CardValet

Manage your debit and credit cards easily from your mobile phone. The BFCU CardValet App lets you control usage and spending on the go. Once you download the App, control of your cards is always just a few taps away.

Protect your card from fraud

A lost or stolen card is just one area of concern in today's world where identity theft, skimming and other attacks are an unfortunate reality. If you believe your BFCU debit or credit card has been lost or stolen you can immediately block the card from transactions & either turn the card back on when it's located or use the app to report the lost/stolen card. When your card is "off", no withdrawals or purchases will be approved; so turning your card off when you know you aren't going to be using it can help safeguard against fraud.

Control spending & monitor finances

If you are trying to establish or stick to a budget, CardValet can help. Set spending limits for general use or specify by merchant types such as gas, groceries or retail stores. Going on vacation or holiday shopping? Simply update your transaction controls to fit your spending needs. You can review your balances and transactions from anywhere using the CardValet App.
