Please select Credit When Using Your MasterCard® Debit Card

So, you are at the gas pump, you swipe your debit card and a screen pops up asking you to choose “credit or debit?” You think to yourself, I’m not using my credit card; I’m using   my debit card you silly machine…so debit.

The truth is, when using your debit card, choosing between credit and debit has nothing to do with the type of card, but rather the type of transaction.  Choosing “credit” doesn’t actually mean credit card; the money is still deducted right from your checking account.

Here’s a little bit about the difference.
Debit:  When you select debit you are asked to enter your four-digit PIN (personal identification number) and you do not sign for your purchase. Certain stores allow customers to receive cash back when debit is chosen and you can also withdraw cash from an ATM using your debit card and PIN.
Credit:   When you select credit, you are typically required to sign for your transaction and you do not enter your PIN. There are a few exceptions where a signature is not needed, such as when you pay-at-the-pump or when your purchase is under a certain dollar amount (typically $25 or less.)   In these cases you simply push credit and you are on your way.

Both credit and debit transactions are deducted right from your checking account which makes using your debit card equivalent to writing a check.  However, your debit card provides more convenience and security.   We Recommend Selecting Credit when you use your card.  This gives you security protections that help prevent, detect and resolve fraud.  MasterCard® offers cardholders what is called Zero Liability, which protects you from unauthorized charges. Any funds taken from your account due to fraudulent use will be returned to you. This makes credit the safer option.
