What’s the difference between a debit card and an ATM card?

An ATM card can only be used at an ATM terminal to withdraw or deposit money, or at certain merchants who accept ATM transactions. A debit card can be used at ATMs as well, but can also be used to make purchases online, in stores, and at restaurants just like a credit card. However, these purchases are deducted immediately from your checking account.

A free debit card is provided when you open a checking account with Stanford FCU. Check out our checking account options to determine which account is right for you. The first box of checks is free!
