More Information

Where you can use your MasterCard Prepaid Cards

MasterCard® Prepaid cards work just like other kinds of MasterCard cards, and are accepted at over 35 million locations around the world and online. To use a MasterCard Prepaid Gift Card for web purchases, you may first need to visit the website listed on the back of your card to register your address.

How MasterCard Prepaid Cards work

MasterCard Prepaid Cards work just like MasterCard credit cards for making purchases, except they use funds that have already been loaded into the account.

Be sure to know your card balance before you shop. You can visit the website or call the phone number listed on the back of your card to find out your balance.

If your purchase amount is greater than the balance on your card, your transaction may get declined. Many stores will allow you to split the purchase between your MasterCard Prepaid Card and other forms of payment if you let them know how much you wish to pay using the card before you swipe it.

Here are some things to be aware of when using your MasterCard Prepaid card in certain situations:

  • Installment or Recurring Payments: You may use your Prepaid Card to make an individual payment, but you may not be able to register your Prepaid Card for regular or recurring payments like your mobile phone or cable bill.
  • Gratuities/Tips: Some restaurants and other service providers will add up to 20% to your bill when they request authorization for a purchase to cover any tip you might add. As a result, your Prepaid Card may get unexpectedly declined.
  • Car Rental and Hotels: A car rental agency or hotel may accept your Prepaid Card for payment of a rental vehicle or the room, but not for the initial reservation.
  • Petroleum: A gas station may only accept your Prepaid Card inside the store but not at the pump.

Where to go for help

For assistance with your MasterCard Prepaid card, please contact the card issuer by visiting the web site or calling the number printed on the back of your card. Note: some issuers charge a fee for live-agent telephone support; if you are unsure, check the Cardholder Agreement that accompanied your Prepaid card.
