Visa® Debit Cards with Chip Technology and uChoose Rewards®  

 

Every consumer Visa® debit card from First Federal Bank offers uChoose Rewards®, meaning reward points with every purchase and embedded chip technology that ensures more security and wider international acceptance.

A microchip embedded in our Visa® debit card adds a new layer of protection against fraud for purchases made at the point of sale. Information programmed into the chip is personalized for your account and each transaction generates a unique code, adding an extra safeguard against unauthorized use and counterfeiting.

Using uChoose Rewards®

We believe personal checking should be rewarding. So we’ve partnered with uChoose Rewards®, which offers perks with everyday purchases. Simply open any personal checking account, register your Visa® debit card, and earn points redeemable for everything from getaways to goodies at most of your favorite retailers.

Earn Points

One point for every $2 signature point-of-sale transaction and one point for every $5 PIN based transaction. Enrollment is required to earn points.

Shop Smart

Shop at retailers participating in the program, either in-store or online, to earn additional points.

Reap the Rewards

Redeem points for products, travel, event tickets, merchant gift cards, and much, much more!

Using Your Chip Card

Start the payment process by swiping your Visa® debit card. If the terminal is chip-enabled, you will be instructed to insert your card.

  • Insert your card face up and chip end into the chip-enabled terminal.
  • Leave the card in the terminal during the entire transaction.
  • Follow the instructions on the screen and either sign your name or enter your PIN as needed; be sure to remove your card and take your receipt when the transaction is complete.

What if a merchant isn’t using a new chip-enabled terminal yet?

Your transaction will be processed following the normal swipe. Chip cards will continue to have the magnetic stripe on the back.

At an ATM

The process is essentially the same as at a merchant. Insert your card, leave it in the ATM, and follow the prompts on the screen. Depending on the type of ATM, you might be prompted to re-insert your card. Leave the card in the ATM until the transaction is complete and the card is released and then remove your card. A PIN is needed for ATM transactions.

Regulation E Disclosure 

Digital Wallets: Apple Pay®, Google Pay™, and Samsung Pay

Digital wallets offer an easy, secure, and private way to pay with the touch of your finger instead of using cash or cards. Apple Pay®, Google Pay™, and Samsung Pay can be used on your smartphone or smartwatch for purchases in-store and online – all without reaching for your wallet1.

How Do Digital Wallets Work?

Digital wallet apps store your card on your smartphone or smartwatch, and you still earn the same reward points and have the same capabilities as your physical cards. For in-store purchases, look for your digital wallet’s logo or contactless icon at the point of sale system, then open your wallet app to choose a card. Then simply tap your device on the terminal.

Safe & Secure

Digital wallets are convenient and safe ways to make purchases.

  • Your credit and debit card information is stored with enhanced security and is not shown to the merchant.
  • You are protected by Visa® Zero Liability for any unauthorized transactions2.
  • You are covered 24/7 with our enhanced fraud detection system.
  • You can receive account alerts and view your transactions on your device to monitor spending.
