Why was my card declined?

Your card may have been declined because the purchase amount was greater than the available balance on your card. Some retailers will allow you to do a split transaction where they allow you to use two separate payment methods. Merchants are unable to obtain the balance on your card so it’s important to always know your balance before making a purchase.
