uChoose Debit Card Rewards

Debit Cards

PSFCU offers two types of debit cards: Individual and Business Debit Visa® Cards. A PSFCU Debit Card gives you access to the funds deposited in your account and facilitates shopping worldwide. PSFCU Debit Card holders do not need to have an established credit history*. When paying with a Debit Card funds are automatically debited from the owner’s checking account. Now the card also comes with the added security and convenience of contactless transactions. It is faster than writing a check and more secure than carrying cash. So whether you tap, insert or swipe, reach for a PSFCU Debit Card everywhere you shop, dine or travel. And remember, to keep your card active, you need to perform at least one transaction a year.

SMS Fraud Alerts

Our Credit Union members holding PSFCU VISA® debit cards can rest more assured about security issues.  They can register for the SMS Fraud Alerts program for their debit cards.

If you have a PSFCU VISA® Debit Card, you don’t have to worry about someone making an illegal transaction with it, and not knowing about it until you get your account statement or visit a Credit Union branch. If a transaction seems suspicious, the monitoring system will immediately send a verification text message to your mobile phone. Therefore, you can react immediately if any transaction is carried out by an unauthorized person.

How to Join?

You must register in advance to receive SMS fraud alerts on your mobile phone. As a PSFCU VISA® debit card holder, you should have received a mobile phone text message reading: “PSFCU Debit Card Fraud Alerts. Reply YES to enroll. Reply HELP for help. STOP to cancel”.

To join the program, reply “YES” and you will receive another text message (“Thank you for enrolling”) confirming that you joined the program. If you don’t want any more such notifications, reply “STOP”. Sending a “HELP” message is a request for additional assistance.
If you haven’t received the text message or you haven’t had time to answer “YES” and would like to register for the program, just call the PSFCU Member Service Center at 1.855.PSFCU.4U (1.855.773.2848) and inform one of our representatives. Anyone who obtains a PSFCU VISA® debit card after May 21 should receive a message inviting them to participate in the program within a few days of applying for the debit card.

One reason you may not have received the above invitation to make use of the service may be because you didn’t notify the Credit Union of your current mobile number. To provide that information, please also contact the PSFCU Member Service Center at 1.855.PSFCU.4U (1.855.773.2848).

The SMS fraud alert service is free and is currently available only to PSFCU VISA® debit card holders.

Membership restrictions apply. Other restrictions may also apply.

Traveling with your PSFCU Visa® Debit Card

Using Your PSFCU Visa® Debit Card to Make Purchases While Traveling

Before your trip, take the following steps to make the most of your PSFCU Visa® Debit Card while traveling:

  • Remember to update your personal information, especially telephone number - it is very important that your telephone number on file with us remains current as this will be the number Fiserv Fraud Detection System will use to contact you in case any of your transactions are identified as high risk or fraudulent.
  • Remember to notify us where and when you’ll be traveling. This way we will be able to update our fraud detecting systems to allow access and prevent your Visa debit card purchases from being declined in the area where you are planning to travel.
  • When using your card outside of the U.S., make sure funds are available in both your Savings and Share Draft/Checking accounts. This is due to the fact that different vendors have different ways of processing purchases.
  • Be sure you know your 4-digit PIN. Some merchants may require a four-digit numeric PIN when using a debit card.
  • Make note of your 16-digit Debit Card account number and keep it in a safe place separate from your cards.
  • Check your card’s expiration date before your trip.
  • Check the daily usage limits or restrictions on your card. Your cards have daily spending and withdrawal restrictions. Be sure you have enough funds in your account and that your payments are up to date. You may also contact PSFCU to request an increase to your spending limit.
  • Research the current exchange rate for your destination at to compare Visa’s competitive rates to those offered by foreign exchange bureaus. Remember to include any additional fees.

At your destination:

  • Look for the Visa brand mark at merchant locations to ensure you can use your card:
  • Ask the merchant if Visa is accepted if you don’t see a Visa logo. No card is accepted at more places around the world than Visa, so it is likely your card will be accepted.
  • Consider selecting local currency if offered a choice between home and local currency when paying with your card. There may be additional fees associated with paying in your home currency. 
  • Request merchants swipe your card even if they say you need a chip card.
  • Check your receipt before signing to make sure it is for the correct amount.

Helpful Hints

Tips how to protect a Debit Card against demagnetization

In order to protect our Members’ VISA Debit Cards from potential damage, Polish and Slavic Federal Credit Union is currently providing a “Tyvek” protective paper card sleeves with Debit Cards. Members should use the sleeves to keep the card protected. The sleeve will not only protect your card from being demagnetized, but will also prevent it from being damaged by dirt or scratches on the magnetic strip.

I. Potential reasons why a magnetic stripe can demagnetize:

a)   At the point-of-sale a card is run by the merchant across a demagnetizing pad that is also used for demagnetizing store clothing or electronics
b)   At home-magnets on and inside your refrigerator and in other areas of your home can erase the secure information about your account that is encoded on the magnetic strip. Also keys in your pocket can also scratch the strip and lead to difficulties with proper functioning of the card
c) Metal detectors
d) Magnetic clips on the wallets
e) Cellular phones

The examples listed above are the most common reasons for potential demagnetization, however there are many more, therefore it is very important to store and secure your card properly.

II. Please keep in mind, that a card may not be demagnetized but rather does not work because:

a) Transaction is rejected
b) The card may have been “hot carded” by the issuer if there is reason to believe the card is lost or stolen
c) Cardholder exceeded daily limits
d) Card may be expired
e) ATM machine is out of cash (if using the card to make a withdrawal with the card)
f) The cardholder may be trying to use the card where his/her card is not eligible

Funny but true...

From experience and what we have noticed, we can surely tell members:
-not to leave wallets with debit and credit cards on top of microwaves
-not to use cards as ice scrapers on the car windshield during winter
-not to bunch together cards as magnetic strips will demagnetize when placed one on top of the other
-unused card for prolonged time may also demagnetize
-not to expose cards to extreme heat, such as leaving them in cars on hot days

3D Secure

3D Secure is offered by Visa to make sure that the transactions made online are safe and secure with increased security for Card-not-Present (CNP), mobile or “app” transactions and offer significant improvements to the overall cardholder purchasing experience. There’s no need to register. PSFCU Consumer and Business Debit Cardholders are automatically enrolled. During an online purchase, cardholder may be directed through an extra step of verification. This helps to make sure that our members are protected against potential fraud.
