Everyday Card Terms & Conditions

These are your Entrust Financial Credit Union Everyday Card Terms and Conditions. Please read the following carefully and keep these Terms and Conditions for your records as they set out the Agreement between you and us. You will be deemed to have accepted the Card and the terms of this Agreement if you do any of the following: (a) use the Card or (b) activate the Card.

"Agreement" means these Entrust Financial Credit Union Everyday Card Terms and Conditions. "We" "us" and "our" refer to Entrust Financial Credit Union. "You", "your", "yours", and "cardholder" in this Agreement refer to the Parent, Teen, or anyone authorized to use or accept an Entrust Financial CU Everyday Card. "Card" means the primary Entrust Financial CU Everyday Card and any secondary Everyday Cards obtained from us. "Parent" means either the parent or legal guardian of the Teen. "Teen" means a child of the Parent who is of at least 13 years of age, who is authorized by the Parent to use the Card. By authorizing the Teen to use the Card, the Parent represents that such Teen is at least 13 years of age. Any use of the Card by anyone under 13 years of age is an unauthorized use of the Card. You, not Entrust Financial Credit Union, have sole responsibility in such cases.

Important Information about Opening Your New Account

To help fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

Card Description

The Card is a Visa prepaid, reloadable, stored value card. The Card is not directly linked to any other checking or credit card account. The Card is not a credit card or a NCUA insured deposit account. No interest will be paid on the balances transferred to the Card account. You and the Teen must be residents of the United States to be eligible to have a Card issued and monies funded into the account accessed by the Card. As part of the account set up process, you may establish a designated funding account (the "Funding Account") from which funds will be transferred as authorized to the Card. The Funding Account must be either an Entrust Financial CU Credit Card or Debit Card. You may change the Funding Account from time to time. Each primary cardholder may have a maximum of two secondary cards per an account. Secondary cards will have to be separately activated and can be used in the same way as the Card at ATMs and merchants that accept VISA debit cards. You are responsible for all authorized transactions made with this additional Card(s).

Ownership of the Card

This card is issued by Entrust Financial Credit Union; pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A, Inc. Your Card allows you to access your prepaid funds at ATMs, which display the Visa or Plus logo. You may also use your Card at merchants who accept VISA debit cards worldwide. The Card is and will remain our property. However, you will be solely and completely responsible for the possession, use and control of the Card. You must surrender the Card to us immediately upon request. The Card may not be used for Internet lottery, betting, or gambling transactions or for any illegal transactions. You agree to take steps to ensure that you do not use your Card or any linked account for any transaction that is illegal under the laws governing your account. Entrust Financial Credit Union reserves the right to deny transactions or authorizations from merchants apparently engaging in the Internet gambling business or identifying themselves through the Card transactions record or otherwise as engaged in such business.

Before using the Card

You must: (i) activate the Card and (ii) sign the reverse of the Card using your usual signature immediately upon receipt. Write down your Card number and the Member Service Number on a separate piece of paper in case the Card is ever lost or stolen. At the time of activation, for your protection and for regulatory purposes, we may request, and you agree to provide, some additional identification verification information such as your home phone number, date of birth, social security number and zip code. We may use this data for a range of purposes, including but not limited to facilitating refunds if your Card is lost or stolen, enhancing usage at merchants that may require zip code authorization, and aiding in collection efforts in the event of a Shortage, as defined herein. If you do not wish to provide the data, or if the data you provide us cannot be appropriately verified, we reserve the right to cancel your Card and reimburse you for the Initial Load Amount.

Using Your Card

You are able to use your Card to:
1. Pay for purchases of goods or services at merchants who accept Visa® debit cards, and have agreed to accept the Card for Point-of-Sale (POS) purchases.
2. Obtain cash at Financial Institutions that accept Visa debit cards.
3. Perform transactions listed below on automated teller machines (ATM) that display the Visa or Plus logo.
4. Access our on-line services to obtain Card account balances and review recent Card account history.
5. Access our telephone customer services number listed below.

Use of Card, the PIN and Terminal - The cardholder may be provided with a Personal Identification Number (PIN), which will allow them to use the Card at an ATM. The cardholder can activate the Card and obtain a PIN by calling toll-free, 1-866-760-3156 or visit us online at our website, www.entrustfcu.org. The Card and PIN are provided for your use and protection, and you agree:

1. to not disclose the PIN nor record it on the Card or otherwise make it available to anyone else;

2. to use the Card, the PIN and any ATM or point of sale terminal as instructed;

3. to promptly notify us of any loss or theft of the Card or PIN; and

4. to be liable for any transactions made by a person you authorize or permit to use the Card and/or PIN. If you permit someone else to use your Card, we will treat this as if you have authorized this person to use your Card and you will be responsible for any transactions initiated by such person with your Card.

You may load value onto the Card at any time using a Funding Account, not to exceed $9,000 per seven (7) day period. Upon authorization, this will cause monies to be funded into the account accessed by the Card and be available for use by you to make designated transactions. Funds may not be available for immediate use after you have initiated the transfer. Only the primary cardholder can load funds to the account. You can add value at Entrust Financial Credit Union's website, www.entrustfcu.org, or by calling toll free 1-866-760-3156.

The maximum Card value is $3,000.00. If the Card has $3,000.00 available for purchases or cash withdrawals, additional amounts may not be loaded onto the Card. The maximum amount that can be transferred to the Card at any one time is $3,000.00.

The minimum value that may be loaded onto the Card is $25.00.

The maximum amount allowable for cash withdrawals from ATMs is limited to three (3) ATM withdrawals per day with a maximum of $500.00 per day. The maximum amount allowable for cash advances from Financial Institutions that accept Visa debit cards is limited to three (3) cash advances per day with a maximum of $500.00 per day. The maximum amount allowable for cash back from POS transactions is $500.00 per day, not to exceed three (3) cash back POS transactions per day.

