This Cardholder Agreement ("Agreement"), effective on November 17th, 2014, outlines the terms and conditions under which the Prepaid Visa RushCard has been issued to you by MetaBank® ("MetaBank" or "Issuer"). By accepting, signing or using the Card, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement. "Card" or "RushCard" means the Prepaid Visa RushCard. "Card Account" means the records maintained to account for the funds associated with the Card. "Load" means adding funds to your Card, including without limitation direct deposits. "Unload" means to remove funds from your Card by any means, including without limitation making purchases or withdrawals. "You" and "your" mean the person who applied for the Card and is authorized to use the Card as set forth in this Agreement. "We," "us," and "our" mean the Issuer, our successors, affiliates or assignees. "Designated Loading Point" is any participating establishment that will accept cash value loads to be credited to your Card as specified at www.rushcard.com. "Program Provider" or "UniRush" means UniRush, LLC. UniRush offers the Card program to consumers and is an Independent Sales Organization ("ISO") pursuant to an agreement with the Issuer. The Card will remain the property of the Issuer and must be surrendered upon demand. You may not transfer the card to any other person. The Card may be canceled, repossessed, or revoked at any time without prior notice, subject to applicable law.
You acknowledge and agree that the funds available on the Card are limited to the funds that you have loaded or have been loaded on your behalf minus any pending loads or pending authorizations and funds unloaded from the Card which includes any and all applicable fees. You should safeguard your RushCard with the similar care you would give to cash. Keep the Card in your possession and do not give the Card to anyone else to use. You agree to sign the back of the Card promptly upon receipt. The Card is a prepaid card which allows you to access the available funds on your Card. The Card is not a checking or savings account and is not connected in any way to any other accounts. The Card is not a credit card. The Card is not a gift card and should not be used for gifting purposes. The Card is not for resale. You will not receive any interest on your funds loaded on the Card. The Card is not designed for business use and we may close your Card if we determine that it is being used for business purposes. We may refuse to process any transaction that we believe may violate the terms of this Agreement or represents illegal or fraudulent activity. All funds are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") subject to applicable limitations and restrictions of such insurance. Our business days are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays, even if we are open. Any reference to "days" found in this Agreement are calendar days unless indicated otherwise.
Write down your Card number and the customer service phone number provided in this Agreement on a separate piece of paper in case your Card is lost, stolen, or destroyed. Keep the paper in a safe place. Please read this Agreement carefully and keep it for future reference.
Important information for opening a Card: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the USA PATRIOT ACT requires all financial institutions and their third parties to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens a Card. What this means for you: When you open a Card, we will ask for your name, street address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may ask to see a copy of your driver’s license or other identifying documents. Even after you receive your Card and after you have used the Card, we may limit your ability to use the Card or certain Card features including without limitation loads until we are able to successfully verify your identity. You agree, represent and warrant that (1) you are 18 years of age or you are at least 13 years of age and have your parent’s or guardian’s consent to open a Card; (2) your personal information is true, correct, and complete; (3) you are a U.S. citizen or legal alien residing in the United States (excluding Vermont) or the District of Columbia; (4) you have provided us with a verifiable U.S. street address (not a P.O. Box); and (5) you have read this Agreement and agree to be bound by and comply with the terms of this Agreement.
Your RushCard will be initially activated when you successfully set a PIN (defined below) and load funds onto it in accordance with the rules applicable to the Card program in an amount greater than or equal to the Card One-Time Card Fee. See the Fee Schedule for details. If you load funds onto your Card without setting up a PIN, you will not be able to access to the funds until you set up your PIN. After the initial activation, if your Card has to be reissued for any reason, including expiration, you may activate the Card by following the instructions that accompany the Card. The expiration date of the Card is identified on the front of your Card.
All fees will be unloaded from the funds on your Card. Fees will be assessed as long as there is a remaining balance on your Card, except where prohibited by law. Any time your remaining Card balance is less than the fee amount being assessed, the balance of your Card will be applied to the fee amount. With the exception of an ATM Balance Inquiry Fee, International ATM Balance Inquiry Fee, or Expedited Card Fee, this will result in a zero balance on your Card. With respect to an ATM Balance Inquiry Fee, International ATM Balance Inquiry Fee, or Expedited Card Fee, this will result in a negative balance on your Card. If that occurs, funds subsequently deposited into your Card will be applied to the negative balance. If your Card has a negative balance, to the extent permitted by law, we may, at our option and without waiving any of our rights, offset any direct loss up to the amount suffered by us as a result of such use from any balance on your Card or any other RushCard(s) you may have, or you may open in the future. We reserve the right to immediately close your Card and any other Prepaid Visa RushCard(s) with us you may have without notice to you.

