Did you try to use your card and it was rejected?
If you try to buy something that costs more than you have on your card, it will be rejected. Tell the cashier how much is on the card before they use your card. If the cost is more than what is available, you will need to pay the rest with another form of payment.

If you try to buy an eligible item, like contact solution, along with a non-eligible item, like soda, the card will be rejected. You will need to make two separate purchases – buy the eligible items using the card, and then buy any other items with another form of payment.

Now you can use your CentAccount Rewards at Babies“R”Us and BabiesRUs.com. Your Rewards can also be used to help pay your utility bills. This includes your electric, gas, water, and sewer bills.
