Turn Your Card On and Off

This feature allows you to control when purchases can and can’t be made with your debit card.

  • “Off” mode- no purchases or withdrawals will be approved, but previously scheduled recurring payments will go through; this is ideal in the event your card is lost or stolen to “freeze” your account.
  • “On” mode- transactions of all kinds (purchases, cash withdrawals, etc.) will go through

Keep Tabs on Card Usage

CardValet also allows you to keep an eye on your card usage.

  • Set up alerts to detect unauthorized activity that may be an attempt at fraud
  • Establish spending limits to keep your spending in check
  • Report or restrict PIN and signature transactions
  • Utilize GPS to set restrictions on your purchasing area
  • Control card use based on the type of merchant
