Q: What do I need to use my Market Share?

Q: What if I lose my card?
A: When you purchase your card, the information you provide on our website allows us to keep a record of your card number linked to your name. By providing us with your info, we will be able to access your account information and issue you a new card in the event that it is lost or stolen.
Q: Can I sign up with a friend?
A: We will only issue one card per account. If you are going to split the cost with a friend, we ask that you share the card.
