Visa Debit / Prepaid-Cards

Visa Debit

Everyone needs a convenient debit card. Our Visa® debit card gives you 24-hour access to your checking account for easy purchases almost everywhere. Your purchases are automatically deducted from your checking account, and every transaction is detailed on your account statement. Easy, right?

All of our VISA® debit cards come with protection through Card Sentry, our proactive risk management tool. Card Sentry evaluates your purchase history and fraud patterns to identify uncharacteristic activity on your card. If fraud is detected, a fraud analyst will notify you and the bank of the suspected activity.

If you already have a Gothenburg State Bank Visa® debit card make sure it remains available as you travel. 

Traveling? If you are planning to take a trip outside the contiguous states of Nebraska or where you don’t regularly travel, contact us before you leave to make sure your service remains uninterrupted.

How to Report a lost or Stolen Debit Card? To report a stolen debit card call the bank during regular business hours. If you use GSBs mobile app, you can deactivate your card the moment you realize it's been lost or stolen.

Benefits of a Gothenburg State Bank Visa® debit card:

  • Free with some checking accounts, see comparison
  • 24-hour access to account
  • Widely accepted by merchants around the world
  • Reduces check writing and check expenses
  • Transactions itemized on your statement

Benefits of Selecting “Credit” Instead of “Debit”

Ever wonder the difference? When you use credit you get the following:

  • Signature Verification. By matching your signature on the back of your Gothenburg State Bank VISA debit card with the signature on the sales slip, you’ll appreciate knowing that the sales clerk verified that you are the owner of the card.
  • No PIN Necessary. A credit type transaction requires your signature. In situations where you might need to worry of “shoulder surfers” who capture your PIN, you might want to choose credit. Your PIN is very private; please do not keep a note of it with your card. Always protect the security of your PIN. If you feel that your PIN has been jeopardized, please bring in your card, we will be happy to help you change it.

Pre-authorizationTips

Some retailers (hotels, restaurants, and gas stations) pre-authorize/hold funds based on the expected final transaction amount. For your card to be accepted, the preauthorized amount must be available on your card. If you would like to use your card to pay fora fuel purchase, we recommend that you pre-pay inside the store instead of paying at the pump.
