  • Select option one on your telephone keypad as the card user, and then option one again to activate the card.
  • Enter the 19 digit card number, this can be found on the front of your card.

To order in store games console packages can be redeemed in Argos or Currys/PC World. If the total bill is more than the amount on your card you must pay the difference before your card is swiped. You must only use the card to buy games consoles for your child. You can buy items when you need them, the whole amount does not have to be spent in one transaction and any money left on the card can be put towards extra accessories and games. However, the total amount of the grant must be used within six months of the date of your grant award letter. Please keep all your receipts for 12 months from the date you purchased your items as we may write and ask you for them.
