Yes, you can but only in person at certain retail location. Before you do this, you should tell the cashier that you are going to be using two forms of payment for the transaction. You should then give the cashier your Simon Visa Gift Card first, and ask the cashier to charge the full amount on the card (which means you have to know exactly how much you have on the card). You can then present another form of payment (cash or credit card, or another Simon Visa Gift Card, if allowed) to pay for the balance.
If you fail to tell the cashier first and try to make a purchase for more than the amount on the Simon Visa Gift Card, the transaction will be declined because you don’t have enough money on your card.
