CashPoints Global (CPG) is a non-interest bearing controlled spending account with electronic only access through your CPG card. There are no checks and no paper statements,
and since all transactions are limited to the available funds in the account, no overdraft or NSF fees are incurred. Since the account and card work together, funds can be
added to the account at any time for many different purposes.
Planning to travel abroad or across the country? The CPG card is a convenient way to fund a trip. The CashPoints Global card may take up to a week to receive after opening
the account, so it's best to establish a CPG account several weeks in advance of a planned trip. Once a CPG card is received, additional branch visits are unnecessary as
funds can be added for subsequent trips via secure Member Access, Mobile Access or ASK-SECU voice response. Review our
Cardholder Travel Information
before leaving home.
Like the convenience of shopping or paying your bills online? With no overdraft lines of credit tied to the CPG account, the CPG card is a great option for members who want to
limit the fraud risk exposure. To help reduce fraud, some online merchants participate in the Verified by Visa®
program and require a password. Register the CPG card with
Verified by Visa
to create a personal password.
Heading to college? Students are also ideal candidates for the new CashPoints Global account/card. With a controlled spending account, parents have the option of opening a
CPG account and designating the student as an authorized user of the card. Parents can transfer funds to the card on an as needed basis, forgoing the risk of any overdrafts
that might be incurred by the student.
When you purchase gas "at the pump" using your CashPoints Global card and select "credit" as your payment option, $ will be authorized and held against your account balance until the gas station settles the actual
charge for the amount pumped. To avoid the $ authorization, you may select the "debit" payment option at the pump and enter your PIN or pay for your fuel inside the gas station with the cashier.
Once your gas transaction is complete, the exact amount of your purchase will be held in authorization.
