What is a Temporary Card?

A Temporary Card is the Ralphs® rewards plus Reloadable Visa® Prepaid Debit Card you purchase at any register in our stores. Use your Temporary Card until you receive your Personalized Card.

How it works
Step 1

Purchase a Temporary Card in Store

  • A Temporary Card is the initial prepaid card you purchase with cash and load with an amount between $10 and $500.
  • This card is included in the package you pick up at the store. Note that Temporary Cards are not reloadable.
  • Use this Temporary Card until your Personalized Card arrives in the mail (usually in seven to 10 days).
Step 2

Activate Your Temporary Card

Before you can use your card, you need to activate it. To activate your card, call 1-888-853-9523, or click here. Once you've activated your card, you can log in to check your balance, register for your Personalized Card, and start earning free groceries.

Step 3

Register for a Personalized Card to Earn Rewards

  • A Personalized Card has your name on it and replaces your Temporary Card.
  • Your Personalized Card can be reloaded by using either direct deposit (free).
  • With a Personalized Card, you can earn free groceries with Ralphs rewards plus no matter where you shop.

To register for your Personalized Card you can call 1-888-853-9477 or Login to our temporary card account and click "Convert to a Personalized Card" or get a card by clicking here. You'll receive your Personalized Card in the mail in seven to 10 days.
