Preauthorizations and Holds
Preauthorizations and Holds Gas pump terminals and restaurants may place a hold on your Gift Card for an amount greater than your purchase. These holds will last until your transaction is finalized and may stay on your Card for up to 7 days. 

Two Forms of Payment
Two Forms of Payment ​If an item costs more than your Card balance you can use a second payment method such as cash, check, credit or debit card for the difference, depending on what payment methods the merchant accepts. Tell the cashier how much to apply with each type of payment when you make your purchase. Not all merchants may accept "split" transactions.
