Support local schools by getting a First State Bank Spirit Visa® Check Card. Part of your one time issuance fee will go to a local school of your choice and a portion of the interchange fees for every swipe will also be donated, as long as you sign for your purchase. If a merchant asks if you want credit or debit, say “credit please”. If you see a request for your PIN when you swipe your card, hit “cancel” and ask the cashier to run it as “credit”. Support local schools just by buying goods you normally would with your First State Bank Spirit Visa® Check Card.
You can choose to use our standard Visa® Check Card and pay no issuance fee.
Use your First State Bank Visa® Check Card to pay for things right from your checking account without the hassle of writing a check. The Visa® Check Card is welcome at millions of locations around the world. Whether it’s the grocery store, a department store, or your favorite restaurant, you’ll enjoy being able to “write a check” with the swipe of your card anywhere the Visa® symbol is displayed.
Paying with your Visa® Check Card is simple. Just present your card at the time of purchase, and the amount will be automatically deducted from your checking account. It’s that easy. Plus, you’ll get a receipt for easy record-keeping, and every transaction will be detailed on your bank statement.
Unlike a credit card, you will be using the money in your checking account so there’s no finance charge. Because you are not incurring debt, there’s no monthly bill to worry about. Your Visa® Check Card also works as an ATM card. Get cash, transfer funds, or check a balance from hundreds of thousands of ATM locations worldwide.
