More Info about Debit Cards
Debit cards are also known as check cards. Debit cards look like credit cards or ATM (automated teller machine) cards, but operate like cash or a personal check. Debit cards are different from credit cards. While a credit card is a way to “pay later,” a debit card is a way to “pay now.” When you use a debit card, your money is quickly deducted from your checking or savings account.
Debit cards are accepted at many locations, including grocery stores, retail stores, gasoline stations, and restaurants. You can use your card anywhere merchants display your card’s brand name or logo. (For example, MasterCard or Visa.) They offer an alternative to carrying a checkbook or cash.
What is “debit”? Debit means subtract. When you use a debit card, you are subtracting your money from your own credit union account. It is a quick transaction between the merchant and your personal bank account.
What you should know about debit cards:
- Using a debit card frees you from carrying cash or a checkbook.
- Using a debit card means you no longer have to stock up on cash when you travel.
- Debit cards may be more readily accepted by merchants than checks, especially in other states wherever your card brand is accepted.
- The debit card is a quick, “pay now” product, giving you no grace period.
