Debit Card FAQs

How do I order a replacement or new contactless debit card?

If you already have an Alliant checking account, you can order a contactless card in online banking or in the mobile app. Please ensure the primary address on your account is up to date. If you do not already have an Alliant checking account, you can open a checking account and select the option to order a debit card. It typically takes 14-21 days to receive your Alliant Visa® debit card via U.S. mail. If you need it faster, we offer a fee-based expedited service.

How can I activate my debit card?

You can activate your new debit card instantly online, or in your Alliant mobile banking app under, “Card management.” You can also activate it by calling the number on the sticker on the front of your card.

How long do I have to activate my new card?

To protect your account from fraudulent activity, your new Alliant Visa debit card will be automatically shut down if you have not activated it within 90 days.

How do I know if a checkout uses tap-to-pay?

Checkout payment terminals that use tap-to-pay, contactless cards will display a contactless payment symbol.

Can I use my debit card internationally?

Yes, your Alliant Visa debit card can be used internationally, and Alliant reimburses up to $20 monthly for out-of-network ATM fees, including abroad. But keep in mind that all international purchases and ATM withdrawals will incur an International Service Assessment fee (ISA) of 1%, referenced as the foreign transaction fee on account statements. The ISA fee will be assessed on all transactions where the merchant country differs from the country of the card issuer, even if the transaction was initiated in the United States. The $20 ATM rebate does not apply to the ISA fee.

Can I access my savings account using my debit card?

Yes, you can use your Alliant Visa debit card to access both your savings and checking account at an ATM.
