Terms and Conditions

"Agreement" means these Terms and Conditions that govern the PNC Bank Incentive Card. "Card" means the Incentive Card issued by PNC Bank, National Association. "You" and "Your" mean the person who has received the Card. "We", "Us", and "Our" mean PNC Bank, National Association. Our "Business Days" are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays.

Please make sure your Card is activated and sign it immediately. You may register your Card at pncprepaidcard.com.

By accepting and using the Card you agree to be bound by this Agreement.

Ownership and Use of the Card

The Card is and will remain our property. However, you will be solely and completely responsible for the possession, use and control of the Card. You must surrender the Card to us immediately upon request. If you overdraw the balance on the Card, you are responsible for that amount and must repay it to us. The Card cannot be reloaded with additional value.

Lost or Stolen Cards

Tell us AT ONCE if your Card and/or Personal Identification Number ("PIN") has been lost or stolen, or if you believe an electronic transaction has been, or will be, made without your permission. Calling us is the best way of keeping your possible losses to a minimum. If you tell us promptly after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card or PIN, you will not incur any loss or liability if someone used your Card or PIN for a purchase without your permission.

If you believe your Card and/or PIN has been lost or stolen: Call toll free 1-866-453-5071, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or write to: Cardholder Services, 8800 Tinicum Boulevard, 5th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19153.

Balance and Transaction History

Your Card balance and transaction history may be obtained on-line at www.pncprepaidcard.com or by calling 1-866-453-5071. You agree to regularly review your Card balance and transaction history to discover any unauthorized transactions or errors.

FDIC Insurance

The balance on the Card is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") to the maximum amount permitted by law.

Point-of-Sale Transactions

You, or someone you have authorized to use the Card by giving them the Card, may use your Card to purchase goods and services at merchants that have agreed to accept the Card and that are equipped with a point-of-sale terminal.

You may pay for purchases, either by signature or by PIN, anywhere Visa cards are accepted. For signature transactions, choose the "credit" payment option and sign the receipt; for PIN transactions, choose the "debit" payment option and enter your PIN. Please note that not all merchants will be able to accept both signature and PIN transactions.

If you use your Card to make a purchase greater than the balance on the Card, you must tell the merchant before completing the transaction. The merchant will require payment of the difference by another form of payment, such as cash, check, debit card, prepaid card or credit card. If a merchant processes a transaction for you in an amount that exceeds the balance on the Card, you must immediately mail a check to us at the address above in the amount of the difference between the amount of the purchase and the balance that was on your Card.

Certain types of merchants, such as restaurants, gas stations, car rental agencies, taxis, beauty and barber shops, health and beauty spas and hotels, obtain an authorization which may exceed the actual amount of your purchase resulting in a declined transaction.

Limitations on Use

If the Card is not personalized with your name, you may be unable to use it for transactions not made in person, e.g. by telephone or on the internet.

Use of your card is subject to the following limitations:
a. You may not make withdrawals at ATMs or at a bank teller.
b. You may not obtain cash back from merchants or financial institutions.
c. You may not deposit the value on the Card into your bank account.
d. You may not use the Card for betting, gambling, internet lottery or for any illegal purpose.
e. You may not make purchases that exceed the value on your Card unless you pay the merchant the balance through another means, such as by cash, check, debit card or credit card.
f. For security reasons, there may be other limits imposed on the use of the Card.

Foreign Transactions

The rate of exchange for international transactions using the Card is the wholesale market rate or government mandated rate in effect one day prior to the transaction date. The rate of exchange for international transactions using the Card will be calculated using a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date.

For each foreign transaction, you will be charged a foreign transaction fee equal to three percent (3%) of the transaction amount. This foreign transaction fee will be included in the amount charged to your Card. The fee will be charged whether or not there is a currency conversion in connection with the foreign transaction.

Card Expiration

The Card is valid until the entire value of the Card has been used or until the expiration date on the Card, whichever occurs first. Any funds remaining on the Card will expire on the expiration date. If we have your address on file, we will return to you any remaining balance on the Card after expiration. If we do not have your current address on file, then any remaining balance on the Card after expiration will be reported and remitted as unclaimed property in accordance with applicable law.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to ninety (90) calendar days to investigate your complaint or question.
