Ready when you are.

In today's world, you expect immediate solutions. We do, too. That's why we offer Instant Issue Visa® debit cards*. Just walk in, open an account or request a new debit card, and walk out with the new card in-hand...instantly! No more waiting to receive a card in the mail; no more inconvenience, having to carry cash or checks until a new card is received. 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?

We've got your covered.

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? Anytime you suspect your card has been lost or stolen, contact the bank as soon as possible to notify us. In the meantime, if you use GSBs mobile app or GSB Online Banking you can deactivate your card the moment you realize it's been lost or stolen. Click here to learn how.

Pre-authorization Tips

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 for a fuel purchase, we recommend that you pre-pay inside the store instead of paying at the pump.
