Debit cards are the most convenient way to access your DCCU checking account. Any qualified member who has a checking account with DCCU may take advantage of our debit cards.
Debit or credit?
Even though you are using your debit card, choose CREDIT. Your purchase will still be deducted from your checking account; however, you will need to sign for the transaction. This could potentially protect you from fraud.

EMV Chip Cards
Starting in 2016 DCCU will be issuing new debit cards (for those that are expiring) with an even more secure EMV chip card. The chip on the card generates a one-time use code for each transaction you make and doesn’t require your personal information to be stored or captured by the merchant. This helps lessen the chances of your information being compromised in the event of a merchant data breach or by skimming thieves.

Regular debit card
Use your DCCU debit card to pay for purchases from your checking account. You can use your debit card at stores, restaurants, to do transactions at ATMs, and to order merchandise by phone or mail.
UChoose Rewards debit card
Any qualified member who has eBonus checking account with DCCU may take advantage of our UChoose Rewards debit card.
UChoose Rewards is a unique program that rewards you for using your Dane County Credit Union rewards debit card. Earn one point for every two US dollars ($2) spent on eligible debit card signature purchases. We keep track of all the points you've earned and provide a monthly e-statement notification. Points can be redeemed anytime and are good for three years from the time they are earned.

You will earn points on all signature transactions after initial activation of your card. If you are planning a substantial purchase please contact DCCU for a temporary limit increase.
