Writing Checks…Get a Visa Debit Card!
Visa Debit Cards are available with the Apprentice Checking, Journeyman
Checking, and the Master Craftsman Checking accounts. To restaurants
and retailers your Debit Card looks and acts like a credit card,
but to you it is like writing a check. The transactions are debited
directly from your checking account. You can use your Debit Card
in ATMs, as POS transactions, and anywhere Visa is accepted.
When using your UYFCU Visa Debit Card, some merchants give you
the opportunity to select "credit" or "debit."
Both options will be automatically deducted from your UYFCU checking
account, however they are processed differently. Here are some
tips for making the best selection.
Select the CREDIT option:
- To have some of the same dispute rights as when you use a Visa
credit card should you have problems with the goods or services
- To be cost conscious. Some merchants charge a small fee for
transactions when you select the debit option.
- To avoid having to enter your PIN number in front of other people.
the DEBIT option:
- When you would like cash back from the merchant.
you sign-up in person, you may select your own Personal Identification
Number (PIN). If you sign-up by mail, your card will be mailed
to you and a system generated PIN will soon follow in the mail.
You may change your PIN at any time by bringing in your Visa Debit
Card to any UYFCU branch.
