20.20% currency conversion fee may be included in the purchase or withdrawal's overall total when using a debit card; however, the fee will be refunded within 3 business days contingent upon the account being open at the time of refund.
3Refund of out-of-network ATM fees charged by the other financial institution on ATM withdrawals from a Member Advantage Savings, Member Advantage Checking or Member Advantage Money Market account. Refund will be made in to the Member Advantage account of withdrawal. Account must be open and still considered Member Advantage at time of refund. Refunds processed daily and may take up to three days due to cut-off and posting times. If you share your Member Advantage account with another person, your maximum fee reimbursement will still be $3. Member Advantage eligibility and benefits are subject to change.
4This service is not available for lost or stolen BECU debit cards, business debit cards, ATM cards, or credit cards. Replacing your current debit card online will change your debit card number, expiration date, and security code. You will receive a new PIN in a separate mailer within 7-10 business days, or you can choose your own PIN in Online Banking by visiting the Manage Your Debit Card page. Your existing debit card will be deactivated once you activate your new debit card.
5Only activate the card after you have possession.
6Recurring transactions may still process while the debit card is paused. BECU is not responsible for any fees that may result from recurring transactions that do or do not process as a result of a paused debit card. If your card is lost, stolen, or you suspect fraud, contact us immediately at 1-800-233-2328.
7Departure date can't be more than 60 days from date of initial reporting. Only one digital travel alert can be set during the same time period. If the trip is longer than 90 days, or, if there are multiple account holders traveling at once (e.g., your spouse is on a business trip while the rest of the family heads to Mexico), please reach us by phone or via secure message.
8Once the replacement card is activated, the new expiration date is automatically updated with participating merchants. Cards that have been reissued due to fraud or because of being lost or stolen are not eligible for this service as those cards will have new card numbers. If you aren't sure if a merchant is participating in ABU, be sure to review your stored card information to verify it's been updated and payment is not missed. BECU will not be responsible for any missed payments. Enrollment in this service is automatic. If you'd like to opt out, you can do so by contacting us.