When you activate your RushCard, you must select a Personal Identification Number ("PIN") to be assigned to your Card. Protect your PIN as you would protect your Card. You should not write or keep your PIN with your Card. Never share your PIN with anyone. When entering your PIN, be sure it cannot be observed by others and do not enter your PIN into any terminal that appears to be modified or suspicious. If you believe that anyone has gained unauthorized access to your PIN, you should notify us immediately. Also, please review the paragraph labeled "Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers."
You may not permit another person to have access to your Card or Card number. If you provide access or permit another person to use your Card or Card number then you are liable for all transactions and fees incurred by such use of your Card.
Your RushCard is for use by you. You may not request an additional Card for another person. We do not offer companion or secondary Cardholder Cards. You may not attempt to load your Card with direct deposits designated to another person and no one but you may load funds to the Card.
With your PIN, you may use your Card to obtain cash from any Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) or any Point-of-Sale (“POS”) device, as permissible by a merchant that bears the Visa, Interlink®, Plus®, Maestro®, or MoneyPass® Acceptance Mark. MoneyPass is a surcharge-free ATM network. See www.rushcard.com for a complete list of all surchargefree MoneyPass ATMs. All ATM transactions are treated as cash withdrawal transactions. You may use your Card at an ATM. The maximum withdraw from an ATM in one transaction is $500.00. The maximum cumulative amount that may be withdrawn from multiple ATMs per 24 hour period is $1,500.00. You may use your Card to withdraw cash from a bank (over the counter withdrawal). The maximum amount of one over the counter withdrawal is $1,500.00. The maximum cumulative amount that may be withdrawn from multiple over the counter withdrawals per 24 hour period is $1,500.00.
You may add funds to your Card, called "value loading", at any time. You may add value or load your Card via direct deposit, ACH transaction from your checking or savings account, Card-to-Card transfers, PayPal, or cash at any Designated Loading Point. See www.rushcard.com for a complete list of Designated Loading Points. You may also obtain information on how to load your Card at www.rushcard.com.

You will have access to your funds at the times noted below. The access times vary with each load method.
|Direct Deposit/ACH||Usually same day as received; maybe up to 2 days early based upon source of the direct deposit and the timing of the payer funding|
|Cash Load||Usually within one (1) hour, but no later than the next business day|
|RushCard to RushCard Transfer (1 or 2 Cardholders)||Usually on the date specified by you, but no later than the next business day|
|PayPal||Same day as received|
All checks (personal, payroll, cashiers) and money orders sent to the Issuer for Card loading will be returned unless we decide in our discretion to load the full amount to apply the check or money order towards a negative balance. Remote check deposit is available through Ingo Money, Inc. (a third party under contract with UniRush to provide you this service) via our mobile app. Terms and conditions apply to the remote check deposit. Visit the mobile app for more details.
The direct deposit account number associated with your Card cannot be used for payment (preauthorized direct debits from merchants or from utility or Internet service providers). Instead, please use Rush Bill Pay for payments to merchants, utility or internet service providers, see section 11 for details. If a merchant or provider presents the direct deposit number for a payment, this will be declined and your payment to the merchant or provider will not be processed. The bank routing number and direct deposit account number are for the purpose of initiating direct deposits to your prepaid Card Account only. You are not authorized to give the bank routing number and direct deposit account number to anyone other than your employer or payer. YOU AGREE THAT ONLY DIRECT DEPOSITS IN YOUR NAME WILL BE LOADED TO THE CARD. ALL DIRECT DEPOSITS IN THE NAME OF ANYONE ELSE WILL BE DECLINED AND RETURNED.
Card Details. The maximum combined amount that can be unloaded from your Card per 24 hour period is $2,500.00. The maximum combined value on your Card is $9,999.99. For security reasons, we may further limit the amount, type, or number of transactions you can make on your Card at any time in our discretion. Your Card cannot be redeemed for cash. You may not use your Card for online gambling or any illegal transaction.
Purchase Details. You may use your Card to purchase or lease goods or services anywhere debit cards, Interlink cards and Maestro cards are accepted as long as you do not exceed the value available on your Card. If you use your Card number without presenting your Card (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Card itself.
Funds Available. Each time you use your Card, you authorize us to reduce the value available on your Card by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount on your Card through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available on your Card, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction.
Split Transactions. Some merchants do not allow Cardholders to conduct split transactions where you would use the Card as partial payment for goods and services and pay the remainder of the balance with another form of legal tender. If you wish to conduct a split transaction and it is permitted by the merchant, you must tell the merchant to charge only the exact amount you request to be withdrawn from the funds available on the Card to the Card. You must then arrange to pay the difference using another payment method. Some merchants may require payment for the remaining balance in cash. If you fail to inform the merchant that you would like to complete a split transaction prior to swiping your Card, your Card is likely to be declined.
