VCNB just introduced a new feature that we think our debit card customers will really like. It’s called CardValet and it’s a free app to help customers take more control over their VCNB debit cards.
Some of our employees have been testing CardValet and one thing we hear repeatedly from them is they like being able to restrict where their card can be used. They also enjoy being able to completely turn off their card when they don’t need it. You read that right: you can turn your card on and off with the flip of a switch in the app!
Here are some popular features of the app:
- Turn off international card usage
- Set the geographic locations where the card can be used.
- Restrict transactions based on merchant type
- Set transaction amount limits
- Receive alerts for certain transaction types
- View card balances and recent transactions
Perhaps you want to limit the types of merchants where your card can be used. You can turn on and off several categories including gas station, grocery, restaurant, entertainment, travel and more. You can also set spending limits to deny a purchase over an amount of your choosing. If you are in the store and find you need to spend more than your CardValet limits are set for, you can simply log in to the app and set new limits.
Turning the card on and off is so fast and easy that you can keep your card off all the time and simply turn it on when you’re in line at the store and ready to use your card. Customers can also set a variety of alerts to let them know when their card has been used.
With the prevalence of fraud in the world today, we think many of our customers will be pleased to know that this control feature is available to them.
Ready to get started? Download the CardValet app from the Apple® app store or Google Play™ Once you have the app installed on your phone, it’s easy to register and get started. As always, we encourage customers to set strong passwords and to not share that information with others. Multiple VCNB debit cards can be linked and customers will soon be able to use VCNB credit cards with the app as well.
Our employees are loving CardValet and we think you will too. Give it a try today!
