I tried to activate my debit card with the phone number on the front of the card but it doesn't take my PIN?
Your PIN for activating your debit card is not the PIN number on the card. It is the PIN number for your telephone teller.
I have a charge from the gas station that I did not do! I did get gas but they have a hold on my debit card. What is this?
When you use your debit or credit card at the gas pump, they check your card to ensure there is anywhere from $75 to $150 available in your account. Once you pump gas this hold should release. If you swipe your card more than once, this hold will linger because you didn’t get gas for that swipe. This hold will release in 10 days. You can always give us a call at 501-375-5321 and we can review the account to determine if the hold can be released early.
I have a hotel hold on my card for 30 days, but I have already checked out of the hotel. Why is this still there?
If you use your debit card upon check-in for incidentals, the hotel places a hold on those funds. It could be for $50 or they could authorize $50 every day. When you check out using the same card this should come off hold, however if you pay through other means – cash, another card, travel agency (like expedia), or the hotel comps your room – this hold doesn’t release. The hotel does not send us notification when they release the hold. We recommend using a credit card for travel and entertainment transactions to prevent your funds from being held in your checking account.
Why does my debit card not work to rent a vehicle?
Telcoe blocks rental vehicle transactions on debit cards. We recommend using a credit card for rental purchases as the rental company can come back months later and take money from your account they say you owe regardless as to the balance in your account, causing you to go negative and have other items returned as insufficient funds.
I need to put a stop pay on my debit card for a merchant. How can I do this?
Unfortunately, we are unable to put stop pays on debit card transactions. The only way we can prevent them from charging your card number in the future is to close the debit card number and for you to get a new debit card. There is a $15 fee for a new card number.
Why should I order a box of checks?
When visiting a Telcoe branch all withdrawals from the teller come from your Telcoe savings account unless you write a check to ‘cash’ or yourself to give to the teller. Savings withdrawals are free for the first 2 and $5 each for 3rd or more. Card systems do go down occasional (the merchant, ATM machine, visa/mastercard, etc.) Having a paper check in your billfold can help you access cash without the need for a card.
Why was I charged $1 for a balance inquiry?
Any balance inquires done at an ATM machine does charge your account $1. To avoid the fee use our FREE mobile banking app, TEXT banking, or 24/7 Telephone Teller. We offer FREE checkbook registers to keep track of your account balance. Ask the teller for one.
How can I find a SURCHARGE FREE ATM machine?
Telcoe is a member of two different surcharge free ATM networks, https://co-opcreditunions.org/ and www.culiance.com. There are over 300,000 surcharge free locations nationwide. You can even text a zip code to 91989 to find a location nearest you.
How long do I need to be a MEMBER of Telcoe before I can apply for a loan?
