Thanks. The term "store-issued debit/rebate cards" doesn't cover in-store credit or gift/cash cards or gift certificates. I need an unambiguous and intuitively understandable umbrella term to cover them all that also doesn't overlap with the purpose of "credit accounts".

Perhaps the general term of abuse we've used for years would suit: Plastic.

Thanks, but, to me, the term "Plastic" DOES OVERLAP (intuitively) with the purpose of "credit accounts". Also, to me, it doesn't serve well as the umbrella term I mentioned in the above post you quoted.

Thanks anyway.
