with certain exceptions as described above. Additional value cannot be loaded to the Card. The Card remains the property of Johnson Bank and we may suspend, revoke, or terminate the ability to process Card transactions at any time at our sole discretion without cause or notice. Such a suspension or revocation will not result in a forfeiture of any balances on the Card, which will continue to belong to the Cardholder. The value of all Cards is held in an aggregate account.
You may use your Card to pay for purchases at retail establishments that have agreed to accept Visa-branded credit or debit cards and are equipped with a point-of-sale terminal that can process such transactions. You may be asked to provide an acceptable form of identification in order to make a purchase or perform a transaction using the Card. If you allow someone else to use your Card, we will consider you as having authorized this person to use your Card and you will be responsible for any transactions initiated by such person with your Card. Certain retail establishments such as restaurants may authorize amounts in excess of the actual purchase amount to cover tips, gratuities and other charges. The addition of this percentage may result in a decline of your Card even though sufficient funds are available. The time frame for releasing amounts authorized in excess of the final purchase amount is dependent on the speed at which the merchant processes the final transaction. If a purchase exceeds the available balance on your Card, ask the merchant if you may use the funds on your Card toward a portion of the purchase price and use another form of payment for the remaining amount of the purchase price. Use of your Card for any activities that appear to be a violation of the law may result in the transaction not being authorized.
Using your Card to purchase goods and services from merchants constitutes a demand against and withdrawal from the remaining value on your Card. You are not allowed to exceed the balance of the funds available on your Card. Not all transactions are processed in real time which may result in a delay of these transactions being reflected in the balance of the funds available on your Card. You may use your Card only in the manner and for the purposes authorized by this Agreement. You should receive a receipt for each transaction completed with your Card. You should retain your receipt(s) for your records. You do not have the right to stop payment on any point-of-sale transaction originated by the use of your Card. You are responsible for all transactions initiated by the use of your Card.
If you make an international transaction using your Card, Visa will convert any foreign currency into U.S. dollars using an exchange rate for the applicable central processing date that is either: the date that is selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets (which rate may vary from the rate Visa receives) or the government-mandated rate. An International Service Assessment Fee of 1% on all international transactions (excluding those from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands) will be assessed if the transaction involves a currency conversion. This fee will be passed on to you.
