DEBIT CARDS

When it comes to making purchases, you deserve simplicity. Shop with your Zeal Credit Union VISA® Debit card anywhere you see the VISA® logo and the amount will be deducted directly from your checking account. What is even more convenient is your VISA Debit Card also works as an ATM card.

With our CO-OP Network of ATMs, you’ll have access to over 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs in the U.S. and Canada (Canadian ATM withdrawals are not surcharge free). Put simply, it’s easy to transfer money between your accounts, make deposits and withdraw cash at any time, day or night. With a Zeal Credit Union VISA Debit Card, you’re also eligible for Overdraft Privilege. Overdraft Privilege pays for items that would not normally clear your checking account because of insufficient funds.

OVERDRAFT PRIVILEGE RULES & REGULATIONS

  • You must deposit an amount equal to or more than the amount of discretionary Overdraft Privilege extended to you.
  • You must bring your account to a positive End of Day balance within every 54-day period. A zero balance is not considered to be a positive balance.
  • You must not be in default on any loan or other obligation to Zeal Credit Union.
  • You must not be subject to any legal or administrative order or levy.
  • Overdraft Privilege is not a line of credit, but a courtesy to protect you if you inadvertently overdraw your account. We have the discretion to pay the overdraft, subject to the limit of your Overdraft Privilege and the amount of the overdraft fee. Zeal Credit Union is not obligated to pay any item presented for payment if your account does not contain sufficient available funds. Any discretionary payment (or other negotiation or processing) by Zeal Credit Union of any non-sufficient item does not obligate Zeal Credit Union to pay any additional non-sufficient fund items, or to provide prior notice of its decision to refuse to pay such items.
  • Zeal Credit Union will consider, as a discretionary courtesy and not a right or obligation, approving your reasonable overdrafts. This privilege will generally be limited to a maximum of $500 in negative balances for member checking accounts. Any and all fees and charges, including without limitation the non-sufficient funds fees (as set forth in our fee schedules), will be included. Overdrafts written above and beyond Zeal Credit Union’s established limit may result in a check or checks being returned to the Payee.

***International currency conversion fee applies to transactions originated by an out of country merchant.
