On May 1st, we launched another free and valuable service to our membership base—Digital Wallet services. Digital Wallet encompasses all of our contactless and secure mobile payment services, which include Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Fitbit, and Garmin smartwatches.
Now, I am not the most tech-savvy consumer, but I found these services to be easy and convenient. A digital wallet allows you to make secure payments at a participating retailer right from your mobile device. You can load both your AFFCU Debit Card and Credit Card onto your smartphone or smartwatch. Once your card is loaded into your digital wallet, it is also protected by your device’s security features and is encrypted for added safety. And don’t worry, your card information is never stored or shared at checkout, so you reduce the chance of fraud.
Payments made with digital wallet are contactless, so there’s no need to swipe or insert your card in a point-of-sale system. You just wave your phone or watch over the device and the payment goes through. With a digital wallet, your transactions at the store, at the gas pump, or even online will be smooth and quick.
You can even pay friends and family instantly for free! I’m sure I’ll be getting lots of requests after writing that statement.
Yes, this is a free service to use, so please take some time and upload your AFFCU card to the digital wallet of your choice. You’ll be happy you did.
In service I remain,
