A credit balance refund on the USAA® Rewards™ Visa Signature® Card is a reimbursement for paying more than the total balance owed on the credit card. For example, a cardholder who has a balance of $200, but pays $300, can get a credit balance refund of the $100 that they overpaid.
Cardholders can request a USAA Rewards Visa credit balance refund: by phone (1-210-531-8722) or by sending a written request to
USAA 9800 Fredericksburg Rd. San Antonio, TX 78288
They can get their refund in the form of a check. Legally, a credit card issuer is obligated to issue a credit balance refund within seven business days of your request for one.
