It’s the season for Christmas music, lights, sugar cookie-scented everything and holiday shopping. And while your bank can’t do your shopping for you, we do have a few ways to make it easier. You have holiday goals, and we’re here to help you achieve them.
Goal 1: Shop the sales
Whether you’re shopping for others or buying for yourself (don’t worry, we won’t tell!), your debit card is your partner. You surely don’t have time to mess with writing checks or running to the ATM for cash when there are good sales to be had.
Goal 2: Stay on budget
It’s easy to get carried away when you see just how much you’re saving on purchases. But, getting a good deal is useless if the budget is blown. To stay on track, use Online Banking and our app to keep an eye on your account and balance. Once you enroll in Online Banking, you’re ready to download the app, too.
Goal 3: Keep card and bank account safe
Nobody has time for a hacked card when there are holiday preparations to make. Our fraud center monitors your card every minute of the day. If we spot something out of the ordinary, we’ll reach out to you right away. Have you changed phone numbers recently? Make sure we have your current phone number, so we can reach you.
Goal 4: Don’t panic
If your debit card is ever lost or stolen, we’ve got you covered. For those times when you’ve misplaced your card and aren’t sure if it’s totally lost, visit “Settings” in the mobile banking app and mark “Suspend Card” to temporarily lock it. If you find it, simply mark “Activate Card” in the app and you’re good to go again. If it’s been stolen or you know you’re not going to find it, mark “Report Lost or Stolen” to immediately lock it. Then, give us a call as soon as you can to get a new card.
Fast tip: We can even print one on the spot at several of our banking locations.
Sign up for Online Banking here and download our app today to get 24/7 control of your debit card.
Goal 5: Be a shopping ninja
Did you know you can pay with your debit card by holding your phone near the payment terminal? Fellow shoppers will be amazed at your ninja checkout skills. Get started by adding your card to a mobile wallet, like Apple Pay®, Google Pay™, or Samsung Pay. Sound intimidating? It’s really not too difficult to set up, and it’s just as secure as paying with your physical card. Check it out>>
And last, but not, least, it’s not all about shopping. Take time to enjoy the things money can’t buy. We wish you a joyous holiday season filled with family, friends and good memories.