When you use the Card to obtain goods or services or to obtain cash, the merchant may attempt to obtain preauthorization from the Card account for the transaction. A five (5) day hold may be placed on the Card account for the amount of the preauthorization request. If the preauthorization request amount varies from the actual transaction posting amount, the preauthorization hold amount may remain on the account until the five (5) days expire. As a result, subsequent preauthorization requests against the hold amount may cause the transaction to be declined.

When you use your Card at an automated gas station pump you will be required to have a minimum of $99 USD available credit on the Card to enable gas to be dispensed. If your available balance is less than this, please pay the attendant in the gas station.

If you use the Card to make a telephone call this may require of minimum credit of $50.00.

If you use your Card to purchase meals or drinks at a restaurant or bar, a tip of 20% is factored into the amount when pre-authorizing these Card purchases. You will only be debited with the actual amount you spend. Hotels, auto rentals and cruise liners operated on a similar policy, at a rate of 15%.

Should you use your Card to pre-authorize a hotel reservation any amount requested in a pre-authorization will not be available to you to spend using the Card, although you will only be debited with the actual amount you spend.

When making a purchase on the phone, by mail or online the account information you provide must be the same account information as registered for the Card and any difference may lead to a declined authorization.

If you use the Card to buy goods and you want to use some other method of payment for part of the cost please advise the store in advance and use the Card first before paying any balance by other means. We do not guarantee that the establishment will fulfill this request.

Your Card will expire on the date embossed on the front of the Card, which will be not less than twenty-four (24) months after you purchased the Card. If your account is in good standing, has had activity in the last twelve (12) months and has enough of a balance to pay the reissue fee, the Card will automatically reissue to the address on our system.


Each time you use the Card the amount of the transaction will be debited from the account associated with the Card. You are not allowed to exceed the funded balance available on the Card by any individual or series of purchases. Nevertheless, if you make a purchase which exceeds the balance on the Card (an "overdraft"), you shall remain fully responsible for either the amount of the purchases approved or the cash withdrawn which exceeded the balance available on the Card. We also reserve the right to automatically debit such overdrafts from current or future transfers of funds to the Card, or any other account you maintain at Entrust Financial Credit Union.

You agree to immediately forward payment to us for all overdrafts. If the balance on the Card account remains at a negative balance for fifteen (15) days, you agree that we may initiate a transfer from any account you maintain at Entrust Financial Credit Union for the amount of such negative balance.

In the event that you elect to revoke consent to receive statements electronically a fee will apply and we reserve the right to terminate the Card account.

You may review the last five (5) Card transactions through our telephone member service number 1-866-760-3156.

Failure to Complete Transactions

We accept no liability to complete any transaction for which adequate funds have not been supplied by you according to the rules of the Card.

Likewise, we accept no responsibility for funding delays that are the result of late receipt of funding payments by you to the Card account.

We are not responsible if you do not have enough money in the Card account to complete a particular transaction. You may, however, split the purchases between the Card and another credit or debit card or cash. If you are uncertain as to your exact balance available on the Card, please review your Card account online, or call Entrust Financial CU member service to verify the Card's available balance prior to attempting to make a purchase.

Neither we nor any other bank or business will be liable to you for the failure to accept or honor the Card.

Disputes/Returns and Refunds

You agree to settle all disputes about purchases made using the Card with the merchant who honored the Card.

If you are entitled to a refund for any reason for goods or services obtained with the Card, you agree to accept credits to your Card account in place of cash.

International Transactions Foreign Currency Exchange Rates - If you use the card for an international transaction in foreign currency, Visa International will convert the transaction amount from the foreign currency amount to a United States Dollar amount, in accordance with its currency conversion procedures set forth in its Operating Regulations in effect at the time the transaction is processed. Currently those regulations provide that the currency exchange rate is either (1) a rate selected by Visa from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing dates, which rate may vary from the rate Visa itself receives, or (2) a government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date, plus a Currency Conversion Fee as discussed below. The currency exchange rate in effect on the processing date may differ from the rate in effect on the transaction date or on the posting date.

Foreign Transaction Fee - A Foreign Transaction fee is charged for each international transaction (i.e., a transaction occurring in any country outside the United States, Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands), whether or not currency is converted. The current Foreign Transaction fee is 2.50% of the transaction amount and will be displayed as a separate transaction on your statement.

Loss, Theft or Unauthorized Use

You are responsible for all authorized uses of your Card. Applicable law and our "zero liability" policy may protect you from liability for unauthorized purchases. You understand that your Card is not a credit card and is not protected by laws covering credit cards, such as the federal Truth in Lending Act.

Tell us at once if you believe the Card or PIN has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of minimizing your possible losses. If you believe that your card or PIN has been stolen, or that someone has accessed or may access money from your card without your permission, call us at 1-866-760-3156. If you fail to notify us promptly and you are grossly negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your card, you could lose all the money in the Card account.

Also, if your statement shows transactions that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the statement was made available to you online, you may not get back the money you lost after the sixty (60) days, if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If you were grossly negligent or committed fraud in handling the Card, the amount of money you could lose for unauthorized purchases could increase to the maximum allowed by law.

If your Card has been reported lost or stolen, we will close your account to keep losses down.

Generally, we will tell you the results of our investigation within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to forty-five (45) calendar days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will re-credit your Card account within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not re-credit your Card. If notice of an error involves an electronic fund transfer that was initiated other than in any state, territory or possession of the United States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or any political subdivision of any of the above; or involves an electronic fund transfer resulting from a POS debit card transaction, the applicable time periods for action shall be ninety (90) calendar days in place of the forty five (45) calendar days.
