Visa Check Cards/ATM Cards
A Visa Check Card is a great alternative to carrying cash because you can use
it at an ATM to withdraw cash. It also eliminates the need to carry your checkbook! Use it to withdraw cash from your savings or checking at an ATM
or use it to make purchases at any merchant that accepts VISA. You’ll get a
receipt from the merchant and a copy of your account transaction for easy
record keeping. Your purchases are deducted automatically from your
checking account. The VISA Check Card is accepted worldwide, wherever
you see the VISA logo.
Credit vs. Debit
Help save your credit union money by selecting “credit” vs. "debit”. Selecting “credit” at the point of sale will require a signature which will be processed by VISA instead of the ATM network. Point of Sale transactions that are processed as “credit” are more efficient, reduce the cost to the credit union and provide additional rights to you as a consumer. Selecting “credit” makes good financial sense and either way the purchase will be deducted from your checking account.
Verified by Visa
For your financial security, Maine Education Credit Union now participates in “Verified by Visa” To enhance the security of shopping online, we strongly recommend that you password protect your card by registering it online at Verified By Visa
