Your Vanilla Prepaid Mastercard card will be activated by the cashier at the time of purchase. Until activated, the card has no value. We recommend that you sign the back of the card where indicated and write down the card number and the customer service number in case the card is lost or stolen.

You will be asked to provide customer service with the card number and other identifying details. Customer service cannot provide a replacement card if you do not have your card number. If their records show that a balance still remains on the card, they may cancel the card and refund such available balance amounts to you in the form of another prepaid card.
