It is not a credit card, charge card or debit card and holders must not attempt to use it for any of these purposes. It cannot be used to obtain cash advances or “cashback”.


Your Card does not have an expiry date. However, should any credit balance remain 2 years (24 months) following last usage, such credit balances will be lost.

Abercromby will also charge an administration fee of £5.00 for this and reserve the right to vary this charge.

You cannot obtain redemption of any value stored on your Card from Abercromby vending machines or at the premises at which these machines are located.
