Auto re-load is a feature that allows you to make sure that you never run out of your favorite offers.
Whenever you take an "always-on" offer, you have the ability to check the "auto re-load button." You can then set the dollar amount in your balance at which you'd like to automatically take the offer again. Whenever your balance dips below that amount, the offer is re-purchased.
Absolutely. We'll even give you a reward if your friend joins and takes an offer.
Just go to your "My Account" page and click the "Refer a Friend" button. From there, you just enter your friends' email address. We'll send out an email inviting them. When a friend joins and takes an offer- you'll get $10 to use on any available Marqeta offer.
There is no sign-up fee for the card.
There is no annual fee.
There are no load fees.
There are no re-load fees.
There are no transaction fees.
If you use your card as designed- you'll probably never pay a fee.
The fees we detail in our Cardholder Agreement are for occurrences that just don't happen that often. To be specific, we charge $5 for printed statements mailed to your home, but the same information is available online for free. We charge $20 if you have lost your card and want it over-nighted to you. Again, it's totally free if we send it via regular mail. In other words, these few fees are really only to cover our costs of servicing special requests.
All consumer funds are maintained in a federally chartered, FDIC regulated financial institution. Marqeta funds are never co-mingled with consumer funds. In fact, Marqeta banks at a separate and unrelated financial institution. Marqeta does not benefit on the float generated by the consumers' deposits. The bank holds the funds in an non-interest bearing account in return for charging reduced banking fees.
Your Marqeta card can only be used at merchants with whom you have taken offers or loaded funds. You can see our entire list of merchants under current offers.
No. Marqeta cards are intended for individual use. However, we encourage you to share great offers from your favorite merchants with friends and family – who can obtain their own personal Marqeta cards through our web site.
If you have a $120 balance at a merchant but wish to make a purchase of $150, the extra $30 is simply passed through to your backup funding source (credit card, debit card or bank account), which we capture when you activate your Marqeta card. You may overspend up to a maximum of $100 per valid funding source that you've linked to your Marqeta card.
There are absolutely NO fees for using this feature.
This feature is designed as a convenience to improve your purchasing experience. It is still your responsibility to make sure that you can pay for your purchase. If when charging your funding source, there are not sufficient funds available, we may have to temporarily freeze your Marqeta account and charge you a fee (this fee is simply to cover the costs we are charged when this happens). Please use this feature responsibly.
Marqeta does offer a mobile app. Just use your smartphone and go to www.Marqeta.com Marqeta will recognize your mobile device and provide you with fast, easy access to your favorite merchants and offers – even when you’re standing in the store. The Marqeta mobile app will work on iPhone/iPad, Android, and Blackberry devices.
The funds you prepay will never expire. The physical card will expire three years from the date of issue, but you will be issued a new card well before that time.
Just contact Marqeta and let us know. We’ll get a new card to you in 4-7 business days. Your funds are secure. Once you activate the new card your prepaid funds will be transferred to it.
Once you load your Marqeta card, you can spend your money in any way you choose. You can make one big purchase at a favorite merchant or several smaller purchases over a longer period of time.
No. Once you take an offer and load your card, you can wait as long as you like to spend your money. Your reward dollars may have an expiration date but the money you load onto the card does not. Please read offers carefully – each states the specific details regarding the merchant reward dollars.
No, but some merchants put a limit on the number of consumers who can take their offer. Other merchants may limit the amount of time an offer is available on Marqeta. Move fast if you see an offer you like – you could miss an opportunity by not accepting it.
For those who are already Marqeta members, you can use our recommendation engine, which you'll find on the right side of your "my account" page once you’re logged in. Using the recommendation engine, it’s easy to search for merchants and submit their information directly to us. We also welcome you to send your merchant recommendations to us via e-mail at email@example.com. If you'd like us to keep you posted on new Marqeta merchants, "like" us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter (@marqetacard). We’ll keep you informed as the Marqeta merchant network grows.
Funds loaded onto Marqeta cards are merchant specific – they may only be spent with the merchant that made the offer – at merchant locations included in the offer. However, you can accept offers from multiple merchants on a single Marqeta card. Each merchant has its own account on Marqeta and you can load funds to as many merchant accounts as you’d like – one merchant at a time.
Acceptance of coupons and discounts in conjunction with Marqeta varies from merchant to merchant. These policies will be communicated to you before you accept a Marqeta offer.
It’s easy – just use your Marqeta card in the same way you use any credit or debit card. Once you take a merchant’s offer and load prepaid funds onto the card, simply visit that merchant and pay using your Marqeta card.
You fund your Marqeta card by linking it to your bank account or to a credit/debit card. We will provide specific instructions when you activate your card.
After you join, your Marqeta card will arrive in the mail within 5-7 business days. When your card arrives, you activate it online at www.marqeta.com/activate and then you can begin using your prepaid dollars at your favorite merchants.
Simply register at www.marqeta.com and you can begin accepting merchant offers.
