VISA® Debit Card
Our VISA Debit Card pays like a paper check, and is accepted across town, throughout the nation and worldwide — wherever VISA Debit Cards are welcome. Just swipe it at the register and the amount of your purchase will be electronically debited from your checking account. It’s less hassle than writing paper checks, lets you carry less cash, and because you’re using money already in your account instead of taking a credit advance, there are never any interest charges.
It’s also an ATM card that lets you withdraw cash at any ATM displaying one of these logos:
More Surcharge-Free ATMs Than Any Bank
Get surcharge-free cash when and where you need it, wherever you see the CO-OP Network logo. There are more than 30,000 CO-OP Network ATMs (inlcuding participating 7-Eleven Stores and Walgreens) in 50 states — more than even the big banks have:

Cash Back On Purchases
Get cash at supermarkets, department stores and thousands of other businesses when you pay with your Visa Debit Card or ATM card. Simply choose "Debit/ATM" instead of "Credit" and ask for cash back. Getting cash from a participating retailer is a safe alternative to ATMs, especially when you need cash at night and the nearest ATM is poorly lit or you’re uncomfortable with the area.
Sign Or Use Your PIN?
There’s a reason you’re asked to choose Credit or Debit when you use your debit card. It’s because you have a choice. Most people choose Debit and enter their PIN to pay for the purchases. If you choose Credit, you sign for your purchases. But which is the best choice?
If you don’t need cash back, always choose Credit and sign for your purchases. Your Credit purchases are protected against fraud by VISA. That means zero liability in case of fraudulent use, and you can dispute a transaction if you are not satisfied, just the same as with a credit card purchase. Debit purchases don’t have this protection. Remember, SIGN — DON’T PIN.
