To help offset the potential cost of purchasing an external, autofocus webcam for online proctored testing, NCARB will provide all candidates who schedule their first online appointment a $50 prepaid card.

As an ARE candidate, you are eligible to receive one $50 prepaid card, which will be issued automatically after you schedule your first online proctored appointment. Please note: If you do not schedule an exam appointment to be taken via online proctoring, you will not receive a $50 prepaid card.

How It Works
After you schedule your first online proctored appointment, you will receive an email from noreply@tangocard.com with important information about redeeming your $50 prepaid card. Once you receive the email, which could take up to two business days, follow these steps to redeem your card:

  1. Click the link in the email from noreply@tangocard.com to redeem your $50 prepaid card.
  2. You will have the option to receive either a physical prepaid card or a virtual prepaid card.
  3. Complete the redemption form to activate your prepaid card. You must complete the redemption process within four months of receiving the initial email from noreply@tangocard.com.
  4. Once activated, you must use your $50 prepaid card within seven months.

You can use the prepaid card to make a purchase like you would use a credit or debit card. While we encourage you to use the $50 prepaid card to purchase a webcam, you can also use it for other purchases, and you are still eligible to receive the prepaid card if you already have a webcam. If you have any problems or questions about your prepaid card, please contact 1-877-55-TANGO (82646) or cs@tangocard.com.
