Benefits of the New BFCU Card App:
Benchmark has seen a significant increase in Credit Card and Debit Card transactions by our members. Why the card boom? Many consumers are turning to cards; instead of cash, as a low-touch and secure way to conduct transactions during COVID-19. And with spring coming, we know members are venturing out more. Here’s how to keep your cards safe, and make your life easier using the new BFCU Cards App available for FREE download on Google Play and the Apple Store.
Lock & Unlock Instantly
Did you know you can lock and unlock your Benchmark Credit and Debit Cards instantly as you use them, even at the checkout counter? This can be safer than using cash! And it’s a great option for low-touch transactions, while protecting you from identity theft.
Lock It While You Look
We’ve all done it…lost our Credit or Debit Card, only to find it a little later in your pants pocket or cupholder of your car. If you’re like many folks, you immediately panicked and cancelled your card which means you now have to wait for a new one. Here’s an alternative: The BFCU Cards App lets you lock your Benchmark Credit and Debit Cards instantly, so they’re safe while you look for them. All you have to do, is simply register your Benchmark Cards on the BFCU Cards App, today!
Isolate Your Debit Card Transactions
Don’t you hate it when your financial statement lists your Debit Card transactions all together with your other account transactions such as withdrawals & deposits? With the BFCU Cards App, you can easily see your Debit Card transactions on their own. Sometimes it’s good to feel isolated!
Don’t Depend on Snail Mail
Let’s face it: The mail is slow these days. Take a load off your mind by paying your Benchmark Credit Card via the BFCU Cards App…quick, easy, done! You’ll even receive an email confirmation of your payment to the email provided when you setup your BFCU Card App.
Security While Traveling
As you resume your travels, let us know your travel plans to ensure uninterrupted access to your Benchmark Credit & Debit Cards. Our fraud protection program will be alerted to transactions out of your normal pattern, such as from another state or country and will suspend access to your cards until they can confirm validity of said transactions, so don’t leave home without first notifying Benchmark of your travel plans. Placing a travel notification on your card(s) is simple with our new BFCU Card App; once you’ve registered your card(s), you can log into the app 24/7 to setup travel notifications that allow you to enter your departure and return dates; as well as select US or outside US travel and enter your destination. You can travel with the security of knowing that access to your Benchmark Card(s) will be uninterrupted…giving you more time to enjoy your vacation!
