WILL MY WRISTBAND RUN OUT OF MONEY?

Not unless the card you linked it to does. No funds are stored to the wristband, it's just linked to your credit or debit card. As long as you could still use your card, you will still be able to use your ACM Cashless for payment.

IS MY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION STORED ON MY WRISTBAND?

No. We do not store any financial data on the wristband. The PIN you choose at ACM Cashless registration will always be required to make a purchase. However your card number and billing details are not stored on the wristband, so don't worry about someone snagging your info.
