SunPass Mini transponders can be purchased online; by mail, phone or fax; or at major retail chains such as CVS Pharmacy, Walgreen's, Publix, Amscot Financial branches and AAA Auto Club South offices. Additionally, many locations along the Florida Turnpike sell SunPass Minis, including travel plazas, welcome centers and county offices.
Online buyers can purchase the transponder from the SunPass website. Purchases by mail, phone or fax must be completed through the SunPass customer service center in Boca Raton, Florida. The retail stores that sell passes also provide services for customers to reload their accounts. Some additional retail sites that are not located statewide include Navarro's Pharmacies and Sedano's Supermarket in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. Several of the tourist welcome centers on the Florida Turnpike have vending machines available 24 hours a day to purchase a pass.
The price for the SunPass Mini is fixed by the Florida SunPass prepaid toll program, so the pass costs the same regardless of where it is purchased. The pass requires a minimum first-time expense of $14.99 plus tax. The mini transponder is a one-time charge of $4.99, but buyers must deposit at least $10 into their toll debit accounts to activate it. As the pass is used, tolls are deducted, and additional funds must be added to keep the pass functioning.
