Build your savings by automatically “rounding up” each debit card purchase with Debit Card Roundup


Turn your Explorers CU Debit Cards on and/or off if your card becomes lost or stolen with the Explorers CU Mobile App


You can choose to receive alerts when your debit or credit card is used for purchases over a specified amount, online transactions, purchases outside the United States, and more. You can even customize the purchase amount threshold—for example, setting it to only receive alerts for purchases above $50.

To set up your Activity Alerts, ensure your Explorers CU app has been updated through Apple or Google Play, then:

  1. Logon to the app
  2. Select Enable Push Notifications
  3. Select Edit Alert Settings
  4. Select which card you want to modify
  5. Select Enable Activity Alerts
  6. Repeat these same steps for each card you want protected


Credit and debit card fraud occurs through a variety of channels. Here are a few things you can do to protect your information:

  • Carry only the cards you need.
  • Cover your hand when entering your PIN.
  • Check for skimmers on ATMS or gas pumps before inserting your card.
  • Be cautious when using your card for online shopping or gaming. Make sure the site is secure and legitimate.
  • Don’t save card information in your web browser.
  • Never give your card information over the phone. Unless you initiated the call and trust the company.
  • Never leave the tip or total line on a signed receipt blank. These may be changed after you signed the receipt.
