It’s not just an ordinary ATM card: You can use it to make everyday purchases wherever Visa is accepted, both in-store and online, and you can even pay your bills with it. Not to mention that it saves you the hassle of carrying cash or checks.
Have the convenience of accessing your funds, without writing a check, by simply swiping your check card at the local merchant. When you use your card, you can decide to run your card as credit or debit. VyStar's Check Card also acts as an ATM card, using your same PIN.
