Debit Card

w/ Interac Flash®

It's easy as 1, 2, 3.

Interac Flash® is the contactless feature of our debit card, that lets you securely and conveniently pay for smaller purchases up to $100.  Simply hold the card in front of the reader and wait for the approved message or listen for the BEEP. Contactless is also referred to as "tap".

Before you use Flash, you'll need to activate it:

  1. ACTIVATE: Use your card to make a purchase by inserting it into a card reader and entering your PIN. This activates Interac Flash.
  2. TAP: When you make your next purchase for under $100, hold your card to the reader or tap it, and listen for the BEEP.
  3. BOOM: Your purchase is now approved.

Specific limits safeguard your money in case of theft or fraud:

  • Single transactions have a limit of $100 or under. If your transaction is over $100, you will be prompted to insert your card and enter your PIN.
  • There is a cumulative spending limit, which means the most you can spend using Flash in consecutive transactions is $200. Once you have reached the $200 limit, you'll be prompted to insert your card and enter your PIN.  This action resets the $200 limit and you can begin using Flash again for another $200.

As a gfcu member, you're also protected by Interac's Zero Liability Policy if your card is lost or stolen. You must contact us right away to let us know.
