Spriggy cards can be used anywhere a prepaid VISA is accepted, that’s all over the world!

Your kids can use their Spriggy card:


  • For purchases under $200 they can tap and go

  • For purchases over $200 they’ll need to select ‘CREDIT and enter their PIN


Note: If your child’s Spriggy card is used for international transactions, there’s a 3.5% currency conversion fee.

Your kids can’t use their Spriggy cards at:

  • Places that don’t accept prepaid cards

  • Bars, taverns, nightclubs, cocktail lounges and discotheques

  • Alcohol stores – beer, wine and liquor

  • Cigar stores and stands

  • Betting, including lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, off-track betting and race tracks

  • Money Remitters

  • Dating and escort services

We created Spriggy to help kids learn how to earn, save and spend responsibly and safely. Merchant restrictions help to prevent kids from spending in places where they shouldn’t. Other restricted categories which we reasonably consider are inappropriate uses of the Prepaid Cards may be added at any time without notice.

Sometimes this may mean that payments could be declined at places like the local corner store if they also sell alcohol and cigarettes. It depends on how a merchant has listed themselves.

The European Union has recently introduced restrictions on prepaid cards which might affect your kids if they’re using their Spriggy cards abroad.

Merchants including overseas and online gaming companies could also limit transactions. We recommend that you check with the merchant if your child’s purchase was rejected.
