    When you say debit card transactions does this include transactions using the debit card as a charge?
    What is the difference between debit and charge using the debit card? They both debit a checking account immediately.

    • SIU Credit Union -

      Hi Margaret,

      Yes, you are correct. Every purchase made with your SIUCU Debit Card account will go toward accumulating points in SIUCU Rewards. The difference in how they run is how they are processed through the point-of-sale at a merchant.

      We prefer, if able, to have you run the card as a credit as a precaution. This helps protect you further in the case your card is compromised if a merchant has a data leak, they may have your PIN as well. It is much harder for Visa to prove that any fraudulent transaction wasn’t completed by you in that case because your PIN is personal to you.

    My debit card has a different account number than my husband’s. If we both sign up, will the points be accrued separately or will they be combined?

    • Posted by: SIUCU -

      Thank you for the inquiry. If you’re using two (or more) different cards that access the same checking account, your points will be combined into one account.

  • Connie Shanahan -

    Are you doing away with Buzz Points, then? Can we still close out those accounts?

    • Posted by: SIUCU -

      Buzz Points has been discontinued as of March 31st. Members existing Buzz Points balance, along with any additional debit card transactions done after April 1st have been included in everyone’s new SIUCU Rewards account balance.
