Debit Cards

Easy Access to Your Cash

SLFCU Debit Card

SLFCU’s free checking accounts come with a complimentary no-fee MasterCard® debit card. You can use it to make purchases anywhere MasterCard is accepted and withdraw cash at nearly 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide.

Apple Pay® is available for SLFCU debit cards. Learn more about mobile wallets.

Our debit cards are protected with EMV chip technology and also have a magnetic stripe so you can shop with merchants that do not have chip-enabled payment terminals.

Using Your Card When You Travel

Notify SLFCU of travel plans to keep your cards safe and working.

Your SLFCU credit card and debit card are protected by a system that detects unusual patterns of activity. Please let us know when you are planning a trip, especially one that takes you outside the U.S.

When activity is detected outside of your normal pattern, you’ll receive a phone call to verify that the purchase is legitimate. Please consider providing us with your cell phone number to help us reach you when you’re on the road. 

Card fraud is a widespread problem that you can help us to prevent. Call us at 505.293.0500 or 800.947.5328 or contact us through CU@home secure message and we will make sure your cards are safe and continue working when you leave home.

Please provide the following information:

  • Complete credit card or debit card numbers
  • Countries to which you will be traveling
  • The dates on which you will begin and end travel

Using your Visa or MasterCard credit card to make purchases overseas is a smart move. You'll be charged only the official exchange rate, plus a 1% international transaction fee.

Use your debit card worldwide anywhere MasterCard is accepted and pay for your purchase or get local currency from your share draft checking account.

Please note that savings accounts cannot be accessed by ATM overseas. If you will be traveling outside the U.S., please make sure you have a debit card attached to a checking account or use a credit card for purchases/transactions.
