Frequently Asked Questions


1. Where can I use this card? You can use your card to purchase goods and services at any merchant that accepts signature-based Visa debit cards. 2. Why is the word Debit on the front of my card? In response to Visa regulations, issuers are required to label non-credit products with the term Debit after January 1, 2004. Although your card may have the word debit on it, please remember to select Credit and sign for purchases at the point of sale in order to indicate you authorize your transaction. 3. Where can I withdraw cash? You can use your card to withdraw cash from any ATM that bears the Visa logo. Please note that there will be a service fee for a withdrawal. There is an ATM withdrawal fee of $1.50 per domestic transaction and $3.50 for each international transaction. Additional fees may apply at non-Citibank ATMs. This fee, along with any other fees assessed by the ATM machine associated with your ATM transaction, is automatically deducted from your balance. To find the nearest Citibank ATM, visit www.prepaid.citi.com/unicity and click Access $. For a complete list of fees associated with your card, please refer to the Disclosures and Fees table below. 4. What are the fees associated with my card? For a complete list of fees associated with your card, please refer to the Disclosures and Fees table below. 5. Can I have an account that has a billing address outside of the United States? No, not at this time. 6. What is an Account Maintenance fee? Your account may be subject to a monthly Account Maintenance Fee if it is inactive. An inactive account is defined as an account that meets all three of the following criteria: (1) Your account has been open for at least six months; (2) you have not added funds or received a payment; and (3) you have not made a transaction that resulted in journal activity with the account in a 90-day period. Please see the Disclosures and Fees table below for more details. 7. How is my card different than a credit card? A credit card gives you a line of credit, which you have to pay back. Conversely, this card is a debit card that is pre-loaded with your money. You can spend or withdraw the funds as you see fit, but you cant spend more than your current available card balance. Your card does not require a credit check and will not affect your credit history. 8. Will I receive a separate billing statement for my card? All transactions that you make with your card are available online. When you want to view your transaction activity, simply log in to your account on the website (www.prepaid.citi.com/unicity). If you are not able to access your statement online, please contact Citi Prepaid Customer Service at 8004221992 to find out if other statement options are available for your card.

Managing Your Card


1. How do I activate my card? You do not need to activate your card; it is ready to use when you receive it in the mail. If you would like to activate ATM functionality, please call the number on the sticker on your card to set your PIN.

Shopping With Your Card


1. Can I use my card to purchase goods and services? You can use your card to purchase goods and services at any merchant that accepts Visa. To complete a transaction, select Credit as your payment option to indicate you will sign to authorize your transaction. If the funds are available in your account, the purchase will be approved. 2. How do I use my card at self-swipe merchant locations? At certain merchant locations (example: grocery stores), the merchant may require that you swipe your card yourself. On these occasions, make sure that you choose Credit as the payment option. Even though your card is a signature-based debit card, the processing network requires you to select Credit. 3. Why does my card not work when I try to pay at the pump? To protect cardholders, we have disabled all cards at self-service pay-at-the-pump gas stations. Please note that while you cant pay at the pump, you can still use your card at these locations by asking the attendant to process your card. 4. How do I shop online using my card? Shopping online is easy. Just follow these simple steps: (1) Select the items you want to buy. (2) Proceed to check out. (3) Select Visa as your payment option. (4) Enter your 16-digit card number, the 3-digit Security Code (the last three digits printed in the signature panel on the back of your card), and your expiration date. (5) Enter the billing address that is associated with your card.

5. When shopping online, can I split a payment between my card and a credit card? You may split payments if the specific online merchant permits it. Please note, however, that most online stores only accept one credit or debit/check card for payment. And since your card is processed like a Visa transaction, you likely wont be able to enter more than one card type to complete the transaction. 6. Can I spend more than my available balance? No. You will not be able to spend more than your available balance. The merchant will decline your transaction. 7. What if the amount of my purchase is more than my available balance? In this case, your purchase will be declined. 8. Why did my balance only decrease by $1 after I made a purchase at a merchant? Often, online merchants do not immediately charge customers for the full amount of the purchase. Many will authorize (temporarily deduct) $1 from your balance for verification purposes. This is a routine practice that affects all standard credit and debit card users. In most cases, merchants who operate in this manner will debit your balance for the full amount of the purchase and return the authorized $1 to your balance. The merchant may take up to 30 days to return these funds to your account. 9. What if a transaction is not approved by an online store? In the unlikely event that your transaction is declined by an online store, please make sure that you have done the following: Verified that the merchant accepts signature-based debit cards Chosen credit card as the payment method Selected Visa Correctly entered your 16-digit card number Correctly entered your 3-digit Security Code (if required) Correctly entered your expiration date Correctly entered your name (as it appears on your card) Correctly entered your billing address (same address on file for your account) Not generated a purchase amount that is greater than your available balance

If these tips do not resolve your issue, please contact Citi Prepaid Customer Service at 8004221992 by using the number printed on the back of your card. WITHDRAWING MONEY 1. Which ATMs can I use to access my funds? Please note that there will be a service fee for a withdrawal. There is an ATM withdrawal fee of $1.50 per domestic transaction and $3.50 for each international transaction. Additional fees may apply at non-Citibank ATMs. This fee, along with any other fees assessed by the ATM machine associated with your ATM transaction, is automatically deducted from your balance. To find the nearest Citibank ATM, visit www.prepaid.citi.com/unicity and click Access $. For a complete list of fees associated with your card, please refer to the Disclosures and Fees table below. 2. How much money can I withdraw from my card at an ATM on a daily basis? You can withdraw up to $400 per day, with a minimum withdrawal amount of $10. If your daily cash requirements are greater than these limits, contact Citi Prepaid Customer Service Team, 800-422-1992, for adjustments. Please note, however, that certain ATMs have machine-imposed limits that may not allow you to withdraw the maximum daily amount. 3. How do I check my available balance?
