Get fast and easy ATM access and the power to make purchases anywhere Visa is accepted. It looks like a credit card, but the amount of your purchase comes right out of your RCU Checking Account. Your RCU Check Card is not a credit card, so you don't pay finance charges. Learn about our EMV/chip cards.
There are two ways to make purchases:
Debit— Enter your PIN and the purchase is deducted immediately from your account. You can also choose to receive cash back.
Credit—Select credit and the transaction will be processed just like a check. The funds will be held in your account until the transaction processes.
With a Smart Checking, Smart Checking PLUS, or Smart Start Checking account:
- Your RCU Check Card is FREE.
- Withdrawals at ATMs are FREE.*

Use It to Get Cash
You can use your RCU Check Card to get cash at an ATM. You can even check your balance, make deposits, and transfer money. Receive surcharge-free transactions at all RCU ATMs, ATMs displaying the Alliance One logo, and ATMs that are part of the Co-op Financial Services ATM network. If you can't find an Alliance One ATM, look for a PULSE ATM. You may have to pay the surcharge from the financial institution, but you will avoid any non-network fees.* You can also make a deposit at any PULSE or Co-op Network if it is a depository ATM.**

Peace of Mind
An RCU Check Card is more secure than cash or checks because the money passes through fewer hands and is transferred electronically. Your card is also monitored to prevent fraud, and your online purchases may be protected with Verified by Visa.
Verified by Visa— Visa offers online protection of your RCU Check Card. The first time you use your card through the Visa network for a purchase over the Internet at a participating merchant, you will be prompted to create a unique password. This password will help verify your identity during future Internet purchases at participating vendors.
