Paying for Purchases with Your ATM Card
Your ATM card also is a type of debit card that may be used for purchases at "point of sale" terminals at stores, with the payment coming automatically from your bank account. Contact your financial institution if you have questions about using your ATM card or debit card for purchases.
For more information about debit cards in general, see "Playing Your Cards Right: Smart Ways To Use Credit and Debit Cards," in the Fall 2002 issue of FDIC Consumer News, which is available online at www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/news/cnfall02/index.html.
