Yandex.Money bank card with bonuses

The card works together with your Yandex.Money Wallet: they share common balance. You can additionally collect bonuses from Svyaznoy Club on your card.
Pay at any locations—supermarkets, cafes, or gas stations. You can pay at online stores, too. To get bonuses, make purchases from the Svyaznoy Club partners. After that you will need to change bonuses to discounts.
Withdraw cash via any ATM of any bank all over the world.
Common balance: how it works
The card and your Wallet complement one another: they have different numbers and a common balance.
The card is a physical medium for your Wallet: adding money to your Wallet allows you to spend this money in cafes, at the gas stations or at any other location where bank cards are accepted. When paying with the card your Wallet balance decreases.
Your Wallet works as an online banking for the card. Track your balance on our site or in our mobile app,
activate text message notifications, adjust regular payments for your mobile, internet, and utility services.
Svyaznoy Club's bonuses are only accumulated on your card. You can check with your bonus account on our site in ‘Bank Cards’ section or on the Club's site.
Collecting and spending Svyaznoy Club's bonuses
Svyaznoy Club's bonus program unites 50 companies, which include AliExpress, Ozon, Ecco, Bukvoed, LaModa, and KupiVIP.
If a certain location grants discounts within both Svyaznoy Club and MasterCard programs, choose either bonuses to your card or a discount.
Unfortunately, you cannot enjoy both reward programs at once.

The links are in the letter with your card.

PIN

You need to create the PIN in the course of the card activation.
Try to make it secure. For instance, pick a date only you know or a part of one of your friend's phone number. Simple sequences like 1234 won't do: they are too easy to guess.
You can change your PIN at any moment: the button is in ‘Bank Cards’ section.
When creating or changing your PIN, we recommend check it works. You can do it at any ATM: insert the card, enter your PIN and request to show your balance.
If you enter incorrect code three times in a row, your card will be blocked—you won't be able to pay with it even online where PIN is not required. In this case call 8 800 250‑66‑99 if you are in Russia, +7 495 974‑35‑86 if you are in other country.

Secret word

We will ask you to create one in the course of the card activation.
You need a secret word for calls to our Support Service: it allows our specialists totruly make sure the card is truly yours.
You can check your secret word under ‘Bank Cards’ section.
Adding money to your card
Simply add money to your Wallet. For instance, you can add money from any other bank card (1% commission) or by cash (without commission). The money is usually credited immediately.
To add money, you only need to specify your Wallet number. As soon as the money is deposited, you can spend it from your card.
Withdrawing cash
Any ATM in any country will do
All users regardless of their user statuses can withdraw money anywhere in the world. Anonymous and reviewed users can withdraw up to 5,000 rubles a day and up to 40,000 rubles a month (or this sum's equivalent in another currency). Identified users can withdraw up to 100,000 rubles at a time and 1,3 mln rubles a month (or this amount's equivalent).

personalized card
You can order a personalized card on our website and pick it up at the post office (from the courier). You can also get a pre-issued card (without a name on it): visit a Yandex.Checkout's or one of our partners' office.
.
If you have a different user status, the commission is always 3%—but not less than 100 rubles. It means that the commission for an amount lesser than 3,300 rubles will always be 100 rubles. For the amounts of 3,350 rubles up, the commission is calculated by 3% rate. For example, the commission for 5,000 rubles is 150 rubles.
Payments at non-Russian stores and currency conversion
If you have a reviewed or identified user status, you can pay with your Yandex.Money card at any store all over the world. If you are yet to specify your ID details, your Wallet is anonymous: you can only pay within Russia.

Before going abroad

The bank can block the card, if it was paid with in Moscow yesterday and in Hong Kong today. It creates an impression like
the card details were stolen (and it often appears to be true).
To be sure your card won't be blocked at the beginning of your vacation of business trip, notify our Support Service about
place and time of your journey: via a form on our site or by number 8 (800) 250‑66‑99 if your are in Russia or +7 (495) 974‑35‑86 if you are in Moscow or outside of Russia.

Converting to other currency

Yandex.Money MasterCard is in rubles, because your Yandex.Money Wallet is also in rubles.
If you pay in another currency than rubles, an equivalent of this amount in rubles is debited from your Wallet. In a couple of days, an entry of additional debiting or crediting
appears in your History. The amount may vary from several rubles or even kopeks depending on your payment amount. This is an exchange rate difference.
The conversion is performed according to MasterCard internal rate + 2.7%:
  1. The payment amount in rubles is being reserved on the card according to the current exchange rate.
  2. MasterCard processes the payment for one-two business days. The conversion rate for this period changes.
  3. We debit the amount according to the new rate: if the foreign currency rate increased, the difference is debited,
    if it decreased, the difference is returned to your card.
What to do, if your card got lost or stolen
If the card is activated, cancel it asap. You need to take both steps:
  1. On our site—view ‘Bank Cards’ section and click ‘Cancel’. If it won't help, call +7 (495) 974‑3586.
  2. On Svyaznoy Club's site—view ‘Your card’ section and click on the padlock icon near your card status.
