Debit Card Application
Q. What is a VISA® debit card?
A. Quite simply, it’s a card that accesses your share draft account. It looks like a VISA® credit card, but acts like a check. To get a debit card you must first have a share draft account.
Q. Is a VISA® debit card easy to use?
A. It’s not only easy to use, there are no finance charges! You can use it to make purchases at any retail location that accepts VISA®. The merchant will handle the transaction just like any credit card, but instead of receiving a bill like you would with a credit card, the money is taken out of your share draft account automatically. For cash advances, go to any ATM displaying the VISA® logo.
Q. How do I keep track of my transactions?
A. Each transaction you make with a debit card will appear on your regular share draft statement, complete with the name and location of the merchant or bank with whom you did business. Please list all transactions in your register as you make them to keep your account in balance at all times.
Q. Is there a limit on my VISA® debit card?
A. Yes. The amount you have in your shard draft account. Additionally there is cash withdrawal limit of $400.00 per day.