Authorization Holds. If you use your Card at an automated fuel dispenser ("pay at the pump"), the merchant may preauthorize the transaction amount (place a hold) on your Card Account of up to $75.00 or more. This may cause your Card to be declined even though you have sufficient funds on your Card to pay for the transaction. If this happens, pay for your purchase inside and tell the cashier exactly how much you want to spend. If you use your Card at a restaurant, a hotel, for a car rental purchase, or for similar purchases, the merchant or we may preauthorize the transaction amount for the purchase amount plus up to 20% or more to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover tips or incidental expenses incurred. Any preauthorization amount will place a "hold" on your available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. Once the final payment amount is received, the preauthorization amount on "hold" will be removed. It may take up to thirty-five (35) days for the "hold" to be removed. During the hold period, you will not have access to the preauthorized amount. If you authorize a transaction and then fail to make a purchase of that item as planned, the approval may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to thirty (30) days. All transactions relating to car rentals may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to sixty (60) days.
Preauthorized credits: If you have arranged to have direct deposits made to your RushCard at least once every 60 days from the same person or company, you can call us at 1-866-787-42271-866-787-4227 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out whether or not the deposit has been made.
Right to Stop Payments. If you have set up regular payments from your Card, you may stop any of these payments. Here is how: Stop the Payment in Rush Bill Pay or call customer service at 1-866-RUSHCARD (866-787-4227)1-866-RUSHCARD (866-787-4227) and request a stop payment at least 3 business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we may also require you to send us your request in writing within 14 days after you call. Notice of varying amounts. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the party you are going to pay will tell you, 10 days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. (You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.)
Rush Bill Pay. We make available to you a billpayer system, Rush Bill Pay, which allows for payment to third parties via a pre-authorized electronic deduction or by issuing a paper check. Any payments made through this system will be deducted from the funds on your Card within twenty-four (24) hours or on any future date specified by you. If you do not have the funds available at the time we attempt to make the payment from your Card, the payment will not be made. If you have scheduled multiple payments to be made and the funds on your Card are not sufficient at the time we attempt to complete all of the scheduled payments, we pay only those for which your balance is sufficient to cover, starting with the lowest dollar amount payment. We will notify you by email of any failed attempts to make payments from your Card.
New procedures are in effect that may impact you when you use your Card at certain merchant locations. In the past, transactions have been processed as Visa transactions unless you entered a PIN. Now, if you enter a PIN, transactions may be processed as either a Visa debit transaction or as a Maestro transaction.
Merchants are responsible for and must provide you with a clear way of choosing to make a Visa debit transaction if they support the option. Please be advised that should you choose to use the Maestro network when making a transaction with a PIN, different terms may apply, such as MasterCard® zero liability, see section 20 for more details. Certain protections and rights applicable only to Visa debit transactions as described in this Agreement will not apply to transactions processed on the Maestro network. Please refer to the paragraph labeled "Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers" for a description of these rights and protections applicable to Visa debit and non-Visa debit transactions. To initiate a Visa debit transaction at the POS, swipe your Card through a POS terminal, sign the receipt, or provide your Card number for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase. To initiate a non-Visa debit transaction at the POS, enter your PIN at the POS terminal or provide your Card number after clearly indicating a preference to route your transaction as a non-Visa debit transaction for certain bill payment, mail order, telephone, or Internet purchases.
If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with your Card, you agree to accept credits to your Card for such refunds and agree to the refund policy of that merchant. Neither the Issuer nor UniRush are responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspects of goods or services that you purchase with a Card. All such disputes must be addressed and handled directly with the merchant from whom those goods or services were provided.
If you need to replace your Card for any reason, please contact us at 1-866-RUSHCARD (866-787-4227)1-866-RUSHCARD (866-787-4227) to request a replacement Card. You will be required to provide personal information which may include your Card number, full name, transaction history, copies of accepted identification, etc. There may be a fee to replace your Card. See Fee Schedule for additional information.
If you obtain your funds or make a purchase in a currency other than in US dollars, the currency which your Card was issued, the amount deducted from your funds will be converted by the network or payment association into US dollars. The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by the network or payment association from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate the network or payment association itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date. If you obtain your funds or make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which your Card was issued, you will be assessed a foreign currency conversion fee of 3% of the transaction amount unloaded from the funds on your Card and will retain this amount as compensation for its services. Transactions made outside of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia are also subject to this conversion fee even if they are completed in U.S. currency. For security reasons, Issuer or UniRush may limit or deny use of your Card in certain foreign countries or charge you a fee for such usage, see the Fee Schedule for additional information.
