The holidays, made easier

  • November 19, 2018

It’s the season for Christmas music, lights, sugar cookie-scented everything and holiday shopping. And while your bank can’t do your shopping for you, we do have a few ways to make it easier. You have holiday goals, and we’re here to help you achieve them.

Goal 1: Shop the sales

Whether you’re shopping for others or buying for yourself (don’t worry, we won’t tell!), your debit card is your partner. You surely don’t have time to mess with writing checks or running to the ATM for cash when there are good sales to be had.

Goal 2: Stay on budget

It’s easy to get carried away when you see just how much you’re saving on purchases. But, getting a good deal is useless if the budget is blown. To stay on track, use online banking on the web and our app to keep an eye on your account and balance.

Goal 3: Keep cards and bank accounts safe

Nobody has time for a hacked card when there are holiday preparations to make. Our fraud center monitors your card every minute of the day. If we spot something out of the ordinary, we’ll reach out to you right away. Have you changed phone numbers recently? Make sure we have your current phone number, so we can reach you.

Goal 4: Don’t panic

If your debit card is ever lost or stolen, we’ve got you covered. Visit the Card Management tile in mobile and online banking to lock your card. Then, give us a call as soon as you can to get a new card.

Fast tip: We can even print one on the spot at several of our banking locations.

Sign up for online banking here or download our app today to get 24/7 control of your debit card.

Goal 5: Be a shopping ninja

Did you know you can pay with your debit card by holding your phone near the payment terminal? Fellow shoppers will be amazed at your ninja checkout skills. Get started by adding your card to a mobile wallet, like Apple Pay®, Google Pay™, or Samsung Pay. Sound intimidating? It’s really not too difficult to set up, and it’s just as secure as paying with your physical card.

And last, but not least, it’s not all about shopping. Take time to enjoy the things money can’t buy. We wish you a joyous holiday season filled with family, friends and good memories.
