TODAY MASTERCARD® PREPAID CARDHOLDER AGREEMENT
1. OWNERSHIP: The Card has been issued by PACE Savings under license by MasterCard International. The Card will remain the property of PACE Savings and must be surrendered upon demand. The Card is provided to you for use so long as you continue to act in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in this Agreement as may be amended from time to time. The Card is non- transferable, and it may be canceled, repossessed, or revoked at any time without prior notice, subject to applicable law. Please read this Agreement carefully and keep it for future reference.
2. USE: You agree to use the Card only for legal and permitted purposes. We reserve the right to prevent your Card (and card number) from being used for an illegal, improper or unlawful purpose. Cardholders must be the age of majority in their province or territory. Subject to the foregoing, you may use the Card to make purchases wherever MasterCard is accepted. The Card includes a Personal Identification Number (“PIN”) and can be used to obtain cash at any Automatic Teller Machine (“ATM”) that displays MasterCard and/or MasterCard Plus decals. The Card is not a credit card and usage will not enhance or improve your credit rating. No interest is payable to you on any available balance of funds on the Card and funds on the Card are not deposits with us and are not eligible for any kind of deposit insurance. Funds loaded onto a Card are not insured by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC). If you authorize or permit someone else to use the Card and/or PIN, you will be liable for any transactions made by that person. The Card will be valid and usable until either all the purchased monetary value is used or the expiration date of the Card, whichever occurs first. The Card has an expiry date of 3 years from the date of issuance. The Card is re-loadable and funds are loaded on the Card by the entity that provided the Card to you. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions section on the My Today Card App for a detailed list of allowable balances and transaction limits. From time to time, we may change the maximum Card limits, the maximum and minimum load limits and the maximum transaction and ATM transaction limits without prior notice to you.
3. CARD BALANCE: When you use the Card, the amount of the purchase and/or transaction plus any applicable fees for the transaction will be deducted from the unused balance. If the balance is not sufficient to complete the transaction or purchase and pay any fees, the transaction may be denied. If the balance is not sufficient to cover the full transaction amount, you may ask the merchant if the merchant will accept a split tender transaction. A split tender transaction allows you to use the remaining balance on your Card to pay for part of the transaction amount and cover the difference using another form of acceptable payment. Merchants do not have to and may not agree to accept split tender transactions. Any spending overdraft may be immediately repaid to us and/or our co-brand partners from the next load of funds. If you are entitled to a refund, the refund will be handled by the merchant in accordance with the merchant’s policies. The merchant may choose to credit your Card in place of providing you with cash. You may obtain information about the unused monetary value on your Card by logging into the My Today Card App or by calling toll free at 1-888-493-3144. Paper statements will not be provided. The Card represents a general liability to the card issuer. The money paid by you is not a deposit and does not establish a separate individual deposit account. You will not receive interest on the Card balance. The unused monetary value accessible by the Card, and your rights regarding the use of the Card, are not deposits of PACE Savings, service providers, or XTM and are subject to normal risks.
4. LOST OR STOLEN CARD OR PIN: If you lose the Card, someone might be able to use the balance on the Card. It may be used without a PIN to make purchases. You are solely responsible for the care and control of the Card and for maintaining the confidentiality of the PIN. You must take all reasonable steps to protect your Card and/or PIN against loss, theft or unauthorized use. The PIN is provided solely for your use and security when withdrawing cash from ATMs. You should not maintain a written record of or disclose the PIN to a third party, including family members and friends. Avoid PIN combinations that may be easily determined by others. With the MasterCard Zero Liability policy, you will not be liable for any unauthorized point-of-sale (“POS”) transactions made with your lost or stolen Card unless you have been grossly negligent or have engaged in fraud. Verification of a Zero Liability claim can take up to sixty (60) days and may require a police investigation. The Zero Liability policy does not apply to ATM transactions where the PIN is used. You are responsible for all uses of the Card with the PIN at an ATM, whether initiated by you or anyone else using the Card and PIN. You must immediately notify us if you lose your Card and/or PIN or you become aware that your PIN may have become known to another person or if you have reason to believe that another person has made an unauthorized transaction with your Card or may attempt to use your Card without your permission.
5. CARD LIMITS: The maximum amount that may be loaded to a reloadable Card in a single load/reload is $5,000. In no event may the balance of any reloadable Card exceed $10,000 at any time. Other limits may apply such as number of loads per day, number and dollar amounts of POS purchases per day, number and dollar amounts of ATM withdrawals per day.

Without limitation, fees may be charged for monthly maintenance, ATM fees, card replacement, and any other fees published as described herein. Fees may be changed from time to time by posting notice on the My Today Card App. By use of your Card after the effective date, you agree to the new schedule of service and fees.

7. RECURRING AUTOMATIC TRANSACTIONS: While using the Card for recurring automatic transactions is permissible, it is the responsibility of the Cardholder to monitor the Card balance to make sure it is sufficient to cover the transactions. Because your Card is prepaid and does not carry a credit line, a merchant that you have authorized to submit recurring transactions may suspend or cancel your service if the Card does not have enough value when the recurring transaction is submitted.
8. REFUNDS AND MERCHANT/ATM PROVIDER DISPUTES: If you are entitled to a refund for any reason, you agree to accept a credit to your Card instead of a cash refund, if the merchant does not provide cash refunds. You will settle all disputes regarding purchases you make using your Card directly with the merchant who honored the Card. We are not responsible for the delivery, quality, safety, legality or any other aspect of any goods or services that you purchase from merchants with your Card. We are not responsible for any disputes arising out of the purchase of goods or services using the Card or the failure of any merchant to honor the Card or the failure of any ATM machine to dispense cash.
9. AUTHORIZATIONS AND AUTHORIZATION HOLDS: When you use your Card to pay for goods or services, certain merchants may ask us to authorize the transaction in advance and may estimate its final value. When we authorize the transaction, we commit to make the requested funds available when the transaction finally settles and may place a temporary hold on your Card available funds for the amount indicated by the merchant. Some merchants may also add an amount to ensure that sufficient funds will be available to cover the final transaction (such as an estimated tip). If the amount of the authorization request exceeds the value on your Card, the transaction may be declined. Transactions at certain merchants that authorize high dollar amounts, especially rental car companies and hotels, may cause an “authorization” or a “hold” on your available balance for up to 90 days. Until the transaction finally settles or we determine that it is unlikely to be processed, the funds subject to the hold will not be available to you for other purposes. We will however, only charge your Card for the correct amount of the final transaction, and will release any excess amount only when the transaction finally settles. Please note that we may not manually release authorizations without a certified letter or fax from the merchant. In addition, if you commence a purchase and the merchant obtains an authorization, and then you cancel the purchase without completing it, the authorization may still result in a temporary hold for that amount of funds for 10 days, or longer in some cases.
