If your card is reissued with the existing card number, you will not need to add it to the app again.

My pending purchase shows it is for more than I paid. Why?

A Some merchants send pre-authorizations at higher amounts to test cards' validity. For example, a $25 gas purchase might display as $26. Pre-authorizations are common at the pump, for a hotel stay, or for a car rental. Even though the charge is listed in the app for more, it will clear your account for the correct amount.

I only want to manage one of my cards, but they're all being displayed.

To select the card(s) you wish to manage, go to Card Controls and tap the card within the app. Then, Remove the card(s) you don't want to manage. Once a card is unmanaged, controls and alerts cannot be set for that card.
