Forest Area Federal Credit Union (FAFCU) offers a secure Debit Mastercard at no cost to members. Thanks to our instant-issue technology, you’ll have your new card in hand when you walk out our doors.
Plus, all Debit Card holders are automatically enrolled in the free ScoreCard Rewards program. You’ll earn rewards just by making Signature Purchases, such as travel or merchandise, with your Debit Mastercard. Earn one point for every $2 you spend by signing for transactions with your debit card.
FAFCU’s Debit Card Round up can assist members by automatically “rounding up” debit card purchase (attached to Share Draft Account only) and depositing the funds into a designated Share or Christmas Club.
When a Debit Card purchase is made, FAFCU rounds up the transaction to the nearest dollar, and the increased amount is then transferred to designated account. The round up process is not posted immediately, on a per-transaction basis. Instead, a daily process will calculate the round up amount for all Debit Card transactions posted that night.
CardNav gives you full control over your debit card usage in a way you’ve never had before. It’s great for business members whose employees use company cards, for parents wishing to monitor their children’s spending and for anyone wanting to ensure their cards are being used how they want, where they want.
