  • If you are traveling outside of the U.S., please note that some countries have restrictions that may limit how you can use your card. Contact the Credit Union for details.
  • Use your card regularly within the first three days of your trip. This helps establish a pattern of usage outside your normal transactions.
  • Make sure to have your SouthPoint App available on your phone to spot check your account use. 
  • Ensure that your card is activated prior to your trip and you know your PIN
  • CardValet offers real-time card controls, helping you manage your finances by specifying how, when and where your card is used with just a few taps on your smartphone.

Life happens. The key is to be prepared. We strongly encourage you to bring a backup card on your trip such as your SouthPoint Visa credit card or another credit card.

Please note that transactions are sometimes blocked based on a particular merchant, merchant location or time of day. If your card doesn’t work at one merchant/machine, it is possible that it will work in a different area/machine/merchant.
