Debit Cards - Please be careful using your debit cards shopping this holiday season. Use websites you recognize, DON’T use outside gas pumps, protect your PIN, and be carefully using Square and Pay Pal payments. Check your transactions daily to watch for fraudulent charges. Consider using credit cards over debit cards. Fighting fraudulent charges on a credit card is a little easier.
Daily Balances – if you will need more than $500 ATM withdrawals or more than $1,500 point of sales in a single day, please call Member Services to have your limits raised.
