Secure Your Holiday Spending with Card Controls

As the holiday season approaches, the air is filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation. It's a time for creating lasting memories, enjoying the company of loved ones, and exchanging heartfelt gifts. However, amidst the festive cheer, it's crucial to remain vigilant about the security of your financial transactions. At Five Points Bank, we recognize the importance of safeguarding your finances, which is why we offer comprehensive card control features to help you stay protected during the hustle and bustle of the holiday shopping season.

Here's how leveraging our card control functionalities can contribute to a secure and worry-free holiday shopping experience:

  1. Real-time Monitoring: With our card control options, you can monitor your card activity in real time. Receive instant alerts for every transaction made using your card, enabling you to stay informed about any unauthorized or suspicious charges. By keeping a close eye on your card activity, you can quickly identify any discrepancies and take immediate action to protect your finances.
  2. Temporary Card Freezes: Planning to travel or take a break during the holiday season? Our card control features allow you to temporarily freeze your card if it's misplaced or you suspect unauthorized use. This temporary freeze adds an extra layer of security, giving you peace of mind while you're away, knowing that your card cannot be used for any unauthorized transactions.
  3. Customized Spending Limits: Stay within your budget by setting personalized spending limits on your card. Whether you're planning a shopping spree or limiting your holiday expenses, our card control functionalities empower you to define specific transaction limits for your card. This feature not only helps you manage your spending but also reduces the risk of potential fraudulent activities.
  4. Geographic Restrictions: Worried about unauthorized transactions occurring in unfamiliar locations? Our card control options allow you to set geographical restrictions, enabling your card to be used only in specific regions or locations of your choice. By restricting the usage to designated areas, you can minimize the risk of fraudulent transactions occurring in distant or unknown places.
  5. Instant Card Deactivation: In the unfortunate event of a lost or stolen card, you can instantly deactivate your card through our card control feature. This immediate action prevents any unauthorized access to your funds and ensures that your financial assets remain secure. You can then proceed with the necessary steps to request a replacement card, all while safeguarding your finances from potential misuse.

At Five Points Bank, we prioritize the security and peace of mind of our customers, especially during the holiday season. By utilizing our advanced card control features, you can shop with confidence, knowing that your financial transactions are protected and closely monitored every step of the way.
