New Visa Debit Card with Tap to Pay!


New Technology
AFCU is pleased to offer our new Visa® Debit Card featuring tap to pay contactless payments. These cards provide an easy and secure way to make purchases. Simply tap the chip area of the card on the payment terminal where and when prompted and receive confirmation that the payment has been processed.*

New Design
Our redesigned Visa Debit Card features an image of DiskSat, a new circular satellite design that provides more power and aperture than it's CubeSat predecessor.^ The concept and development of the DiskSat platform is the work of the Mission Systems Engineering Division of The Aerospace Corporation, who built on the successes of the CubeSat satellites that came before it. We couldn’t think of a better successor to our original EMV Visa Debit Card design, which featured the CubeSat imagery. Aerospace Federal Credit Union is proud to feature this cutting-edge technology on our new Visa Debit Card!

Important Information
Important card information such as your name, card number and expiration date are now displayed on the back of the card, allowing more space on the front of the card for the DiskSat image.

AFCU members who are Visa Debit Cardholders will receive their new cards via the U.S. Postal Service when their existing cards are due to expire beginning in May 2024.

Your card number and Personal Identification number (PIN) will stay the same as your existing card, however your card will have a new expiration date. Be sure to update your card information with the new expiration date wherever you have automatic payments.

You will continue to have access to your past debit card purchase transactions and deposit information in AeroAccess Online and Mobile Banking.

We think you will enjoy the new look, features, security and convenience of our new Visa Debit Card. If you would like to receive your new Visa Debit Card before your current card expires, please call AFCU Member Services at (800) 795-2325, option 5.
