AFCU & You Blog

October 15 is International Credit Union Day and we’re celebrating the spirit of the global credit union movement. We celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day) to raise awareness about what it means for members around the world to have a credit union as their financial partner. This year's global health crisis has been trying for many communities around the world, but credit unions stayed true to their cooperative principles and stepped up during this time of economic uncertainty.

This year's ICU Day theme “Inspiring hope for a global community” reflects how credit unions contribute to a brighter future by providing financial empowerment to people all over the world through financial services, education and support.

Join Aerospace Federal Credit Union in celebrating ICU Day with our free coloring page.

A Safer Way to Pay

Greg Moran on October 2, 2020  |  0 comments

We are pleased to announce that you can now use your Aerospace Federal Credit Union credit or debit card in most popular digital wallets! Digital wallets help protect the security of your credit or debit card number by utilizing an alternate card number tied to your device along with a one-time passcode when making purchases using your smartphone, tablet or watch devices. Securely store your Aerospace Federal Credit Union Visa® debit or credit card in your device’s digital wallet for quick checkouts when shopping in-store or online (online payments are based on the features of digital wallet provider. See digital wallet provider’s website for availability details).

Digital wallet payments are made without having to touch a Point of Sale (POS) terminal, so there is no need to swipe, sign, enter a PIN code, or insert your card into a chip reader to complete a transaction. Simply hold your mobile device next to the POS terminal and you’re done (payment requirements vary based on merchant’s POS terminal configuration). Look for the contactless symbol on POS terminals when you make in-store purchases.

Contactless payments are safe, easy, convenient, and secure!  Paying with a digital wallet is safer than giving the store your card number and PIN. Transactions are validated by a number that is unique to each device and card. This encrypted number is used to authorize purchases so your card number and PIN are never transferred or stored with the merchant, reducing the likelihood of your card being compromised. 

Aerospace Federal Credit Union supports the following digital wallets: Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, Garmin Pay and Fitbit Pay.
