Best Practices When Using Your Debit Card

  • The card requires you to use the chip if it is a chip reader. Chip transactions are more secure.
  • Use your PIN whenever possible. This is another layer of identification.
  • Beware of trial offers – you are probably signing up for a continued pay service past the free trial.
  • Research online companies before you buy. See what other people are saying about the company.
  • Look for who’s behind the offer. Just because you’re buying something online from one company doesn’t mean the offer or pop-up isn’t from someone else.
  • Set up debit alerts through Shazam Bolt$. You can receive text alerts whenever your card is used. With Shazam Bolt$, you can even turn your card off if you lose it or suspect it’s been stolen or used fraudulently.