You should get a receipt at the time you make a transaction using your Card. You agree to retain, verify, and reconcile your transactions and receipts.
You are responsible for keeping track of your Card’s available balance. Merchants generally will not be able to determine your available balance. It’s important to know your available balance before making any transaction. You may obtain information about the amount of funds you have remaining on your Card by calling the phone number on the back of your Card or visiting us online at www.rushcard.com. Balance information, along with a sixty (60) day (or more) history of Card transactions is also available online at no additional cost at www.rushcard.com. You also have a right to obtain a sixty (60) day written history of Card transactions by calling the phone number on the back of your Card or by writing us at UniRush LLC, P.O. Box 42482, Cincinnati, OH 45242 and requesting the Card history. There is a fee to receive your Card history in writing, see the fee schedule for details. You will not receive paper statements in the mail unless you request paper statements be mailed to you and pay the applicable fee.
We may disclose information to third parties about your Card or the transactions you make:
If we do not properly complete a transaction from your Card on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
Network transactions. Contact us at once if you believe your Card has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way to minimize your possible losses. If you believe your Card has been lost or stolen, or that someone else has transferred or may transfer money from your Card, call us at 1-866-RUSHCARD (866-787-4227)1-866-RUSHCARD (866-787-4227).
Under Visa U.S.A. Inc. Operating Regulations, your liability for unauthorized Visa debit transactions on your Card is $0.00 if you are not grossly negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your Card. This reduced liability does not apply to PIN transactions not processed by Visa or ATM cash withdrawals.
Under MasterCard zero liability rules, your liability for unauthorized MasterCard debit transactions using your PIN on the Maestro network with your Card account is $0.00 if you notify us within two (2) business days and you exercise reasonable care in safeguarding your Card from loss, theft, or unauthorized use. This reduced liability does not apply if a PIN is used as a method of verification for a disputed transaction or you have reported two (2) or more incidents of unauthorized use in the immediately preceding twelve (12) month period.
If your Card has been lost or stolen, we will close your Card to keep losses down.
Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers on your Card.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Card or PIN has been lost or stolen, or if you believe that an electronic fund transfer has been made without your permission. Telephoning toll-free at 1-866-787-42271-866-787-4227 is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your Card account. If you tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card or PIN, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your Card or PIN without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within 2 business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card or PIN, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your Card or PIN without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if your electronic history shows transfers that you did not make, including those made by your Card or other means, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the earlier of the date you electronically accessed your account (if the unauthorized transfer could be viewed in your electronic history), or the date we sent the FIRST written history on which the unauthorized transfer appeared, you may not get back any money you lost after the 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods for a reasonable period.
In case of errors or questions about your Card, call us at the number provided on the back of your Card, write to Cardholder Services at UniRush LLC, P.O. Box 42482, Cincinnati, OH 45242, or email email@example.com as soon as you can.

If you provide this information orally, we may require that you send your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days.
We will determine whether an error occurred within ten (10) business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your Card within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. This type of credit is referred to as a "provisional" (or temporary) credit. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. For errors involving new accounts, point-of-sale, or foreign-initiated transactions, we may take up to 90 days to investigate your complaint or question. For new accounts, we may take up to 20 business days to credit your account for the amount you think is in error. We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents we used in our investigation. If you have any further questions regarding our error resolution procedures, please contact us by calling us at 1-866-787-42271-866-787-4227 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT: If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and you do not provide it within ten (10) business days, we may not provide a provisional credit to your Card.
The Card and your obligations under this Agreement may not be assigned. We may transfer our rights under this Agreement. Use of your Card is subject to all applicable rules and customs of any clearinghouse or other association involved in transactions. We do not waive our rights by delaying or failing to exercise them at any time. If any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable under any rule, law, or regulation of any governmental agency, local, state, or federal, the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Agreement shall not be affected. This Agreement will be governed by the law of the State of Delaware except to the extent governed by federal law.
We may amend or change the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time. Please review the latest Agreement online at www.rushcard.com. If required by applicable law, you will be notified of any change prior to the effective date of the change. If the change is made for certain reasons such as security purposes, we can implement such change without prior notice. We may cancel or suspend your Card or this Agreement at any time. You may cancel this Agreement by returning the Card to us. Your termination of this Agreement will not affect any of our rights or your obligations arising under this Agreement prior to termination.
For security or other reasons, we may consider your Card inactive or dormant after a certain period of time as determined by us (such period normally being not less than 45 days) during which time you have not used your Card for any transactions or during which time you have maintained a zero or negative balance on your Card.
