Unlike most other banks, Presidential does not charge our customers for any domestic ATM/Point of Sale usage. However, many ATM owners apply surcharges for using their ATMs. This surcharge will vary by ATM owner. But remember, Presidential has partnered with Allpoint and MoneyPass to bring you over 88,000 surcharge-free ATMs. It's easy to find a surcharge-free ATM, just Click Allpoint or MoneyPass to search for a surcharge-free ATM near you.

An International ATM-POS transaction fee (International ATM Cash Disbursement Fee or International Service Assessment Fee (ISA)) will be assessed for use of Visa International ATM or POS terminals (foreign transactions.)

 

Chip Technology for Extra Security

Presidential Visa® Debit Cards come with built-in chip technology for additional security and ease of use. When you use your card at a chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip creates a unique, one-time use code for each transaction making it more difficult to successfully counterfeit the card.

Simply insert your card in a chip-activated terminal, follow the prompts and remove your card when the transaction is complete.

If a merchant is not yet chip-activated, or accepts payment from a mobile reader, you can continue to swipe your card, select credit and sign for your purchase.

You can still use your card to get cash, check your balance and more. Simply insert the chip end of your card with the chip facing up. For chip enabled ATMs, your card will remain in the ATM until your transaction is complete.

 

Enhanced Protection with Fraud Monitoring

Your Presidential Bank Visa® Debit Card transactions are reviewed by the free fraud monitoring service which all card transactions for suspicious activity. If a potentially fraudulent transaction takes place, we’ll contact you to verify the transaction(s) and restrict additional transactions, if applicable, to prevent further fraud. All card transactions are monitored for:

  • Purchases outside your normal purchasing patterns
  • Purchases outside of normal time frames or geographical locations
  • Purchases previously identified as potential fraud trends

A third-party fraud monitoring company may contact you on behalf of Presidential to verify transaction(s) to minimize potential fraud.

It is critical that you are contacted as quickly as possible to minimize potential fraud. The Fraud Detection Center will contact you using the telephone numbers on record. Two-way texting utilizes any available text-capable phone number on record to notify you of suspicious transactions. If there are no text-capable phone numbers on file, or we do not receive a reply to the text message, we will use the telephone numbers on record to contact you via voice message to verify the transactions. In the event we are unable to reach you, your card(s) may be blocked until the suspected transactions have been verified.

You may opt-out of text messages at any time by replying STOP to the text message received.
