Debit or Credit?
What do you say when a cashier asks, “credit or debit?” Always answer CREDIT.
When you say debit, the transaction is processed as an ATM transaction. You must enter your PIN and that transaction goes toward your daily PIN usage limit of $500. This means you could be declined on a transaction if you have already reached your daily limit. You are allowed 5 PIN based transactions per month at no charge. Each additional PIN based transaction will cost $0.75 + tax. Note: ATM transfers count as two PIN usages and balance inquiries count as one PIN usage.
For unlimited non-PIN based transactions per month, specify CREDIT when making a purchase.
Using Your Citizens VISA® Debit Card as Credit
- Present your debit card and specify CREDIT when paying for purchases.
- You may make up to 40 of these transactions daily for FREE.
- You have access to all of the available funds in your account.
- You will not be able to use more funds than are currently available in your checking account. However, if you have outstanding checks or make any cash withdrawals you may still run the risk of overdrafts.
- Enter each transaction in your check register and keep your receipts.
- You have more consumer protection rights when used as credit.
If you choose credit, the transaction will post directly to your checking account in a few days. Merchants forward your transactions to Citizens, they will post to your account when received. This may or may not be in the same month as the purchase.
If you choose credit, you have VISA® return chargeback options available. If for some reason you need to dispute the transaction, you are able to when you process it as a credit transaction.
When you choose credit, the transaction is less expensive to process for the credit union. When we save, you save by receiving lower cost services and better savings and loan rates.
