Coolest App On the Coast

Eglin Federal Credit Union

838 Eglin Parkway NE, Fort Walton Beach, FL

(850) 862-0111

Eglin Federal Credit Union has a new free mobile app available for members called CardValet® that provides numerous benefits for its debit card users.  The general function of the app is to electronically turn your debit card on and off which thereby allows you to protect your card from fraud/misuse and spending.  

How does one service do all of this?  When your card is turned “on,” the user can control spending by easily setting spending limits for general use or by specifying thresholds by merchant types, such as gas, groceries, or retail stores. Kids can stick to a budget when borrowing mom and dad’s card over the summer, with limits on where and how much they can use it. Parents can monitor all transactions through the app. When you turn your debit card “off,” no purchases will be approved. Innovative transaction controls further protect your debit card by allowing the card to work in specific locations or geographic areas. Real-time alerts are sent to your phone to let you know when your card is used or declined. And with the CardValet app you can easily balance your checking account after a day of shopping.

The app has been staff tested and approved by Eglin Federal Credit Union employees. Eglin Federal Credit Union is the only financial institution to offer this app on the Emerald Coast. To download, go to the Apple App store or Google Play store for your Apple or Android device and search “CardValet.” It’s that simple! 

Cool factors: brand new service, innovative technology, safeguard against fraud, control your spending, user friendly
