●  Department Stores
●  Internet Merchants
●  Doctor's Offices

Purchase amounts are automatically deducted from your checking account so--unlike a credit card--you won't incur interest charges, accumulate debt, or create monthly bills to pay.

Save Time by using your card to pay bills automatically
From Internet and cell phone to health club dues and commuter passes, more and more service providers are offering the convenience of automatic bill payments.  Simply call your service providers to set up automatic payments using the Debit MasterCard.  It ensures your recurring bills are paid on time, every time.

Simplify your record keeping
Each time you use the Carter Bank & Trust Debit MasterCard for a purchase or any other transaction, information about the transaction will be listed on your checking account statement.  With each purchase you make, you'll have a record of the merchant name, the purchase date, and the amount spent--information that can make it easier to track your spending and manage your budget.

Access your checking account at home and abroad
The Carter Bank & Trust Debit MasterCard can be used to get cash through more than a million ATMs that accept MasterCard.
Save money when traveling outside of the United States
Exchange rates for cash access at international ATMs are often better than the rates available at foreign banks and currency exchanges kiosks.  Often you'll receive favorable exchange rates when making purchases at millions of locations abroad where Debit MasterCard is accepted.

Enjoy added security and protection
Using the Carter Bank & Trust Debit MasterCard is safer than carrying a lot of cash and more convenient than writing checks.  You can shop with confidence--on the Internet, by phone, or in person--knowing you're protected.  If your card is lost or stolen, or if your card number is used without your permission, you'll have zero liability for unauthorized purchases.  Exceptions Apply.

ATM WithdrawalsCash Withdrawals
Your Carter Bank & Trust Debit MasterCard card may be used at 1.4 million ATMs around the world.  ATMs allow you to withdraw money from your account.

ATM Surcharge Fees
Most owners of ATMs charge a fee for using their ATM.  The ATM will notify you how much their fee is and allow you to stop before the fee is charged.

Carter Bank & Trust will not charge you for using your card or for using an ATM.  We will simply pass on any fees which third parties may assess.

When you need cash, make a purchase at a store - select "DEBIT", enter you PIN, and request Cash Back.  Most chain stores offer this option which eliminates a stop at the ATM: and No Fees - saving you time and money!
