Credit/Debit Cards

When you set up your Cashless Wristband (aka Discovery Dollars) using a credit or debit card, an initial $50 hold will be placed on your card. If you need to reload your wristbands, please stop by Big Surf Locker Rental to add on more funds. At the end of the day, your card will only be charged once and only for your total day's spending. The previous holds will be released by your bank in accordance with the individual bank policies.


Determine an amount you would like to load on each wristband. Add more dollars as needed throughout the day.
