VISA Debit Card Program

< previous page
(Transactions are debited from your checking account)

The VISA Debit card functions like any VISA card at a point of sale (POS) terminal, except that when used the transaction amount is debited from your checking account. Your CCPFCU VISA card may also be used as an ATM card. When used strictly as an ATM card, you may debit your savings or checking account. Although the VISA Debit card functions like a regular VISA card, it is not a credit card. It is an extension of your checking account with all purchases being deducted from you available checking balance. If you use your debit card and press the credit button this simply means that you will sign for your purchases however, the money is still deducted from your checking. Some stores with (POS) point of service terminals allow cash back on transactions using your (PIN) Personal Identification Number. This is a safe and convenient way to get quick cash while you are shopping. Apply for your Visa Debit card today. Your VISA debit card may be used to make purchases or used at any ATM machine anywhere the VISA logo is displayed.

Cash back from participating retailers

PIN debit allows you to make purchases at retailers with PIN pads and receive cash back at participating merchants. When you enter your personal identification number (PIN) to complete a debit transaction, the transaction is processed immediately and is reflected in your account almost instantly.You can request "cash back" with PIN debit purchases at participating merchant locations. To take advantage of this opportunity, simply select "yes" when the terminal asks you if you want cash back with your transaction, then select an amount from the choices offered. Not all PIN debit merchants offer cash back, and the amount of cash available may vary, so be sure to ask.
