VISA Debit Check Card
Our VISA debit check card is finally up and running. Whether you use this card as a “credit” or a “debit”, the purchase will deduct from your CHECKING account. In other words, if you say “credit”, the purchase will not get billed to a credit card. You must have a checking account before you apply for the VISA debit check card. You will receive a VISA debit check card upon approval.
What is the difference?
Debit – If you say “debit”, the transaction is processed through the ATM network and you must use a personal identification number (pin).
Credit – If you say “credit”, the transaction is processed through the VISA network.
It all depends on personal preference. But here is a little-known fact: When you choose “credit” and sign for the purchase, it will give you the “power” of VISA International on your side in the form of chargeback priviledges and it actually helps your credit union and other members because VISA transactions are more efficient and less costly than ATM transactions.
