VISA® Debit Card
The card that’s better than cash.
Get connected to convenience and ease with Connects Federal Credit Union’s Get Connected Card. It’s not a credit card, it’s an account access card. It’s a check card. It’s an ATM card. You can use it at an ATM with your assigned PIN to access your checking or savings. (Foreign ATMs and POS PIN transactions incur a $1.50 fee per transaction).
You can also use it at any merchant with a POS terminal and/or that accepts VISA. When using the card at merchants, request a “credit” transaction to avoid the $1.50 fee. You can use this card just about anywhere, order online, order flowers or use at restaurants.
Earn rewards using your card. Enroll in the UChoose Rewards® program and earn 1 point for every $2 spent when you sign for your purchases. Redeem your points online for merchandise, gift cards and travel. For more information on rewards visit our FAQs page.
