Introducing an easier way to make all of your everyday purchases with increased flexibility, enhanced security and greater convenience—all in one card from BankDirect.
Your BankDirect Visa® CheckCard has an embedded chip, as well as a magnetic stripe. A growing number of merchants in the U.S. and abroad are using chip card readers, which take advantage of new chip technology, as a more secure method of payment.
Enjoy greater protection against fraud when your card is used at a chip card reader. Thanks to the latest in chip technology, each transaction generates a unique, one-time code—providing an added layer of security. Learn more about the chip technology.
To use your new CheckCard, insert it face up into a chip card reader with the chip first. Leave the card in the terminal until prompted; then sign or enter your PIN. Wait to take your card until prompted.
Enjoy wider acceptance at more locations outside the U.S., as chip technology is already being embraced internationally.
For added protection, your card provides a daily $2,500 point of sale limit, along with a daily ATM limit of $500, and can be linked to either a checking or money market account. Cards linked to a Savings Account have access to ATM withdrawals only.
Savings and Money Market Accounts have regulatory transaction limits. See the bank’s General Terms and Conditions Disclosure for more details.
