- You already have a Dublin National Bank checking account in good standing, or are a new customer.
- You have no more than 12 NSFs (non-sufficient funds) or returned checks in the past 12 months.
- Your loans at DNB (if any) are in good standing.
- You are 18 years of age or older (unless your parent is a joint owner on the account and gives written permission for you to receive a card and accepts responsibility for purchases made with the card. Exceptions require management approval.)
NOTE: The bank may obtain a current credit report upon receipt of an application.
How do I apply for a VISA Debit
A: Pick up an application form in the DNB lobby or call, email or fax a request and we will send one to you. Return the application in person or by mail. (If you choose not to return it to the bank in person, we will call to confirm your application and identifying information.) After approval, you will receive your card in the mail within 7 to 10 days. (Our address information may be found at the end of this document.)
Q: Can I choose my own PIN (Personal Identification Number)?
A: A number will be assigned to you. If you wish to change your PIN, you may do so in two ways: by using the “Change PIN” command on our ATM or by calling 1-800-851-4859. We encourage you to keep your PIN private. The bank does not have access to your number.
Q: What if I forget my PIN or want to change it?
A: We can assist you to set up a new number.
will I get my card?
A: Your card will arrive in the mail within a few days after your order is placed.
Q: My spouse and I have a joint checking account. Will we have separate
A: Yes. You will have separate cards linked to your joint account.
Q: How do I activate my card?
A: You will make an ATM (Automatic Teller Machine) transaction (such as withdrawing cash or checking your account balance) from any ATM using your PIN. That action will activate your card. From then on, you can use it with your PIN or by signing a receipt. You may also activate your card by calling the toll free number printed on the sticker on the front of your card and follow the prompts. After you activate your card, you can assign the PIN of your choice by calling 1-800-851-4859 or by using the “Change PIN” feature at Dublin National Bank’s ATM machine.
Q: Should I treat my card as a credit card or as a debit card when I am
asked by a merchant or when I swipe my card through the merchant’s terminal?
A: If you wish to withdraw cash with your purchase, you must select DEBIT and enter your PIN. Otherwise you can select CREDIT and sign the receipt.
Q: Is there a limit on how much I can purchase on my VISA Debit Card?
A: If you use your card at an ATM, you may withdraw a maximum of $300.00 per day per card or your account balance (whichever is less). You may use the VISA Debit Card to purchase up to $1,500.00 per day per card, if your available balance is sufficient to cover the total amount of your purchases. Your total of ATM and POS (point of sale) purchases may not total more than $1,800.00 for the day unless you contact us in advance to increase your maximum.
Q: What is the cost of the card?
A: There is a one-time set-up fee of $10 per account. There is no additional charge for up to two cards. Subsequent cards and replacement cards are $5 each. If you have a Star Account or Gold Star Account at Dublin National Bank, your set-up fee will be waived.
Q: Can I put a stop-payment on a VISA Debit Card transaction?
A: No. Your VISA Debit Card places an immediate “hold” for that amount on your checking account.
Q: What functions will result in an authorized hold on my account?
A: Making reservations at a hotel would result in a hold because at the time you place the reservation, you may not know if you will stay a day longer, order from room service or place local calls. The hotel is protected by placing a temporary hold for an amount greater than the room rates. The same is true at a restaurant. When you give the waiter your card, the tip has not been added to it. A temporary hold for an additional 15 to 20 percent might be placed on your account until the transaction is completed. The estimated totals could stay on the system for one to three days until the clearing item for the amount reaches the issuer. The same authorized hold might result from the purchase of airline tickets, car rentals, gasoline or online purchases.
Q: Where can I use my VISA Debit Card?
A: You may use your card any place that accepts Visa. This includes merchants both with and without an electronic terminal to authorize the transaction. When using the card, you (the cardholder) must verify your identity by signing a receipt at the point of sale, or entering your PIN.
Q: How does the card work?
A: At ATMs, the VISA Debit Card works just like a regular ATM card when you use your PIN number. At stores, restaurants and other merchants, it works like a check. Present the card, sign the receipt or enter your PIN number and your purchase is deducted from your checking account.
Q: Can I get money back when I make a purchase?
A: Yes, if you select DEBIT and enter your PIN when you make a purchase at most merchants.
Q: What if I lose my card or it is stolen?
A: Immediately report the loss or theft by calling VISA at 1-800-528-2273. You must provide your debit card number.
I liable for purchases made on my stolen debit card?
A: You will have Zero Liability Protection, the same protection as your credit card.* You will owe nothing for unauthorized charges. We encourage you to notify Visa as soon as possible if your card is lost or stolen.
* Applies to U.S.-issued cards only. VISA’s Zero Liability Protection does not apply to ATM transactions or to PIN transactions not processed by Visa. For more details, read the Regulation E disclosure which has been provided to you.
Q: What if I don’t know my card has been stolen?
A: By closely monitoring your daily activity online, by phone, or on your monthly account statement, you will be aware of what purchases have been made on your card. If you find purchases that you did not make or did not authorize, contact VISA immediately. Our free Internet Bank will allow you quick and easy access to all your account information. Go to www.dublinnationalbank.com. Or you can check your account activity by calling our 24-hour Dublin Telebank at (888) 471-3891. If you haven’t already set up your accounts online or on the telebank, we encourage you to do so. If you need help, just call us.
Q: The “Verified by Visa” logo appears on some internet sites where I
shop. What is it?
A: It is an extra layer of fraud protection for internet-based purchases. You may enroll by visiting the Verified by Visa website at https://usa.visa.com/personal/security/vbv/index.html. You will assign yourself your own unique PIN. After you are signed up, if you are shopping online with a merchant who participates in Verified by Visa, you will be prompted to enter your PIN before the transaction is approved. You must enroll to take advantage of this fraud protection; it is not automatic.
already have a Dublin National Bank ATM card. Can I continue using it if I
choose not to apply for a VISA Debit Card?
A: Yes. However your ATM card issued to you by Dublin National Bank has an expiration date. You can easily switch to a new card by filling out the simple application form.
Q: What fees are associated with the use of an ATM card or a debit card?
A: There is no charge to use our ATM, which is located on the front of the Dublin National Bank building. When you use your card at any other ATM machine, Dublin National Bank will assesses a fee of $1. Most other ATM owners assess a surcharge of $1.50 to $2.50 when you use their machine. Through a special agreement with Frost Bank, however, you will not have a surcharge when you use your Dublin National Bank ATM card in their machines.
