Visa Check Card / ATM and How it Works
A West Branch Valley Federal Credit Union Check Card works just like a credit card, but instead of receiving a bill each month, the funds are debited (deducted) directly from your Checking account. It gives you all of the conveniences of a credit card, but no monthly bill.
Looking for a fast, convenient, and safe way to pay? Using your Visa Check Card is quicker than making a trip to the ATM, more convenient than writing checks, and safer than carrying cash. And unlike other debit cards, your Visa Check Card offers acceptance at millions of merchant locations worldwide—anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted.
Since Visa Check Card purchases are automatically deducted from your checking account, there’s no interest to pay. Your monthly statement provides you with a record of all your transactions, making your record-keeping simple.
A West Branch Valley Federal Credit Union Visa Check Card gives you shopping freedom and its uses are endless. Withdraw cash from your checking account for free for the first six transactions and $1 for every transaction after that, using an Allpoint ATM from one of the 43,000 locations located nationwide! Pay at the pump when you buy gas, or use it at the mall or grocery store. You can even use it to shop online!

Just Say “Credit”
Even though your Check Card is a debit card, when the merchant asks, “credit or debit,” just say “credit.” You should do this for two reasons. First, when you use your Check Card as a credit card, you will be asked to sign your receipt. Your signature makes that receipt a legal document. If you ever have a dispute, your receipt verifies that you made the purchase on a specific day and for a specific amount. This simply adds to your safety when shopping.

PIN Transactions at Walmart
WBVFCU is now requiring you to use your PIN instead of using your signature for check (debit) card transactions at Walmart. This measure was implemented by your credit union to help deter fraud. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions please feel free to contact a member service representative during our normal business hours.
