Yes. We charge up to a 3.75% processing fee for all orders. In addition to the processing fee, some cards are sold at a premium to face value depending on the brand and denomination.
As the marketer of a multitude of gift cards we recognize the importance of consumer awareness regarding all gift cards. Although the majority of the cards we represent do not have expiration dates or card fees, please read the Terms & Conditions of each gift card you wish to purchase as shown on the respective gift card page of our site.
SVM issues the 76, Choice, Conoco, ExxonMobil, Phillips 66, Sunoco, Chevron and Texaco branded gift cards. These brands do not have expiration dates or non-use fees associated with these gift cards.
Retailers set all retail prices and policies, whether company-owned retail outlets or independent businesses. In fact, it is against state and federal statutes for SVM to set or interfere with retail pricing. However, in our experience, where preferential pricing is posted - for using cash or other cash equivalents - gift card users often receive the preferred price. In other cases, however, the gift card user may not receive the preferred price. This is determined solely by the retailer and SVM has no involvement or control whatsoever in the retail pricing policy or decision.

Yes, SVM will ship your gift card(s) to a business colleague, friend or family member. You may also include a personalized message. You will find these options on the Customer Information page and the Order Confirmation page during checkout.
We use Address Verification Service (AVS) for all credit card orders to verify accurate billing addresses. Orders placed with an invalid billing address are immediately rejected by our website.
Shipments via UPS or FedEX require a physical address for delivery. These carriers cannot deliver to a PO Box. If your billing address is a PO Box and your order will ship by UPS or FedEX, please confirm your physical shipping address in the "Shipping Address" section of the order process.
Shipments by Next Day Air® generally have an afternoon arrival.
Note: If your address is physically located outside of the continental United States (Hawaii, Alaska) you cannot choose shipping by Ground or 3-Day Express. You must choose 2 Day Air or Next Day Air®.
Please be aware that if UPS or Fedex is unable to deliver your package due to improper addressing or inability to obtain delivery signature, you will be responsible for carrier surcharges. In addition, you are responsible for subsequent shipping charges if your package has to be re-shipped to the correct address.
I have a "value card" that I purchased in support of a fund raiser. On the "value card" it says to go to your web site for a list of additional businesses that accept this card. Where is this information listed on your web site?
This information cannot be found on our website. You have the wrong website address.
Please check the exact spelling of the URL listed on your "value card" for the correct website address. Due to the popularity of our website (ValueCards.com), we are sometimes mistaken for other firms that offer similar products and have similar website addresses.
Yes. Most cards we offer are "multi-use cards", which means that you can use them on more than one occasion.
The cards will decrease in value each time that you use them, until the balance on the card is zero. After the balance is zero, you simply throw away the card.
Remaining card balances may be subject to refund as required by law. Please call SVM at 1-800-786-8028 if you wish to inquire about a refund.
If your card has a value of $10 or less, SVM will refund the value of your card upon request. Please call SVM at 1-800-786-8028. There is no need to mail in your card(s) or complete any form.
