Debit versus Credit — What is the difference?

Credit and debit cards are a convenient way to pay for items without having to hassle with cash or checks. Both are usually widely accepted at most merchants and come with security features that can help prevent fraud. The biggest difference between a debit and credit card is where the funds that back the card are sourced. 

A credit card allows you to borrow money from Members Choice or another financial institution that issues credit cards. The borrowed funds carry an interest rate you agree to pay along with the money spent on the card.

A debit card is funded or paid by deducting money directly from your checking account. In contrast to a credit card, debit cards won’t incur fees unless the cardholder overdraws the account. Using a debit card is a good way to stay on a budget and keep yourself aware of your account balance.

Contactless Transactions – Tap for Speed & Security

With built-in chip security, contactless payments let you breeze through the line when you're on-the-go. Tap to pay at more places than ever before with your Members Choice Debit Mastercard. Every day at millions of stores worldwide, shoppers are getting through line 10x faster by tapping contactless cards. Just look for the contactless symbol when you shop.  

 
Important: If you recently received a new Members Choice Debit Mastercard in the mail, please activate and/or use your new card. Once activated, your card will work as a PIN or credit transaction immediately. As a reminder, please be sure to update your card information with any automatic debits or merchants using your old card number.

We will gladly re-PIN your card. Simply call 281.398.9900 or visit a branch during our normal business hours. If you have not received your new card, please contact us.

Yes. If the terminal is not chip-enabled, you will need to swipe your card’s magnetic stripe. Online purchases still work the same way they did with your old card too.
Yes. Use your chip card at the exact same merchants you do now by inserting the card into card terminals that are chip-enabled or swiping your card at merchant locations that have not yet switched to chip-enabled card terminals. You can also use your card as you did before for online payments, telephone payments and at ATMs.
Just look for the universal contactless symbol at checkout or ask the cashier if you can pay by tapping. If they do not yet offer contactless, this card can be used normally at any merchant that accepts Mastercard.

Contactless payments require different information than those made over the phone or online. The cardholder’s name, three digit security code on the back of the card, and billing information like zip code are never transmitted when the card is used. Instead, the account information and a one-time-only code are sent from the card to the reader to identify that transaction.
 
Mastercard uses advanced fraud detection systems and artificial intelligence to spot suspicious activity and stop fraud in its tracks.

  1. Be careful where you keep your card. Card readers are usually waved at back pockets and purses when you are not looking; keep cards close and out of easy access for scanning. 
  2. There are several RFID sleeves and wallets available for purchase. These products cover the card and scramble the signal to prevent scanning. 
  3. Use a wallet app on your phone that is protected with a strong PIN. This means you can leave your card at home and safe from scanning. 
  4. Set alerts on your card account and regularly check your balance in online banking. When you see something suspicious, turn your card off and alert Mastercard and/or Members Choice as soon as possible.
