What is Tango Card?

The subject can choose to purchase gift card(s) from a variety of vendors online. Tango only works with vendors that do not charge fees, and the gift cards provided by the vendors never expire.
Fees - Although there is no fee to order, there is a $25 per reward/card number cancellation fee with a $250 maximum. Should you place an order and decide to cancel it, depending upon how may Tango e-Gift cards you have ordered, there will be a fee ranging from $25 - $250.

How to Order Tango Card
All orders will be placed within 2-3 business days from department approval. There is no minimum load required for the cards with a maximum load of $1500.00 per card. Since gift cards are ordered in batches, all orders must have the same dollar amount loaded on each card. For varying dollar amounts, please submit multiple orders.
How Tango Invoices are Paid
Revolving Funds group will submit a Non-PO Invoice via ARIBA network and list the department budget with Object/Sub Codes 02-08-00. The budget Approver listed in ARIBA will be notified to approve the invoice. Card Numbers/PINs will be released to the Requestor upon ARIBA approval.
ARIBA Blanket Purchase Order (BPO) and Non-Catalog functions will be enhanced to allow Research Subject Object/Sub Codes 02-08-00. This will allow Campus to place BPO and Non-Catalog orders using 02-08-00 without going through the Revolving Fund group. More to come!
