    • Where can I get my BuzzCard Account Balance?

      Account holders may check their card balance online any time by connecting to the MANAGE MY BUZZCARD link available from the BuzzCard web site. From the eAccount module you can check your balance, obtain monthly statements, view account activity for the last thirty days, and suspend your card if it is lost or stolen. Other ways to check your balance are:

      • When you make a purchase with your BuzzCard — the balance is printed at the bottom of each receipt;
      • When you purchase a drink or snack from a vending machine, the balance is flashed on the card reader display; and 
      • You can get your balance printed at any BuzzCard Value Transfer Station. Also, you can get your balance by stopping by the BuzzCard Center.
    • What happens if someone uses my stolen BuzzCard?
      The BuzzCard Account Disclosure of Terms and Conditions states that: The Institute complies with the requirements of Federal Truth in Lending Law. If a Card is lost or stolen, the Cardholder is responsible for no more than $50 in unauthorized Account purchases, provided the Card is reported as lost or stolen to the BuzzCard Center or the Georgia Tech Police Department within two calendar days of the loss or theft. Once the Card is reported as lost or stolen, the Card (and its associated Account) will be deactivated and the Cardholder is not responsible for any subsequent card purchases. Should the Cardholder notify the BuzzCard Center or the Georgia Tech Police Department after two days of the loss but within sixty (60) days after the issuance of an Account Activity Statement containing the unauthorized purchase(s), the Cardholder is responsible for no more than $500 in unauthorized Account purchases. If the Cardholder fails to notify the BuzzCard Center of an unauthorized Card purchase within sixty (60) days after an Account Activity Statement containing such purchase has been issued, then the Cardholder limit of liability does not apply. For the full account disclosure statement please see
