Citizens VISA® Check Card
The Smart Way To Pay
Easy to Use
Present your Citizens Bank Visa® Check Card* to make a purchase - or get cash - and the amount will be deducted directly from your checking account. It's not a credit card, but it offers you all the payment convenience of one. You'll get a receipt for easy record keeping, and every transaction is shown on your monthly checking statement.
Use it everywhere Visa® cards are welcome to get cash, groceries, and gas...anytime you want to pay for a purchase right from your checking account. It adds the worldwide acceptance and buying power of a Visa® card to your existing checking account.
Your Visa® Check Card allows you to withdraw available funds from your checking account without writing a check. Your Visa Check Card also works like an ATM Card whenever you need cash.
Because a Visa® Check Card* is a part of the Visa® Network, you have significant protection against unauthorized use...even if your card is lost or stolen.
To take advantage of this convenient service, please stop by one of our Citizens Bank offices to apply.

DEBIT CARDS & FOREIGN TRANSACTIONS
In order to protect you and to ensure the validity of your Visa debit card transactions, Citizens Bank has placed a block on a number of foreign countries that have been identified as high risk for fraud. These countries are blocked from Internet and non-PIN (signature) transactions. Your card will still work at an ATM or merchant if you use your personal identification number (PIN).
If you plan on traveling out of country, please call the bank and we will take all necessary steps to make sure your debit transactions are processed smoothly. Unusual spending habits may cause Visa to freeze your card in an effort to protect you from fraud. However, using your Citizens Bank debit card on your international travels is a safe and convenient way to get cash from an ATM and pay for dining, lodging and purchases. Informing the bank in advance of your travels will allow us to monitor your account.
When using your debit card abroad, your account will be charged for the U.S. Dollar equivalent of your international transaction. Citizens Bank does not determine the exchange rate. This is determined by the overseas merchant’s financial institution or ATM network that is used.
If you have any questions regarding the use of your Citizens Bank debit card for foreign transactions, please contact our Electronic Banking Department at 304.636.4095 or e-mail CustomerService@citizenswv.com.
