Q: What is ScoreCard Debit Rewards?
A: ScoreCard Debit Rewards is a program in which you earn points for the transactions you are already making! With ScoreCard Debit Rewards, you simply use your Troy Bank & Trust Visa® Debit Card in a credit (signature-based) transaction. When you are asked for your PIN (Personal Identification Number) or prompted to choose "credit" or "debit," choose "credit" and sign the sales receipt when available. In some cases, such as paying for gas at the pump, you won't need to sign a receipt. For every $2.00 you spend in a credit transaction, you'll earn 1 point to redeem for merchandise, travel, and other rewards. In addition to earning valuable points, ScoreCard Debit Rewards also gives you the protection of your signature in cases of disputed card charges and identity theft. Selecting "credit" does not make your debit card a credit card. It will come out of your bank account the same as if you had selected "debit."
Q: How do I enroll in ScoreCard Debit Rewards, and when do I start earning points?
A: No enrollment is necessary. ScoreCard Debit Rewards comes as a feature of your Troy Bank & Trust Visa Debit Card. Your points start when you first use your debit card as a signature-based transaction.
Q: What if I don't want to be a part of ScoreCard Debit Rewards?
A: No action by you is necessary. Simply use your card as normal and don't sign onto the Scorecard Rewards website and your points will accumulate and not be used. But how much fun would that be?
Q: How do I sign onto the Rewards website?
A: Go to our website, www.troybankandtrust.com, and click on the ScoreCard link OR go directly to www.scorecardrewards.com and enter your first and last name, the last 8 digits of your debit card number, and your zip code.

Q: What if the website locks me out? Who can help me?
A: The website should not lock you out. If you do not remember your username and/or password, click the link to log in without an ID. The site will allow you to enter you're your First Name, Last Name, last 8 digits of debit card number and zip code. If you still cannot log in, call ScoreCard Customer Service at 1-800-854-0790.
Q: How do I know how many Points I have?
A: Point balances are always available on www.scorecardrewards.com or you may call ScoreCard Customer Service at 1-800-854-0790 to verify your balance. It takes up to three days for points to load on the website after a purchase.
Q: How are Points calculated?
A: The Program Administrator will round the points up if the cents portion of the dollar amount is $.50 or more and will round down if the cents portion is less than $0.50. Based on an example of scoring 1 Point for $2 for signature Debit Card purchases, the system will score as follows: If a cardholder makes a transaction worth $25.30, the system will first multiply the dollar amount of the transaction by the amount of Points awarded per dollar, which for a Check Card is .5. The resulting number is then rounded to determine the Points that may be awarded: $25.30 x .5 = $12.65, which is then rounded up to $13.00, resulting in 13 Points.
Q: Do my Points expire?
A: As long as your Troy Bank & Trust Visa Debit Card account is open and the Rewards Program has not ended, your ScoreCard Reward Points have a 5-year expiration date. The expiration of points will occur annually in October and you will be notified beginning 6 months prior to the expiration of points. However, if your Troy Bank & Trust checking account is closed for any reason, any unredeemed Points remaining on the date of account closure are forfeited and expire. If the Rewards Program is to end for any reason, you will be notified. In that event you will have at least 60 days to redeem your Points. After this redemption period, any unredeemed Points will expire.
Q: How am I notified of the number of Points that I have accumulated?
A: Point information is communicated in an easy-to-read format on an annual paper statement that we will mail to you. We will also email you updated point information to the email address we have on file for you. You may also obtain Points information by visiting www.scorecardrewards.com or by calling ScoreCard at 1-800-854-0790.

Q: What if the item I order is not available?

Q: For merchandise Awards, how long after I place my order should I expect to receive the ordered items?
A: Generally, merchandise Awards will be shipped from the Award Headquarters via a parcel delivery service or by the U.S. Postal Service and should arrive no more than 4-6 weeks after your order is received. Some items may be shipped directly from the manufacturer. You will be notified if there is a delay in filling your order.
Q: What happens if my merchandise Award arrives damaged?
A: Please check your packages closely for any apparent damage before signing to accept a package. If there is damage, please write a note on the delivery receipt before signing to accept the package.

Q: Can I change or return my airline ticket if my plans change after the ticket is issued?
A: You may not return a ticket to ScoreCard Award Headquarters but you may contact an airline directly for changes. Any change is subject to the rules and regulations of the particular airline and is subject to change fees and penalties they may impose, if any.

The purchase of this "full option" ticket will require you pay an additional $25 service fee and any additional monies owed up to the full value of the ticket selected.
