I have entered the activation code on my scratch card to receive my digital voucher, but I still haven’t received my text message. When will I receive it?

My card keeps declining. Why is this happening?
Once the $20 Mastercard is loaded to your wallet, you can make purchases at our specialty retailers. If you are trying to make a purchase over the $20 amount, you will need to do this through a split payment. The Mastercard will not automatically deduct the $20 from your full purchase amount.
