When Exactly Does My Virtual Card Expire?

Every Jack Virtual and Prepaid Card has a robust lifespan of three years. To determine the exact expiration of your card, navigate to the Corporate Cards page in Jack Portal/App, then see the expired date in the card details page (see more in this article). Here, the expiration date is clearly marked in the MM/YY format. To break it down: if your card displays an expiration date of 01/23, it remains valid up to the very last second of January 31, 2023. As the clock ticks over to February 1, 2023, your card will require renewal.

How Will I Know When My Card is Expiring?

Transparency and timely communication are cornerstones of our service. As a Cardholder, you'll get notified and never be caught off guard by an expiring card. Here's how we ensure you're always in the loop:

  • 45 days prior to your card's expiration, Jack sends out an email alongside an "Alert and Attention" notification. This serves as an early reminder of the impending renewal.

  • As the expiration date draws nearer, you'll receive additional email reminders 15 and 7 days beforehand. These reminders not only nudge you towards renewal but also emphasize the importance of updating your card's CVV and expiration details with the relevant merchants.
