Make purchases greater than your balance
If your purchase amount is greater than the balance on your card, some merchants may allow you to use a second form of payment—cash, check, or credit card—to cover the difference. Simply tell the cashier in advance how much to deduct from your Visa Prepaid card and how much you will pay with the second payment method. Learn more.
When you return an item, you’ll need the Visa Prepaid card you used to make the purchase. If the merchant’s return policy allows it, the merchant will credit the amount back to your card. It usually takes three to seven business days for the credit to take effect. Learn more.
