The Debit Card works like a check allowing you to purchase items worldwide. Unlike a credit card that acts like a loan, a debit card accesses your checking account directly. Present your NCACU debit card to make a purchase anywhere in the country that offers MasterCard and the transaction will clear your checking account directly as if you have written a check. There are no fees and the card is accepted by merchants around the world.
Visa Credit Cards
NCACU has two credit card options. Our Visa Classic at 12.90 % and Visa Gold at 10.90% are available to all members depending on qualifications and credit records. There is no annual fee with either card.
Use your debit card the same way you use your Visa card without any monthly interest expense.
Card Lost or Stolen?
If your card is ever lost or stolen, call 1-800-828-3901 to report your card. You may be liable for fraudulent charges if you don’t report your missing card in a timely fashion.
Visa Gift Cards
Visa Gift cards make the perfect gift. Members pay $3.00 purchase fee for each card and can purchase the card in any denomination up to $500. Visa Gift cards can be used like cash. (Some restrictions do apply at the gas pump and ATM machines).

Courtesy Pay protects you from the embarrassment of returned checks, and merchant returned checks.

If additional checks are written when the balance is deficient an additional fee of $28 will apply. To qualify for Courtesy Pay your account has to be open for at least 60 days with the credit union. For more information on Courtesy Pay contact your local NCACU branch.

The overdraft reimbursement option is when you actually apply for a revolving loan to cover an insufficient balance in your checking account. This service has credit score requirements, income verification, credit report and a signed contract just like a regular unsecured loan. This loan usually has a high interest attached and may be subject to service charges.
