While Entrust Financial Credit Union has enjoyed providing you the option of purchasing prepaid cards, we have made the business decision to discontinue offering the service at this time. We are, however, investigating other options for these cards that are cost effective for you. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Using a Visa Gift Card
Understanding your Gift Card balance is important. Cards can be used when making purchases from any merchant that accepts Visa debit cards. However, some card issuers place authorization tolerances on transactions at particular types of merchants, such as restaurants, hotels, cruise lines, mail order, and car rentals. Authorization tolerances add a percentage or fixed dollar amount to the amount of the transaction when it is submitted for approval. Their purpose is to cover any tip/gratuity that you may add to the purchase after the approval or to ensure that adequate funds are available to cover the final purchase. For example, you have dinner at a restaurant and the total bill is $25.00. You have a $25.00 Visa Gift Card that you would like to use and this card has a 20% authorization tolerance on restaurants. If the restaurant tries to run the card for $25.00 it will be denied because 20% is added to the transaction amount and there were insufficient funds to cover $30.00 ($25.00 x 20% = $5.00 + $25.00 = $30.00).
