Plastic or cash? 

Once upon a time, the exchange of cash was as normal as, well, sitting next to someone at the movie theater. But today, we're asked to keep human contact to a minimum, and adopt other habits to help stop the spread of germs, virus and disease. Decreasing (or eliminating) the use of cash is one example. Using your Skyward Visa Debit card is the perfect alternative. It’s your safer option to cash.

Debit Card and cash

Debit Cards vs Cash

When you need access to the funds in your checking account, using your debit card has so many more advantages for your security and protection (both physically and financially). Lose your cash-- forget it. Lose your debit card -- get it replaced! Plus, it's difficult to disinfect your dollar bills. Your debit card can easily be cleaned with a disinfectant wipe. With card terminals at every purchase point, in many cases you can also complete your transaction without others handling your card. It just makes more sense to use your debit card in place of cash wherever you spend money. 

Use your Skyward Visa Debit Card all your purchases.

  • Shopping Online: Shop securely online for clothes, home decor, groceries, electronics, cosmetics, toys
  • Purchase points like pharmacies, grocery stores, and gas stations
  • Ordering Take Out
  • Making small or large purchases
  • ATM access for balance inquiries and when you absolutely need cash in your wallet

Use your debit card anywhere a Visa card is accepted—but without paying interest as you would with a credit card.

When we say Free, we mean it.

Our Visa Debit cards are protected with Visa's Zero Liability Policy.
