- How do I download one of these Benefit Mobile Digital Gift Cards?
You must create an account and download the app. Once you have the app, you can load a gift card in about 30 seconds. and pay for you purchase.
You go to you app store, down load the app, and create an account linked to either your checking/debit or credit card. When shopping you just pull up the vendor, enter the total dollar amount (example $19.83) hit accept and in about 30 seconds you will have our gift card. Show to the cashier, they will scan or enter the # by hand and you have just paid for your purchase and earned funds for your student.
- These funds go to my student...correct??
Yes. When you create your account, it will prompt you to enter a STUDENT NAME. Make sure you also list the STUDENT# right next to the name. We have many, many students who have the same name.
- Can extended family help support my student with purchases??
Yes. They will create their own accounts, and link their own checking/debit or credit card to it. Again, they will need to list the STUDENT NAME and STUDENT#
- We have more than one student...should we have more than one Benefit Mobile Account??
No. We recommend having the account linked to the oldest student. Funds can be applied to multiple student school accounts. If you have a Senior who is leaving VT, just go in and update the STUDENT NAME and STUDENT# to the next oldest student.
- What happens to funds not used??
Any funds left in an account at the end of a senior year or if a student leaves VT is deposited into the VT Scholarship Fund at the end of the Donation Year. If there is a sibling attending VT, left over funds can be rolled over to that student.
- Can I send someone a Digital Gift Card??
Yes. The app will walk you through how to do it.....you will need the recipients email address.
The Donation Year is the period of time that funds are collected, at the end of the year funds are totaled and applied to the listed student. The year runs July 1st to June 30th of each year.
- What can funds be applied to?
Funds can be applied to anything school related (within) VT. Example--Program Fees, Yearbooks, Disney Grad Nite, Homecoming/Prom tickets, Fines, Club Dues, VT Sweat shirt/T-shirts. Funds cannot be applied outside of VT...Example...the purchase of program uniforms or standard student attire, school supplies, etc.
