Debit cards act as a check and withdraw funds directly from your checking account—and can even be used at the ATM.
Here's how it works:
- Present your VISA debit card to any merchant displaying the VISA® logo, sign a receipt, and the purchase amount is deducted from your checking account. Remember to record the transaction in your checkbook.
- All Debit card transactions appear on your monthly statement including the date and location where the transaction took place.
- The card eliminates waiting for check approvals—and accesses your checking account faster than writing a check
- It's a single card with a double purpose; it works as a personal check and an ATM card combined!
