How does a debit card work with my checking account?
- Instead of writing a check or carrying cash, use your United Southern Bank Visa Debit Card- accepted at millions of retailers worldwide. Debit cards are linked directly to your checking account. When you make a purchase using your debit card, the funds are immediately deducted from your account.
How is a debit card different than a credit card?
