Visa Account Updater

Visa® Account Updater (VAU) is an account updating service in which all card issuers are required to participate. It helps facilitate uninterrupted processing of your recurring payments when your debit card expires or if it’s lost, stolen, or compromised and a new card is issued.

The service updates relevant card data such as card numbers and expiration dates to participating merchants only after you have requested they process a recurring payment or payments.

Your A+FCU Visa Debit Card is automatically enrolled in VAU at no charge.*

Travel Notifications

Before traveling, add a travel notification to reduce the chances of your debit card being declined for unusual activity.

Easily submit a Travel Notification through A+ Online Banking or the A+ Mobile App. After logging in, select Menu > Services > Travel Notification. Fill out the form to say when and where you’ll be using the card.

The Travel Notification must be received two business days prior to your first travel date.

*If you would like to opt out of the Visa Account Updater Service, call us at 512.302.6800 or send us a secure message through A+ Online Banking or the A+ Mobile App. Please include your name and the last four digits of your card number.

Travel Notification does not guarantee authorization of charges and transactions will still be monitored for potential fraudulent activity.

Often times when a debit card is being declined with online orders, the zip code is not matching up. Verify that your billing address is the one linked to your A+FCU account and debit card.

If your debit card is declining with an in-person purchase, it’s possible your card is being blocked for fraud or that you have exceeded your daily PIN amount. Call our Contact Center at 512.302.6800 with any questions you may have about your debit card.

You can use your A+FCU debit card with your PIN (including ATM machines) up to $600 per day.

If you’ve reached this limit, run your debit card as ‘credit’. This sometimes looks like “No Pin” or simply selecting the green button at a cash register. Ask the cashier if you’re not sure. This limit doesn’t apply to online transactions.

A chip card has a microchip on the front and the traditional magnetic stripe on the back. It may also be called an EMV card. The microchip provides additional security when used at chip-activated terminals or ATMs. The chip card is widely accepted in over 130 countries worldwide.

The chip card is more secure for in-store purchases than traditional cards and is more difficult for fraud organizations to target card holders and businesses. A unique one-time code is generated for each transaction and makes it virtually impossible to replicate – giving you greater security and peace of mind when making store purchases. Of course, you’re still protected against unauthorized use with Visa’s Zero Liability policy.

Visa’s Zero Liability Policy covers US-issued cards and does not apply to certain commercial card transactions or any transactions not processed by Visa. You must notify A+ Federal Credit Union immediately of any unauthorized use.
