VISA® Check Card

How Does the Check Card Work?

VISA® Check CardYou simply present the check card to make a purchase, and the cost is deducted right from your checking account. You no longer need to write a separate check! That means you'll spend less time waiting in line for authorizations, and you won't have to carry large amounts of cash.

Your monthly checking statement will provide even more detail. You still need to record purchases in your checking register, but you can look forward to a statement that includes information such as where and when you shopped, and when the funds were deducted from your account.

So when you need cash in a flash, or to pay for gas, groceries, dinner, sales at the mall-- anything at all-- do it the fast, easy way with the check card.
